DEVA DB9000-RX (Used)

DEVA Broadcast DB9000-RX is a professional and highly reliable IP to Audio decoder. Also, it comes with an HTML5-based web server for device management and Ethernet to an RS-232 Redirector. Hence, it enables quick integration of the existing audio systems to the Internet. The device is available with an optional fully digital, DSP-based Stereo & RDS Encoder Module.

It supports this high-class equipment HE-AAC versions 1 and 2, MPEG-1 Layer 3 compressed audio streams, and PCM uncompressed streams. The DEVA Broadcast DB9000-RX is good for a scope of professional audio applications: Broadcast, Internet Radio, Studio to Transmitter Link, and VoIP.

The powerful DSP processor and either digital or analog output signals allow for the decoding process to be accomplished in real-time which makes the device compatible with any online radio system, including Icecast and Shoutcast. Another impressive addition to DB9000-RX features is the low latency Real Time Protocol (RTP) connection support.

Moreover, it comes along with its main IP audio source. DEVA Broadcast DB9000-RX comes with several IP audio sources. It has a built-in MP3/AAC Backup Audio Player for higher stability. Furthermore, the device has a built-in FTP server and 2GB SD card where the audio content for the MP3 Player is recorded. You can manage the backup audio files anytime remotely via any FTP client.

If the audio signal of the main source disappears, the device will switch to the first available IP audio backup source. However, If none of the audio backups are available, then the MP3 Player starts. But when it recovers the main audio signal, DB9000-RX will automatically switch back to it. Depending on your needs, one can change the sequence of the backup audio sources.

The optional digital, DSP-based Stereo & Dynamic RDS Encoder module is a dedicated extension of DB9000-RX. The Encoder Module utilizes one MPX or MPX+RDS output and one RDS or 19kHz Pilot output.


1. Audio Transmission over IP-based networks (DB9000-TX or DB90-TX is required at the opposite site)

2. Audio Transmission over IP-based Point-to-Point Wireless Link

3. MultiPoint Audio Transmission over IP-based networks

4. Low delay Real time Audio Transmission

In line with the latest technology, one or more DB9000-RX devices in combination with an encoder, (such as DB9000-TX and DB90-TX, for an instance) offer a full sound solution for long distance wireless needs.
