The Cranborne Audio N8 is an advanced audio distribution hub that uses Cranborne Audioís C.A.S.T. system to transform network cable (Cat 5e, Cat 6, or Cat 7) into 4-channel analog snakes and breakout boxes that can be routed around the studio or stage. Featuring Input and Output connectors on DB25, N8 converts 8 analog inputs and 8 analog outputs to Cranborne Audioís proprietary C.A.S.T. system and creates ingenious, plug-and-play signal routing with any other C.A.S.T.-enabled product.

With 4 dedicated C.A.S.T. ports, N8 allows up to 4 Cranborne Audio breakout boxes to be connected at once for 16 channels of audio routing with any audio interface, mixer, or audio installation.

As each C.A.S.T. port is bi-directional, 2 inputs and 2 outputs are sent/received through each C.A.S.T. connector and cable to allow for dual recording and monitoring capabilities. Connect a Cranborne Audio N22H (sold separately) to an N8 and you can put a performer, vocal mic, and headphones in one room, whilst receiving the vocal mic signal and sending a headphone mix from a completely different room - all with just one Network cable! Or use N8 with 4x N22Hís to send headphone mixer to musicians located around the live room or next door. As C.A.S.T. works at distances up to 100m/330ft, you can be connected anywhere at home or on the road.

With dedicated C.A.S.T. output routing switches on the front panel, each C.A.S.T. connection on N8 can send the same stereo signal from inputs 1-2 to all connected C.A.S.T. devices or separate stereo signals to each if performers need to hear their own mix.

C.A.S.T. is a high-quality and plug-and-play method of transporting audio from A to B with the least amount of cabling mess. It also supports 48v phantom power in all directions for active DI boxes and condenser microphones. Best of all, as networking cable is common-place in peopleís homes, a whole studio re-wire with Cat 5e, Cat 6, Cat 7, and C.A.S.T. is cheaper than equivalent XLR looms and copper snakes.

With a completely passive design, no power is required for full operation and C.A.S.T connectivity. N8 is rugged enough for the stage, small enough to hide in the rack, or rack-mountable with the optional Half-Rack Kit and itís a cabling solution designed to transform your open space into a studio.
