Product Description


The ATND8677 is a Dante-enabled microphone desk stand for use with any gooseneck microphone with a three-pin XLRM-type output connector. The desk stand is designed for surface-mount applications such as high-quality sound reinforcement, conferencing, distance learning and other demanding sound pickup applications. No longer relying on a standalone Dante audio interface, and benefitting from a switch and an indicator light, the ATND8677 connects directly to the audio network via a standard RJ-45 and a structured wiring port, ensuring high flexibility during installation and fast relocation.

  • Microphone base for Dante™ system. Connects directly to the network via a standard Ethernet cable (RJ-45 Cat5 8P8C) – no need for expensive audio cable or soldering

  • XLRF entry for quick and easy connection of any XLRM gooseneck microphone

  • Local or remote control of low-cut UniSteep® filter, red/green LED status indicator and phantom power (P12)

  • Local or remote control of gain (+ 30dB / + 40dB / + 50dB / Mute)

  • Scalable across 512 Dante™ bidirectional audio channels

  • Low-cut filter to reduce low-frequency ambient noise without affecting sound reproduction

  • Powered by the network (PoE – Power Over Ethernet)

  • Heavy die-cast case and non-slip silicone foam bottom pads minimize coupling of surface vibration to the microphone

  • 5 years guarantee
