I spent quite a while one Saturday afternoon trying to connect to an AAC stream with a Barix. Then I read the fine print on the Barix website. If it does not have the AAC sticker on the bottom, it won’t do AAC. Old Exstreamers are out for AAC.
BTW, I saw at the NAB show that Barix has a new encoder box that will encode ACC as well. I don’t recall what it was called.

Subject: [CRTech] Barix Upgrade
Speaking of Barix codecs, is there any way to upgrade an older box to make it able to decode an AAC+ stream? I tried a firmware update, but it did no good.
