Stuggling to find a way to sneak your DJ mixer into a DANTE network?
Or a laptop, instrument, tablet.... DiNET DAN-TX is your new best friend.
It works for single or dual-channel line-level inputs, and can simply squirt your signal into the Dante network without need for an extra mixer or interface.
In typical Radial fashion, not only is the casing bulletproof, the inside is full of everything you'll need:
DiNET-DAN-TX is equipped with ¼", RCA and 3.5mm inputs. When connecting a single-channel instrument such as a bass or acoustic guitar, an Instrument switch converts one of the ¼" jacks to a "Thru". The ¼" inputs will accept both balanced (TRS) for professional equipment, and unbalanced (TS) connectors for instruments or consumer gear.
Levels can be controlled locally via an input trim pot that offers +/-10dB of control, with an additional -18dB pad that can be utilised if required. There is also a high pass filter, switchable on the side of DAN-TX.
24bit/96kHz A/D converters for exceptional audio quality. Connecting to the Dante network is easy – simply connect its Ethernet jack to any networked audio system using standard Cat5e or Cat6 cable. The DAN-TX will accept Power over Ethernet (PoE), but a power adapter is included for use when PoE is not available.
DI NET DAN-TX features:
- The first Dante™ enabled direct box
- ¼", RCA and 3.5mm input jacks
- Connect instruments or line level sources
- 24bit/96kHz analog to digital conversion
DiNET™ DAN-TX™ FAQ (via Radial website)
Does the DAN-TX have any analog outputs? Can it be used as a standard DI box?
No. The DAN-TX is only equipped with a Dante enabled Ethernet output. An Instrument switch converts one of the inputs to a Thru for connection to a stage amplifier, but there are no balanced audio ouptuts.
Will the DAN-TX work with Power over Ethernet (PoE), or do I need to connect an external power supply?
The DAN-TX will operate with Power over Ethernet. An external power adapter is included for use with networks that do not provide PoE.
Do I need to configure anything on the DAN-TX when connecting to a network?
No, the DAN-TX is plug-and-play. As soon as it is connected to the Dante network it will appear as a 2-channel input device.
Do I need to use special Ethernet switches to connect my Dante network?
No, Dante will work with any switch. Please refer to the Audinate® Dante™ website for more information.
