EtherSound is the digital audio and control transfer protocol of choice for many modern live sound applications. Now with a single Yamaha MY16-ES64 card you can add 16 channels of bidirectional EtherSound connectivity to a range of Yamaha professional audio devices that accept mini-YGDAI expansion cards. Simply add one, two, or three MY16-EX expansion cards to the core MY16-ES64 card to increase the EtherSound channel capacity to 32, 48, or 64 channels. As EtherSound is bidirectional, MY16-ES64 and MY16-EX cards work on both ends of the system. You could, for example, equip your Yamaha digital mixer with an MY16-ES64 card and up to 3 MY16-EX cards to provide the required EtherSound input and output capability, and install complementary MY16-ES64 and MY16-EX cards into on-stage Yamaha TXn-series power amplifiers for a clean Ethernet-only connection from console to power amplifiers. For input you could use Yamaha AD8HR remotely-controllable head amplifiers connected via a Yamaha NAI48-ES EtherSound Network Audio Interface. But of course there are many other EtherSound device options as well; you might want to use Yamaha DME Digital Mixing Engines on your audio network, or a growing number of devices from other manufacturers. And since EtherSound is based on Ethernet you can use standard high-speed Ethernet hubs and routers to configure your network to meet your specific system requirements.
EtherSound: Optimum Digital Audio Transfer for Live Sound EtherSound is rapidly becoming a favorite choice for audio networking in live-sound applications because, while allowing high-quality bidirectional transfer of as many as 64-channels of 24-bit 48 kHz digital audio over a single Ethernet cable, it is easy to set up and offers extremely low latency. Using highperformance Cat-5 Ethernet cables* you can reliably transfer audio and remote control signals for compatible devices such as AD8HR remote head amplifiers over distances of up to 100 meters with no errors or degradation.
