Shipping in Summer 2016, Focusrite has announced its RedNet A16R 16-channel analog I/O, the latest addition to the company’s RedNet series of Dante AoIP (audio over IP) interfaces.
Built in a 1U all-metal enclosure, the A16R offers 16 channels of network-connected 24-bit, 192 kHz-capable A/D-D/A conversion with line-level analog audio in and out plus full network and power supply redundancy.
Analog I/O is via four rear-panel DB25 connectors wired to AES59 specs; two XLRs provide additional AES 3/AES 11 (digital audio/DARS) I/O. Additionally, BNC sockets provide word clock I/O and allow switchable termination while locking Neutrik etherCON connectors provide dual network connections. The unit offers a dynamic range of 119dB A-weighted, A/D and D/A, with a frequency response of 20Hz-20kHz ±0.15dB.
