Cranborne Audio N22 Standalone Cat 5 Snake/C.A.S.T. Breakout Box

Flexible, high fidelity and cost-effective analog audio distribution system with advanced connectivity options for other C.A.S.T. enabled products

MFR# CSTN2001

Product Description

The Cranborne Audio N22 is Cranborne’s solution for flexible, high fidelity, and cost-effective audio distribution. Put simply, N22 replaces 4 balanced XLR cables with one shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 7 cable to transport 4 channels of analogue audio over distances of up to 100 meters (330 ft).

Simpler Cable Management

Connect two N22’s together using a single shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 7 cable and you can pass 4 channels of balanced, analogue audio (including 48V phantom power) between two distant locations. Use N22 in the studio to connect the live room to the I/O of your audio interface, in a live rig to connect your mixing console to your power amps, or even at home to connect your surround speakers to your home cinema system.

Less Cable Clutter

Using a shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 7 cable instead of 4 XLRs allows you to not only reduce cable spaghetti in your studio but also distribute audio around studios or stages using affordable network cabling whilst achieving the highest sonic results due to shielded Cat 5e, Cat 6, and Cat 7 cable’s low-crosstalk design. Perhaps best of all, N22 is completely passive and requires no external power in order to transport audio at the highest quality level over the longest distances.

Each C.A.S.T. connection on a Cranborne Audio product features unique optimisation to ensure that the maximum signal integrity is transmitted over shielded Cat 5 cables for distances of up to 100m without high-end roll-off and with low-crosstalk.

Advanced Connectivity With 500R8 and 500ADAT Interfaces

If your studio is already built around a Cranborne Audio interface such as a 500R8 or 500ADAT, you can connect multiple N22’s into their C.A.S.T. Input connectors and then receive balanced input sources plugged into N22’s combi inputs directly at the audio interface's inputs ready for processing and recording. That same cat 5 C.A.S.T. connection also transmits a stereo monitor mix generated by the 500R8/500ADAT back down the C.A.S.T. connection and directly into N22’s balanced XLR and 1/4” Jack outputs for monitoring or reamping.

A Palm-Sized Connectivity Powerhouse

N22 represents Cranborne Audio’s most cost-effective C.A.S.T. breakout box and it is the perfect compliment for those looking to build their studio around a Cranborne Audio product but with its capability to be used standalone, it is also an ingenious little tool for those looking to reduce cable clutter in their setups whilst increasing signal integrity, flexibility, and deployment convenience.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
