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 grand master 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.
