imgRio Rancho, NM (March 25, 2013)—Lectrosonics’ new DNT BOB Dante Breakout Box, designed to work with the company’s ASPEN Dante network processor or other Dante hardware, transmits and receives line level analog audio signals via a Dante network. The box creates a bidirectional digital snake for stage productions, sending audio to a remote recording location or delivering audio to remote amplifiers or speakers.

The DNT BOB 88 Dante Breakout Box converts analog inputs to digital and transmits them through the network, and can also transmit channels on the network to other sources. The unit operates as a native Dante device with automatic device discovery and clock configuration using standard Ethernet hardware. It features eight balanced line level analog inputs, eight balanced line level analog outputs, Dante primary and secondary ports, eight Dante network outputs and eight Dante network inputs.

Any Dante device on the same network can subscribe to the transmit channels and process or route the audio as required with the DNT BOB 88. In a similar manner, each receive channel can subscribe to any transmit channel on the network and the received audio will be delivered to the analog output of the same number. Receive channel 1 appears at analog output 1, receive channel 2 to output 2, and so on.
