The A10-RACK is a 1-RU enclosure which accepts slot-in wireless receivers such as the Audio Limited A10-RX or other brand receivers.
The A10-RACK features built-in power and antenna distribution plus Dante for up to 4 two-channel slot-in receivers. That is a total of eight channels of Dante, plus AES digital outputs, or analog outputs- all in a single, sleek, 1-RU chassis. The A10-RACK accommodates single-channel Unislot receivers and most two-channel Superslot-compatible receivers, such as Audio Limited's A10-RX or other models from Lectrosonics and Wisycom utilizing the D-sub 25 pin interface.
The Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet protocol, better known as Dante, allows for true networking where signal can be sent to many destinations without degradation or extra hardware. Connect the A10-RACK to a Dante network, and all eight channels of high-quality audio from the wireless receivers can be transported over a single Cat5 network cable. Monitoring and routing of signals from transmitters to receivers is simplified with the Dante Controller, a free software application from Audinate.
The A10-RACK also sports RF inputs with 12V powering of active antennas, plus loop-thru connections for another A10-RACK. This provides seamless integration between two connected A10-RACKs with a single pair of antennas - resulting in reduced complexity for 16-channel configurations and additional cost savings.
The A10-RACK is powered with a standard 4-pin F-XLR 10-18v DC power supply, like the Sound Devices XL-WP4 (shown right). This power supply should be capable of providing 3A minimum for proper powering of the A10-RACK and the slot receivers.
