8-channel remote-controlled mic pre and A/D for Dante networks
RedNet MP8R is an 8-channel remote-controlled microphone preamplifier and A/D for the Dante audio-over-IP network.
Developed from the RedNet 4 studio remote-controlled microphone preamp, and incorporating input from leading live sound practitioners during its development, the MP8R provides a wealth of features that make it particularly applicable to the live sound/recording and broadcast environments, and other workfl ows where reliability is paramount.
PSU and Ethernet redundancy
Dual Ethernet ports with locking etherCON connectors are provided, with several operating modes including daisy-chaining and redundancy confi rmed by front-panel indicators. Two separate power supplies with fault detection capability are included, with separate power input sockets (with retaining clips) on the rear of the unit. The state of each power supply is indicated both remotely and on the front panel. The MP8R features a rugged, roadworthy exterior and high internal build quality. In addition, the unit offers a compact 1U rack-mount form factor.
The MP8R preamps represent the latest iteration of Focusrite’s award-winning mic pre designs, with a pedigree that stretches back to the original Focusrite products of the mid-1980s. Fully keeping pace with the latest developments in audio technology, today’s Focusrite preamps offer lower noise, great dynamic range and better Common Mode Rejection than ever before. The preamps in the MP8R offer an increased maximum input level of 28dBu, plus a 20dB pad, high-pass fi lter, polarity inversion and phantom power. Each preamp has a dual input impedance of 10k or 2.4k ohms, allowing fl exibility when running multiple mic pres in parallel.
