This full-featured IP console is ideal for mission-critical control rooms. The LX-24 offers a logically arranged control surface, superb visual feedback, and powerful monitoring facilities. 

From a physical standpoint the LX-24 is a low-profile surface and does not require a cutout in your furniture, so it's easy to place and move as your facility grows or is reconfigured. It's a fully modular control surface, with each individual fader module hot-pluggable so that a damaged module can be replaced even while the console is on the air. Each fader provides access to four stereo busses plus four pre-fader AUX sends, and a stereo cue bus. There are four dedicated mix-minus busses in addition to the bus-minus feed that's also available from each fader. Rounding out the module are an LED source name display, an A/B source selector, a SET button for access to additional functions, and two programmable soft buttons. 

High resolution metering with integrated overload indicators keep you in touch with your levels, while LED rings on the AUX send and pan controls give you instant visual confirmation of your settings. Snapshots of the LX-24's surface setup can be saved and recalled easily to allow configuration for many different shows or studio applications.

A VGA output allows even more information to be displayed, and a USB mouse and keyboard can be connected to access console configuration and other functions onscreen. A digital clock/timer is included.

LX-24's monitoring facilities are extensive. There is a control room output, supplemented by two studio outputs and a stereo cue bus. Cue speakers and amplifier are built in, as is a headphone output with amplifier. 

Wheatstone processing facilities such as EQ and dynamics are also on board and available at each fader.

The LX-24 is designed for use with Wheatstone’s WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network. An IP88E Mix Engine BLADE provides the audio mix functionality; additional BLADEs can be added for inputs and outputs in a variety of digital and analog formats.

PHYSICAL DIMENSIONS:

LX-24 modules are 14" long x 1.5" wide. Standard LX-24 frames accommodate from 17 to 33 modules depending on the frame size.

All LX-24 frames are 1.9" (5 cm) high at the front, 5" (13 cm) high at the rear, and 19.7" (50 cm) from front to back.

The above dimensions are based on counter-top mounting; the LX-24 can optionally be dropped into a counter cut-out which will lower the above counter height by .75" (2 cm).

INCLUDED WITH CONSOLE

Every LX-24 console comes complete with frame, meterbridge with meters and CUE speakers (meter complement is dependent on frame size), SEND/PAN/TIMER display, a set of 4 monitor modules, one PSE-2 power supply and cable, headphone jack bracket with cable, documentation, and number of input modules as ordered.

 

PSE-2 Power Supply

Clean and proper power is key to the great performance you’ve come to expect from Wheatstone. It would be easy to just purchase over-the-counter power supplies for our LX-24. But we don’t. In order to maintain our high level of quality we've designed and built a dedicated separate rackmount supply.

 

Headphone Pigtail

We know that headphone jacks are seldom located where you need them to be, so every LX-24 comes with this handy pigtail and heavy-duty flange with a TRS jack. Just plug it into the board and mount the brushed steel flange where you need it (such as under your desk, as pictured above). Voila! Your headphone jack is exactly where you want it.
