Audio Authority Releases FlexPort Transmitters

March 18, 2013
Audio Authority has released its new FlexPort Transmitters, offering even more options for integrating remote sources with the SonaFlex system.

The SonaFlex SF-16M is an audio system featuring Burr-Brown A to D converters, dual toroidal transformers, and a suite of powerful DSP options. It accepts 8 stereo or 16 mono source inputs; however, when you add FlexPort Transmitters you can expand the input capacity to 10 stereo or 20 mono inputs.

Four different FlexPort models are available allowing users to connect a variety of sources to the SonaFlex. FlexPorts can accommodate optical, coax digital, analog RCA, XLR, and balanced line sources. FlexPorts provide a simple and convenient way to connect and listen to an MP3 player, streaming device, microphone or mixer, or any local source with the push of a button.

In a product release, Audio Authority describes the following example scenario to illustrate the FlexPorts capabilities: "So, you have an AppleTV and you want it connected directly to the TV, but you also want it available as an audio source for the house audio system. You need a SonaFlex with the optional FPM-D FlexPort module. This setup will allow your AppleTV to be connected directly to the TV and the SonaFlex via the FPM-D transmitter. Now you can watch the AppleTV with sound from the TV speakers, and/or from the zone speakers connected to the SF-16M in the rack via the FPM-D in the zone. As an added bonus this set up allows the AppleTV to function as a connected source to the SF-16M, making it a great way to stream music from your iPhone or iPad via AirPlay from anywhere in the house to any or all rooms in the house."
