Product Description

Digital mixing has revolutionized virtually everything in the live-entertainment production workflow. The SD16 provides 16 MIDAS-designed remote-controllable mic preamps, 8 balanced analog XLR returns at the stage end, plus an integrated 4-port ULTRANET distribution hub for direct connection to Behringer’s P16-M personal monitor mixers – without any additional hardware required.

The SD16 is extremely compact and comes with rugged protective bumpers, so you can toss them directly on stage wherever you need them. The best part – all it takes is a single Cat 5e cable per stage box. And 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 gives you an additional 16 inputs for drum and guitar/bass amp mic’ing.

Behringer SD16 16-Channel Digital Snake Features

  • 16 MIDAS-designed, fully programmable mic preamps for audiophile sound quality
  • 8 analog, servo-balanced XLR outputs
  • AES50 network ports featuring KLARK TEKNIK’s SuperMAC networking capability for ultra-low jitter and latency
  • 4-port ULTRANET distribution hub for powered connection of four BEHRINGER P16-M personal monitoring mixers
  • Digital audio and control connectivity for TURBOSOUND IQ speaker systems with ULTRANET networking capability
  • Rack ears and protection bumpers included for installed and mobile applications
  • Dual AES50 ports for cascading multiple units—no merger or router required
  • Up to 100 m networking capability via CAT-5e cable (not included)
  • USB connector for system updates via PC
  • Ultra-compact and roadworthy, all-steel chassis
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 – and 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.

Remotely Controllable Preamps Make Setup a Breeze
The SD16 Stage Box is a studio/live sound engineer’s dream come true. Setup is extremely easy, with virtually all parameter control taking place at the console – including the award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, +48 V phantom power, destination routing, etc. Just put the SD16 where you want it, run a few Cat 5e, mic and instrument cables – and head for the console. The SD16 makes setting the stage up virtually foolproof!

8 Servo-Balanced XLR Outputs
The SD16 features 8 XLR balanced outputs, allowing you to connect to your amp racks, active loudspeakers and monitors. Thanks to its reference-class Cirrus Logic 24-bit converters, SD16’s digital operation eliminates even the slightest possibility of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and crosstalk. You get ultra-pristine audio performance, no matter the application – something unheard of in this class!

KLARK TEKNIK SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) technology gives the SD16 its high-capacity, ultra-low latency digital interconnectivity, as well as superbly simple deployment and ease of use. KLARK TEKNIK engineers worked hand-in-hand with BEHRINGER to ensure the SD16 meets, or exceeds, the requirements of live entertainers and their professional audio engineers.

ULTRANET – Seamless Integration
The world-renowned engineers at KLARK TEKNIK, MIDAS, TURBOSOUND and BEHRINGER have all come together to create something truly innovative that will change your live and studio workflow forever – welcome to ULTRANET. This revolutionary technology seamlessly transmits up to 16 independent channels of 24-bit digital audio and control data via a single Cat 5e cable between compatible digital devices – including mixers, I/O stage boxes, powered loudspeakers and personal monitoring systems.

Advantages realized through ULTRANET digital networking, versus traditional analog methods, include: all audio signals are impervious to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI); signal crosstalk is eliminated, and ease of use translates directly into a significant amount of time saved during show setup or installation. And the SD16’s onboard ULTRANET distribution hub supplies phantom power over CAT5 directly to your P16-M Personal Monitoring Mixers, eliminating the need for external power adapters.

ULTRANET effectuates a powerful digital eco-system that gives you unparalleled ease of deployment, performance and control for BEHRINGER P16 Personal Monitoring Systems and Turbosound iQ Speaker Series.

Extreme Value
As you can see, the SD16 is an extremely versatile 16 x 8 digital stage box solution with remote-controllable MIDAS-designed mic preamps, KLARK TEKNIK’s AES50 connectivity and a wealth of other professional-grade features – all at a price anyone can afford! Built tough enough to withstand the rigors of the road, the SD16 connects to FOH with a single, inexpensive Cat 5e cable. Now you can have the missing link between the stage and FOH at a fraction of the cost of competing systems.

A Must Have For The X32 Rack
Product Rating
What is your opinion of this product?
I use a Rack version of an X32 for my Original Band's In Ear Rig as well as for my Cover Band as the main Mixer & In Ear Mixer. I really enjoy using this rack version of the X32, but I routinely struggle at gigs to get around nearby bass cabs & 4x12 stacks reach the back of the Rack to set up & adjust the cable inputs. So I finally checked out my options on AMS and found either an 8 channel or 16 channel Digital Snake. I bit the bullet and purchased the 16 channel snake and let me tell you this has been a god send to have. Now all I do at a gig is run one Ethercon cable to the back of the rack and then I'm done struggling with the rack the rest of the gig. The 16 channel option gives me the peace of mind to never have to worry about running out of Mic ins at a gig. The snake has also helped cut down on cable costs. Instead of needing 25ft cables for everything on stage, which aren’t cheap, now I can get away with 5-10fters saving me money on cables and saving me time rolling. I highly recommend this product to any gigging band!
