Yamaha SB168-ES 16in/8out Ethersound Digital Stage Box

The SB168-ES is an affordable 3U-size stage box that utilizes EtherSound technology to propagate digital sound signals. When connected to popular all-in-one digital consoles like the PM5D, LS9, or M7CL, the SB168-ES offers superb support for live sound. 16 channels of sonically-superb remote analog input — each with its own head amp — combine with 8 channels of analog output to let you chain multiple units in sequence for simultaneous use. The SB168-ES also functions as both as a conventional EtherSound device — an analog input-output box. Compared to a conventional analog console + analog multicore the SB168-ES is noise resistant, and lets you boost quality by keeping the length of microphone cables as short as possible. Even more, the SB168-ES is easy to set up, so that any time, effort, or money needed for equipment installation are significantly reduced.
