RCF Launches New and Updated Products at NAMM 2020



RCF M 20X


Desktop Digital Mixer: M 20X Series

Package includes 16 preamps, multiple recording options and intuitive GUI

Based on feedback received, RCF has now developed a complete, versatile range of four further M series mixers with added functionality—the M 20X, M 20R, M 20XD, M 20 RD—from the ground up. The DSP-rich consoles are fully recallable, with 11 motorized faders and 16 remote controlled preamps contained in a compact, ruggedly constructed chassis.


RCF M 20R


The new M 20 series features 20 input channels with 16 high quality Mic preamps, with eight XLR and eight Combo inputs, two TRS Inputs, a Stereo Input on Mini Jack. There are 10 Output channels, with eight XLR and two TRS as well as two Main output XLR’s. All outputs are routable.

The rear panel contains AES-EBU stereo output, USB audio 24x24 multi-channel interfaces, and LAN port to connect external access point for wireless remote control. There is a 5-inch capacitive high contrast touch screen with five encoders, for control of all the mixer’s capabilities.

In addition, there are four Function buttons that recall the main pages on the screen and eight programmable User Keys. The motorized faders include 10 for Inputs/Outputs, and one for the main master mix. There are four fader layers (Input 1-10, Input 11-20, four FX return and six Custom faders, while the fourth is dedicated to the 10 MIX outputs).

All channels contain hi-pass, gate, 4-band parametric EQ, compressor (ch 1-16) and gate, with four internal studio-quality Z.CORE FX engines.

The other key features of these M 20 mixers are three options for various multi-track real time recording and playback, with 20 tracks on SD card, in addition to a 24 x 24 channel USB 2.0 interface and stereo recording and playback on a USB key.

Of the mixer designations, the M20 X is the standard device, while the M 20 XD adds a Dante interface for Audio over IP networking. There are 3U rack versions of each without the faders (M20 R and M20 RD) offering the same functionality and remote-control capabilities.

The M20 X represents the first time RCF has produced a complete digital mixer with motorized faders, and with its compact form factor will appeal to rental companies, musicians, as a conference system or sub-mixer for larger installations.

The next development will be an extended Control App for both iOS and Android. Via the Attach function users will have access to a larger touch surface and expanded screen to enhance the mixing experience.


RCF F 24XR Digital Mixer


F 24XR Digital Mixer Completes F Series

Drawing on the heritage of the widely-acclaimed analog E series, RCF’s new generation analog F series initially raised the stakes, offering high sound quality through a choice of four formats, ranging from six channels up to 16, all devices packed with effects, housed in a sturdy metal frame.

Now it has gone bigger still, completing the F series with the launch of the F 24XR, boasting an unprecedented number of inputs and preamps.

The new mixer features 18 mic preamps (eight channels more than the F 16XR), 16 line inputs, four stereo inputs, two stereo bus outputs, and six compressors. It contains 16 multi-FX presets, single control compressor and is supplied with USB interface for stereo recording, 3-band EQ with selectable frequency and 4 Aux sends (one available for the internal FX engine).

In common with other models in the series, the F 24XR boasts the same rugged construction, metal chassis and plastic side cheeks for portability.


RCF AYRA PRO 5


AYRA Pro Studio Range - More Power and FiRPHASE

RCF has announced a new complete line of AYRA near-field studio monitors, which has been designated the AYRA PRO. This now replaces the existing AYRAs.

The new range includes four models—three 2-way speakers and one woofer, equipped with new components. The full range PRO5 (5”), PRO6 (6”) and PRO8 (8”) are joined by the PRO10SUB (10”) subwoofer.


RCF AYRA PRO10 SUB


The main feature of these monitors is the high power of the Class-D amplification — respectively 100W, 120W, 140W for the 8”, and 300W for the subwoofer — almost double that of its competitors.

All monitors have DSP on board and the FiRPHASE algorithm is likewise loaded as standard — the first monitor in its class to install this — to ensure 0° linear phase for time-aligned sound emission of the entire spectrum. This feature provides detail in the reference sound, with a real panorama of the stereo sound field, where the phantom center is perfectly perceivable.

In addition to professional stereo or multichannel use, the new AYRA PRO range can be used in high-end AV systems or hi-fi devices.


RCF MC-1 Monitor Controller


MC-1

RCF has introduced the MC-1 Monitor Controller, designed to manage two couples of stereo monitors. This features two stereo inputs on combo connectors (TRS+XLR) on Input A and TRS Jack and Mini-Jack on Input B, as well as two pairs of XLR for output. Also featured is a DIM (Mute) button, reducing the sound by - 20dB, a mono switch, and a central generous machined main volume control. Being passive, with no external power needed, it has no colorations and is inherently transparent from distortions.
