The AMK DS61 is a Dante™ and AES67 enabled audio network addressable and self-amplified ceiling speaker system. The speaker is powered by PoE+ network switch meaning no external power supply is required.

The speaker includes a Class D amplifier which provides effective use of power. This system will solve the issue of having to provide a separate amplifier or I/O interface for speaker installations.

The system comes with 6.5” coaxial 25W loudspeaker driver, CX602, that has excellent dispersion, wide bandwidth and a smooth frequency response which makes this the top choice for today’s overhead commercial applications.

The system can be used in wide range of projects for paging and background music applications. The DS61 is ideal for hotels, education, hospitals, retail stores, performing art centers, restaurants, airports, houses of worship, and board rooms. The speaker system is UL 0243 listed.
