Dante™ audio networking offers the convenience of a single CAT5 Ethernet connection to carry the audio signal from the eight channels of the A10-RACK. Dante is always active, whether the receiver is set for analogue or AES digital output. When used with other Dante-compatible devices, complex systems with comprehensive routing can be built. Monitoring and routing of signals from transmitters to receivers is simplified with Dante Controller, a free software application from Audinate.
RF Distribution – The A10-RACK has an integrated RF distribution amplifier. Its two RF inputs offer selectable 12 V powering for active antennas, plus loop-thru connections for another A10-RACK. A single pair of antennas can be used for up to 16 audio channels.
Powering – The A10-RACK is powered from standard 4-pin XLR, 10-18 VDC power supplies, such as Sound Devices XL-WP4 (shown right). Power supplies require 3 amps (minimum) for proper powering of the A10-RACK and connected slot receivers.
