Solaro XIO 16

Expand your networked audio system for large venues, or tackle high volumes of local analog I/O in a centralized processing design.

Solaro XIO 16 is a 16-slot expansion unit for Solaro FR1-D processors requiring additional I/O above that contained in their local hardware. Solaro XIO 16 can also be used as a Dante endpoint to convert analog audio to/from networked AV signals. Mounting into a 1U 19” space, Solaro XIO 16 configures through Xilica Designer and enables up to 32 channels of analog audio in a single frame, or up to 64 channels of GPIO. Solaro XIO 16 is compatible with all Solaro Series XC I/O cards in any combination, and is supported by the Xilica Five Year Limited Warranty.

  • Transmits local audio sources over Dante using standard network infrastructure without special switches.
  • Expands Solaro FR1-D processor I/O capabilities, or can be deployed in local rooms to handle a high volume of analog audio sources with centralized processing.
  • ETL, CE, FCC certified, and backed by the Xilica Five Year Limited Warranty.
