Presonus NSB 16.8 16 x 8 AVB-Networked Stage Box

Designed to work seamlessly with PreSonus StudioLive Series III mixers, the PreSonus NSB 16.8 stage box offers 16 locking combo mic/line inputs with remote-controlled XMAX preamps that include gain compensation for shared input scenarios, as well as 16 direct inputs via AVB. All inputs can be controlled from a StudioLive Series III console and from free PreSonus UC Surface software.

All eight outputs employ locking XLR jacks, while the built-in 2-port AVB switch lets you daisy-chain multiple units. The rugged steel chassis with sturdy handles is designed with a stage box form factor and allows the NSB 16.8 to sit well on the stage and survive the rigors of on-the-road wear and tear. The unit can be rackmounted with an optional rack-ear kit.

A stage box is all about analog connectivity, and the NSB 16.8 gives you all the I/O you need and then some. You get 16 locking combo mic/line inputs equipped with our famous remote-controlled, Class A solid-state XMAX preamps, including gain compensation for shared input scenarios. All line inputs can be controlled from a StudioLive Series III console and from free PreSonus UC Surface software. All eight outputs employ locking XLR jacks. If that’s not enough, a built-in 2-port AVB switch lets you daisy-chain multiple units, giving you enough connections for even the largest shows and installations.

What is an AVB network?

Audio networking is much more than just a way to connect a digital snake. With an AVB network, you can connect digital audio devices over long distances using CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable and route your audio anywhere on the network with extremely low latency. AVB offers several unique benefits that make it a better choice for audio than other networking protocols. For example, AVB provides a high-precision clock that significantly reduces harmonic distortion and phasing, ensuring your audio stays clear and clean. AVB ensures you always have enough bandwidth to carry your low latency audio—even when your intern starts streaming a movie. These important benefits are an inherent part of AVB; you don’t need to do anything special to your devices or AVB switch. And you can only get them with AVB.
