Anaheim, CA (January 22, 2016)–Focusrite has introduced its RedNet A16R 16-Channel Analog I/O. Due to ship this summer, it features 16 channels of network-connected 24-bit, 192 kHz A/D-D/A conversion, and provides line-level analog audio in and out with full network and power supply redundancy.
Analog inputs and outputs are accessed via four rear-panel DB25 connectors wired to AES59 specification, while two XLR connectors provide additional AES 3/AES 11 (digital audio/DARS) I/O connectivity. Word Clock I/O connections are made via BNC sockets and permit switchable termination. Dual network connections are provided on locking etherCON connectors and the dual PSU power inputs include cable-retaining clips.
The A16R operates at standard sample rates up to 192 kHz, 24-bit, including pull up/down, with sample rate and operating levels selected remotely via host computer software. The unit offers a dynamic range of 119 dB A-weighted, A/D and D/A, with a frequency response of 20 Hz-20 kHz ±0.15 dB.
Front panel indicators include triple-color LED level indication along with sample rate, clock source, PSU and network status indicators.
