• Symetrix Introduces xIO Dante-Enabled Bluetooth Endpoint

    Symetrix is introducing the xIO Bluetooth; the first Dante-enabled Bluetooth endpoint available in a single gang form factor.

    "Using a modern, full-featured Bluetooth 5.0 chipset allows the xIO Bluetooth to offer extended range, a stable connection, and world-class audio quality", according to Symetrix. Available in both US and EU form factors, the xIO Bluetooth has a clean design and is compatible with standard single gang US wall boxes with Decora faceplates, as well as EU/UK standard wall boxes.

    IP control and PoE power simplify installation by allowing a single cable connection from the xIO Bluetooth to a PoE enabled network switch. The xIO Bluetooth may be configured to allow media-only connectivity, phone bridge connectivity, or both. All aspects of xIO Bluetooth control can be controlled using Symetrix remotes, SymVue panels, or third-party control systems.

    The xIO Bluetooth is a fully integrated member of the Symetrix xIO family of Dante endpoints allowing full control and configuration of the device, including Dante routing, from within Symetrix Composer software. All aspects of the xIO Bluetooth are fully configurable including the Bluetooth friendly device name, Dante channel names, connect/reconnect functionality, and security.

    The xIO Bluetooth will begin shipping in Q3.

    Y-cables, looping audio signals through

    This article will explain loop-though connections and "y-cables" for analog audio signals.

    To obtain one or more copies of a signal (for example, to distribute the signal from a mixer to various self-powered speakers or power amplifiers) we use parallel connections. To do this we simply connect each terminal (pin) of the connectors in parallel. That is, 1 to 1, 2 to 2 and 3 to 3 (or tip to tip, ring to ring and sleeve to sleeve in a TRS connector). When we split a signal in two in this way, we refer to a "Y-cable" or "Y" connection, since the division of a signal in two looks like letter "y". Contrary to what it may seem, a y-cable is not a technically incorrect solution, but a correct way of splitting the audio signal. In fact, when a self-powered loudspeaker system or one channel of...
