AES59, Audio application of 25-way D-type connectors in balanced circuits, has been published
A new standard, AES59-2012, AES standard for professional audio - Audio application of 25-way D-type connectors in balanced circuits, has been published 2012-08-18
This document describes a standard contact assignment and gender convention for users of the 25-contact D-type connector as a multi-channel balanced audio interconnection, in analogue or AES3 digital form, to facilitate interconnection of equipment from different suppliers using standardized cables. The intent is to simplify the rapid and reliable interconnection of equipment in temporary installations, perhaps using rented equipment, although the method may be extended to permanent installations where appropriate.
