Soundcraft Mini Stagebox 16
The Soundcraft Mini Stagebox 16 is just 2U high (3.5”) and provides 16 analogue inputs and eight line outputs making a 16 x 8 matrix. The Mini Stagebox 16 connects via a single port Cat5 MADI card. The Mini Stagebox 16 comes supplied with the stagebox card installed and the corresponding card for an Si series console included (Vi console MADI cards sold separately).
The Mini Stagebox range provides a simple low cost solution to provide I/O expansion for Soundcraft’s Si Expression, Si Compact and Si Performer consoles, as well as the larger models including Si1+, Si2+, Si3+, Vi1, Vi2, Vi4 and Vi6.
Unlike stagebox systems from some other manufacturers, these supplement the I/O on the console, meaning that the input and output connections to the console are actually increased rather than just moved to the stage, so that the console’s local I/O is still available.
The Mini Stagebox models contain an integral PSU so are completely self-contained.
