Meyer Sound Galileo GALAXY 816 Network Platform

8-input, 16-output digital processor - offers comprehensive control over Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems

Product Description

The Meyer Sound Galileo GALAXY 816 Network Platform is an audio processing and loudspeaker management tool that offers comprehensive control of Meyer Sound loudspeaker systems. Leveraging open‑source AVB technology along with powerful audio processing, GALAXY processors provide complete system management in one platform, making it an ideal choice for a full range of applications from touring to installs.

The GALAXY 816 processor is Milan certified, providing plug‑and‑play network interoperability with other Milan-certified devices via AAF and CRF AVB streams. Milan certification guarantees all Milan audio over the AVB network will arrive on-time with a fixed latency. Milan AVB reserves network bandwidth which cannot be preempted by other network traffic. Milan-certified GALAXY processors support the specified network redundancy— guaranteeing interoperability with other Milan devices.

Users can control the GALAXY 816 processor using Compass Control Software (hosted on a Mac or PC) or via the Compass Go iPad App. Compass Control Software provides a complete toolkit for audio routing, system optimization, processing, and monitoring. Its Product Integration feature ensures the phase characteristics of different loudspeaker models are matched when they are combined in the same system, providing the most coherent summation possible.

The GALAXY 816 processor features a 96 kHz audio processing sample rate, and the A/D and D/A converters are 24 bits/96 kHz. Processing tools for inputs include gain, delay, 5-band parametric EQ, and 5-band U-Shaping EQ. Output processing tools include gain, delay, polarity reversal, 10-band parametric EQ, 5-band U-Shaping EQ, Low-Mid Beam Control (LMBC), atmospheric correction, and simultaneous high- and low-pass filters. Built-in summing and delay matrices allow users to easily assign gain and delay values at each routing cross point, enabling any single loudspeaker to serve as an output for multiple, independently processed input signals.

The rear panel includes two SIM bus ports for direct connection to Meyer Sound’s SIM audio analyzer, allowing the GALAXY 816 processor to function as a line switcher for the analyzer. With this capability, users can take measurements from any selection of GALAXY 816 processor inputs and outputs without patching beyond a single connection to SIM.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
