The DW5066 is an all-in-one wall panel controller for multi-zone digital audio matrix systems and multi-media digital audio mixers. It offers various control functions such as audio source selection whereby the routing can be changed or specific mixing presets ('scenes' - only for M2) can be triggered. The control shall be done using the versatile rotatable push dial whereby other settings such as volume, tone control, phantom power, muting, ... also can be made. A local line and microphone level input allows the connection of additional input units to be patched with the matrix / mixer while one of them can also be converted to a local line output. The additional inputs allow connection of a CD-player, MP3 player or any other audio source as local input while a microphone can be connected for making announcements. Both line and microphone audio input can be mixed locally using two push-lock potentiometers and 15V phantom power can be enabled to the microphone input for powering condenser microphones. The audio output function can be very useful in applications where a local audio output is required carrying the same audio signal as one of the direct outputs. This can be very useful for monitoring, recording or other system expansion purposes. A 2.5" graphical LCD display ensures a user-friendly experience for controlling the system and the audio connections are performed using XLR (microphone) and stereo RCA (line) connectors.

When the inputs on the DW5066 wall panel are not used at a certain moment, the GAIN potentiometers should be turned down, and the phantom power on the microphone should be disabled.
For the DW5066, you can reach up to 300m using UTP CAT6 cabling.
Using the CP43ARP or CP45ARP repeater you can have up to 600m.
