The AVN-DIO16 is a 4 analogue XLR output to Dante converter in the Sonifex DIO range of Dante input/output devices. It features four balanced analogue XLR outputs and one Neutrik etherCON connector for direct connection to a Dante AoIP network.

The front panel provides a global 0dBFS line-up which can be set to +12dBu, +18dBu or +24dBu to meet your specific requirement via the front panel recessed toggle switch. There are also front panel LEDs to indicate network clock status, AoIP link status and PoE power active.

It’s powered using Power over Ethernet (PoE), using a Neutrik etherCON connector. The AVN-DIO16 uses the latest Audinate Dante chipset so is AES67 and Dante Domain Manager compliant.
