The IP Speaker without the Speaker!
£242.67 £291.20

The PoE powered Exstreamer P5 turns any 8 Ohm Speaker into an IP Speaker with 5W output power. An RS-485 and IR port can be used for local control.

The Exstreamer P5 is a member of the Barix Exstreamer product family, versatile Audio over IP codecs (encoder/ decoder) for use in a wide field of applications, from broadcast to instore, from distribution of music in hotels to SIP telephone paging applications.

Based on reliable, embedded, low power, solid state technology, the device is ideally suited for 24/7 operations, does not need cooling or maintenance, and is not prone to usual issues caused by operating systems.

The Exstreamer P5 provides amplified audio (5W RMS) directly into an 8 Ohm speaker. The device draws its power from an 802.3af Ethernet connection.

A serial and IR port (on an RJ-45 connector) allows direct connection of the Barix VSC or similar in-room controls
