OK, yes, he could have looked at the pictures and seen this and he can just use a plain RJ-45 cable to make it work but...
why was it designed this way? It's VERY easy to see how he got confused by looking at the tech specs on the SL32 and purchasing the cable listed there, not sure why everyone's voting him down
Studio Live tech specs: AVB Audio Network Port: Locking XLR Ethernet
advertises that you can purchase and use an Earmix through the AVB network
PreSonus SW5E has a locking XLR ethernet port
Earmix has ..... a non-locking RJ-45 port
I mean look at this picture on the SL32 website advertising the SL ecosystem...
why would you put a locking connector on multiple products in the ecosystem and then a non-locking connector on the other when they are meant to interface? in this case you can't utilize it in the configuration implied by the SL32 tech specs without someone making a custom cable or ignoring the fact that the SL or PW5E's connectors can lock.
