Product Description

Inputs and outputs wherever you need them.

The PreSonus NSB 16.8 networked stage box lets you put analog I/O for your StudioLive Series III digital mixer wherever you need it. Equipped with 16 digitally controlled XMAX mic preamps, 16 balanced line level inputs and 8 analog outputs, the NSB 16.8 integrates seamlessly into StudioLive Series III digital mixers with a single Ethernet connection. Remote control input trims, phantom power, and more, directly from your StudioLive Series III console or from UC Surface remote mixing software on your tablet or laptop.

Powerful connectivity that’s designed to be shared.

The NSB 16.8 networked stage box is loaded with 16 versatile locking combo jacks. Connect your microphones to the digitally controlled XMAX preamps or use the balanced 1/4" TRS inputs to connect your line level devices—the NSB 16.8 can handle it all. The inputs can be sent to any StudioLive Series III digital mixer on the network, and thanks to gain compensation, every mixer gets individual gain control without affecting the front-of-house mix.

Rugged stage box, flexible installation.

PreSonus built the NSB 16.8 inside a rugged steel chassis with sturdy handles designed to survive the rigors of the most demanding tours. The NSB 8.8 is also install-friendly: Just remove the handles and attach the optional rackmount kit, and your NSB 8.8 can be racked in your studio or backstage. For permanent installations, the NSB 8.8 is also compatible with stage pockets from Ace Backstage.

A complete networked solution.

StudioLive Series III networked products form an ecosystem that is easily expanded and quickly configured. Designed to enhance each other, these products are at the forefront of AVB networking technology. The NSB 16.8 can be used alone or with many other NSB-series stage boxes to add remote audio to one StudioLive Series III digital mixer or to multiple mixers on the same network. For StudioLive Series III mixers that have limited onboard analog I/O, the NSB 16.8 provides a simple expansion to a full 32- or 64-channel mixing system.
