Product Overview

The DN9680 is a premium quality, multi channel KLARK TEKNIK AES50 extender. Designed to stream up to 192 bidirectional channels of 24 bit audio up to 1,000 m via optical fibre or 100 m via CAT5 copper cable.

The DN9680 takes 8 AES50 connections and converts them to a gigabit Ethernet snake format for transport to another DN9680 to be re-converted to 8 AES50 connections on a port-for-port basis. DN9680 includes Neutrik etherCON connectors for the AES50 and Copper Snake ports and a Neutrik opticalCON DUO connector for the Optical Snake port.

The DN9680 includes an internal web server and is configured by a simple web browser configuration utility accessed via the built-in Ethernet port - this is independent of computer operating system and runs in popular web browser software. The various clocking parameters and menu options are accessible from the browser menu with front panel LED indication for the status of each option and each audio connection.

The DN9680 delivers Ultra-low latency of 0.1ms from input to output for seamless audio transfer.
