Radial’s Dante-enabled DI boxes now shipping

Radial Engineering has announced that the DiNET DAN-TX and DAN-RX stereo Dante audio converters are now available.

The DAN-TX and DAN-RX are designed to provide a simple and robust solution for sending or receiving two channels of analogue audio over a digital Dante-enabled network.

The DAN-TX includes ¼", RCA and 3.5mm inputs, with a single Ethernet output that allows the user to connect any analogue device to a Dante network. The range of connector options enables interfacing with professional audio sources such as mixers or recording interfaces, along with CD/DVD players, smartphones, tablets and instruments.

When used with mono instruments such as guitars, 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 for outputting balanced analogue 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 offer 14-gauge steel construction and employ 24bit/96kHz converters. 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.

US street price for both the DAN-RX and DAN-TX is $399.99 USD.
