I have a crazy idea. It might be good for future hardware revisions, or maybe it could be introduced in firmware. I don’t know the hardware spec well enough to say. Anyway, what if we only had to connect Ethernet cables for network and audio? Maybe the decks and mixer could be Dante enabled. Maybe it’s some other thing. Hopefully not too proprietary because it would be great to give a sound tech a cat cable to feed the main audio desk for the venue.
I’m not saying that the analog or digital audio ins/outs on the players and mixer should be replaced with RJ45, but it would be a great option, and based on what I’m seeing as an A/V tech at my day job, it would be fairly forward thinking.
Thanks for reading this, and I hope you’ll consider it. GLHF
