Product Details


The Barix Exstreamer 200 and Exstreamer 205 are IP audio decoders that convert IP audio streams into traditional analogue audio to create various commercial audio designs and applications. Both versions contain integrated amplifiers with 2 x 25w audio outputs (2 x separate channels) for direct connection of 1 or 2 8ohm speakers.

The Exstreamer 200 is configured with USB memory. The Exstreamer 205 is configured with microSD memory.

Use the Barix Exstreamer 200 and 205 to decode audio streams from an IP audio source – eg. Internet Radio, IP music, IP paging, public address (pa) / tannoy Background Music (BGM) or SIP IP telephony. Configured with an integrated amplifier, the audio output from the Exstreamer is directly connected to 8ohm speaker/s.

Abletek Note: We have installed Barix Exstreamer 200/205 devices within many of our own commercial audio projects. Create your choice of IP speaker… Used to connect to different types and designs of traditional speakers (ceiling, wall, horn, projector or column).
