Cranborne Audio N8

C.A.S.T. Distribution Hub and Audio Over Cat 5 System

Cranborne Audio N8 is an audio signal distribution device that uses Cranborne Audio’s CAST system to transform network cables (Cat 5e, Cat 6 or Cat 7) into 4-channel analog whips and breakout-boxes, which can be used to route the signal in the studio or on stage. The N8 features 25-pin DSub I/O connectors and converts 8 analog inputs and 8 outputs to Cranborne Audio’s proprietary CAST system. This creates an ingenious plug-and-play signal routing with any other CAST-enabled product

Cranborne Audio N8 routing

With 4 CAST ports, the N8 allows you to connect up to 4 Cranborne Audio breakout boxes simultaneously for 16 channels. Since each CAST port is bi-directional, 2 inputs and 2 outputs are sent/received with each CAST connector and cable. By connecting a Cranborne Audio N22H* to an N8, it is possible to place an artist with 2 microphones and headphones in one room, receiving the signal from the microphones and sending the headphone mix from a completely different room. All with just one network cable. Or you can use the N8 with 4 N22Hs to send a headphone mix to musicians located in the live room or next room. Because the CAST works at distances of up to 100m, you can truly connect anywhere. Thanks to dedicated front-panel CAST output routing switches, each of the N8’s CAST connections can send the same stereo signal from inputs 1-2 to all connected CAST devices (or separate stereo signals to each) as needed. artists must listen to their own mix.

The CAST signal distribution system

CAST is a high-quality plug-and-play system for transporting audio from point A to point B in an orderly manner without complicated wiring. It also supports +48V phantom power to power active DI boxes and condenser microphones. Since network cables are now commonplace even in home environments, cabling an entire studio with Cat5, Cat6, Cat7 and CAST cables is much cheaper than using traditional XLR cables.

Thanks to a completely passive design (no power required to use it) the N8 is ideal for the stage, small enough to be hidden in the rack or rack-mountable with the rack-mountable kit (optional). It is a cabling solution designed to transform your open space into a real studio.
