Your Dante Monitoring Solution

If you're a RedNet user, Sweetwater has an invaluable addition for your audio-over-IP system. A compact Dante-compatible stereo monitoring box, the Focusrite RedNet AM2 provides headphone and line-outs for flexible monitoring of signals from your Dante network. The AM2 gives you a convenient front-panel 1/4" TRS headphone jack that delivers healthy level to both high- and low-impedance 'phones, while a pair of balanced rear-panel male XLR line-outputs accommodate monitoring on speakers and other uses. The AM2 sports a rugged, extruded-aluminum casing with no-slip feet. The base is also threaded to accept a standard mic stand.

Built for critical monitoring - and convenience

Incorporating Focusrite's latest 2-channel Dante receiver, the RedNet AM2 delivers state-of-the-art D/A conversion (sample rates up to 96kHz, with greater than 118dB dynamic range) for critical monitoring on headphones or speakers. The unit is fitted with large volume knobs for headphone and line-output levels; the line-outs also sport a handy mute button with indicator LED. Power, signal level, and network indicators are also onboard to keep you status savvy. To connect to your network or daisy-chain to other network devices, the AM2 provides dual locking Ethercon connectors. The Focusrite RedNet AM2 can be network powered via PoE (Power over Ethernet) or by the rear-panel barrel connector and included DC power supply.

Focusrite RedNet AM2 Features:
  • High-quality stereo Dante monitoring solution for headphones and speakers
  • Superior D/A conversion for accurate, transparent-sounding audio
  • Headphone amp delivers healthy level to both high- and low-impedance 'phones
  • Separate headphone and line-output level controls
  • Line-output mute switch kills signal to your power amps or powered speakers
  • Gigabit Ethernet switch simplifies cable connection to a second device

Working flawlessly so far. I am planning to get a few more of these!

Tons of gain.

Love it. Bought two of these for our church after purchasing our Rednet 6 and Madi option card for our D-Show. System is running great. These things have tons of headroom and the latency after processing everything through Protools with tons of plugins is only 10msec. Hard to believe. I'm a fan. NOTE: Update to the newest version of RedNet Control or it won't recognize the AM2's.

Focusrite REDNET AM2 great but whens the multifunctional piece coming?

So I will start with what I love, I love not waiting any longer for the final release of these. Wow, companies love releasing news so early. I own a red net 1 and FOUR red net 4s and love them minus the fact that there was no headphone solution, talkback, or any dante based control. So this unit frees up my other analog outs for headphone distribution and I have been using it as my control room DAC, volume control, and headphone amp. So far compared to the REDNET 1 output I haven't noticed any significant quality drop off in monitoring from the mains, but haven't had the unit long enough to compare that. But the output is clean and ability to have very short runs into the sub and ultimately into my big Bryston power amp has seemingly helped lower noise floor. I love not having to turn on the REDNET 1 to mix and monitor and like having an integrated HP output. The HP channel sounds very nice and the output even on my 600ohm HPs is very good. Ear shattering levels not achievable, but I think loud enough for most. Build quality is very nice, box seems well built and the rear panel is well built with XLR outs and solid Cat 6 etc.. The knobs feel smooth and solid. I wish a little more resistance but nice. So overall, love having the new features in the setup with the AM2, been waiting for something like it. ******However, why not two headphones, two stereo monitor outs? I would pay 800 for that without having to buy a second unit to do this and having two small but now redundant pieces on the desk. Even better, why not rule the world with a full REDNET Dante control surface? 16-18 faders, two HP, monitor switching and talk balk. 2500$? take my money!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE
