New Tascam Multichannel Interfaces are Dante-Enabled and Streamlined More Than Ever

Tascam, the professional audio division of TEAC Corporation, has announced two new Dante-enabled multichannel interfaces to its line up.

The California audio company points out that as the acceptance of Dante-enabled audio products across the professional audio market continues to increase, the newly announced ML-32D and ML-16D multichannel interfaces installs easily into a variety of systems using these solutions.

Tascam explains that its latest multichannel interfaces are multichannel line level to Dante products and Dante to line level solutions.

The ML-32D is a 32-channel product and the ML-16D is a 16-channel product. Both can be used in combination with analog and digital products, including the Tascam DA-6400, the SS-R250N and the SS-CDR250R multichannel recorders.

Tascam Multichannel Interfaces Eliminate Old, Unused Features

According to the company, its ML-32D and ML-16D multichannel interfaces provide professional integrators and audio engineers with a choice of solutions that deliver “pure” Dante connectivity.

The new products omit features such as mid-level microphone preamps, MADI and S/PDIF interfaces, and other little-used functions.

Tascam states the multichannel, Dante-enabled interfaces support digital audio formats up to 24-bit/96kHz.

Both products also feature analog line level inputs and outputs via D-Sub connectors—eight on the ML-32 multichannel interface, and four on the ML-16 multichannel interface.

Both products also offer users features like front-panel LED meters that communicate signal level and overload for each active channel.

In addition, the company says that both multichannel interface products will ship in early 2018. The ML-32 will carry an MSRP of $2,300 and the ML-16 will carry an MSRP of $1,600.

Professional integrators can see Tascam at the upcoming Integrated Systems Europe (ISE)  in Amsterdam on Feb. 5-9 in booth number 15-T260.

Music professionals and residential integrators can visit Teac and Tascam at the Gibson exhibits during CES 2018.

The annual CES runs from Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas.
