Product Description

Digital mixing has revolutionized virtually everything in the live- entertainment production workflow. The SD8 provides 8 MIDAS-designed remote-controllable mic preamps, 8 balanced analog XLR returns at the stage end, plus an integrated 2-port ULTRANET distribution hub for direct connection to Behringer’s P16-M personal monitor mixers – without any additional hardware required.

The SD8 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 SD8 at stage front and another behind the drum riser gives you an additional 8 inputs for drum and guitar/ bass amp mic’ing.

Behringer SD8 8-Channel Digital Snake Features

  • 8 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
  • 2-port ULTRANET distribution hub for powered connection of 2 BEHRINGER P16-M personal monitoring mixers
  • Digital audio and control connectivity for TURBOSOUND 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 SD8 Stage Boxes can be cascaded via the built-in AES50 ports to provide up to 24 bidirectional inputs and 24 balanced XLR outputs. An onboard ULTRANET distribution hub provides power and 16 channels of audio to 2 Behringer Powerplay P16-M personal monitor mixers per SD8, 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 SD8 also features a USB port for fast and easy system updates via your PC.

Remotely Controllable Preamps Make Setup a Breeze
The SD8 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 SD8 where you want it, run a few Cat 5e, mic and instrument cables – and head for the console. The SD8 makes setting the stage up virtually foolproof!

8 Servo-Balanced XLR Outputs
The SD8 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, SD8’s digital operation eliminates even the slightest possibility of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and crosstalk. You get ultra-pristine audio performance, no matter your application – something unheard of in this class!

ULTRANET – Seamless Integration
The world-renowned engineers at MIDAS, KLARK TEKNIK, 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.

ULTRANET effectuates a powerful digital eco-system that gives you unparalleled control over every element of your audio production environment from one convenient location.

KLARK TEKNIK AES50
KLARK TEKNIK SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) technology gives the SD8 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 SD8 meets, or exceeds, the requirements of live entertainers and their professional audio engineers.

Extreme Value
As you can see, the SD8 is an extremely versatile 8 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 SD8 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 – and we back it with a comprehensive warranty program.

This is amazing addition to X32 rack
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this thing! Been very happy with this little digital snake. It’s cost effective and adding 8 down / 8 back is perfect. Keeps runs on stage neat and tidy. I run a 10 piece band. We are in the road every weekend. The fact that these new digital snakes connect with one cat5 cable is truly a gas changer. No longer do you need to spend so much time plugging in large fanned out cables. Love it!

Amazing for micing drums
What is your opinion of this product?
Got this as additional inputs for my x32. most specifically for micing the drums. This little jewel sits on the riser and we plug in the cables. Then we have 8 channels for the drums that can be controlled on the x32. Just connect the ARS50 to the x32 and voila! 8 more inputs. Only issue I had was the phantom power for the overhead condensers. Found a youtube video that explained you have to uncheck the "lock AES device" and it worked like a charm. I highly recommend this item
