The mixer you can now own a modern type of radio mixer for a very attractive price.  

It’s a new carefully handmade piece of precision equipment and well built around proven low noise circuitry.

It is an intelligent mixer with an internal USB control section that comfortably enhances daily use and even has a silence detector built in.

It is a reliable workhorse for the self-op production D.J.  

It has a built in Telephone VoIP functionality, 4 in/out channels of stereo USB and 3 very low noise Mic inputs. 


The Airlite stands for a complete radio system, ideal for ON-AIR, Production and especially streaming to the web. It is built into a heavy duty RF shielded chassis, designed with elegantly rounded corners.

And…“dropped” into your furniture it gives that exciting radio look.

There is hardly no excuse that is keeping you from making radio you always wanted. 

Built with a strong powder-coated front panel for lasting looks, reliable and the result of more than 50 years of experience at D&R.
And.. we now have new silky smooth faders built in.

The Airlite MK2 mixer has 3 balanced, phantom powered mic inputs with inserts for voice processors, 8 stereo line inputs, 4 USB channels  and 1 Telephone VoIP channel.
A Cleanfeed output is available for connection to an external Hybrid.

Only one physical USB connection is the interface for transferring  4 stereo audio channels from and to your PC, plus control data from the control section and for the meter application.

The VoIP Channel 8 has its own USB connector to be able to have your calls coming from another PC. Connection to a second USB connector on your main PC is of course also possible.

Dedicated Talk back to the VoIP channel makes conversation with callers very easy.

The Cue bus is also a communication buss, so the announcer can easily have a discussion with the caller while ON-AIR.

Just hit the two related CUE buttons and you’re talking.

And… when a call comes in your attention is instantly drawn by a clear signal to be seen on the Meter screen.

There is a very musical 3 band Equalizer on channel 1-3.

The stereo Aux send can be selected  pre or post fader.  And all high quality low noise mic inputs have a high quality built in low cut filter.

The master section is designed for Radio.

It houses all the master controls such as the stereo Aux send and return, Control Room Monitor (CRM), Announcer and a high-level, low-impedance, phones output.  Auto Cue provides both the Announcer and CRM outputs to follow the CUE selections. CUE reset cancels all activated Cue selections.

Of course the Control Room Monitors are muted automatically to cut control room level when the D.J. Mic is active. 

A Studio output (announcer) that normally follows the main output can be routed by activating Auto Cue  in a way any Cue signal that is selected can be heard.

Three Talk-back switches individually activate the built-in talkback microphone which has its own gain control for communication to VoIP, Announcer and Auxoutputs.

Talkback can also take place to all outputs at the same time.

The NON STOP button at the top of the design routes USB channel 4 to the program output when activated.
