Klein + Hummel Introduces Digital Audio Distribution System

The new K8 digital audio distribution system from Klein + Hummel, being introduced at NSCA, is ideal for transporting professional quality audio across a facility. It can be used for simple point-to-point connections, or can form a distribution backbone for sending up to 16 audio channels to multiple remote locations.

The advantage of the K8 system is that it carries 16 channels of uncompressed digital audio over a standard category-5 cable, at a rate of 48kHz, with a depth of 24 bits, and a total latency of less than 1 millisecond. The same cable also carries bi-directional data for remote monitoring and control of all devices connected within the K8 system over a single Ethernet port. Cable lengths may be run up to a total of 200 meters through passively daisy-chained K8 devices. Actively refreshing the line with a K8 distribution amplifier allows endless additions of 200 meter cable lengths and adds less than 1 ms of delay. For advanced applications, multi-output K8 distribution amplifiers may be used to implement a star distribution configuration and the entire system may be monitored from a single Ethernet port with no additional cabling.

“Our professional audio system products are designed to provide advantages to the system designer by offering a balance between open architecture and proprietary technologies,” said Dave Theis, product manager for installed sound products, Klein + Hummel. “For example, industry standard Ethersound audio networking technology is utilized as the core system backbone, while the K8 system is used as a branch distribution architecture.”

“This is perfect technology for many systems such as large paging applications, multiple remote amplifier designs, or remote powered loudspeaker clusters”, said David McNutt, installed sound industry team manager for Sennheiser, the parent company of Klein + Hummel. “Anyone interested in helping to design new products and applications for this exciting new product series will have a great time visiting with us at Sennheiser Booth 128 at NSCA. There’s so much more to come from this company.”

Klein + Hummel is a Sennheiser Group company. Its products are distributed exclusively in the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean by Sennheiser Electronic Corporation.
