AudioPressBoxAPB-D200 R-D

Active 19” rack AudioPressBox distribution Drive Unit, Dante Interface - 2 channels, 2 LINE Inputs, 4 buffered Outputs for 12 AudioPressBox expanders

APB-D200 R-D features Analogue and DANTE inputs with high-quality digital-to analogue converters, supporting a range of sample rates and bit depths. It can provide a hardware master clock for a Dante network. As with other Dante products, the freely available Dante Controller software application is used to automatically discover and configure APB-Dante devices connected to the Dante network. Device names, channel labels, signal routing and other parameters (for example, sample rate and latency) can be configured via the network using Dante Controller. A variety of network and clock synchronisation diagnostic tools are also available in Dante Controller.

APB-Dante products use Power over Ethernet (PoE). Power can be provided through the Ethernet cable from a PoE-capable network switch, or from a separate PoE injector.

PoE Power Consumption: < 2 Watt 

 CAUTIONIf using a PoE injector, it must be IEEE 802.3af compliant. Use of a non-compliant PoE injector can terminally damage the device and may void the warranty.

Available Software Options:

Dante Controller

Dante Via

Dante Virtual Soundcard

COMP COMP (Compressor/Limiter operation button) To provide perfect output signal without clipping or distortion, you can switch the Comp button ON. If you switch this OFF, signal in output could contain signal clipping or distortion.
HPF HPF (High Pass Filter) This button helps to avoid distributing low-end rumble like a microphone handling noise or pops. You have 2 options – full range or 160Hz low-cut frequency. The one you choose depends on the sound, you want to filter out.
