AVN-AH8 8 Stereo Analogue Headphone Outputs Dante Interface
AVN-AH8 8 Stereo Analogue Headphone Outputs Dante Interface, PoE
The AVN-AH8 multi-channel headphone amplifier is a 1U rack-mount which distributes 2 sets of stereo audio to up to 8 different sets of headphones, fed from the Dante AoIP network. A typical application might be to provide common headphone feeds for guests in a radio studio, coming directly from the AoIP network.
Each output has front panel unbalanced 1/4” & 3.5mm jack sockets and a rotary level control. The front panel potentiometers adjust the headphone volumes from mute (fully anticlockwise) to 0dB of gain when fully clockwise. This is useful if the Dante stream level is low or high and requires adjusting.
There are 8 parallel 1/4” jacks on the rear panel, for ease of wiring if the unit is installed in an enclosed rack.
Each of the 8 professional headphone outputs can each select between 2 stereo Dante sources which are routed via Dante controller. The level of each stereo Dante stream can be adjusted ±12dB using one of the two front panel rotary controls. The unit supports AES67 operation and is Dante Domain Manager compliant.
The AVN-AH8 front panel contains a power (PoE) LED, a DC LED, a network link status LED, and a clock LED. A recessed reset switch is also provided.
The unit is powered via Power over Ethernet (PoE) or a 12VDC input via a locking 2.5mm DC Input, 2A minimum rating.
