Description

The Focusrite RedNet AM2 is a compact stereo headphone amp and line out device providing additional functionality to Focusrite’s flagship range of Dante-based audio-over-IP interfaces. RedNet AM2, housed in a compact metal case with microphone stand mount, includes independent level controls for line (XLR) and headphone (1/4” TRS) outputs, and features superb monitor-quality conversion. RedNet AM2 can be powered over Ethernet (PoE) or via an external power supply (included) plugged into the rear.

High power headphone amp

Designed to drive a wide range of headphones, the headphone amplifier will drive high impedance (up to 600 ohms) headphones at substantial levels, making the unit suitable for use on-stage as well as front-of-house or in a studio environment. The XLR line-level outputs have software-switchable 0dBFS reference levels of +18 or +24dBu.

Superb-quality D/A conversion

RedNet AM2 includes a 2-channel Dante receiver based around Audinates Ultimo hardware and incorporates high-quality digital to analog conversion at standard sample rates from 44.1 to 96kHz for stereo network audio monitoring via the line level outputs – for use with loudspeakers for example – or headphones, both outputs offering better than 118dB dynamic range). The unit may be clocked either internally or via the Dante Network Master. Two large volume control knobs are provided for Headphone and Line output levels, the latter featuring a mute button with associated LED.

Other indicators show the presence of power, network and signal. The signal indicator shows red for 0dBFS, orange at -6dBFS and green at -42dBFS on either channel, while the network indicator illuminates when a valid network connection is present on either Port 1 or 2.

Power over Ethernet or external PSU

The two locking etherCON connectors are connected to an integrated Gigabit network switch, allowing connection to the network and to and to daisy-chain to additional network devices such as a laptop running Dante Virtual Soundcard. RedNet AM2 is powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or via a rear-panel barrel connector and included 12V DC power supply. The power LED indicates green when powered via PoE and red when the external power supply is in use.

Mounting options

The compact unit, mounted in an enclosure based around a sturdy road-worthy aluminum extrusion, is fitted with non-slip feet, and can either sit securely on a flat surface or be mounted on top of a mic stand using the standard 3/8” BSW threaded bush incorporated in the base.  

Full Dante interoperability

Like the entire RedNet product range, RedNet AM2 inter-operates seamlessly and fully with any other Dante audio-over-IP network components and infrastructure. Patching and interconnection can be managed with Dante Controller on Mac or PC.
