SoundTube Releases 2-Channel Dante Amp With Built-In DSP

SoundTubeSoundTube’s IPD-Hub 2 Amplifier is a two-channel Dante amp with DSP built-in. The amp is AES67 compatible and powered by PoE, PoE+ or 40-watt PoE. It includes an RJ45 Ethernet connection and can be used with Radio Design Labs Format A (RDL) or Attero Tech Axiom line level, mic level, balanced XLR or Bluetooth input devices — stereo or mono, virtually any type of input.

With the IPD-Hub 2 Amplifier, integrators can create a complete Dante-enabled audio system using SoundTube RVC-1 controls without using a traditional DSP. Using a decentralized DSP amplifier in each zone rather than a centralized DSP greatly reduces hardware costs making an IPD-HUB 2 networked audio system about the same price as a conventional 70/100-volt distributed audio system.

Designed for small to medium-sized applications, including bars, restaurants, hospitality, education facilities and more, the IPD-Hub 2 DSP amplifier is the heart of a complete networked audio system. Local and Dante-inputs with simplified network control allow the IPD-Hub 2 to address the network requirements for commercial audio connectivity. The IPD-Hub 2 includes two RJ-45, one Dante and one local input, and a two-channel speaker output for flexible audio distribution.
