PreSonus Expands StudioLive AVB Ecosystem with NSB-series Stage Boxes

Baton Rouge, Louisiana—January 2018… Designed to work seamlessly with PreSonus® StudioLive® Series III mixers/recorders, the new PreSonus NSB 16.8 and 8.8 AVB-networked stage boxes deliver signals from stage to console over a lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable. Among other benefits, this eliminates the need for a heavy, expensive copper snake—and the signal degradation that goes with long analog cable runs.
.
You can remote control the NSB series’ inputs, preamps, and phantom power from a networked Series III console or from free PreSonus UC Surface touch-control software.
A stage box is all about analog connectivity, and the NSB 16.8 and NSB 8.8 give you plenty.
.
The 16×8 NSB 16.8 offers 16 locking combo mic/line inputs equipped with PreSonus’ remote-controlled, Class A solid-state XMAX preamps, including gain compensation for shared input scenarios. The 8×8 NSB 8.8 offers eight of these mic/line inputs. Both models provide eight outputs with locking XLR jacks. A built-in two-port AVB switch lets you daisy-chain multiple units, or use the PreSonus SW5E AVB switch to support larger shows and installations.
.
Even if you baby your equipment, your stage boxes are likely to take a beating, especially on extended tours. But no matter how demanding the conditions, stage box failure is not an option. So NSB-series stage boxes come in a rugged steel chassis designed to survive the rigors of the road and are equipped with sturdy handles. Their classic stage box form factors allow NSB-series stage boxes to sit well on the stage, or they can be rack mounted with an optional rack-ear kit. Both models also are compatible with stage pockets from Ace Backstage.

PreSonus NSB 16.8 and NSB 8.8 stage boxes in the Philippines will be announced as soon as possible.
