The ESI planet 22x is a 2-channel Dante audio interface offering operability as a networked Dante audio device or host-connected audio interface for musicians, producers, and engineers in homes, studios, and live stage applications. The two XLR-1/4" combo inputs, which can accept mic, line, or Hi-Z sources, feed low-noise, high-gain preamplifiers with globally selectable phantom power. The 24-bit / 96 kHz converters ensure pristine analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog conversion.
Separate level controls are provided for the dual XLR line outputs and the 1/4" headphone jack, making it easy to route signal to multiple analog components such as speakers and headphones. The RJ45 port allows connectivity with a Dante network or a host computer. The PLANet 22x is compatible with Mac and Windows systems, and may be powered by the included 12 VDC power supply, or via a compliant PoE source. Bundled software and licenses from Bitwig, Stanton, Audified, and Audinate open creative opportunities for musicians, DJs, and podcast producers.
