PHOENIX AUDIO DUET EXECUTIVE
Phoenix Audio's Duet is a best-in-class speakerphone for the desktop voip user and road warrior. It is the primary audio interface for the mobile workforce, dependent on voip for communication.
The Duet generates clear communication through proprietary Acoustic Echo Cancellation, Line Echo Cancellation, Noise Suppressiona and equalizer algorithms embedded within the product. The Duet provides 360 degree room coverage so more than one person can participate in an online conference, Headset-Free and Handset-Free. Loudspeaker output (always a problem with laptops) is sufficient for larger offices and even medium sized conference rooms.
The Duet can be utilized in a number of configurations. In its most simple, a USB interface to the PC powers the speakerphone. More sophisticated options include connecting Duet to IP Phones, POTS and even cellphones through available headset connections. Duet connectivity to any of these phones and the PC gives users the advantage of conferencing voip callers together with standard callers. Last, users have the option of connecting their headset to the Duet for private communication, such as required in IP call centers or public spaces.
The Duet enhances the user experience with many PC applications: VOIP, softphone, web conferencing, distant learning, instant messaging, sound recording, telemedicine, etc. Furthermore, the Duet can improve your telephone's or cellphone's speakerphone performance as well.
Lightweight and sleek design, the Duet has redefined the standard in speakerphones for the desktop and revolutionized audio performance for laptops on the road.

Bridging - The Duet Executive will bridge the USB and RJ connections together for a three way call. An example would be if you were on a Software video call and wanted to bring in a participant who might be at the airport and would like to contribute to the meeting. You would call him or her on the telephone that is connected to the Duet Executive and it would bridge that person's audio in to the video call. You could also make the call to a bridging service so multiple people would be connected to the video call.

What is the difference between the DUET EXECUTIVE and DUET PCS? There are two main differences between the products: 1. The DUET PCS includes a USB connection to your PC or MAC computer. Whereas the DUET EXECUTIVE comes with USB, 2.5mm and RJ connections allowing you to connect to digital, analog, and cellular phones. 2. The DUET EXECUTIVE is expandable. Multiple Executives can be connected together (via the MT221 cable) to create larger room coverage on a budget. The DUET PCS does not have this capability. 3. The Duet Executive has a custome gain/sensitivity adjustment. A two – two position DIP switch next to the RJ jack allows you to adjust the send level to the telephone which varies from phone to phone, thus optimizing the Executive for use with all phones.
Will the ganging of Duets lower the input quality? Will it increase the risk of feedback loops? No, there is no degradation in the quality of the microphone pickup and/or the quality of the echo canceller.
How is the ganging connection made between two DUET EXECUTIVE units? Ganging requires two elements: (1) a RJ11 -> 2.5mm cable, like the one supplied with each Duet and used for cellular phone connection; (2) a 3.5mm plug (we call it a Dummy Plug). This plug could be a stereo 3.5mm like the one used for power speakers, headphones and such.
In order to gang two Duet together follow these steps: 1) Connect Duet #1 to your communication link (PC, telephone, or both). 2) Take the RJ11-> 2.5mm cable, plug the 2.5mm side of the cable into Duet #1 and the RJ11 side to Duet #2. 3) Plug the Dummy Plug into Duet #1's 3.5mm jack. 4) Power Duet #2 using the supplied power supply (you can also power it from the USB)
What distance does one DUET EXECUTIVE cover? The DUET EXECUTIVE will cover approximately 5-6 ft. in all directions.
