Product Description



With superb sound quality, powerful functions, expandability and intuitive operation; the V-Mixing System continues to introduce new possibilities to the live mixing market. Now after its 2007 debut and as a direct response to actively listening to our users, the next generation V-Mixer has arrived. Equipped with a newly developed mixing engine, the M-480 provides an enhanced level of powerful and flexible audio processing.


Mixing Channels60 total – 48 channels, 6 stereo returns
InputsUp to 90
REAC A: up to 40 depending on Digital Snake head connected
REAC B: up to 40 depending on Digital Snake head connected
Console: 8 XLR + RCA stereo
* Using the S-4000M Merge Unit allows up to 4 Digital Snake heads to be connected to one REAC port. This will allow for up to 160 inputs to be access (40 inputs x 4 ports). Using an S-4000M on each port will allow the M-480 to see up to 320 inputs in addition to the 10 on the console.OutputsUp to 90
REAC A: up to 40 unique physical outputs depending on Digital Snake configuration
REAC B: up to 40 unique physical outputs depending on Digital Snake configuration
Console: 8 XLR + stereo S/PDIF
* All output fully assignable from 24 different patch points.
+ REAC A or B can be split limitless times by using a standard Ethernet switch such as the S-4000D.

*XLR type: 1 GND, 2 HOT, 3: COLD * Phantom power: DC +48 V(unloaded maximum), 14 mA (maximum load) (All XLR type inputs)
* LAMP power: DC +12 V/500 mA
* When a S-4000D REAC Splitter & Power Distributor or a switching hub is used in-line with REAC cables, the network latency will increase by the amount of processing delay introduced by the splitting device itself. The actual delay is dependent upon the specifications of the splitting device, though the maximum delay amount for a single splitting device could be about 200 microseconds.
* EtherCon is the registered trade mark of Neutrik®
