    Hi,
    The onward march of Dante has left those of us with SQ Mixers somewhat sidelined. I have recently had the pleasure of working with an SQ-6 and what a pleasure it was!
    Is there any talk of either A&H or a 3rd party looking at some sort of interface to give QU users and their relatively new kit access to Dante other than the USB route…..

    I think there are several projects using Raspberry Pi as a Dante server. Could possibly be programmed to convert the Qu USB into Dante though latency might be an issue.

    There are plenty of third party analog to Dante converters out there right now. The problem is cost. Even the cheapest converters run about $50/channel and the cost can easily get up to hundreds of dollars per channel. For example, Tascam makes a 32 channel analog to Dante converter box that runs about $2000 (without the DB25 breakout cable which are also expensive) and that is on the cheaper end of the scale.

    Of course when you compare that to the cost of a new console and a Dante I/O card to go with it, it seems more reasonable.
