Specialising in small, compact networked amplifiers, Stewart Audio has confirmed a technology licensing agreement with Audinate to become one of the first licensees of Dante Ultimo. Under the agreement, Stewart Audio will release a Dante Ultimo option in its line of subcompact and half rack DSP powered amplifiers in Q2 of 2013.
‘We are working with Audinate as we continue to reposition Stewart Audio as a network-centric manufacture of power amplifiers and network accessories,’ says Sean O’Malley, President of Stewart Audio. ‘As the A/V ecosystem continues to evolve towards the network, our customers require end point products which operate with the increasing popular Dante protocol from Audinate’.
Stewart Audio’s product line of Dante enabled amplifiers will span one-to-four channel counts, both low impedance and 70V/100V and up to 320W/channel. Package sizes will consist of subcompact to half rack, all convection cooled.
‘Stewart Audio is developing a great line of innovative network amplifier products, and we welcome them as one our first Ultimo licensees,’ says Audinate Director of Sales, Dave Anderson. ’We are pleased to work with Stewart Audio in providing Dante as a complete networking solution for its industry-leading products.’
