DALI Sound Hub
The DALI Sound Hub is the brains behind your CALLISTO speaker system, streaming Hi-Res audio to your speakers and automatically switching between multiple sources. The Sound Hub brings true no-compromise convenience to music and movie lovers who demand more.
The DALI Sound Hub features an extended range of digital and analogue inputs combined with an auto source sensing system. The Sound Hub automatically activates the correct input the moment you start playing music or turn on your TV – so you can just sit back and enjoy exquisite audio.
The front-facing volume knob embeds an LED display, which combines Hi-Fi tradition with convenience. The LED display shows the current audio source as well as the volume level, and you can even adjust the light intensity of the display. This is supported by a light display on top of the Sound Hub, which indicates the location of the CALLISTO speakers in the pairing process.
We have made the setup simple, so you only have to worry about adjusting the volume, which can be done via a multitude of options. E.g. on the Sound Hub, by using the included Bluetooth remote, directly via the touch panels built atop of each speaker or via your smart device (depends on the brand).
WIRELESS AUDIO TRANSFER
The wireless connection between the Sound Hub and the speakers is an extremely stable digital connection, made on either the 2.4 GHz or the 5.8 GHz band depending on location and quality of the connection. The proprietary 30 bit protocol transfers an uncompressed I2S audio signal in 24 bit 96 kHz, utilising the remaining bits to control volume, speaker ID and other control data. Because it works on a less trafficked band, and the protocol is specially designed for transporting an audio signal, the connection is highly stable introducing next to no packet loss.
The protocol uses forward error correction to remove the result of packet loss should they occur. The high bandwidth low latency protocol functions as a point to multipoint connection. This allows for multiple speakers to connect to the same stereo signal. With latency below 25 ms, sync between video and audio from a movie or TV source is obtained well within conventionally acceptable limits.
