The benefits of opting for PoE in streaming speakers

PoE (Power over ethernet) enabled speakers are powered by one wire that carries both data and power over a single Cat5e or Cat6 cable, allowing for ease and flexibility of speaker placement.

Key advantages of PoE technology

Image descriptionFlexibility – place multiple PoE network active loudspeakers anywhere in a commercial installation, without the need for tethering them to a power outlet.



Network Stability – be equipped with a stable network connection to support the playback of high-quality, undistorted audio and music streaming with a PoE connection. Connecting via ethernet eliminates unwanted dropouts and ensures streaming stability.

Cost-Efficiency – without the need for installing an AC mains receptacle, save big on extraneous costs especially for multi-channel surround systems.



Simplicity – a music streamer is integrated into each PoE speaker, allowing for grouping/zone flexibility. An easy setup and connection process takes away complicated cable runs.
