Focusrite RedNet X2P


The Focusrite RedNet X2P is a compact, portable and robust 2x2 Dante audio interface featuring two Red Evolution mic pres, a stereo line out and a stereo headphone amplifier. RedNet X2P allows you to effortlessly add a high-quality Dante audio interface by integrating power, audio, clock and remote control over a single Ethernet cable, simply use a power over Ethernet switch or PoE injector. A local input mixer allows the 'more me' monitoring control, while a control lockout mode ensures settings cannot be changed when used remotely.


Rear Panel

The rear panel XLR outputs on the Focusrite RedNet X2P offers level-controlled analogue outputs of up to 24dBu, while a front panel ¼” connector provides you with a high-powered headphone output that is capable of driving both high and low impedance headphones. There is also a pair of combination XLR/1/4" inputs that allow the connection of mic, line or instrument level signals to mic pres, which also includes Focusrite’s acclaimed Air mode which emulates the sound of their classic input transformers.


Top Panel

The top panel features an array of controls that includes output level for headphone and line outputs, mic pre controls of gain, high-pass filter, Air, phase invert, phantom power and stereo linking; as well as the crossfader for controlling the balance of mic pre inputs and network receiver channels which to be sent to the headphone or line outputs.


3-Year Warranty

With all Focusrite products, you’ll benefit from a 3-year warranty, and award-winning customer support.
