Neutrik has released the ground breaking XIRIUM wireless audio network. The system can transmit and receive up to 8 channels of uncompressed 48kHz 24 bit audio over the 5 GHz band with a latency of 3mS.
The product group is made up of a base station, portable transmitter unit and portable receiver unit. The TX and RX units have a single XLR or balanced TRS in or out, and each base station 4 pair of in/out. The systems stated range is given as 30 metres line of sight and up to 300 metres point to point, with longer ranges depending on obstacles, reflections and the RF environment.
With many manufacturers currently developing WiFi audio products, Neutrik have gained the strategic “first to market” position with a product that can connect any brand of audio equipment. This looks like the beginning of a revolution.
