SoundTube’s STNet IPD-Hub 2 DSP Amplifier Receives UL 2043 Certification for Use in Plenum Spaces

Certified amps are ready for global shipping


Lenexa, Kan. – Dec. 16, 2020 –
MSE Audio announces the UL 2043 certification of the SoundTube IPD-Hub 2 Amplifier for use in plenum spaces.

SoundTube’s IPD-Hub 2 Amplifier is a 2-channel Dante amp with DSP built in. The amp is AES67 compatible and powered by PoE, PoE+ or 40W PoE. It includes an RJ45 Ethernet connection and can be used with Radio Design Labs Format A (RDL) or Attero Tech Axiom line level, mic level, balanced XLR or Bluetooth input devices – stereo or mono, virtually any type of input.  

With the IPD-Hub 2 Amplifier, integrators can create a complete Dante-enabled audio system using SoundTube RVC-1 controls without using a traditional DSP. Using a decentralized DSP amplifier in each zone rather than a centralized DSP greatly reduces hardware costs making an IPD-HUB 2 networked audio system about the same price as a conventional 70/100V distributed audio system.

“Giving integrators the option to install the IPD-Hub 2 Amplifier in the ceiling simplifies installation in many situations. The amp can go right into the ceiling with the speakers greatly reducing install time,” said Ken Hecht, Vice President. “We continuously seek ways to help our integrators and receiving this UL certification is an example of that commitment.”

Ideal for small to medium-sized applications, including bars, restaurants, hospitality, education facilities and more, the IPD-Hub 2 DSP amplifier is the heart of a complete networked audio system. Local and Dante-inputs with simplified network control allow the IPD-Hub 2 to address the network requirements for commercial audio connectivity. The IPD-Hub 2 includes two RJ-45, one Dante and one local input, and a two-channel speaker output for flexible audio distribution.
