Tascam ML-16D - 16 channel Analog/Dante Converter

Tascam ML-16D - 16 channel Analog/Dante Converter

A powerful and flexible solution

The TASCAM ML-16D is a professional Dante-focused converter made specifically to insert or extract analog audio into or out of a Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) network using external breakout devices that utilize Sub-D format connectors.


The ML-16D has 2 D-Sub inputs and 2 D-Sub outputs, which can easily be connected to any of the many devices that utilize D-Sub connectors such as microphone preamplifiers, large and small format console mixers, audio interfaces, amplifiers, and euro block connector devices. This simple, yet elegant, solution enables audio to be quickly and easily inserted into – or extracted from – the Dante audio stream.

Flexible choice of connectors according to purposes

ML-16D is equipped with D-sub 25-pin connectors as analog line input/output connectors, and combining with optional breakout boxes enables conversion to Euro Block and XLR.
