E-1 Radio console

The E-1 control surface has everything any large-scale console has but in half the footprint -- and cost. It's great in standalone and fully networked roles.

Finally, a small IP control surface that fits into even your most cramped news booth or voicetracking room. The E-1 control surface for our WheatNet-IP network has everything any large-scale console has, but in half the footprint and cost. It's available in a variety of fader configurations.

With the E-1, we wanted to create a control surface that brought the most popular features of our E-Series to a self-contained chassis that included a monitor and trackpad so that complete control was immediately accessible. In doing so, we’ve created a very compact control surface which, when coupled with our ip88cb Console Audio BLADE, creates a complete, standalone broadcast mixer that’s network-ready. 

Whether you need to outfit one control room or several, using minimum space and adhering to a tight budget, the E-1 is for you. With its small footprint, built-in touch pad, and full feature set, the E-1 puts the power of a much larger console into much less space.

Comfortable as a standalone workstation (when used with an ip88cb) or as a part of the WheatNet-IP network, the E-1 is ready for the future. The compact E-1 Control Surface Console and associated ip88cb Console Audio BLADE provide all the networked control, mixing, and I/O needed for small to mid-sized studios at a price comparable to similar sized standalone analog consoles.

The E-1 features an integrated LCD Monitor for metering and control, a streamlined user interface with password-protected access to complex functions via LCD display and touchpad, and 4 Main Mix busses as well as Control Room and Studio Monitor outputs with selectable sources from the audio network. Complex mix-minus setups are made simple thanks to per channel bus-minus outputs with selectable reference mix and talkback interrupt.

The E-1 offers incredible mix-minus flexibility, with a mix-minus output from every input channel that can use any console bus as its reference mix. Each channel also has direct to source talkback and auto-switching between on-air and offline mix-minus. Its 99 show presets, programmable soft switches, router based source and monitor control, and multiple frame sizes all make the E-1 an ideal addition for any studio size and use. 

The E-1 is designed and built completely in our New Bern, NC facility. Utilizing the finest materials available - from the electronic components to the P+G faders – no corners have been cut to bring you our best at a price that works for your budget. The way we see it is, regardless of price point, you deserve the absolute best we can give you.

PSE-1 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 E-Series Consoles. But we don’t. In order to maintain our high level of quality we've designed and built a dedicated separate rackmount supply for our E-1 surfaces.


IP-88CBE Console Audio BLADE

The IP88CBE provides powerful interface options, including four AES inputs, four stereo analog inputs, four AES outputs, and four stereo analog outputs on RJ45s; control room and studio stereo analog outputs on XLRs, two mic level inputs with gain trim and switchable phantom power on XLRs; cue and headphone outputs on both RJ45 and 1/4" TRS and 12 GPI logic ports on RJ45, plus EQ and Dynamics processing.
