The new BO-32DE 32 Channel D-Sub breakout box provides 16 input and 16 output channels. Four rear-panel DB25 connectors connect to an ML-series interface, and four front-panel Euroblock connectors provide analog network input for microphone and line-level audio signals. Euroblock, or European-style terminal block, is a low-voltage, pluggable terminal block that employs solderless connectors with screw terminals to clamp connecting wires.
For applications requiring XLR connectivity, TASCAM offers two new breakout boxes for ML-series analog/Dante converters. The BO-16DX/IN offers 16 channels of analog audio input on front-panel female XLR connectors. Each of its two rear-panel DB25 connectors send eight channels of audio to an ML-series converter. Similarly, TASCAM's new BO-16DX/OUT breakout box receives 16 channels of audio from an ML-series converter via a pair of rear-panel DB25 connectors and sends analog audio output on 16 front-panel male XLR connectors.
TASCAM's ML-32 analog/Dante converter inserts 32 channels of audio into a Dante stream and extracts 32 channels from a Dante stream, using DB25 connectors. The ML-16 offers 16 channels of input and 16 channels of output on DB25s. Both converters feature dual redundant Ethernet jacks that support primary and secondary connections; handle up to 24-bit, 96 kHz digital audio; and are AES67- and Ravenna-compatible. With the addition of the BO-series breakout boxes, the ML-32 and ML-16 provide an all-TASCAM solution that can be interfaced with a wide variety of audio devices, including direct connection to a TASCAM's DA-6400 64-channel digital multitrack recorder/player without requiring its optional Dante card.
