The SRM66 provides a cost effective solution for systems requiring any combination of zone distribution, room combining, and remote level control. Split, route, and mix functions are implemented with a six input, six output matrix mixer. The SRM 66 allows independent routing and mix-level adjustment of any Input to any Output.
Control consists of a backlit LCD, five buttons and a Data wheel. All programming is accomplished using eleven easily accessible edit pages. Six pages control Output programming, four for Group programming and one for Memory functions.
Inputs and Outputs are line-level balanced and equipped with Euroblock connectors. Rear panel Gain switches on each Input and Output allow -10 dBV or +4 dBu sensitivity. Front panel Mix Input Headroom LEDs indicate the remaining headroom for each of the six inputs at 4 dB and 16 dB.
Programmable Limiters on each Output prevent mixer overload. If Output level exceeds the Limit Threshold, all six mix levels for the given Output are reduced, thus maintaining the proper mix.
Each Output features an internally switchable 2nd-order 80 Hz Highpass filter. These filters are useful in conjunction with constant-voltage line transformers or small sound-reinforcement speakers.
The SRM 66 uses Output Groups to 'link' attenuation levels and Limiter gain reduction of one or more Outputs. Outputs may be assigned to one of six Output Groups. For example, a stereo Output pair would typically be assigned to the same Output Group. This ensures that they limit together and are controlled by a common Output Group attenuation or Remote. Output Group Levels are the only parameters not affected by Memory changes.
Outputs are assigned to any one of the six possible Output Groups or none. Remotes are then assigned to any one of the six possible Output Groups or to the Master Group. The Master Group is configured by assigning any number of the six possible Groups to the Master Remote. For example, say you have a six zone system and have a Remote assigned to control the level in each zone. You can then assign any number of the Output Groups to the Master Remote, allowing all zones to be controlled by one Remote.
Mix configurations are saved in up to 24 Memories. These non-volatile Memories are stored in EEPROM, requiring no batteries. Memories may be recalled via the front panel LCD screen or the rear panel Memory Recall Port (MRP). The MRP allows remote contact closures to recall any of the 24 Memories. Advanced MRP users can completely program the MRP closure-to-memory-mapping functions via SRM Exchange software (see RaneNote 142 'Advanced Applications of the Ingenious SRM 66 & SR 1L'). The MRS 4, RCP 3 and RCP 4 accessories make an easy installation for the MRP (see below).
The DSC 1 Serial Converter provides a bridge to connect a PC's RS-232 port and the RIP (Remote Interface Port) used in the SRM 66. Coupled with SRM Exchange software, the DSC 1 allows an exchange of settings between an SRM 66 and the PC. Once the settings are obtained by the PC they can be manipulated, stored in a file, printed for future reference or sent to another SRM 66.
