Focusrite RedNet AM2 Network Interface

The Focusrite Rednet AM2 Network Interface is a stereo Dante headphone amplifier and line output interface solution powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via the rear-panel barrel connector and included DC power supply.

A valuable addition to Focusrite’s RedNet range of audio-over-IP interfaces, RedNet AM2 is a compact, flexible Dante-compatible stereo monitoring unit combining headphone and 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.

Designed to drive high or low impedance headphones at high levels, the headphone output delivers significant audio output power. 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 threaded bush incorporated in the base.

RedNet AM2 includes the latest two-channel Dante receiver and provides high-quality digital to analogue conversion at up to 96kHz for accurate monitoring on loudspeakers or headphones. 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 level.

Dual locking etherCON connectors are included to connect the network and to daisy-chain to additional network devices. The unit is powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via the rear-panel barrel connector and included DC power supply.

What is RedNet?
RedNet is Focusrite’s flagship range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinate’s tried and tested Dante digital audio networking system to bring studio quality sound to any modern audio application. Fundamentally RedNet is an extremely scalable, near zero latency audio distribution system that can be used to expand I/O channel count, interface digital components, and/or bridge between Pro Tools|HD or MADI and the Dante audio network.

Focusrite RedNet AM2 Network Interface Features

  • Cost-effective headphone/loudspeaker stereo monitoring solution for Dante offers lower system deployment costs
  • Superb digital to analogue conversion at up to 96kHz provides transparent and accurate audio quality
  • Powerful headphone amp delivers plenty of level even with high-Z headphones for maximum high-quality audibility
  • Independent headphone/line output level controls for maximum control
  • Line output mute switch instantly kills the signal to external speakers or power amps
  • Integrated Gigabit Ethernet switch allows connection of a second device for simpler cabling
  • Built-in mic stand mount plus non-slip feet – mount RedNet AM2 to a mic stand or place securely on a surface
  • Supported Sample Rates: 44.1, 48, 88.2 and 96kHz at 24 bit
  • Sonic Excellence – Advanced A-D/D-A conversion, premium multi-layered board circuitry and rock steady JetPLL™clocking delivers extremely clean, transparent audio at a dynamic range of 119dB with 24-bit resolution at sample rates up to 192kHz.
  • Dante Audio Networking – Harnessing the power of Dante’s tried and tested digital audio networking system, RedNet forms an extremely scalable, modular audio distribution system that is compatible with any other Dante enabled products.
  • Highly Expandable – RedNet’s modular “building block” design means that each system can be specified with any combination of RedNet units to ensure your system has the right type and quantity of I/O exactly where you need them.
  • Extensive Compatibility – With many different options for interfacing with other hardware, whether it's MADI, AES 3, analogue, Mac, PC, Pro Tools|HD, or Dante-based products - RedNet will function with a huge range of devices and features multiple connectivity options.
