Can Dante stageboxes be used as interfaces?

Evaluating hardware for an event where I need to about 8x8 analog channels in and out of a Dante network.

I see there are a bunch of stageboxes that are Dante enabled that would do what I need, it appears.

Are stageboxes designed to only connect to their respective consoles? Is Dante just being used for transport, or do they adopt the full flexibility of Dante?

PreSonus uses AVB for networking. They will not work with the Dante protocol.

If you think of PreSonus products there were only the RM/RML32AI and RM/RML16AI rack mixers, which could be equipped with a Dante card. There were some active loudspeaker also, which had some Dante connection. Currently there is no PreSonus product for a network based on Dante. The AVB protocol is not compatible.

Maybe this the Dante I/O interface you are looking for: Neutrik NA2-IO-DLINE.
