Focusrite RedNet A8R


Overview

The Focusrite RedNet A8R is a 1U, 8x8 analogue line-level I/O interface for any Dante audio-over-IP network. The RedNet A8R is the ideal choice for providing analogue I/O in critical path applications such as post-production, broadcast, live sound or recording studio environments as it features network and power supply redundancy.

 

High-quality conversion with up to 119dB of dynamic range is provided through two rear-panel DB25 connectors while an additional pair of AES3 I/O is provided through male and female XLR for added flexibility. World Clock I/O on the BNC connectors allows external devices to clock to RedNet A8R or alternatively allows RedNet A8R to act as a network clock grandmaster slaved to external input. Power to the RedNet A8R is supplied through a pair of locking IEC power inlets while network connections are provided with a pair of locking Neutrik etherCON connectors, providing redundant operation or daisy-chained operation.
