The Inovonics 660 INOmini DAB+ Monitor/Receiver provides off-air reception of all standard DAB & DAB+ broadcasts in a compact INOmini package.


The 660 tunes to all of Band III, conforming to worldwide standards and meeting a particular need for monitoring digital broadcasts off-air. The 660 has an easy set-up using the LCD screen with jog-wheel navigation of the menu tree. The front-panel displays the most-essential DAB and DAB+ PAD (Program Associated Data) information.


Alarms for Carrier Loss, Digital Program Loss, and Audio Loss are provided on the LCD front-panel and rear-panel tallies. The 660 has Analog L/R and AES-digital program line outputs.


The compact 1/3-rack-size unit integrates with other Inovonics INOmini products, including RDS encoders and decoders, AM/FM/HD-Radio confidence monitors with IP control and streaming audio, and other economic problem-solvers for broadcasters.
