Exstreamer P5

Universal, Multiformat IP Audio Decoder with Amplifier, PoE powered

The IP Speaker without the Speaker ! 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.

Main Features

  • AACplus, MP3, Ogg Vorbis, G.711, PCM Decoding
  • IP Streaming via TCP, UDP, RTP, Multicast
  • Amplified Output 5W (8 Ohm)
  • RS-485 Serial Port
  • Powered over Ethernet (PoE)

Designed in Switzerland and installed in tens of thousands of locations worldwide, the Barix Exstreamer series is the established standard for Instore Radio, Internet Radio, Entertainment, Paging, Intercom and Broadcast applications alike.
