ML-32D

A Powerful and Flexible Solution
The TASCAM ML-32D is a professional Dante-focused converter made specifically to insert or extract analog audio into or out of a Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) network using external breakout devices that utilize Sub-D format connectors.
The ML-32D has four D-Sub inputs and four D-Sub outputs, which can easily be connected to any of the many devices that utilize D-Sub connectors such as microphone preamplifiers, large and small format console mixers, audio interfaces, amplifiers, and euro block connector devices. This simple, yet elegant, solution enables audio to be quickly and easily inserted into or extracted from the Dante audio stream.

Primary and Secondary Network Connections Redundancy and Security
Primary and secondary connectors enable building a redundant system with a duplex network. Should the primary network route fails the ML-32D automatically switches to the secondary network route. This highly secure system prevents interruption and introduces no noise during the switch.
Integrated Signal/Overload Indicator
The front panel is equipped with a signal/overload indicator that enables monitoring of analog input/output signals. The signal indicator turns on when a signal level becomes lower than -60dBFs.
5 Selectable Reference Levels
The TASCAM ML-32D features selectable reference level setting from 5 maximum level options: +24dBu, +22dBu, +20dBu, and +18dBu (the standard level is +4dBu) and +15dBu (the standard level is +6dBu), which can accommodate to a variety of purposes including professional use in broadcasting studios, public address systems and recording environments.
