LD Systems ZONE X 1208

The LD Systems ZONE X 1208 gives you everything you need for complex installations with flexible routing options and automated processes. Boasting DSP Hybrid architecture, the ZONE X 1208 can adapt to your sound system for different circumstances. Simply choose one of the different DSP templates and then use the event scheduler to set up calendar-managed workflows with automated preset options.

With everything you need, the ZONE X 1208 has 13 balanced mic line inputs with low-noise microphone preamplifiers and switchable 48V phantom power. As well as 8 balanced line outputs available. There are also 8 GPI and GPO logic ports that you can use for automated processes and integrating third-party devices.

The front panel with only 1 RU looks very tidy. While the ZONE X 1208 is easy to set up and manage via Ethernet thanks to the Xilica Designer software. On top of that, there’s an additional REMOTE bus connection that means the X 1208 is already equipped for future remote panels and paging microphones.

It’s also possible to install an Ethernet + Dante card with 64 x 64 channels as an upgrade for audio over IP applications.

Above all, for routing and processing different mics and speaker groups, the Zone X 1208 is the perfect choice.
