Dante AVIO: Do Dante AVIO adapters require a power source?
Yes, all Dante AVIO adapters require a power source. Most Dante AVIO adapters require the use of a network switch with POE (power-over-Ethernet) capabilities or the use of an 802.3af compliant PoE injector device. The Dante AVIO USB adapter also has a third option – it can also receive power through the USB device to which it connects if that device has adequate power output. If using a switch with POE, make sure it is configured to send power.
