Developed by Audinate, Dante is a low-latency audio-over-Ethernet protocol utilised in professional and commercial applications. The DAN-TX and DAN-RX provide a simple and robust solution for sending or receiving two channels of analog audio over a digital Dante-enabled network. The DAN-TX includes ¼”, RCA, and 3.5mm inputs, with a single Ethernet output that allows you to connect any analog device to your Dante network. This range of connector options makes it easy to interface with a CD/DVD player, smartphone, tablet, instrument, or professional audio source such as a mixer or recording interface. When used with mono instruments such as guitar, the DAN-TX provides a thru connection for a stage amp, and includes a trim control that provides +/-10dB of gain. Balanced signal levels up to +24dB can be accepted without distortion, and a high pass filter and -20dB pad can be engaged when required.

The DAN-RX is a two channel Dante receiver that allows you to output balanced analog audio at any point on a Dante network. Dual XLR outputs provide connection to a mixing console, amplifier or powered speakers to route audio from FOH to the stage, or to remote rooms within a venue with separate PA systems. A 3.5mm headphone output with level control is also provided to test audio or monitor locally. The DAN-RX connects to the network via a single Ethernet cable, and ground lift is provided on the outputs to reduce buzz and hum from ground loops.

Both the DAN-RX and DAN-TX are built with rugged 14-gauge steel construction and employ high quality 24bit / 96kHz converters for exceptional audio performance. Power for each device can be supplied with a 15V adaptor (included) or via Power over Ethernet (PoE), and both power sources can be used simultaneously for redundancy.

The RRP of both the DAN-RX and the DAN-TX is $399
