Product description

The DS10 Audio network bridge interfaces between Dante networks and AES3 digital audio signals, while also providing distribution of Ethernet control data. Positioned within the signal chain in front of the amplifiers, this 1 RU device expands the d&b system approach in both mobile and installation environments. Each unit can deliver up to sixteen Dante network channels via AES3 digital signal outputs. The AES3 channel streams from the DS10 carry meta data with Dante channel labels and cabling information to the four channel d&b amplifiers. Additionally, four AES3 input channels provide access to the Dante audio network for applications such as a break-in from a Front of House console.

The DS10 incorporates an integrated 5-port switch, offering a primary and redundant network for the Dante protocol, as well as advanced functions such as Multicast Filtering and VLAN modes. This extensive switch flexibility provides extended connectivity for a laptop to control the d&b amplifiers using the R1 Remote control software via the OCA/AES70 (Open Control Architecture) protocol. Using the DS10 Audio network bridge, audio signals and remote control data can be combined using a single Ethernet cable. The front panel of the DS10 is designed to match the I/O panel of the D80 Touring rack assembly. This ensures a simple integration within existing system configurations. The DS10 features a power supply suitable for mains voltages 100 V – 240 V, 50 – 60 Hz, with Overvoltage protection of up to 400 V.
