WyreStorm HDBaseT Receiver with Integrated 2.1 Audio Amplifier (70m/230ft)

Categories:
Part Number AMP-001-010

The award-winning WyreStorm AMP-001-010 is a unique HDBaseT Class D digital audio amplifier with receiving and repeating functionality that fundamentally changes the way to approach the design of multi-room audio-visual systems.  

A feature rich and highly versatile product that simplifies, combines and improves the relationship between HDMI, HDBaseT and stereo audio for integrators, it incorporates 3:1 audio switching from centralized AV sources, ARC or local audio input, and can be used centrally, in-line or as a display device for one of the most flexible and powerful applications of HDBaseT technology to date.

Fully cascadable over multiple 70m/230ft distances up to 7 times using just a single Cat5e/6 cable, it combines HDMI / HDBaseT repeating, 2.1 audio amplification with sub-woofer and analogue stereo pre-outs and HD reception with bidirectional control of source/display/Amp via bidirectional IR and RS232, and so much more...

Capable of being used locally as a standalone amplifier and receiver or as part of a larger, cascaded distribution containing WyreStorm Presentation Switcher, Pro Plus HDBaseT matrix or full HDBaseT, the Amps are also capable of Power-over-HDBaseT passthrough up to 50m/164ft to PoH enabled display receivers to remove the need for additional mains power for the receiver at the display end.

The AMP-001-010 is the first product of its kind and represents our innate understanding and appreciation of the AV installation by continually pushing the boundaries of what's possible to offer innovative products that really add value to residential or commercial applications, whatever the size or budget.

Overview

It's never been easier to design and instal a large distributed HDMI AV system with local input at every location.

The AMP-001-010 combines networked AV, local audio input and 2x25w Class D amplification, with the distribution benefits of single wire HDBaseT. It can be used as a straightforward extender solution for single-source/single-display residential systems, or as part of a much more ambitious network for larger commercial systems, when partnered with one WyreStorm's Pro Plus multiple output Matrix devices.

At its most basic, the AMP-001-010 can extract stereo audio direct from the digital audio within the HDBaseT signal and amplify it locally, removing the need for any extra breakout boxes and converters. A single Cat5ei/6 cable is all that's required between the source and amplifier; the amp provides spring clip terminals for stereo speakers, a dedicated subwoofer output plus an HDMI feed for the display, all fully controllable via IR or RS232.

Typically, a simple residential system might consist of AV sources (set top box, media server etc) routed to the amplifier via a TX-70-PP HDBaseT transmitter; speakers and a subwoofer would be connected directly to the AMP-001-010. The ARC (Audio Return Channel) functionality of the amp allows audio from a connected Smart TV to be played into the system, giving the listener instant access to a multitude of streaming services. Personal audio can also be input via a 3.5mm auxiliary audio jack, if required. Should more amplification be needed in any particular zone, a larger amp can be hooked up using a pair of pre-outs, without sacrificing ARC, repeating, receiving and audio switching capabilities.

Additionally, the system can be expanded across a network. More WyreStorm HDBaseT amps can be added via a single Cat 5e/6cable, connecting to more speakers and displays, all being fed either from the same centralised AV input, or from individual local sources. Up to seven AMP-001-010 units can be added to single network, potentially covering a distance of 490m/1610ft with full HD video, amplified 2.1 audio and IR/RS-232 control.

For a larger commercial project, the AMP-001-010 could be added to the multiple outputs of an HDBaseT matrix switcher for a system containing up to 56 screens, spanning a distance of up to 3.9km/2.4miles.

This incredible flexibility not only sees the Amp equally as effective when used locally as a standalone amplifier and receiver but also part of a larger, cascaded distribution containing WyreStorm Presentation Switcher, Pro Plus HDBaseT matrix or full HDBaseT matrices.  Furthermore, as each unit is also capable of Power-over-HDBaseT passthrough up to 50m/164ft, Amps can be used together with PoH enabled matrices and display receivers to remove the need for additional mains power for the receiver at the display end whilst maintaining all the features of individual Amps in the distribution.

This incredible versatility, combined  its compact size means there are multiple installation options for the AMP-001-010. It can be located in a ceiling void and coupled to in-ceiling/in-wall speakers, wall-mounted next to a data plate, or even parked in a centralised rack with the matrix switcher and routed to each zone with conventional speaker cable and one Cat5e/6 cable.

How you use the AMP-001-010 is up to you.  The only limit is your imagination.
