    Is it possible to connect the following: QU24 to Allen Heath AR2412 then connect to an ME-1 and then connect that ME-1 to another ME-1? and that the ME-1’s are still able to operate separately allowing the musicians to create their own mix??

    the price has been dropped on this? Even cheaper than AB168!

    Thanks. So would I even need the AR2412 to begin with? OR could I just run a CAT5 cable from the mixer to the ME-1?

    You can run a ME-1 directly from a Qu, yes.

    Thank you. And to be clear, every ME-1 would still have all the capabilities even if they were daisy-chained to one another? Like from the QU to ME-1 for keyboard player into a ME-1 for the drummer. Would both musicians be able to separately control their ME-1 for what they want to hear individually?
    -Thanks.

    The only capability lost from daisy chaining is the PoE powering. PoE has to be starred from a ME-U or PoE capable switch.

    Each ME-1 creates its own individual mix from the 40 channels coming down the wire.

    @topdj: Are you asking for the ME-1 or the AR2412?
    The ME-1 does not have many IO and only provides internal mixdown from 40 incoming streams.
    And, yes, the AR2412 recently had a significant price drop (at least in US), and you get more IO for less money compared to the AB168. The AB168 has phantom power LEDs per socket and comes in a rugged box, while the AR2412 is better mounted in a rack…

    I will be getting a 2412 soon The only reason I think they dropped is the x32 rack boxes prices

    my 16 is UK my 24 is China, my 16 has a network heat issue took me a while to isolate it. I want a qu32 but My dealer says get an x32 cheap like 2199, I have always not been a fan of beringer. not sure how much better the m32 is but I think the Qu32 is a solid performer.

    at least x32/m32 and Qu32 follow totally different ideologies regarding workflow. I personally like the 1:1 relationship between faders and channels. No need to plan layer assignments and later check colorful mini-displays to verify I’m on the correct channel. GLD and iLive are too complicated for my brain as well… 😉
