I am looking for an option to connect the S10/ Up2stream Pro V3 via a POE Injector. Unfortunately I can only find 5V 2a or 2,5a injectors. Can I use the 2a or 2,5a ones without damaging the S10/ Up2stream Pro V3?
The reason for using PoE is the reduction of structural wiring in my rack plus the option that I can powercylce via switch port.
Now imagine an amp board with li-ion battery mgmt and the ability to be powered and charge the batteries from a POE ethernet port on it. This would allow makers to add batteries to their speakers to sustain music “at volume” for a listening session. The board would then recharge the batteries with only a POE ethernet cable. Great for portable speakers, but also great for home speakers as well. No need to run power to the speaker location, and the advantage of a low latency/noise data connection.
Not investigated or invested in POE but very interested in finding a good battery solution. I certainly get you point about having a clean DC Signal running around the house. Maybe POE is the best way ?
Two examples on Forum where battery power is or will be used.
