Hi John

Thanks for the suggestions. The problem with AES50 is that it transmits the audio clock separately from the data, making it incompatible with standard Ethernet, at the hardware level. Allowing the AR2412 to output AES50 would mean new hardware that broke compatibility with ME-1/AviomĀ®.
As for the ME-1, you are right that removing the screen would save some of the cost, but any software savings in the unit (e.g. no setup menus, fixed channel map) wouldn’t really have an impact on the parts cost.

Cheers
