Apogee Announces Dante Network Card for Symphony I/O MK II

Apogee said the Symphony I/O MK II Dante option card uses Audinate’s Dante Brooklyn II module which features plug and play media networking for up to 32 bidirectional channels at 96kHz and 16 bidirectional channels up to 192k.   

Apogee customers can now use the high sound quality of Apogee’s Symphony MKII combined with the most powerful networking solution from Audinate featured in many large-scale installations in broadcast, live and post production venues.

The Symphony MK II system can be configured with a number of custom options ranging from 8-32 analog I/O channels. Symphony MK II with Dante allows up to 32 channels with ProTools and redundant Dante connectivity to be fitted into a single two space rack device providing the smallest footprint available with this feature set.

The system features Apogee’s Flagship AD/DA conversion and optional mic preamps I/O flexibility, up to 32 channels of analog inputs and outputs per unit with optional eight mic preamps. It has up to 32 bidirectional channels at 48kHz.

The Symphony MKII Dante option card is available for $1195 and will begin shipping in the first quarter of 2019.
