I have seen a "split box" that made it possible to split the chain to a star net instead of daisychaining. I haven't seen a price or a modelno though. This was at a genelec event so it was a real thing. Not a DIY

The protocol is for me unknown but ill guess its rs422/485. I it works fine to split except if you use really long cables and/or significant different length of them.
