New from CYP is the AU-A300-HBT, a compact 2-channel 30W Amplifier with integrated HDBaseT digital receiver for high quality, multi-zone audio distribution over standard Ethernet cable. Available from CIE-Group, UK distributor for CYP, the rack-mount unit is ideal for integration into remote AV zones in both commercial and residential environments. The AU-A300-HBT features direct inputs for HDMI, RCA, Toslink and stereo mini jack allowing AV source inputs which include MP3, iPod / iPad, and audio outputs from a television. The AU-A300-HBT Amplifier / HDBaseT Receiver is compatible with CYP’s comprehensive range of HDBaseT Matrix devices. The unit receives HDMI inputs and remote HDBaseT sources from the CYP Matrix or HDBaseT Transmitter, to allow high quality audio signals to be transmitted over distances of up to 100 metres using standard Cat5e/6/7 Ethernet cable. The amplifier also incorporates an additional HDBaseT output, to allow for additional HDBaseT zones, or can be used to repeat the signal to further HDBaseT 2 Channel Amplifier / Digital AV Receivers. Control of the AU-A300-HBT is either from the front panel LCD display, IR remote control or remotely using RS-232 or web GUI / Telnet. “CYP is focused on developing products that make the challenges of audio/visual connectivity and compatibility a thing of the past,” says Chris Edwards, Marketing Director of CIE-Group. “With a growing range of amplifiers, digital to analogue converters, HDMI audio management and audio over IP solutions, the company offers the integrator a ‘go-to’ solution for audio distribution. The AU-A300-HBT is a high performance, flexible and cost-effective amplifier, which makes use of the HDBaseT protocol, for new found levels of versatility in multi-room audio systems.” Summary of Key Features 30W per channel digital stereo amplifier Integrated HDBaseT input and output Control via remote control, RS-232 or IP (Web GUI or Telnet) Simultaneous audio outputs HDMI audio embedding Supports digital to analogue (DAC) and analogue to digital (ADC) conversion Compact design for remote in-zone application Supports PoE (Power over Ethernet) for connected compatible HDBaseT receivers www.cie-group.com
