DB9009-RX – Advanced IP Audio Decoder

Top quality IP Audio Solution

DEVA Broadcast DB9009-RX is our second-generation Advanced IP Audio Decoder. This new addition to DEVA Broadcasting Tools is affordable. It is also easy to use. But it furnishes more features than ever before.

The powerful DSP processor allows accomplishing the decoding process in real time. Supporting all the mandatory for this high-class equipment HE-AAC versions 1 and 2, MPEG-1 Layer 3 compressed audio streams, and lossless uncompressed PCM stream, the DEVA Broadcast DB9009-RX is excellent for a wide range of professional audio applications: Broadcast, Internet Radio, Studio to Transmitter Link and VoIP.

This sophisticated device is also available in a version with a fully digital, DSP-based Stereo & RDS Encoder Module. The Encoder Module utilizes 2(or 3) outputs. The first one is for the MPX. The second is for the RDS or Pilot. Through the RS-232 port, this device transforms from an Ethernet to a serial Redirector. Thus, it quickens the integration of the existing audio systems to the Internet.

Though, this cost-effective, yet highly professional device impresses with its new custom-made laser-cut aluminum sheet case, OLED Graphical Display, and Intuitive Navigation Menu. The easy-to-read display and navigation menu allows easy status monitoring of the audio levels (visualized in bar graphs), connection information, and configuration. The Soft Buttons indicators placed on the bottom side of the OLED display ease navigation through the menus. It provides quick access to the parameters, modes, and functions and for altering their values.

Backup Sources

Utilizing several types of Backup sources, DEVA Broadcast DB9009-RX immediately switches between the sources (IP Audio Client, Icecast Source Client Injection, RTP, MP3 Player) and returns to the main one. Users do not need to intervene when the audio is restored. Depending on your needs, the sequence of the backup audio sources can be easily changed. You can record the audio content for the MP3 player on the internal 2GB SD card. One can manage the backup files remotely through the built-in FTP Server, using any FTP client.

Yet another impressive addition to DEVA Broadcast DB9009-RX features is the low latency Real-Time Protocol (RTP) connection support. Fully compatible with any online radio system, including the Icecast and Shoutcast, this affordable device is the perfect sound solution for long-distance audio transfer, for both wired and wireless networks.

It provides a top-quality signal over public IP networks and even connections behind NATs and Firewalls. DEVA Broadcast DB9009-RX delivers undeviating audio unaffected by the non-persistent network conditions and without the need for user interference.
