Tascam ML-16D 16-Channel Analogue-Dante-Analogue Converter
ML-16D is a compact, high-quality analogue-Dante-analogue converters designed to transfer 16 or 32 analogue audio channels over a Dante network in both directions. Space-saving 25-pin D-sub connectors are provided for use with optional breakout boxes to input and output balanced, line-level analogue audio signals. Two Ethernet connectors (Dante Primary/Secondary) are available for redundant operation using two separate networks.
The units feature indicators for operation status and current sample rate as well as overload LEDs for each input and signal LEDs for each input and output. Switches on the rear side allow the user to set the required maximum input/output level. Any other settings, such as sampling frequency, channel routing or latency, can be made by the freely available “Dante Controller” computer application.
Dante is a network technology by Audinate offering high-performance audio distribution over standard IP networks. It supports hundreds of simultaneous channels of uncompressed audio with ultra-low latency and accurate synchronization.
