I guess that depends on what your definition of "not too expensive is". Last time I looked the Yamaha switches were approaching $2,400. The SG300-10 was only about $160.
And I need 4 for redundant network!

I have four SG300-10s in the jazz club that I designed and is about to open in a couple weeks. They probably cost not much more than $600 for all four. No way would I be able to to install four of the Yamaha switches in this club.

I wasn't trying to sound cavalier about money. There's an 8-port version without fiber for ~$1000. Certainly seems to tick a lot of the boxes for what I've seen people asking for on PSW.

VLAN has option to configure with DIP switches so you could do a redundant network with only two of them without having to get into the weeds with switch management.

I have used many variations of the SG350 and SG550, they all work fine for Dante and are all non-blocking switches (full bandwidth on all ports through the backplane). The new SG350 is essentially the old SG500 with the higher bandwidth SFP ports.

If you are looking at the Yamaha switches, I would check out the Luminex stuff. They are expensive, but offer some stupid easy configuration software for VLANs, and have preconfigured options for various production protocols that is nice if you are changing switch configurations often.

Question:
Cisco SG300 or 350 SFP Port, The MGBSX1 on Dante can supports up to 500 m?
Yamaha SWP transmission over distances of up to 300 meters? can More?
Multi Mode or Single on Dante any Different? Any one would be better?
i use Neutrik OpticalCon Duo X-Treme(Multi Mode) can Run Up to 500m?

Thanks

Cisco SG300 or 350 SFP Port, The MGBSX1 on Dante can supports up to 500 m?
- Yes this will do 500m with 850nm multimode fiber. This will be a 1Gb connection which should be more than enough for Dante.

Yamaha SWP transmission over distances of up to 300 meters? can More?
- Max distance per Yamaha is 300m. I wouldn't go any further if that is the max spec.

Multi Mode or Single on Dante any Different? Any one would be better?
- Single Mode will give you significantly more distance as it is laser based. Distance are in the 10-40km range with the correct transceivers.
- Multimode is typically what you will see for shorter distances (under 1500' or 500m).
- Both work fine for Dante, it is all just basic network infrastructure.

i use Neutrik OpticalCon Duo X-Treme(Multi Mode) can Run Up to 500m?
- With the correct transceivers you should be able to go 500m depending on the multimode you are using.

I'm using aftermarket SFPs from FS.com (single mode bi-directional) in my SG300/350 switches. Max distance between units to date is about 12,000ft/roughly 3.5kM. No issues...

Use two Yamaha SWP for FOH & Stage L, The Stage R use Cisco SG300, can?

Looking into getting some new switches. I've understood that the SG300 is/was somewhat of a "reference" Dante switch (Audinate use them as examples).

Is the 350 a safe bet? They are way cheaper than the 300's.
