RedNet A16R offers conversion at standard rates – 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.45 and 192kHz at 24-bit resolution, with pull-up/down capability. Electronically-balanced analogue audio is input and output on DB-25 connectors wired to AES59 specifications, and internal signals are balanced throughout. Inputs and outputs may be configured for either +18dBu or +24dBu alignment.
In addition, two channels of AES/EBU I/O with sample rate conversion are provided on XLR3 connectors. The clock source for the unit may be internal, or external via Word Clock or DARS (the latter via the AES XLR input). RedNet A16R also outputs Word Clock.
Sample rate and operating levels are selected remotely from software on a Mac or Windows PC. Comprehensive front-panel LEDs include PSU and network status, sample rate and per-channel tri-colour (red-amber-green) signal level indication. Green ‘signal present’ indicators are provided for the AES/EBU I/O, and three Clock Source indicators show Internal, Word Clock and DARS.
RedNet A16R features power and network redundancy, with two separate universal (100–240V) PSUs including IEC connectors with retaining clips, plus dual network interfaces on locking etherCON connectors, which can be set remotely to Redundant or Switched (daisy-chain) mode.
