The Rane EXP2x is an input/output expander that enables the HAL1x to send 32 and receive 32 audio channels from other Dante devices.

Use the EXP2x to interface a HAL1x System with a Dante network. Applications abound in houses of worship, installed sound, performing arts venues, education and corporate environments. The EXP2x allows connecting a Dante network between facilities or multiple independent HAL1x systems.

Built-in sample rate converters support 48 kHz or 96 kHz sample rates on the Dante network.

Daisychain up to 16 EXP2x Expanders to a single HAL1x to max-out at 512 x 512 channels on both a single cable on the Dante network and the HAL1x’s Expansion Bus. The HAL1x is capable of 32 Expanders on its bus, so the EXP2x can be combined with other Expanders. For example, use 16 EXP2x Expanders with 512 input and 512 output channels, and then put on another 16 EXP3x Expanders for more outputs.

The EXP2x is equipped with a Secondary Dante port for either Redundant Mode or Switch Mode. Use Dante Controller software for all network audio and EXP2x Brooklyn II card management.

Front panel and Halogen software indicators for Dante connection, network status, flow active, and audio signal present aid troubleshooting. Dante Controller provides all network setup, monitoring, control, diagnostics and troubleshooting beyond compare; while Halogen reads, but does not edit the Dante setup, simplifying which software to use and eliminating conflict.

Dante provides a no-hassle, self-configuring network with ultra low latency, while providing a true plug-and-play digital audio network using standard Internet Protocols on existing infrastructure — without requiring a dedicated network. The technology is built on global networking standards, making signal distribution more flexible, cost-effective and user-friendly and has been used at some of the largest live events and sophisticated installations worldwide.

Rane EXP2x Features:

  • Supports 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96 kHz Dante network sample rates.
  • Up to 32 transmit channels and up to 32 receive channels (at any supported sample rate - that’s right, even at 96 kHz).
  • 32 bi-directional channels of high-quality sample rate conversion.
  • Switch Mode and Redundant Mode for the Secondary Dante network port.
  • Clear signal presence and fault status indication in Halogen Software and on the EXP2x front panel.
  • Discoverable and configurable using Dante Controller software.
