The Focusrite RedNet D16R is a 16x16 AES3 interface featuring network and power supply redundancy compatible with any Dante audio-over-IP network.

Whether it’s post-production, broadcast, live sound or for the recording studio, if you need to add 16 bi-directional channels of high-resolution digital audio to your Dante audio network, the Focusrite RedNet D16R is an ideal choice for providing AES3 I/O in critical-path applications in any Dante network. Perfect for bridging between digital consoles, power amplifiers, digital effects processors, or any other AES3-equipped audio equipment, RedNet D16R has SRC (Sample Rate Conversion) on each input pair allowing plug-and-play operation with any AES3 source.

Focusrite RedNet D16R—Just the Facts:

  • 16x16 AES3 I/O for Dante audio-over-IP networks
  • Up to 24-bit, 192kHz sampling rates with sample rate conversion
  • AES67 compliant
  • Dual power supplies and network connections with full power and network redundancy including locking connectors for maximum reliability
  • Flexible input options: DB25, XLR, RCA
  • Word Clock I/O and DARS input for increased flexibility
  • Combined digital I/O to AES59 standard on DB25 connectors
  • Comprehensive front-panel metering and indicators
  • Remote monitoring software with powerful graphic user interface
  • 2-year warranty

Focusrite RedNet D16R—Under the Hood

Two rear-panel DB25 connectors wired to the AES59 standard provide eight pairs of AES3 I/O, while an additional pair of XLR connectors allows flexibility in cabling choice for one pair of I/O. Additional RCA connectors allow the connection of consumer S/PDIF equipment. All external audio inputs include sample rate conversion, further reducing cabling and clocking complexity. Word Clock I/O on BNC connectors allows external devices to clock to RedNet D16R, or alternatively allows RedNet D16R to act as a network clock grand master slaved to external input. Power is supplied through a pair of locking IEC power inlets, and network connections are provided with a pair of locking Neutrik etherCON connectors; providing redundant operation or daisy-chained operation.

Sonic excellence

Advanced A-D and D-A conversion, premium multi-layered board circuitry and rock steady JetPLL clocking delivers extremely clean, transparent audio with extensive dynamic range and 24-bit/192kHz sampling.

Dante audio networking

The power and flexibility of Dante is harnessed to build an extremely scalable, modular audio system that is compatible with any other Dante-enabled device.


Some devices feature dual power supplies and dual network connections allowing for silent fail-over in the event of power or network outage, providing peace of mind.

Extensive compatibility

A wide range of connectivity options are available, including analogue, MADI, AES3, Mac, Windows, Pro Tools | HD and of course other Dante products.
