Product Highlights

Product Description

The Focusrite RedNet AM2 is a compact Dante-compatible stereo monitoring unit combining headphone and balanced line outputs for monitoring of signals from the Dante network wherever required. RedNet AM2 features a ¼” front-panel TRS headphone socket plus a pair of rear-mounted balanced line outputs with male XLR connectors for loudspeaker monitoring and other applications. RedNet AM2 can be powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via an external DC power supply (included). RedNet AM2 is ideal for adding headphone outputs to a studio-based system as well as offering a solution for education, live sound and broadcast.

High-power headphone amp
Designed to drive a wide range of headphones, this headphone amplifier will drive high impedance (up to 600 ohms) headphones at substantial levels, making the unit suitable for use on-stage as well as front-of-house or in a studio environment. The XLR line-level outputs have software-switchable 0dBFS reference levels of +18 or +24dBu.

Superb-quality D/A conversion
Focusrite RedNet AM2 includes a 2-channel Dante receiver based around Audinate’s ‘Ultimo’ hardware and incorporates high-quality digital to analogue conversion at standard sample rates from 44.1 to 96kHz for stereo network audio monitoring via the line level outputs – for use with loudspeakers for example – or headphones, both outputs offering better than 118dB dynamic range. The unit may be clocked either internally or via the Dante Network Master. Two large volume control knobs are provided for Headphone and Line output levels, the latter featuring a mute button with associated LED.

Other indicators show the presence of power, network, and signal. The signal indicator shows red for 0dBFS, orange at -6dBFS and green at -42dBFS on either channel, while the network indicator illuminates when a valid network connection is present on either Port 1 or 2.

Power over Ethernet or external PSU

The two locking etherCON connectors are connected to an integrated Gigabit network switch, allowing connection to the network and to daisy-chain to additional network devices such as a laptop running Dante Virtual Soundcard. RedNet AM2 is powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via a rear-panel barrel connector and included 12V DC power supply. The power LED indicates green when powered via PoE and red when the external power supply is in use.

Mounting options
The compact unit, mounted in an enclosure based around a sturdy road-worthy aluminium extrusion, is fitted with non-slip feet, and can either sit securely on a flat surface or be mounted on top of a mic stand using the standard 3/8” BSW threaded bush incorporated in the base.

Full Dante interoperability
Like the entire Focusrite RedNet product range, RedNet AM2 interoperates seamlessly and fully with any other Dante audio-over-IP network components and infrastructure. Patching and interconnection can be managed with Dante Controller on Mac or PC.
