Listen Technologies is now shipping its new D Series Digital Signal Processing (DSP) network-controllable drivers with Dante (Digital Audio Network Through Ethernet) option for its ListenLoop system.
ListenLoop, powered by Ampetronic, “provides a personal listening experience to anyone with a telecoil technology in their hearing aid or cochlear implants without additional equipment,” according to Listen Technologies’ announcement. The Dante option improves audio transmission over Ethernet, the press release says.
The new D Series drivers consist of 10 and 14 Amp dual output drivers with a Dante network option. At a maximum of 14 amps per loop output, “the D14-2 driver is the most powerful product currently available,” according to Listen Technologies’ announcement.
Here’s more information about the Listen Technologies ListenLoop D-Series DSP drivers with Dante:
Both drivers offer a 60 percent or more increase in energy efficiency over existing solutions and an unsurpassed clarity of sound for both music and speech for superior intelligibility. Based on proven and highly reliable technology, both are backed by a five year warranty and Listen Technologies technical support.
Set up and control are streamlined with the D Series drivers. Audio signals for testing are built in and the amplifiers can be controlled from any browser over the network or via a wi-fi router. A Dante version of the driver includes a network RJ45 input connection enabling Dante plug and play network audio.
Dante is a combination of software, hardware and network protocols that deliver uncompressed, multi-channel, low-latency, digital audio over a standard Ethernet network using Layer 3 IP packets.
The amplifiers themselves are state-of-the-art, high output, high efficiency class “D” drivers with digital display and touch controls that provide a simple user interface. Network/Wi-Fi connectivity and control eases the process of setting up a loop system as well as providing additional capabilities for remote control, maintenance and monitoring.
In another first for high-power Class D Induction Loop drivers, installation is now performed with complete confidence thanks to unique multi-stage output filtering, which eliminates interference with other installed AV equipment as well as compliance with EMC regulations.
“We are pleased to offer these powerful drivers to venues that want to provide clear sound to a wider area for their customers,” said Russ Gentner, CEO of Listen Technologies. “Being able to control these drivers over the network revolutionizes the ease of use for hearing loop systems.”
