Cedar Audio DNS 2

In response to the requests for a two-channel version of its DNS 8 Live, Cedar has announced the DNS 2 with a new DNS algorithm whose Learn function identifies and adapts to the background noise and then dials-in appropriate noise attenuation required. This offers near-zero latency, allowing the DNS 2 to be used for live sound and live broadcast, eliminating traffic noise, air conditioning, wind, rain, babble and general background noise from audio signals. It can also help to compensate for unfavourable acoustic conditions and poor microphone placement, and will suppress excessive reverberation.

Despite being small and light enough to be carried in a pocket or equipment bag, the DNS 2 offers analogue line and ultra low-noise microphone inputs (the latter with switchable 48V phantom power), an AES digital input, and both analogue and digital outputs. With its 12V power input and mounting points for use with other equipment, sound engineers can use it in the field as easily as in the studio or edit suite.

Key features:
• Small, light and portable.
• Near-zero latency.
• Analogue (mic/mic 48V/line) and digital I/O.
• Two linkable channels of dialogue noise suppression.
• Fully automatic processing in Learn mode.
• Floating point processor, 2.4 GFLOP/s, 40-bit resolution.
• Digital input and output (AES3).
• AD/DA conversion: 24-bit resolution.
• Sample rate (internal sync.) 48kHz.
• Sample rate (external sync.) 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 96kHz.
• Balanced analogue line inputs and outputs (+4dBu with 20dB headroom).
• Gain range: -6dB to +54dB.
• Dynamic range: > 102dB.
• Mic preamps: +18dB to +78dB/dynamic range: >102dB (36dB gain) with individually switchable phantom power.
• Power: 8V DC-17.5V DC (nominal 12V).
• Power consumption: 4W typical, 6W maximum.
• Mains operation (85V AC-250V AC) via supplied adapter.
• Dimensions: 164mm x 110mm x 44mm.
• Weight: <500g.

The end-user price of DNS 2 in the UK will be £2,200. Prices in other countries will be available from the local CEDAR office or dealer. The DNS 2 will be available at the end of Q2 2016.
