Sonifex: Microphone Input to Dante
AVN-DIO09 Microphone Input to Dante®
The AVN-DIO09 is a Microphone input to Dante converter in the Sonifex DIO range of Dante input/output devices with A/D circuitry offering a world-class E.I.N. of 129dB. It features a single high quality mic preamp with balanced XLR input, coarse and fine gain controls, high pass filter, phantom power, tri-color level LED and one Neutrik EtherCon® connector for direct connection to a Dante AoIP network.
All Sonifex DIO interfaces provide a simple, convenient, and elegant plug and play method of connecting legacy analogue and digital audio equipment to the Dante AoIP audio network.
All DIO products use Dante Controller for configuration and are powered by PoE (Power over Ethernet). They use rugged aluminium boxes with side slots for screw-mounting and contain superior audio circuitry for optimal audio performance. All feature rugged Neutrik EtherCon® connectors and Neutrik lockable audio connectors for ultra-reliable connectivity.
The AVN-DIO09 has coarse and fine mic gain with the coarse gain set using a toggle switch, providing 20dB/50dB of gain, and the fine gain set using a trimmer adjustment tool, or small flat blade screwdriver, adding between 0dB and 36dB of additional gain. An on/off toggle switch turns the high pass filter on or off and when enabled, it acts on frequencies below 125Hz at a rolloff of 6dB/octave.
Phantom power is enabled/disabled via a toggle switch on the front panel and when enabled, a 48V DC supply is provided to power an appropriate microphone. A red LED illuminates to show when phantom is enabled.
A front panel audio level LED helps to set the gain and shows the audio level being sent to the Dante network.
Note: If using a phantom powered microphone, it may be necessary to earth the unit using the rear panel earth tag to eliminate mains hum, depending on the nature of your PoE supply.
