A Barix Exstreamer 500 will connect to an Icecast server just fine. We have an AAC stream for the newer Barix and an MP3 stream for the older Exstreamer 100 that won't receive AAC.

A question for the CRTech brain trust with experience in using the Barix 500 Exstreamer. 

 

I have been working with an FM Translator group located in the western U.S. in an attempt to return them to air after another FM Translator they were rebroadcasting in daisy-chain manner from a full power FM went silent. They are too distant from the originating FM to rebroadcast directly. Since the FM translator is in the NCE band, we are planning to purchase a Crown FM 30T Transmitter and feed audio to it from the Barix 500 Exstreamer set to the mother station’s MP3 listener IP stream at 64 Kbps.(The Barix unit was donated to the group for this purpose in an effort to help out this cash-starved group.)

 

I know the Barix 500 Exstreamer is designed to work with another unit to send and receive. But has anyone successfully used the Barix 500 Exstreamer as a receive-only stand-alone unit in a manner such as described above?

 

What were your experiences? Any suggestions for this type of application?

 

Thanks!
