DN4

Dante | AES67 Microphone Interface for the Dante

The DN4 microphone interface is a key part of the Audix Dante | AES67 Integrated Microphone System, the fast, trouble-free way to stream Audix audio performance through Ethernet networks. High-quality audio and all microphone functions – including on-off contact closure and LED status indicators – are available through a single CAT5 – CAT7 cable with RJ45 connections at both interface and microphone. This simple configuration eliminates wiring errors, accelerates installation, and reduces cost.

The DN4 features four inputs for Audix RJ45-equipped, single-element microphones and two 5V logic outputs per port, with source/sink capability for LEDs that are controlled by network-connected DSPs and one logic input per port for buttons. Low-pass and high-pass filter settings are available on each audio channel, as are eight selectable gain levels, with all settings configurable via software.

Designed, assembled, and tested by Audix in the USA.
