Focusrite RedNet PCIeR Card
The RedNet PCIeR card is a dedicated Dante audio interface card with network redundancy for Windows or Mac. RedNet PCIeR provides the best possible performance for your system, for situations in which low-latency performance is critical, such as tracking.
RedNet PCIeR combines extremely low latency with Ethernet redundancy, offering the best possible system performance coupled with exceptional reliability. The card requires a standard PCIe slot in a Windows or Mac computer and delivers up to 128 channels I/O with under 3ms latency*. Dual RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connectors switch automatically according to network availability and link the audio computer to the rest of the network
What is RedNet?
RedNet is Focusrites flagship range of modular Ethernet-networked audio interfaces that harnesses the power of Audinates 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.

The title says it all! The RedNet card has been super solid so far with excellent round trip latency times of about 2.6 Ms AD/DA. Customer service and communication was top notch. Don't hesitate if you're in the market for a Dante PCIe card!
I've heard about this card for some time, and had hele off purchasing one until I had a custom quiet computer built for location recording. Installation is pretty easy; configuring the network takes the usual amount of time. Not only is this card rock solid, but its bandwidth is wide enough for 2 Dante streams. For me, this means 32 channels of 24/192 audio. I'm running 24 x 24/192 for my current project; in Pyramix the latency is 3ms! Caveat: get a good switch, preferably with power over Ethernet.
