Radial Engineering Launches DiNET DAN-TX2 and DAN-RX2 2-Channel Dante Network Interfaces

March 29 2019, 00:20
Radial Engineering announced that its DiNET DAN-TX2 and DAN-RX2, 2-channel Dante-enabled network transmitter and receiver boxes, are now shipping. The new second-generation Dante interfaces are designed for use with any Dante or AES67-compliant network, utilizing low-latency audio-over-Ethernet protocol while featuring 24-bit/96kHz digital converters for exceptional audio quality. 

Radial designed the new interfaces with commercial installation and professional touring applications in mind, as they feature locking EtherCON jacks to ensure secure and protected connection to the network, and they can be mounted in standard equipment racks with the optional SA series rack adaptor kit. Power for the DAN-TX2 and the DAN-RX2 can be supplied using Power over Ethernet (PoE) or a 15V adaptor (included), and both power sources can be used simultaneously for redundancy.

The DAN-TX2 transmitter box is able to feed any line-level audio signal to a Dante network, using a number of connector types to suit multiple applications and source devices. Two input channels can be accessed via XLR/TRS combo jacks for balanced pro audio equipment, RCA's for consumer playback devices, and a 3.5mm stereo jack for use with smartphones and tablets. Individual level controls and input pads are provided for each channel, or they can be linked to a single set of controls for easy operation with stereo sources.
The DAN-RX2 is a receiver that can be connected anywhere on the network and provide balanced analog audio outputs over XLR connectors, for reliable distribution to PA systems, powered speakers, or any other destination as needed. A separate headphone output section is also provided, with 3.5mm and 1/4" TRS outputs to use the DAN-RX2 as a personal monitoring system or for testing purposes.
