Yamaha RPio222 I/O rack

Yamaha has released the RPio222 I/O rack, a compact variation of its RPio622 I/O rack for the Rivage PM10 digital mixing system. The availability of two I/O Rack types is intended to provide easier, more flexible set-up of distributed I/O systems.

The compact RPio222 is a dedicated I/O rack for the Rivage PM10, which occupies half the rack space (5U) of the larger RPio622, offering more versatile placement options. The front panel features two RY slots that can accommodate dedicated analogue input, analogue output, or digital I/O cards. Two Mini-YGDAI slots are also provided, offering compatibility with an range of more than 30 expansion cards. Two rear-panel HY slots allow installation of I/O cards that support TwinLANe, the Rivage PM10 system’s backbone protocol, and Dante for connection to additional network devices.

The RY slot-compatible RY16-ML-Silk analogue input card is an important factor in the sonic quality of the Rivage PM10 , featuring hybrid microphone preamplifiers that combine an analogue stage built on Yamaha’s sound philosophy and Rupert Neve Designs transformer circuitry and Silk processing.

Two independent power supply units are built in, providing power supply redundancy for maximum reliability in critical applications. A future firmware update will make it possible to connect up to eight RPio622 and RPio222 units to a single TwinLANe ring.

The RPio222 offers significantly enhanced flexibility when designing Rivage PM10 systems for live sound, live broadcast, hall, theatre and other applications.

‘As an I/O expansion unit for the control surface, for applications that demand portability or a compact I/O for distributed systems, the RPio222 offers enhanced flexibility for a variety of situations,’ says Yamaha Pro Audio Business Unit Director, Ken Hiraoka. ‘We hope that the RPio222 will increase the flexibility and utility of Rivage PM10 systems in an even broader range of working environments.’

The RPio222 is currently scheduled to begin shipping in Q2 2016.
