How do IP Speakers work? IP Speakers convert IP audio (decode) into traditional electrical audio signals and then boost (amplify) the signal to produce sound. In this sense, IP Speakers are: IP audio decoder/amplifiers, combined with a traditional speaker cone (the speaker/cone that produces the audio is the same for both tradtional or IP Speakers).
IP Audio Decoder / Amplifiers: Combining the decoding/amplification and speaker components within a single product formfactor is possible. However, this market is comparatively expensive, offering very limited availability and choice. So, when considering IP Speakers, we believe the best approach is a solution that separates the decoding/amplification function from the speakers themselves. This creates a cost effective solution, affording much improved speaker choice and flexibility (connect to ANY 8ohm speaker on the market).
