The best part, all it takes is a single Cat 5e cable per stage box. If you need more inputs, or just want to keep your cable runs short and tidy, putting an SD16 at stage front and another behind the drum riser giving you an additional 16 inputs for drum and guitar/bass amp mic'ing.
When used as part of a complete X32 system, as many as three SD16 Stage Boxes can be cascaded via the built-in AES50 ports to provide up to 48 bidirectional inputs and 24 balanced XLR outputs. An onboard Ultranet distribution hub provides power and 16 channels of audio to 4 Behringer Powerplay P16-M personal monitor mixers per SD16, all via inexpensive Cat 5e cabling without any additional hardware. Two of the programmable inputs are also compatible with Hi-Z sources, so you can connect keyboards, acoustic and bass guitars, etc. With no DI box required. The SD16 also features a USB port for fast and easy system updates via your PC.MIDAS - The Legend in Sound Quality Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles.
