Digital Performance

Supported sample rates

44.1 / 48 / 88.2 / 96 / 176.4 / 192 kHz (-4% / -0.1% / +0.1% / +4.167%) at 24 bit

Clock sources

Internal or from network master device

Local clock sources

Internal, DARS, Word Clock, Input 1–2, Input 9–10

External word clock range

Nominal sample rate ±7.5%

Front Panel Indicators

Power Indicator

Green LED

Primary network

Green LED, indicates that a network connection is present on primary port when in redundant mode. When in switched mode, a valid network connection at either Primary or Secondary network port will cause this LED to illuminate

Secondary network

As Primary network indicator. Not used in switched mode.

Locked

Green LED. When unit is network slave, shows valid network lock, when network master shows unit is locked to indicated clock source. Flashing means invalid external clock present and unit has reverted to internal clock

Unit sample rate

Green LED for each: 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, x2, x4

Pull/up down

Indicates unit is set to operate on a Dante pull up/down domain

Signal indicators

16 Green LEDs, 8 input/8 output indicators. Illuminate at -126 dBFS

Clock source indicators

Orange LED for each: Internal, Word Clock, DARS, Input 1–2, Input 9–10

Network Modes

Redundant

Allows unit to connect to two independent networks

Switched

Connects both ports to integrated network switch allowing daisy-chaining of devices

Power

PSU

Internal, 100-240V, consumption 30 VA

*XLR connectors are wired: Pin 1=Shield, Pin 2=Hot, Pin 3=Cold
