Focusrite RedNet D16R Multi Channel AES3 Dante Interface

About RedNet:

Rednet is Focusrite's leading range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harness the power of Audinate's trusty Dante digital audio networking system. This system brings top-quality studio sound to any modern audio application. At its core, RedNet is very versatile almost zero latency audio distribution system that can be utilized for many purposes. These purposes include expanding I/O channel count, interface digital parts, and/or connect between Pro Tools|HD or MADI and the Dante audio network. Overall, the RedNet audio networking system functions with a trusted and time-tested, widely-compatible technology. It can also be linked with a large selection of other comapanies' Dante- compatible gear. Technically speaking, the RedNet interfaces perfroms amazingly. Modern, sleek and attractive designs add to their value.

D16R Multi Channel AES3 Dante Interface Overview:

RedNet D16R AES is a 1U, 19in rack-mount Dante interface that features 16 channels of AES/EBU connectivity to and from the Dante audio network. Ideal for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers or any other AES3-equipped audio equipment and any Dante network, RedNet D16R has SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) on each input pair enabling plug-and-play operation with any AES3 source. Word Clock I/O and DARS (Digital Audio Reference Signal) connections enable synchronisation with a wide array of external sources and hardware, while S/PDIF I/O allows the integration of equipment such as CD or solid state recorders/players. The D16R features a tough, durable, and roadworthy exterior plus a high-quality internal build. It comes with an Ethernet and power supply redundancy for maximum reliability and performance when you need it. Also, the unit offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor that minimizes rack space.

Front Panel Indicators:

  • Primary PSU (A): Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present.
  • Secondary PSU (B): Green LED. Illuminates when an AC input is applied and all DC outputs are present.
  • Primary Network: Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on primary port when in redundant mode. When in Switched mode, a valid network connection at either Primary or Secondary network port will cause this LED to illuminate.
  • Secondary Network: Green LED. Indicates that a network connection is present on secondary port when in redundant mode. Not used in switched mode.
  • Network Locked: Green LED. When unit is network slave, shows valid network lock. When unit is network master, shows lock to indicated clock source. Flashing indicates external clock is selected but not connected.
