Focusrite introduces its RedNet A16R 16-Channel Analog I/O at The NAMM Show 2016. The latest addition to Focusrite’s RedNet range of Dante-based audio-over-IP interfaces, the A16R is presented in a rugged, single-rackspace all-metal enclosure matching other products in the series.

It features 16 channels of network-connected 24-bit/192kHz A/D/A conversion, and offers high-quality, line-level analog audio in and out with full network and power supply redundancy. RedNet A16R carries on the legacy and exceptional sound quality of its predecessor, the RedNet 2 16-channel I/O unit.

Analog inputs and outputs are accessible via four rear panel DB-25 connectors wired to AES59 specification, while two XLR connectors provide additional AES 3/AES 11 (digital audio/DARS) I/O connectivity. Word clock I/O connections are made via BNC sockets and permit switchable termination. Dual network connections are provided on locking etherCON connectors and the dual PSU power inputs include cable-retaining clips.

The A16R operates at standard sample rates up to 192kHz, 24-bit, including pull up/down, with sample rate and operating levels selected remotely via host computer software. The unit offers a dynamic range of 119dB A-weighted, A/D and D/A, with a frequency response of 20Hz-20kHz ±0.15dB.

Front panel indicators include triple-color LED level indication along with sample rate, clock source, PSU and network status indicators.

Focusrite states that it will begin shipping the A16R in summer 2016.
