The Model 5204 Interface is a general-purpose audio device that supports applications utilizing the Dante® Audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. Two 2-channel ("stereo") analog line-level audio signals can be connected to the Model 5204 and then converted to two channels on an associated Dante connection.
Analog audio signals connect to line input A by way of a 3-conductor ("stereo") 3.5 mm jack. This allows the direct interfacing of signals from a variety of sources such as personal audio and multimedia players, smartphones, and personal computers. These signals typically have an average (nominal) signal level in the range of –20 to –10 dBu. Line input B supports connection of balanced analog audio signals using two XLR connectors. Average signal levels for these types of signals are typically in the range of 0 to +4 dBu.
