Sending TV audio from MHUB to in-wall or ceiling speakers using MHUB PRO 2.0 and MHUB AUDIO
Extracting video audio from MHUB and sending it to speakers
Today’s TVs are very thin with the latest models able to be rolled away into a box! A thinner TV is lighter, easier to install and generally more pleasing to the eye as these new advancements can radically change how your traditional TV looks or is installed into your property.
These advancements have reduced the space inside the TV to an absolute minimum and often a causality of this is the internal TV speaker. Speakers are either located on the rear of the panel (leading to muffled audio) or underneath and in many cases can not provide the type of audio amplification to match the large screen sizes found in the marketplace today.
Soundbars have plugged the gap, but they aren’t the solution.
Soundbars have plugged this gap as customers try to achieve audio reproduction that matches their picture quality. Whilst a soundbar is a simple solution to the problem it fair to say that it doesn’t present itself as the most elegant in that it’s additional (visible) hardware that you need to add to your AV setup. The soundbar is also tied to the function of the TV; so it’s not very easy to listen to music on the same device, for example.
De-embed the audio and manage it separately.
Using MHUB it’s possible to extract the audio that would be sent to your TV – or even the audio generated from your TV apps like Disney+ or Netflix and send that to speakers in your room. Additionally, when the TV is off you can listen to music on the same speakers. If your speakers are embedded in your walls or are in the ceiling then you won’t even notice them, but you’ll hear the difference.

MHUB PRO 2.0 + MHUB AUDIO: how does it work
To achieve this you will need to use MHUB PRO 2.0 and MHUB AUDIO operating together as one system which we call V&A (video & audio).
The MHUB PRO 2.0 can de-embed the audio from any video stream or TV app (using ARC) and downmix it into 2 channel stereo. This audio is then fed into the inputs on MHUB AUDIO which manages amplification of that audio. If you have inputs that require amplification then you can stack another MHUB AUDIO (up to three times using uControl) or as many as you want if you’re using a control system.
