Axia Audio RAQ
Apr 24, 2012 1:00 AM, By Erin Shipps, senior associate editor
A rackmount 6-channel IP mixer, RAQ is designed to meet the rigorous demands of newscasts or news assembly. RAQ is well-suited to any application for which a rack- or turret-mounted mixer is needed. Paired with the fanless Axia QOR.16 console engine, RAQ is perfect for standalone operation, but can also connect to Axia Livewire networks to share audio with other studios. Setup is easy: RAQ connects to the QOR.16 with a single cable. QOR.16 is an "integrated console engine" which contains analog, AES/EBU and Livewire I/O, GPIO logic ports, console power supply and CPU, and a zero-configuration network switch with Gigabit. A single QOR.16 engine can be used with two Axia RAQ consoles.
What the Pick Hits judges had to say:
"Lots of capability in 4RU."
"Sidekicks and newsrooms have an IP audio option on my network now."
