LX-24 Radio Console

Versatile low-profile, tabletop control surface with on-air serviceability to boot. The LX-24 is capable, unflappable and is hot swappable down to the individual fader.

Go with the flow or create your own moves. This full-on IP console runs rings around other consoles for mission-critical control rooms. The LX-24 is capable, unflappable and hot swappable down to the individual fader. 

This  IP console has total recall of all your settings with overload indicators that are right where they’re supposed to be. It’s sleek, it’s versatile, and it’s low profile, so no tabletop cutouts needed here. The LX-24's low profile and tabletop form factor fits into almost any studio. Just plug the LX-24 into your WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, and quickly assign any source of any type to any fader anywhere in your network. Dance shoes optional!

Each fader provides access to four stereo busses, plus four pre-fader AUX sends, a stereo CUE bus, and four mix-minuses. There's also a bus-minus output from each fader. An LED source name display, an A/B source selector, and two programmable soft buttons are also available, and a SET button provides access to assignable controls in the master section. Snapshots of the LX-24’s configuration can be saved and recalled at the touch of a button, making setup for different shows or dayparts a snap. Modern niceties such as VGA and USB connectivity are included; PC monitoring and mouse operation welcome. Full Vorsis EQ and mic processing also on tap.

The LX-24 meter bridge features three sets of bright, ultra-high resolution LED meters, as well as LED talkbacks for auxiliary levels and pan control. A digital clock/timer is also included. The LX-24 has control room and headphone outputs with level control and source selection, as well as two independent studio monitor outputs. Stereo CUE speakers are built into the meter bridge.

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.

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.
