The D-5.2 TV audio console represents our top-of-the-line console for live production. The D-5.2 has lots of IFB capability and all the controls you need for live breaking news, play-by-play sports coverage or any fast-paced event.

The D-5.2 is Wheatstone’s top-of-the-line console for major-market live news production or other applications where comprehensive IFB capability is an absolute must. The D-5.2 has dedicated mix-minus assign switches for all 18 mix-minus busses right on each input channel or subgroup. It's this kind of raw capability that makes it the go-to console for election night or those large sporting events. Plus, where other consoles move lesser-used functions to an auxiliary panel or touchscreen, the D-5.2 puts all controls and indicators right at hand. Each input fader strip includes seven alphanumeric displays for quick visual feedback: current source, alternate page source, A&B presets, bus minus destination, channel mode and gain setting.

And, because the D-5.2 is a networked console, you can:

  • Assign any source of any type to any fader
  • Hot-swap components without powering down or disassembling
  • Share I/O with other networked control surfaces
  • Remotely run automation
  • Switch live, on the fly, between air and protect sources on the same fader


The D-5.2 has an impressive list of other features as well, including a “spill” function for each fader for selectively trimming levels within a 5.1 source. Just double-tap the surround mode button and six signals for 5.1 are spread across six separate faders and labeled for you; the motorized faders snap to the current levels. Make your adjustment, turn spill off, and everything switches back to normal.

Wheatstone is synonymous with the finest audio-for-television consoles available today. The D-5.2 uses the battle tested Wheatstone Gibraltar Network router technology as its audio infrastructure, providing networked I/O for AES, analog mic and line level, HD-SDI, MADI, and GPI logic in a full crosspoint routing environment. As with all Wheatstone Gibraltar Network based systems, external control from Ross Overdrive, Grass Valley Ignite, and SONY ELC is fully supported.

The D-5.2 continues Wheatstone’s tradition of building the finest audio tools for television. With an extensive feature set in a very compact frame, you will achieve audibly superior results, whether broadcasting live or in a production environment.

As with all Wheatstone products, D-5.2 is made right here in the USA in our New Bern, NC headquarters, and technical support is available on both coasts.
