Amphenol to debut Dante digital to analogue adapters at InfoComm

Melbourne, Australia – May 24, 2016: Amphenol is pleased to announce the release of the Amphe-Dante range of Dante™ digital to analogue audio adapters. Amphe-Dante adapters enable simple connection of analogue equipment to a Dante network.  They receive audio channels from a Dante network and provide studio-quality, low-latency audio via an XLR connector to analogue audio equipment.  Any audio available on the Dante network can be routed via the XLR outputs to an amplifier, powered speaker, mixing console, digital signal processor (DSP), or other analogue audio device. 

The unique cable dongle housing design is a world first for Dante™ enabled products allowing integrators to mount the adapter without additional rack or shelf space. Initially it will be offered in a single or two channel option with premium XLR connectors and a durable molded housing.  XLR adapters (for example XLR-to-RCA and XLR-to-phono) can be used to connect to audio equipment without built-in XLR connectors.

“The new Amphenol adapters allow a huge market of legacy products like amplifiers and loudspeakers to now be Dante-enabled,” said Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. “Affordable solutions that allow analog products to connect to a Dante network are an important piece of the audio networking ecosystem, and the Amphe-Dante products do just that.”

“We are excited to be working with Audinate to bring a truly unique product to the audio networking market.” said Stephen Richards, Sales & Marketing Director at Amphenol Australia. “The opportunity to collaborate with another successful Australian company offering world class technology will enable us to be at the forefront of digital audio connectivity”    


The Amphe-Dante adapters will be on display at InfoComm in the Amphenol booth #C12012 and the Audinate booth #C11529.
