    Dante AVIO USB IO Adapter

    Can I ask why you want to use them?

    If you are familiar with the Soundweb, and have one, give it a try. It's a professional unit with a great reputation, but has been overshadowed in recent years by newer dsp systems. I personally find the interface clunky compared to newer dsp systems.

    Repairs To Oppo Bdp-83

    I know tis is an old thread. However, I have a BDP-83 that has a shagged CD drawer (my fault), but the electronics apart from the leaky caps is fine. Does anyone know if we can get replacement drives from? Failing that, if anyone has one of these the electronics in mine are fine, so could be used for replacement parts.

    Mixer and Splitter

    How much pain do you want? TheRe are some very good audio conferencing systems on the market that it is not worth trying to build your own. Companies like Revolabs, Clearone, Biamp are all at different price points, and have solutions to suite different room sizes. They all include one very important function - acoustic echo cancellation. Without it you will not be able to get rid of the feedback, and the people at the other end of the conference will hate you.

    Dante Network Adapters

    One of the limitations of Dante is that it can't do video. You should check out the AVB protocol. Both video and audio in the one stream through the network. The implementation from Biamp TesiraLux does 4K60, 4.4.4 video. Unlike Dante AVB TSN is also an IEEE standard.

    Annoying earth hum issue using USB

    That rca isolator is most likely transformer isolation, so you will lose sound quality. Try just lifting the shield from the rca connections.
  7. I have an older Lavry DAC I use to run audio from my laptop to my tannoy self powered studio monitors. You may want to put a knob volume control between the laptop and monitors. I find myself forgetting where the volume has been set on the laptop.

    Dante Network Adapters

    They are interesting, but limited in that they are only two channel devices. I have QSC Qsys Core fitted with a Dante card and use the Dante virtual sound card software in my PC to send and receive audio direct, so don't need the adapters. Attero Tech also have some interesting new wall plates worth investigating.
  9. Two different formats. It was over 40 years ago that I used these bits, but from memory we would record onto a DAT audio recorder in .wav format, but I used the DAT drives for my computer backup. They could see but not read the files. You need a DAT audio recorder/player.
  10. As long as you don't need any crossover function, all it takes is two resistors. http://marcusmorris.blogspot.com.au/2010/04/stereo-to-mono-converter-how-to-do-it.html

    System For Warehouse Gym

    250 square metres is a large space. The sound system mentioned above will possibly work for you, but it depends on how loud you want to go. If you push these cheap PA systems too hard they can become harsh, although the on line specifications talk about dynamics, which should limit distortion caused by overdoing the speakers. However, 150 ways peer channel is not very powerful at all for what you are trying to do. I would suggest listening to a set of these at full volume before purchase. Personally, i would put in a distributed sound system. Multiple ceiling speakers and some sub woofers, then the music doesn't have to be loud for everyone to hear it. This does require some specialist design, though, and performance of any system also depends on the architecture and acoustics of the room. Another possible solution would be to stream music for people to listen to on their phones??
  12. JBL LSR305 and LSR sub would fit the bill.

    What's "good" in cheap outdoor speakers?

    They would work for a while, but they don't provide any IP rating. The OP said NOT protected from the weather, but the documentation for these suggests installation in a sheltered location. Sent from my SM-T815Y using Tapatalk
