The SOUND HUB COMPACT plays a central role in your active wireless Hi-Fi system. It transmits your audio sources to the wireless DALI eco system, which includes OBERON C, CALLISTO C and RUBICON C speakers. The SOUND HUB COMPACT was designed with compact dimensions and is slim enough to fit behind a wall-mounted TV.
Offering HDMI ARC, the SOUND HUB COMPACT is designed for TV audio - switching on and off in sync with the TV. Additionally it enables the use of the TV remote control to adjust volume and mute functions.
Inputs & connections
With five discrete audio inputs available, the SOUND HUB COMPACT can connect to almost any audio device - digital or analogue. It features no less than four ways to connect a TV. Including ample possibilities to connect music streaming or conventional audio devices.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT and OBERON C wireless connection is highly stable and introduces next to no packet loss. The robust nature of the wireless connection means that the Sound Hub Compact can be located as much as 10 m apart from the speakers without risk of connection failure or signal interruptions.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT Bluetooth input features AAC and aptX HD high performance codecs and enables smartphones, tablets, laptop or desktop computers, or any other Bluetooth audio source easily and quickly to play either locally stored or streamed music. Even Bluetooth equipped TVs.
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.
The SOUND HUB COMPACT transmits to either OBERON C, CALLISTO C or RUBICON C speakers using a proprietary 30 bit wireless protocol derived from the acclaimed DALI SOUND HUB.
