Designed specifically with seamless TV integration and Bluetooth audio in mind, the SOUND HUB COMPACT wireless audio preamplifier combines all the functions and interface facilities needed to play the central role in a complete wireless active Hi-Fi system. It can handle a variety of wired digital and analogue sources, including HDMI ARC, and also pair with Bluetooth audio devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptop and desktop computers to enable entirely wireless audio playback. The SOUND HUB COMPACT can be installed on a table, shelf or furniture unit or be direct wall-mounted using its keyhole slot features.
The system will even automatically switch on when a previously paired Bluetooth device is connected and playback initiated. There’s no complex control app to learn, just automatic input switching and intuitive source based volume control.
Thanks partly to utilising a relatively un-congested radio band, and partly to the use of a protocol specifically designed for audio data, the SOUND HUB COMPACT and OBERON C wireless connection is highly stable and introduces next to no packet loss. Feed-forward error correction is employed however to eliminate the results of packet loss should it occur. The sub 15 mS input to speaker latency of the system means also that the SOUND HUB COMPACT and OBERON C system can be used in audiovisual systems with no resulting loss of lip-sync.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT wireless connection protocol is a proprietary 30 bit digital stream broadcast over the 5.2 GHz or the 5.8 GHz band. The optimal band option is selected automatically depending on the local radio signal environment.
