Barix Extreamer 205

September 6, 2011

IP audio device with amplifier

Building on its existing IP audio receiver technology, Barix has released the Exstreamer 205 IP, which adds dual 25W power amplifiers and a local, line-level stereo input. Originally designed for retail installations, the added features could be useful for radio remotes when multiple areas need to be covered, or used as an in-house monitoring system. The unit also includes a MicroSD slot for local playout of encrypted content directly from the device. The Exstreamer 205 decodes and plays multi-protocol and multi-format audio streams, including MP3, AACplusV2, WMA, PCM, G.711 and EtherSound.
