To add a bit into this discussion, we have recently invested in the Auvitran audio toolbox platform, a modular interface which allows for the construction of a Dante interface with a variety of input/output modules. These include XLR mic preamps as well as ADAT I/O so that we can also use our existing hardware (RME octamic, etc.) over Dante.
