Brio is the most powerful and compact digital broadcast audio console in its class. It has a comprehensive broadcast feature set to support a wider breadth of broadcasters, and the same market-leading levels of quality and customer support which Calrec is renowned for.
The smallest in Calrec’s Bluefin2 family, Brio’s control surface is unlike any other console. At only 892mm wide with a 36 dual-layer fader surface, Brio is entirely self-contained with analogue and digital I/O, and GPIO, built into the surface. Additional expansion I/O slots are also fitted to allow for further I/O to be connected. A Hydra2 module can be fitted to connect to and share audio over Calrec’s Hydra2 network.
This means Hydra2’s sophisticated management facilities can be utilised for network-wide control, including interfacing with multiple Video and Audio over IP networks such as SMPTE2022, Dante, AES67, Ravenna and Soundgrid. This protects the system against any future formats that may emerge and allows the console to sit on multiple networks simultaneously if desired.
With lots of delay resource, dynamics, integrated talkback, and multiple monitor outputs, Brio is broadcast-ready with no compromise or workarounds.
The H2Hub provides a network distribution node that can be used to connect from a router up to 4 x external connections which may be I/O boxes or other Hubs to form a local array of I/O connectivity.
A single connection from any router can be switched via the H2Hub to multiple I/O units, and even another H2Hub if further I/O distribution is required – in fact 3 x H2Hubs can be daisy-chained together. The H2Hub’s connection and distribution options make it ideal for forming ad hoc networks, especially when combined with the Fieldboxes and other Calrec I/O infrastructure.
Hydra2 provides seamless, scalable audio networking of audio mixing consoles with routers and I/O interfaces, allowing for a large numbers of inputs and outputs to be shared and controlled irrespective of location. Hydra2 does not compromise audio quality, performs with negligible latency and is founded on comprehensive, built-in fault detection and redundancy. Many of the world’s most successful broadcasters rely on Hydra2 infrastructure for live on-air application in both fixed and mobile installations every day.
At the heart of Hydra2 is the 8192² Calrec router (4096² on Summa and Artemis Light). Networks become more advanced when multiple routers are connected together to add additional mixing consoles, or to increase the amount of I/O connections available. Routers, mixing consoles and I/O can all be easily connected to the network as and when needed.
Hydra2 provides 1-to-n routing; input sources may be routed to any number of destinations in mixed formats, removing the need for external splits, distribution amplifiers and format convertors. Sources can be routed to multiple consoles, to multiple DSP inputs on each console and directly to output destinations all at the same time.
I/O units connect to a Hydra2 router via a fibre link and can carry 512 channels of 24 bit 48KHz audio in each direction simultaneously, along with control and error detection data. Bandwidth between routers can be increased in multiples of 512 channels by adding additional Hydra2 links between them.
The two-channel CEDAR DNS 2 hosts a DNS algorithm that requires nothing more than switching on the Learn function that identifies and adapts to the background noise, and dialling in the amount of noise attenuation required. Retaining the near-zero latency of all its predecessors, CEDAR DNS 2 is suitable for use in all situations.
CEDAR DNS 2 offers analogue line and microphone inputs (the latter with optional 48V phantom powering), an AES3/AES11 digital input and both analogue and digital outputs.

The 40mm KA 40 Sphere Attachments from Schoeps is designed for use with omnidirectional microphones. It can be used when capturing audio in various environments such as recording studios, live sound and more. It creates the illusion of closer microphone placement so that greater miking distances can be achieved.
The KA 40 is designed to capture more detail especially for orchestras or choruses. The effect is partly due to an increase in directivity, but mainly to the increased midrange response. The low-frequency response remains undiminished. Sold as a single unit.
• Sphere attachment for omnidirectional microphone
• This sphere attachment is ideally suited for the Decca Tree
The MKH 20 is usually used as a main microphone for orchestras and solo instruments, and picks up the natural acoustics of the room, though it does have a much wider range of applications as omni-directional microphones do not suffer from ‘proximity effect’.
- Exceptionally flat frequency response, switchable for near and diffuse field applications
- High-frequency response can be accentuated by means of a pressure build-up ring
- Slightly increasing directivity at high frequencies to adjust tonal balance
- Exceptionally low inherent self-noise
- Transformerless and fully floating balanced output
- Switchable pre-attenuation
- Black, anodised light metal body
The RM-MC4L has four stereo balanced analogue inputs with a single stereo balanced output, all using XLR connectors.

The RM-MC4L has the same master volume control, CUT, DIM and light control functions and adjustments as the RM-MC1L unit.
The CL-6 Input Expander from Sound Devices adds 6 balanced, line-level inputs to the 664 Production Mixer. The Input Expander connects to the top or bottom of the 664 and includes 6 full-sized fader controls, PFL control and highpass control. It also features dedicated L and R routing buttons for Inputs 7-12 on the 664 Mixer.
The large, backlit Record and Stop buttons provide convenient access to transport functions.

A professional 100v line amplifier with a 60w output for commercial applications. Being 2U in height but only half width makes this one of the most compact amplifiers on the market today. Two microphone inputs in the form of 6.3mm jacks and a line input is all controlled via the rotary dials on the front panel. Speaker connections are binding posts and can be found on the rear of the amplifier. This amplifier can also be used in an 8Ohm configuration.
The AKG C414 B ULS is about as versatile as a condenser microphone can be, which is what’s made them a studio staple consistently over three decades. With four selectable polar patterns (cardioid, supercardioid, bidirectional, omnidirectional) on the front and three-position switches on the rear for attenuation and bass rolloff, the C414 B ULS is also the last of the 414s to make use of an output transformer. When compared to the more modern iterations of this mic (TLII, XLS, XLII, C214 and C314), the ULS has a bit more vibe and character to the sound while retaining that “natural” quality that’s made every version of the 414 what it is today.
The C414 XLS multipattern condenser microphone offers a choice of nine polar patterns for the perfect sonic capture for every application. A peak hold LED displays even the shortest overload peaks. For live-sound applications and permanent installations, all controls can easily be disabled for trouble-free use.
The C414 XLS maintains the sonic character of the legendary C414 B-ULS, the most popular AKG C414 version since 1971. Engineered for highest linearity and neutral sound, it has been the most versatile large-diaphragm microphone for decades.
