Ro8-D Firmware V1.70 (Previous version)

Important Notice

  • Please do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network.
    Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts.
    Therefore we strongly recommend that:
  • 1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
    2. If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.
    * EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.

  • You need to update the Dante-MY16-AUD firmware to V3.3.9 or later before using the Dante-MY16-AUD with the CL series firmware V1.51 or later.
  • Dante Firmware Update Manager v1.4.5.7 included in zip files for CL/R series firmware V1.70 does not support Mac OS X 10.6.8.
    Please use Mac OS X 10.7.5, 10.8.5 or 10.9.γ€€Or use Windows XP, 7 or 8.

CL/QL/R Compatibility

Please make sure to use appropriate version of CL Editor which is compatible with your CL firmware in reference to the following compatibility chart. Using an unsupported Editor/firmware combination may result in unexpected behavior.
The Firmware Set is a set of main (and sub) firmware of the device and the Dante firmware. The version of Firmware Set is the same as the version of the main firmware. Refer to the release note of each firmware about the details of the Firmware Set.

Main Revisions and Enhancements

New Features

  • CL-series firmware V1.70 is supported.

Fixed bugs

  • Solved a problem in which, depending on the duration of a momentary power outage, the analog gain value could change, or the HA could no longer be controlled remotely.

Known issue

  • If the Dante Virtual Soundcard (DVS) is patched to the CL series device using Dante Controller, the patching may not be recalled correctly when the CL series device is restarted. Patch DVS again. In addition, when using a version of DVS for Windows that is older than v3.2.0, the patch after CH41 cannot be performed from CL series consoles.
    When updating, perform the update as described in β€œRi8-D/Ro8-D Firmware Update Guide.”


  • When setting up latency on the Dante Controller, and there is a discrepancy in latency with the transmit device or the receive device, the largest (slowest) latency setting becomes effective.
  • If the DIP switch REMOTE setting is switched between NATIVE and AD8HR, the device label is set to the default value, and the patch is also cleared.
  • On the CL, the following device labels are used for detecting a SUPPORTED DEVICE.
    # is a three-digit hexadecimal number containing the digits 0 - 9 and uppercase A - F (000 - FFF)
    *indicates any desired character (alphabetical uppercase or lowercase, numerals, or -(hyphen) may be used)
    Up to 31 characters including the 'Y' are supported.
    Make sure that the ID indicated by Y###- is not duplicated by any other R-series unit, even if it is a different size. However, as an example, a CL console can have the same ID as an R-series device. (### will be the UNIT ID value).
