New Focusrite RedNet Dante Audio Interfaces: A16R MkII and D16R MkII

Focusrite announces the release of two new products in the RedNet line of Dante audio enabled Audio interfaces: RedNet A16R MkII and RedNet D16R MkII. Both models have the same features as their predecessors, including clean conversion and high-quality audio, but have been equipped with level controls for each input and output channel.

The RedNet A16R MkII is a 16×16 Dante analog interface that enables 16 analog audio channels to be activated or deactivated in a Dante Audio-over-IP network. The RedNet D16R MkII is a 16×16 AES3 interface – ideal as an interface between digital audio devices (such as consoles and power amplifiers) and a Dante network.

Both Audio interfaces have two power supplies and primary and secondary networks for redundant operation with audio switching in the event of a power or network failure. This makes them ideal for use in critical areas such as broadcast, live sound, and post-production.

The new functionality enables the precise calibration of all inputs and outputs, which makes it easier to precisely adapt to the connected devices. Changes to the input and output levels – in steps of 1 dB – are made using the RedNet Control software supplied. The new device profiles for RedNet A16R MkII and RedNet D16R MkII in RedNet Control have a trim fader for setting the input and output levels in steps of 1 dB. Additional software controls for dimming and muting offer more flexibility than independent I/O channels.
