The world’s leading professional audio manufacturers have adopted Dante, making it the standard for digital audio networking for recording, live, broadcast and commercial installations.

Dante audio networking utilizes standard IP networks to transmit high-quality, uncompressed audio with near-zero latency. It is the most economical, versatile, and easy-to-use audio networking solution and is scalable from simple installations to large-capacity networks running thousands of audio channels. The Hilo and Aurora are an obvious choice among integrators as their uncolored audio conversion provides the uncompressed high quality audio that Dante transmits over the network.

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.
