Focusrite Pro RedNet X2P
Posted on: Tuesday 13th of February 2018
Focusrite Pro tap into the transition underway in broadcast to more widely distributed end-point, IP based signal assignment. RedNet X2P is a compact, portable and robust 2×2 Dante audio interface featuring two Red Evolution mic pres, stereo line out and a stereo headphone amplifier. RedNet X2P provides a high quality, 24-bit, 96kHz sampling rate Dante audio interface integrating power, audio, clock and remote control over a single Ethernet cable – simply use a power over Ethernet switch or PoE injector. A local input mixer allows ‘more me’ monitoring control, while a control lockout mode ensures settings can not be changed when used remotely.
Rear panel XLR outputs offer level-controlled analogue outputs of up to 24dBu, while a front panel 1/4″ connector provides a high-powered headphone output capable of driving both high and low impedance headphones. A pair of combination XLR/1/4″ inputs allow the connection of mic, line or instrument level signals to the mic pres, which include Focusrite’s Air mode which emulates the sound of classic input transformers. The top panel features an array of controls: output level for headphone and line outputs, mic pre controls of gain, high-pass filter, Air, phase invert, phantom power and stereo linking; as well as the crossfader for controlling the balance of mic pre inputs and network receiver channels to be sent to the headphone or line outputs.
