Focusrite RedNet PCIeR Card
The Focusrite RedNet PCIeR Card is a dedicated 128x128 Dante audio interface for Mac and Windows PCs. Featuring a primary and secondary Ethernet port, RedNet PCIeR delivers high channel counts at very low latency with the utmost reliability.
The Focusrite RedNet PCIeR Card operates with ASIO or Core Audio applications. It combines extremely low latency with network redundancy, offering the best possible system performance coupled with exceptional reliability. The Focusrite RedNet Card requires a standard 4x PCIe slot in a Windows or Mac computer and delivers up to 128 channels I/O with very low latency. Dual RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet connectors switch automatically according to network availability and link the audio computer to the rest of the Dante audio-over-IP 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.
