The RH-AUDIO IP speaker consists of one master active speaker with built-in 2-channel "L&R" stereo amplifiers 20W*2, and one slave passive speaker.
By distributing digitally, with this IP enabled speaker you can avoid the typical issues with noise and signal degradation that occurs in an analog system. At the same time, you simplify wiring down to CAT-5 or 6 cables. That said, these digital distribution technologies fall short when we consider the future requirements for audio distribution and rendering.
With this IP based speaker you will enjoy a quicker and more flexible installation than traditional wired analog systems. It’s easier than ever to install a very wide paging or intercom system using your existing Ethernet network, this speaker can be placed wherever you have a network drop without the need for long speaker wire connections from a large central amplifier.
The IP based speaker offers an ideal solution for some venues that need to do large-scale paging and multi-zoned background music across multiple facilities and locations with complex distribution and scheduling needs such as government agencies, schools, factories, commercial buildings, residential areas and hospitals etc.
