UNIKA was founded in 1985 by Mr. K.C.HWA, who is an audio engineer.
At that time, it was the heyday of Taiwan’s electronics industry. Mr. HWA saw that most of the professional audio R&D and OEM were controlled by Japan and South Korea. It is believed that Taiwan - which is among the world’s top electronic R&D and manufacturing base - should have the commitment of manufacturers to compete with Japan and South Korea.
After more than 30 years, UNIKA has become a well-known professional audio factory. The R&D and production team’s ability is also among the best in Taiwan, and the products developed and manufactured are deeply respected by foreign brand customers.
Committed to high quality, UNiKA uses only the best components and materials for our products, products renowned worldwide for integrity in design, technical excellence and durability. This has earned UNiKA respect and trust as a manufacturer of high quality products to many of the world’s leading audio companies.
Since 2015, UNIKA has joined the ranks of AoIP and established an excellent R&D team. It has successively launched various standard Dante-compatible products and has become an Audinate certified manufacturer.
Networked Audio Transceiver
The NBB-0202 adopts Audinate Dante networking technology for audio transceiving, and is very network friendly with unlimited flexibility in topology of deployment. It supports up to Layer 3 of IEEE 802.3 network standard, enabling you to organize your audio network with the on-the-shelf Ethernet switches or to immediately transport streaming audio by taking advantage of your existing installed network facility with no hassle. Even better, every NBB-0202 comes with two Ethernet ports which allow you to physically cascade several NBB-0202s in the same network link. Accompanying with Ethernet switches, this capability helps NBB-0202 gaining flexibility and expanding territory in device deployment in audio networking.
Audio routing among each NBB-0202 and all the other Dante-enabled devices is configured via computer with dedicated Dante Controller software which is available free from Audinate website. With Dante Virtual Soundcard software, you are even able to have your DAW software direct record/play stereo streaming audio from/to NBB-0202.
The audio input/output interfaces of NBB-0202 are fully met the requirement of professional audio industrial. Audio is encoded/decoded with the latest and uncompressed 24-bit PCM encoder/decoder with sample rate in 44.1KHz, 48KHz, or 96KHz. The NBB-0202 outputs are peculiarly buffered with amplifiers of high-rail-voltage which can drive the lines up to 24dBu. Besides the high-level of drive capability, the output of NBB-0202 can also be attenuated to meet the narrower reception range of inputs of some semi-professional devices. Both inputs of NBB-0202 accept signal of level from mic to line with individual gain and phantom power control. The NBB-0202 is also equipped with a pair of clip indicators for both the inputs to warn audio technician any signal overload on inputs.
The NBB-0202 is assembled in a sturdy metal chassis with elegant style of front panel. A set of rackmount kit is included in the package so that you can mount the NBB-0202 in standard 19″ rack.
