Tascam has unveiled two innovative new additions to its line of Dante-enabled offerings. Designed to provide powerful and flexible connectivity between analogue and digital components, the Tascam ML-32D and ML-16D are multichannel line level to Dante and Dante to line level interfaces.
With Dante-enabled devices becoming increasingly ubiquitous in professional AV systems, Tascam’s ML-32D and ML-16D empower audio engineers and systems integrators to quickly and easily connect 32 or 16 channels of audio between the analogue domain and Dante-enabled digital components, including the Tascam DA-6400, SS-R250N, and SS-CDR250 multichannel audio recorders.
The ML-32D and ML-16D deliver pure Dante connectivity, without unnecessary features like mid-level microphone preamps, MADI and S/PDIF interfaces, and other little-used functions that add cost and complexity. Supporting digital audio at up to 24bit/96kHz, both units feature analogue line level I/O via D-Sub connectors (eight on ML-32D and four on ML-16D) and feature front panel LED meters to display both signal level and overload for each active channel.
The Tascam ML-32D and ML-16D will carry an MSRP of $2,300 and $1600 respectively and are scheduled to begin shipping in early 2018.
