What's in the Box
- Behringer S32 Digital Snake I/O Box
- Limited 1-Year Warranty, Extendable to 3-Years with Product Registration
This I/O box is designed with multiple scenarios in mind; it works equally well as a stand-alone pair for use with analog mixing consoles, or as part of the trio of a digital mixing solution along with the X32 digital mixer and P16 personal monitoring system. It is a 32-in and 16-out stage box that features AES50 networking with the Klark Teknik SuperMAC technology.
The 32 Midas-designed XLR inputs are fully programmable and remote controllable from the X32 digital mixer. The 16 balanced XLR outputs provide ample sends to the stage for mains and monitoring. The front panel offers indicators for phantom power and AES50 sync. Additionally, a Mute-All-Inputs button quietens all inputs when connecting an input cable.
The dual AES50 jacks allow transmission of all audio and MIDI data to the X32 FOH with a single Ethernet cable, and also allow up to two S32s to be cascaded for maximum channel count. In this scenario, 64 bi-directional audio channels at 24-bit / 48 kHz can be transferred on just one CAT5 line between the FOH console and the stage, including 48 analog inputs from stage, 32 analog outputs on stage, as well as the 16 Ultranet channels, MIDI data, and head amp remote control.
An additional Ultranet output provides 16 channels for use with the P16 Personal Monitoring System through the Ethernet cable, allowing each musician to dial in his or her own custom mix from the stage. A pair of ADAT ports can carry additional sends to the stage beyond the 16 analog outputs, or split the 16 inputs. Lastly, a USB jack allows for future firmware updates.
Stand-Alone Snake Mode
Although it was initially designed for use with the X32 digital console, any mixing board with AES50 networking capability can tap into this powerful feature set. So, if you happen to work on an analog mixing board occasionally, you could use two pairs of S32s and ADA8000s to form a high-performance, lightweight 16 x 16 digital snake, and all on one CAT5 connection, keeping the preamp remote control functionality.
Seamless Integration with P16 Personal Monitoring System
The Ultranet port on the S32 lets you connect directly to the optional P16 system, which provides an easy way to give your musicians and vocalists what they really want. The P16-M personal mixers let each performer take control of what they hear, allowing you to concentrate on providing the audience with the best possible listening experience. Fast and easy to set up, a basic system can be installed and configured in a matter of minutes, and the system can be expanded to adapt to changing needs.
Klark Teknik AES50
The Klark Teknik SuperMAC (AES50 compliant) technology gives the S32 its high-capacity digital interconnectivity with ultra-low latency operation, superbly simple deployment, and ease of use. The engineers worked hand-in-hand with product developers to ensure that the S32 meets or exceeds the requirements of live performance entertainers and their professional audio engineers. Some of the features are as follows:
The S32 is a versatile 32 x 16 digital stage box solution with many unique features. It is built tough to withstand the rigors of the road. It only takes up three rack spaces and connects to FOH with a single CAT5 cable. Now you can have the missing link between the stage and FOH at a fraction of the cost of competing systems.
