Digital Stage Boxes are the modern upgrade of an analogue XLR multicore snake, allowing you to run every channel on stage to your front of house mixing desk position via a single CAT-6 cable for processing and mixing. Some of our sales stock of digital stage boxes can also be used as stand alone digital rack mixers that be controlled via a tablet or computer so there would e no use for a FOH mixing position. Digital stage boxes start of with 8 input channels up to 64 channels depending on the mixing desk and stage box IO options.
Advantages of using digital stage boxes:
- Running all of the audio through a CAT-6 cable drum is a huge time and effort saver when setting up live shows compared to an analogue snake.
- Some stage boxes can be daisy chained to another via CAT-6 to expand the ins and outs and allow for different stage box positioning on stage.
- Soft patching on the digital I/O allows you to easily change where channels are assigned without manually unplugging an XLR and moving it to a new input
