Soundcraft Mini Stagebox 16
The new Mini Stagebox range (prices TBA) from Harman’s Soundcraft provides a simple solution to stage connectivity offering a lower-cost option for many systems where the modularity and configurability of the larger systems are not required. The new units are part of the ViSi Connect range of interface options for all Soundcraft mixing consoles, which includes the Compact and Vi Stageboxes and a range of option cards such as MADI, AES, CobraNet and AES.
The Mini Stagebox 32 (3U) provides 32 analog inputs and eight analog line outputs, with four pairs of AES outputs, for a total I/O capacity of 32 inputs and 16 outputs. The Mini Stagebox 16 (2U) model has 16 analog inputs and eight line outputs, making a 16x8 matrix. Both units connect to any of the Soundcraft Si Expression, Si Compact, Si Performer, Si Series and Vi Series consoles via a MADI card fitted to the option card slot.
The Mini Stagebox models contain an integral PSU, so are completely self-contained and sit comfortably stage-side.
