The DL451 3×8 Modular I/O Unit by Midas is a user-configurable module with a 3×8 XLR format allowing up to 24 audio inputs or outputs. The unit can be used with the Midas XL8 and PRO series of digital mixing systems, or as a standalone AES50 audio interface in a Midas snake and audio distribution systems with remote control via Ethernet. The DL451 Modular I/O has three module slots which can be configured as a combination of analog mic/line in, analog out, and digital in/out (AES/EBU).
