Had a client call wondering if there would be enough output to drive Meyer M-1A's
What y'all think ?

The data sheet does state "Configurable gain / attenuation (analog input and output models only)" with the analogue out version having "Max signal level (Balanced)" of "+18dBu / +4dBu / 0dBu 0dBV / -10dBV".

Looks like Audinate took a cue from Amphenol.

Still takes an estimated $500 to get a stereo pair from one end of the cat5 cable to the other. Also with the usb ones you will have the same problems regarding latency and buffer settings as with other usb soundcards, so it won't be exactly plug and play, even if class compliant.

I find the AES3 dongle the most interesting. 2 ch up and 2 ch down, if the price is right, it would make a cheap X32/M32 to dante bridge, with the possibility for an x-live recording card ;)

I am also kind of curious how clocking is done.

My two AES3 adaptors arrived on Friday.  Using them to "Dante-fy" a Klark Teknik DN9848E, and the only other thing on the network was a PC (network is 3 things).  I engaged SRC on the KT inputs.

My implementation may be too simple for your question.  For network clock Dante Controller chose one of the Avios as master clock, it called the other items slaves and that was it.  If you used Avio at the start of a multi piece AES system then not sure how that would work.  If your first item didn't have SRC then I imagine whatever its sample rate is would drive the dante network (?).  It would also need to be the AES system clock.

On the input side I believe the Avio does SRC to convert whatever is coming in to the dante network clock.  Haven't tried that side yet, I don't have anything with AES out.

Hope that helps

Casey

For those that have these devices, what is the latency? Is it settable?


Never mind. Audinate answered the question. It's settable at 1/2/5ms for all devices.


That makes the USB version better than DVS which can only go down to 4 (or is it 10?) ms...

Minimum setting is 4ms.  I haven't measured it to verify if that is ideal or actual, depending on the rest of the network.

Hm! Audinate said 1/2/5ms. What's the deal?

I've got one of the USB AVIOs. I'll check it out this weekend if I can get done with this install project that is kicking my ass this week and post back. Maybe there's a firmware update or something.

Sorry, to clarify, I was referring to DVS and you're right that it is the higher 4/6/10ms.  The AVIO's are 1/2/5, like stated.  I'd be curious to measure all of them, especially the AES with any SRC going on, which usually adds a decent amount of latency.
