Yamaha Network Audio Interface NAI48-ES

Yamaha Network Audio Interface NAI48-ES

A 48-channel AES/EBU and EtherSound interface that’s quick and easy to set up and use.

  • Transfer up to 48 channels of digital audio between console and stage or any other location via a single CAT5e Ethernet cable at sampling rates up to 96 kHz.
  • Eliminates noise problems that are unavoidable with conventional analog gear and multi-cable type setups, and dramatically reduces analog cable length for superior sound quality.
  • 48 AES/EBU inputs and 48 AES/EBU outputs are provided via 25-pin D-sub connectors.
  • Designed with Yamaha professional sound gear in mind: minimum setup hassle, trouble-free operation.
  • An external power supply can be used in addition to the internal power supply for redundant failsafe operation.
  • Use standard Ethernet hubs and routers to create any network configuration you need.
