PreSonus’ SL-Dante-SPK upgrade option card for StudioLive™ AI-series Active Integration™ loudspeakers is now available, making StudioLive AI-series the first Dante-enabled active loudspeakers on the market. The SL-Dante-SPK card houses one Ethercon connection for Dante™ audio networking and remote control via the free SL Room Control application for StudioLive AI-series loudspeakers.
Dante-enabled StudioLive AI-series 3-way active loudspeakers allow users to create a complete, networked audio system with any Dante-enabled mixer using a standard 1 GB Ethernet switch and Audinate’s Dante digital-media networking technology, which offers no-hassle, self-configuring, true plug-and-play digital audio networking.
Users can also connect non-Dante mixers, such as a first-generation StudioLive, to the analog inputs of a Dante-equipped AI loudspeaker and then broadcast the signal over the Dante network using CAT5 cables. This makes Dante-enabled StudioLive AI an ideal solution for large FOH systems.
The Dante upgrade works with StudioLive 312AI, 315AI, 328AI, and 328i loudspeakers and the StudioLive 18sAI subwoofer. It is available from PreSonus dealers and from the StudioLive AI Loudspeaker Accessories store, with an expected MAP/street price of $199
