Tascam Adds Dante Networking To Audio Interfaces

Tascam has added two new models to its popular line of audio interfaces that help streamline audio production. The products include new Line-Level-to-Dante and Dante-to-Line-Level interfaces.

Taking advantage of the Dante audio networking protocol and compatible devices, Tascam’s ML-32D and ML-16D interfaces allow audio engineers and systems integrators to quickly and easily connect 32 or 16 channels of audio between the analog domain and Dante-enabled digital components. These components include the Tascam DA-6400, SS-R250N, and SS-CDR250 multichannel audio recorders.

The ML-32D and ML-16D deliver pure Dante connectivity, without unnecessary features like mid-level microphone preamps, MADI and S/PDIF interfaces, and other little-used functions that add cost and complexity. Supporting Digital Audio at up to 24bit/96kHz, both units feature analog line level I/O via D-Sub connectors (8 on ML-32D and 4 on ML-16D) and feature front panel LED meters to display both signal level and overload for each active channel.

The Tascam ML-32D and ML-16D will carry an MSRP of $2,299.99 and $1,599.99 respectively and are scheduled to begin shipping in early 2018.
