I actually use Barix for STL's and I
just set them to pick up my regular station AAC+ stream. At 48k,
they sound acceptable to broadcast and I don't have to push a
signal to them. If I had the money, I'd use Tielines everywhere,
but $350 for one extremer versus $3000 for a pair of Bridge-IT's
makes the Barix boxes a good choice. We have silence sensors on
them that reboot them if they go offline for more than 90 secs.

What Bill said. Exactly.
We're in the middle of looking at a backup IP path, and
considering codec options. We have a stack of Barix boxes lying
around from old projects, but I'm still hesitant to use them...
