Tascam has announced SB-16D 16-input/16-output Dante Enabled Stage Box.

Tascam SB-16D Dante Enabled Stage BoxThe SB-16D stagebox combines Dante networking with seamless integration with the new Tascam Sonicview Digital Recording and Mixing Consoles. Controllable by means of the Tascam IO Control app or via the new consoles, the SB-16D can be used as a floor stagebox or rackmounted, and multiple stageboxes can be used simultaneously in a Dante network.

The SB-16D can accommodate large ensembles and extensive installed Dante systems using the its 16 XLR mic/line inputs and 16 XLR line outputs. If further I/O capacity is required, multiple SB-16D stageboxes can be networked. Each input channel has +48V phantom power and an SIG OL LED for input-level monitoring. Additionally, each line output is equipped with SIG OL LEDs.

Two Dante ports equipped with etherCON Dante connectors enable redundant streams with robust connections. For additional system reliability, a DC power input is provided that allows a redundant power supply (not included).

As available in the Tascam Sonicview recording mixers, each SB-16D microphone input feeds a Tascam Class 1 HDIA (High-Definition Instrumentation Architecture) mic preamp. Thanks to an instrumentation amplifier with exceptional noise characteristics in the first stage, Class 1 HDIA microphone preamps achieve -128 dBu EIN, a high signal-to-noise and distortion ratio, and excellent frequency response. The mic inputs can accept up to +32dBu signals, providing plenty of headroom for sudden level increases.

As with Sonicview recording mixers, the SB-16D uses 32-bit analog-to-digital converters and a 96kHz sampling. During development, repeated internal and external evaluations were conducted to fine-tune the stagebox to achieve best-in-class sound.

When a SB-16D stagebox is connected to a Sonicview 16XP or 24XP recording mixer, microphone gain can be remotely controlled from the console, and all SB-16D I/O comes up on the Tascam Sonicview View touchscreens for hassle-free ease of use. In addition, the SB-16D is equipped with 8-input/8-output GPIOs, which expand to 16-input/16-output GPIOs when connected to a Sonicview recording mixer, facilitating parallel control.

In addition to its tight integration with Sonicview consoles, the SB-16D can also be controlled via the Tascam IO Control Remote Control App. Available for macOS, Windows, and iPadOS, users have complete control – regardless of whether the SB-16D is onstage, backstage, in a control room, or in an equipment closet.

The SB-16D be 3U rackmounted with the included brackets, which offer two angle options for mounting the jack panel on the front of the rack to take advantage of the SB-16D’s cable hole to conveniently and safely route connected cables in the rear.
