Add AES Connectivity to Your RedNet System

When we're designing RedNet audio systems here at Sweetwater, we like the Focusrite RedNet D16 AES for its impressive connectivity in a single rack space. The RedNet D16 AES gives you 16 channels of AES3 digital I/O, all available from anywhere on your RedNet network. The best part is that each input pair can have its own sample rate, making it easy to incorporate AES signals for many different sources without worrying about sample rate mis-matches. Whether you're designing a recording studio, an educational facility, or any other large audio installation, you owe it to yourself to check out the power of RedNet and the Focusrite RedNet D16 AES.

Focusrite RedNet D16 AES at a Glance:
  • Expand your RedNet network with AES3
  • Asynchronous sample rates throughout
  • Convenient remote control via the RedNet network
Expand your RedNet network with AES3

One of the biggest benefits of a RedNet system is the ability to network many different audio interfaces in different locations via a simple Ethernet cable. The RedNet D16 AES makes it simple to expand your RedNet system further, with up to 16 channels of digital I/O via AES3-equipped mixing consoles and audio interfaces. For example, a school could connect the AES output of a digital mixing console running sound in the theatre to the RedNet D16 AES, and all audio could be accessed for recording in the school's recording studios via the RedNet network.

Asynchronous sample rates throughout

When you're dealing with dozens of channels of networked audio and the ability to easily interface with digital systems, you don't want to worry about sample rate mismatches. Thankfully, the RedNet D16 AES has asynchronous sample rate converters on each input pair. So even if your RedNet system is operating at 96kHz, and you're connecting via AES at 48kHz, you can expect seamless operation without having to adjust sample rates.

Convenient remote control via the RedNet network

Because you'll be using the RedNet D16 AES as a component of a large-scale system, Focusrite makes it easy for you to control and re-route signals via a simple software control panel. No matter where you are in your facility, if you have access to the RedNet network then you have complete control over every RedNet device connected to that network.

Focusrite RedNet D16 AES Features:
  • Expand your RedNet system with 16 AES3 inputs
  • Dual Ethernet connectors for complete reliability and network redundancy
  • Slave either the RedNet systems or AES3 streams to an external word clock
  • Two channels of S/PDIF digital I/O for more flexibility
  • Asynchronous sample rate convertors (ASRC) allow AES3 and RedNet systems to operate simultaneously at different sample rates
Enhance your RedNet system with the Focusrite RedNet D16 AES!

Not just for Pro Audio

I'm using the D16 for home audio use and really enjoy it. I think the sound quality is the best I've experienced in my set up and I don't miss USB at all. Only downside (consumer use) is that I need to adjust sample setting manually. Other than that the RedNet is rock solid (no dropouts) and a great value for the $. For more adventurous audiophiles I would recommend. Also, both RedNet and Sweetwater support is great.
