Focusrite Introduces RedNet A16R 16-Channel Analog I/O

Focusrite tell us their new A16R brings 16-channel analog I/O with redundancy to Focusrite’s RedNet range of Dante audio-over-IP interfaces.  

Los Angeles, CA, February 1, 2016 – Focusrite introduces its RedNet A16R 16-Channel Analog I/O. The latest addition to Focusrite’s popular RedNet range of Dante™-based audio-over-IP interfaces, the A16R is presented in a rugged, 1U all-metal enclosure matching other products in the series. It features 16 channels of network-connected 24-bit, 192kHz A/D-D/A conversion, and offers high-quality, line-level analog audio in and out with full network and power supply redundancy. RedNet A16R carries on the legacy and exceptional sound quality of its predecessor, the RedNet 2 sixteen-channel I/O unit.  

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.
