The 52/RX Mixing Console, with its 4 to 48 faders, resembles the
layout of its predecessing models RM4200D and RM3200D. At the same time,
it features prominent advantages of the Series 52, e.g. linking via
Ethernet, operation of up to 4 independent mixers with one DSP unit, and
the freely configurable TFT Views. Due to module sizes similar to the
mentioned systems, you can keep your studio furniture and table
installation frames when installing a new Series 52 system.
There are no limitations regarding cable lengths between the control panels and the DSP unit, as the cabling via Ethernet allows bridging of up to 100 m with CAT6-cables. Even larger distances can be realized with a conversion to fibre-optic cables.
Currently, no further modules are planned to scale up the 52/RX series. Thanks to the extensibility of the 52/RX with other Series 52 control and fader modules, including TFT displays, the combination with 52/MX devices offers many possibilities. For instance, studio control panels or complex monitoring panels of the 52/MX series can be added to an 52/RX. It is however important to note that 52/RX and 52/MX have completely different designs and module dimensions (52/MX: 42.5 mm | 52/RX: 40.0 mm - equals e.g. one fader-strip width), which makes it impossible to install 52/RX modules and 52/MX modules in collective frames.
