Are you looking for an audio solution that will allow you to seamlessly connect your analog audio devices to a Dante network? Look no further than the Blustream Dante Converters! In this article, we'll introduce you to the DA11AEN, DA11ADE, and DA11USB models and explain how they can elevate your audio experience.



Dante® Audio Converters

------------------------------

DA11AEN

Dante® Audio Analogue Encoder

DA11AEN Dante® Audio Analogue Encoder - has been designed to encode unbalanced or balanced 2ch analogue audio to Dante® digital signal.

First up is the DA11AEN. This handy little device encodes unbalanced or balanced 2ch analog audio signals into digital audio data that can be transmitted over any Dante network. The DA11AEN allows any non-Dante audio source such as mixing consoles, amplifiers, computers, and Blustream Matrix products or distribution products to be connected as a source within a Dante network. With its plug-and-play design, you can easily get up and running without any complicated setup procedures. The DA11AEN is powered using either PoE (Power over Ethernet) from any PoE network switch or via local 12v power supply input (sold separately).


  • Encodes unbalanced or balanced 2ch analogue audio to a Dante® digital signal

  • Supports 44.1, 48 & 96 KHz sample rates @ 24 Bit

  • Configurable Dante® device latency (supports 1, 2 or 5ms configurable using Dante® Controller)

  • Independent input sensitivity control per channel: +24dBu to -10dBV

  • Supports AES67 RTP audio transport

  • Features Class 1 802.3af PoE for powering of product from any PoE switch

Next, we have the DA11ADE. This device decodes Dante audio signals back into unbalanced or balanced 2ch analog audio, making it the perfect solution for those times when you need to connect a Dante-enabled device to an analog audio system. With its plug-and-play design, you can easily get up and running without any complicated setup procedures. The DA11ADE is powered using either PoE (Power over Ethernet) from any PoE network switch or via local 12v power supply input. The DA11ADE also supports AES67 RTP audio transport and independent gain per channel for adjustment of the audio sensitivity as required.


  • Decodes a Dante® digital signal to unbalanced or balanced 2ch analogue audio

  • Supports 44.1, 48 & 96 KHz sample rates @ 24 Bit

  • Configurable Dante® device latency (supports 1, 2 or 5ms configurable using Dante® Controller)

  • Independent output gain control per channel: +18dBu to -10dBV

  • Supports AES67 RTP audio transport

  • Features Class 1 802.3af PoE for powering of product from any PoE switch

DA11USB

Dante® USB Audio Encoder / Decoder


DA11USB Dante® USB Audio Encoder / Decoder - has been designed to both encode 2ch USB audio to a Dante® digital signal, and decode a Dante® digital signal to 2ch USB audio.
DA11USB Dante® USB Audio Encoder / Decoder

Last but not least, we have the DA11USB. This device is a USB-to-Dante converter that allows you to connect any USB audio device to a Dante network. With its plug-and-play design, you can easily get up and running without any complicated setup procedures. The DA11USB has been designed to both encode 2ch USB audio to a Dante digital signal and decode a Dante digital signal to 2ch USB audio. It features both USB Type-B and USB-C connections, selectable via a switch, and is a plug & play device that can be powered either using PoE (Power Over Ethernet) or with 5V from the USB device. The DA11USB also supports AES67 RTP audio transport.


  • Encodes 1ch USB audio to Dante® digital signal

  • Decodes a Dante® digital signal to USB audio

  • Selectable USB audio between USB Type-B and USB-C inputs

  • Compliant with USB Audio Device Class Specification V1.0

  • Supports 44.1 & 48 KHz sample rates @ 16 Bit

  • Configurable Dante® device latency (supports 1, 2 or 5ms configurable using Dante® Controller)

  • Supports AES67 RTP audio transport

  • Features Class 3 IEEE 802.3af PoE for powering of product from any PoE switch

  • Supports power via 5V USB for when network switch does not support PoE
