Neets Audio Preamplifier

Network Controlled Audio Preamplifier with PoE


Neets Audio Preamplifier is a network controlled audio preamplifier controlled through LAN or RS-232.

The Preamplifier adds additional RS-232 and I/O ports for expansion of the AV system and integrates with Neets and 3rd party control systems.

The USB audio input enables direct audio input and volume control from a computer (PC or Mac). The Preamplifier can be powered by Power over Ethernet or the included 12V PSU.

  • 4 unbalanced stereo inputs
    Unbalanced stereo audio input for line input on RCA connectors
  • 1 Balanced stereo audio output
    Stereo balanced or single ended line level output on terminal blocks
  • USB audio
    Provides audio playback and volume control on connected PC or Mac
  • Power over Ethernet
    Power can be supplied through PoE
  • 1 LAN port
    Enables control of the amplifier and adds two extra RS-232 ports for expansion of the control system
  • 2 Bi-directional RS-232 ports
    Used for control or expanding the AV system with more devices
  • 4 General Purpose I/O ports
    Used for extra input/output ports for control of relays, switches and sensors.
  • Auto power function
    Powers on when signal is detected, and enter sleep-mode automatically after 15 minutes without signal
  • 12V DC power in/out
    When powered by PoE the 12V DC output supplies power for external devices such as control system. When not powered by PoE the included 12V PSU can be used for power input
  • Input 1 Mix function
    Possible to set Input 1 as an input, that mixes with the current selected input.
  • 3 band equalizer
    Works as an active filter for bass, mid and treble
  • LED indicators on the front
    Convenient located on the front for easy performance indication
  • Easy mounting
    Can be mounted in trunking systems, hidden or in 1RU using the Neets Rack Shelf
  • Configuration
    Configuration takes place via USB or LAN using a built-in configuration area that fully integrates with Neets Project Designer
