A 2U 19inch rack mounted Dante monitoring and diagnostic unit, which allows the monitoring of up to 64 Dante channels at 48kHz (32 channels at 96kHz). The signals are presented to the user via the inbuilt 75mm full range speakers which are mounted in optimised ported cabinets for a high quality sound or the via the 6.35mm headphone jack. The speakers are automatically muted when a headphone jack is inserted. Simultaneous outputs are also available in the form of the stereo balanced line outputs and AES output accessed via XLR connectors on the rear of the RD Dante.

The RD Dante is operated and controlled via the large 5.0” diagonal (127mm) 24bit colour LCD and capacitive touch panel.

A simple and elegant menu system has been designed to be intuitive to navigate allowing the user to access all the features of the RD Dante very quickly.

The high resolution screen is easy to read presenting comprehensive metering, routing and status information to the user.

Firmware updates of the PD Dante are achieved via a dedicated USB B connector on the front panel. There is also a dedicated 6.35mm jack socket for the headphone output and a 6.35mm jack socket to input a line level source such as an iPod etc. 

On the rear of the RD Dante there are 2x balanced line outputs on 3 pin male XLRs and AES output also on 3 pin male XLR.These outputs can be configured to follow the main volume settings of the speakers/headphones or alternatively, they can be set to independent levels with individual trim controls for each. They can also be set independently to follow the main Mute control.

Additionally there is an AES input via 3 pin female XLR connector .

The RD Dante has 2x IEC mains inputs (90v to 250v at 50Hz to 60Hz) which can be run individually or together for redundancy
