Perfect Propagation of Digital Sound

Data transmission generally utilizes CAT5e cable, which offers the ability to carry uncompressed 24-bit / 48 kHz or 44.1 kHz high-quality sound over distances up to approximately 100 meters*. You can even activate the SB168-ES head amp remote function from the mixing console to adjust mic gain levels so that they match specific sound scenes. Coupled with the superior sonic quality of the head amps, this capability presents huge advantages for live performance.

* Depending on the type of cable used.

Using EtherSound for Digital Sound Propagation

The SB168-ES uses the well-known EtherSound technology. Of the digital audio signal transmission protocols currently available, EtherSound is highly regarded for its low latency, high-quality bidirectional multi-channel transmission capabilities, and its use of easily obtainable CAT5e cable. Moreover, EtherSound allows you to combine sound signals with control signals for the SB168-ES head amp remotes, or +48V function.

You can daisy chain connections through MY16-ES64 and MY16- EX mini-YGDAI cards to connect to a Yamaha digital console, which makes setting up easy anywhere – from up on stage to front of house. And since the SB168-ES is capable of operating as a generic EtherSound device, you can also use AuviTran’s AVS-ESMonitor to control its parameters.

Yamaha Reliability

Up to now, digital signal propagation systems were extremely expensive. The SB168-ES was designed from the outset to be used together with Yamaha digital consoles, making high performance affordable. It also features +48V, signal, and peak indicators for each input terminal, providing an excellent environment for active monitoring.
