A perfect partner for StudioLive Series III consoles
Designed to work seamlessly with PreSonus StudioLive Series III console/recorders, the PreSonus NSB 8.8 is an 8-in, 8-out stage box that sets up quickly and easily to route signals from stage to mixer over an AVB network. With AVB networking, all signals flow through one lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for a heavy, expensive copper snake—and the signal degradation that goes with long analog cable runs.
You can even remote control the NSB 8.8’s inputs, preamps, and phantom power from your networked Series III console or from free PreSonus UC Surface touch-control software.Making connections—lots of them
A stage box is all about analog connectivity, and the NSB 8.8 gives you plenty. You get eight locking combo mic/line inputs equipped with our famous remote-controlled, Class A solid-state XMAX preamps, including gain compensation for shared input scenarios. All line inputs can be controlled from a StudioLive Series III console and from free PreSonus UC Surface software.
All eight outputs employ locking XLR jacks. If that’s not enough, a built-in 2-port AVB switch lets you daisy-chain multiple units, giving you enough connections for even the largest shows and installations.Tough enough for the most demanding tours
Even if you baby your equipment, your stage boxes are likely to take a beating, especially on extended tours. But no matter how demanding the conditions, stage box failure is not an option. So we built the NSB 8.8 into a rugged steel chassis designed to survive the rigors of the road, and we equipped it with sturdy handles. Its classic stage box form factor allows the NSB 8.8 to sit well on the stage, or it can be rack mounted with an optional rack-ear kit. The NSB 8.8 also is compatible with stage pockets from Ace Backstage.Everything you need...and then some!
