IP audio and low cost are a powerful combo.
Axia Audio says its iQ console/routing system can help you get started with IP audio. The package includes control surface, DSP-based mixing engine, analog, AES and Livewire audio I/O, machine-control logic, Ethernet switch and optional backup power supply.
