Seamless ULTRANET Integration

The world-renowed engineeres at Klark Teknik, MIDAS, Turbosound and Behringer have combined together to create revolutionary technology. Now you can transmit up to 16 independent channels of 24-bit digital audio and control data via a single CAT5 cable between compatible digital devices; including I/O stage boxes, powered loudspeakers and personal monitoring systems. ULTRANET creates a powerful digital eco-system that gives you unparalleled control over every element of your audio production environment from one convenient location.


The P16-I input module features two 8-channel ADAT optical inputs with auto detect and priority select for use with existing ADAT equipment. Additionally, 16 balanced TRS audio inputs can be used to send audio from analog outputs to your P16-M mixers. An onboard switch allow you to choose from 4 gain positions per channel, while status LEDs on each channel provide at-a-glance monitoring.

Intuitive Installation

A basic installation consists of one P16-I input module which connects to the main mixing console and up to six P16-M personal mixers. All of the equiment can be connected together using standard audio cables and CAT 5e cables.
