Important Information

Audinate® Dante™ is a sophisticated audio network protocol for the professional transmission of audio with a multitude of channels, high sampling rates and it can also provide redundancy.


PLEASE NOTE: Some Network routers, switches or WiFi access points can only operate with 100MBIT/S AND NOT GIGABIT AS RECOMMENDED FOR DANTE BY AUDINATE! This limits the maximum number of audio channels on the network and might increase the minimum latency as well.



Make sure the network connector is green and shows 1G indicating a Gigabit connection. It does not work properly with 100 MBit/s. In case you have 100 Mbit, modify the network cable connection to connect you computer directly to KLANG:quelle.
