An Audinate Brooklyn II card provides the DANTE connectivity feature set required to successfully integrate into a new or an existing DANTE network.
The rear panel houses the AC power inlet, RF I/O for channels A and B via BNC connection, transformer-balanced audio output via a 3-pin XLR and 6.35mm jack sockets for channels 1 and 2, word clock I/O via BNC, 48/96kHz 24-bit AES3 digital audio output via 3-pin XLR, Ethernet connection via RJ-45 network connection, and 48/96kHz 24-bit DANTE connection also via RJ45 socket. The front of the receiver has two OLED displays, one for each of the two channels, showing information including name, RF signal, AF level, transmitter battery status, frequency selection, group, and menu functionality. Controls per channel include a rotary control to navigate through the menu, and four preset buttons to 'escape' (ESC), save, sync, and monitor. A 6.35mm jack headphone output is situated on the left, along with a rotary headphone volume control. A power button is located on the right side of the front panel.
