DESIGNED FOR TV

Central role in a wireless Hi-Fi system

Designed with seamless TV integration and Bluetooth audio in mind, the SOUND HUB COMPACT has everything needed to play the central role in a completely wireless active stereo Hi-Fi system. It can handle a variety of wired digital and analogue sources, including HDMI eARC, and it pairs with Bluetooth audio devices such as smartphones, tablets, TVs, laptops and desktop computers. And with automatic input switching and intuitive source-based volume control, the SOUND HUB COMPACT is an invaluable part of any DALI EQUI system.

WIRELESS CONNECTION

Highly stable audio transmission

The wireless connection between the SOUND HUB COMPACT and DALI EQUI speakers like our OBERON C is highly stable and lossless, using a 24 bit/96 kHz connection. And with an input-to-speaker latency of under 15 ms, you don't need to worry about sync issues when watching movies. With the SOUND HUB COMPACT, DALI wireless active speakers can be placed up to 10 m away.

DIGITAL AUDIO

Flexible optical input

The SOUND HUB COMPACT features an optical S/PDIF input for CD players and other conventional digital audio sources equipped with a digital optical output. A second optical input enables compatible TVs to automatically turn the SOUND HUB COMPACT on so it's ready to fill the room with amazing wireless active Hi-Fi sound right away.

BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY

Supporting high performance AAC & aptx

Bluetooth connectivity is built right into the SOUND HUB COMPACT. Connect any audio source supporting Bluetooth and play music stored locally or via your favourite streaming service in seconds. The SOUND HUB COMPACT also supports AAC, aptX and aptX HD audio from compatible devices for impressive high-resolution audio playback up to 24 bit/48 kHz.

ANALOGUE SOURCES

Where tradition meets future

The SOUND HUB COMPACT's analogue input is where audiophile tradition meets the future of wireless active Hi-Fi. Using advanced analogue to digital conversion, the SOUND HUB COMPACT converts audio from sources like CD players, turntables and RIAA phono preamplifiers into a high resolution, better-than-CD quality, 24 bit/96 kHz stream for the best possible audio reproduction.

SUBWOOFER OUT

Delivering powerful low-end detail

The SOUND HUB COMPACT includes a volume-controlled, line-level analogue subwoofer output that switches on automatically when a subwoofer is detected. For seamless integration with the rest of the system, the output is low-pass filtered to match the frequency characteristics of the main speakers. Using the optional DALI WSR (Wireless Subwoofer Receiver), the SOUND HUB COMPACT can connect wirelessly to any active subwoofer for a full-range 2.1 stereo system.
