The HEDD Bridge – Paving the Way toward Digital Connectivity in Studio Monitors


Today, a number of digital protocols have become established constants in various audio sectors. While they certainly exhibit different advantages, they all essentially focus on the transportation of audio signals (Audio-over-IP, AES3, Bluetooth, etc.). In order to secure an ideal – future-oriented, safe, and flexible – integration of our HEDD studio monitors in digitally based work-spaces, we developed our very own modular input-card system, the HEDD Bridge. The HEDD Bridge was inspired by the rather simple and yet absolutely vital idea that our speakers should feature a freely configurable system that, being located on the back panel of each monitor, allows for the integration of a digital audio protocol.


Currently we are offering the B1-Dante card for the HEDD Bridge. We are convinced that Ethernet-based multi-channel systems are the future of the studio, live music, and installation sector. While Audio-over-IP has by now become more and more prominent in mix-down, interface, and microphone technologies, this development has yet to reach the level of studio monitors. The HEDD Bridge is the first system to close this gap.


The B1-Dante enables your HEDD monitors to interact with today’s most established audio network protocol:

  You can directly connect your computer to loudspeakers via a CAT.6 Ethernet cable in order to stream high resolution audio

  In complex multi-channel setups (Dolby Atmos, Auro 3D etc.), multiple separate loudspeakers can be fed with a single high-resolution audio stream and each one of these speaker channels can be controlled individually by software control applications

  Audio devices in different rooms or facilities (e.g. movie theaters, conference rooms, live concerts and music festivals) can be controlled from one or multiple workspaces connected to the Ethernet network

  AoIP will enable broadcast engineers to simplify the in-house signal distribution in broadcast stations
