SonicIP is a feature of all Barix audio devices which at the start-up announces the device's IP address to the attached headphones/speakers. This is useful for the technician in the installation phase before the device gets a fixed IP address; e.g. when it is attached to a DHCP network for the first time after unpacking. Typically after the device is configured the SonicIP is switched off (disabled in the NETWORK settings) not to disturb the listeners in the operational environment if the device is eventually reset.
