Network Connection

On the rear of the M-32 DA Pro, an RJ45 connector labeled NETWORK provides a connection to ethernet. Two link speeds are supported: 100 Mb/s and 1 Gb/s.

A green LED (left) signals a successful link. A yellow LED (right) signals network traffic (blinking).

Both straight and crossover cables can be used (Auto MDI-X). Cable lengths of up to 100m are supported when using Cat 5e or higher classification.

The network port is used to send and receive:
  • up to eight AVB audio streams when connected to AVB switches and endpoints,

  • remote status/control with ATDECC, and

  • remote status/control with HTTP over IP routed networks.

The current link state is also shown on the display of the M-32 DA Pro. A small network port icon between the STATE and INPUT tabs can display the following states:
