RedNet D16R AES is a 1U, 19in rack-mount Dante interface featuring 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from the Dante audio network. Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifi ers or any other AES3 equipped audio equipment and any Dante network, RedNet D16R has SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) on each input pair allowing plug-and-play operation with any AES3 source. Word Clock I/O and DARS (Digital Audio Reference Signal) connections allow synchronisation with a wide range of external sources and hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players.

PSU and Ethernet redundancy
Dual locking etherCON Ethernet ports are provided, with several operating modes including daisy-chaining and redundancy confi rmed by front-panel indicators. The D16R is fitted with two separate power supplies with fault detection capability, with separate power input sockets (with retaining clips) on the rear of the unit. Power supply status is indicated both remotely and on the front panel. The unit features a rugged, roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality. In addition, it offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor for a full 16 channels of I/O.

AES59 Standard Interface Connections
Two DB25 connectors each provide eight channels of combined I/O to the AES59 standard, allowing speedy interconnection with other DB25-connected or XLR-based equipment by use of standard DB25 to XLR cables. The rear-panel XLR female input can be used either as a DARS sync source for the Dante system, or as an AES3 audio source replacing input channels 1-2 on the DB25 connectors.
