Network all your audio gear easily and cost-effectively with Dante AVIO™

Dante AVIO Adapters let you use all your legacy audio gear with any Dante-connected system, delivering the interoperability, performance and scalability that only networking can bring. Cost effective, compact and built for the road, Dante AVIO adapters bring the modern network connectivity that every audio pro needs in their toolbox.



Dante AVIO adapters are available for 3 popular types of audio I/O: Analog, AES3 and USB.



Plug & Play

Each Dante AVIO adapter is a complete, high-performance Dante device, delivering all the automation and ease of use that have made Dante the most popular audio networking solution worldwide. Dante AVIO adapters are automatically discovered and ready to use when connected, and no separate power supplies are required – just use a common PoE (Power over Ethernet) switch and Dante AVIO adapters are ready to go. The USB adapter can also be powered via USB.

 

 



 

 

Built for the Road

We’ve made Dante AVIO adapters road-ready and tour-tough. Sonically-welded polycarbonate enclosures and quality hardware are used throughout, while cable assemblies are stress-tested to ensure reliable operation under grueling conditions. Toss them in your toolbox, show after show.



All Dante

Dante AVIO adapters are all fully-functional Dante interfaces, with all the features you’d expect from Dante audio networking. Each one delivers bit-perfect audio reproduction, super-low latency and sample-accurate synchronization across the entire network. All Dante devices automatically discover one another, and the entire system is managed by our easy-to-use Dante Controller software on any connected PC or Mac. Most importantly, every Dante device can connect to every other Dante device – no questions asked. All Dante AVIO adapters are fully compatible with Dante Domain Manager (DDM) for IT-level security and management. AES67 is supported for connection to non-Dante networks.

 

 



Cost-effective

 

We’ve worked hard to make the Dante AVIO family of products a cost-effective addition to any system or piece of gear, so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of Dante. Audio networking has never been easier or more affordable, no matter how you choose to use it.



Dante AVIO Analog Input & Output

 

Dante AVIO Analog Adapters allow you to use the audio gear you already own with your Dante network. Don’t abandon trusted compressors, equalizers or analog power amplifiers - adapt them to the world of audio networking with Dante AVIO. Dante AVIO Analog Adapters are available as balanced line-level single or dual-channel input or output adapters, with high-quality XLR connectors. Use the Analog Dante AVIO Adapters to add Dante networking to analog amplifiers, powered loudspeakers, signal processors, music players or any other analog audio device, for hum-free digital signal distribution throughout your audio network.

 

 



Dante AVIO AES3

 

The Dante AVIO AES3/EBU Adapter supports 2x2 channels, with high-quality XLR input and output connectors and built-in asynchronous sample rate conversion. Use the AES3 Dante AVIO Adapters to add Dante networking to amplifiers, speaker processors, mixing consoles, video systems and more.



Dante AVIO USB

 

The Dante AVIO USB Adapter supports 2x2 channels and is perfect for BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) applications in installed audio systems such as conference rooms. Dante AVIO USB is a class-compliant USB 2.0 audio device, so no drivers or additional software is required on Windows, macOS or Linux.
