The AMP203 relies on PoE to receive both power and signal through a single networking cable
Audac has developed the AMP203, an amplifier with network input via Dante, which allows a full media networking solution to distribute uncompressed audio across a standard Ethernet network with near-zero latency, while also allowing all other data to be connected on the same network.
The AMP203 relies on PoE to receive both power and signal through a single networking cable. It can reportedly be integrated into any new or existing system. Decentralising a system by integrating an amplifier at each zone enables individual control of the audio while it is also distributed over the network. The AMP203 also features low-pass, band-pass and high-pass filters, and all configurations can be made via RS485 or Ethernet. The output connector uses a four-pin terminal block connector with 30W output power per channel and 60W when bridged.
Also new from Audac is the ARU20x relay module, designed for flexibility with myriad ways of switching the four, eight or more relays provided. Options include the integrated web interface, optional paging consoles and analogue contact triggering.
Meanwhile, the NMP40 Audio Streaming Sourcecon module allows users to playback from popular streaming services, such as Spotify, on a professional audio system via the cloud using a computer or mobile device as a controller.
