Tascam SB-16D





Offering the same performance and hardware quality as TASCAM Sonicview recording and live mixers, TASCAM SB-16D Dante-networked 16-in/16-out stage boxes offer all the advantages of Dante networking, combined with seamless integration with TASCAM Sonicview recording mixers. The stage boxes can be used as a floor stage box or rack mounted, and multiple stage boxes can be used simultaneously in a Dante network.

When a SB-16D stage box is connected to a TASCAM Sonicview 16XP or 24XP recording mixer, microphone gain can be remotely controlled from the mixing console, and all SB-16D I/O comes up on the TASCAM Sonicview VIEW touch screens for hassle-free ease of use.

Easily accommodate large ensembles and extensive installed Dante systems using the SB-16D's 16 XLR mic/line inputs and 16 XLR line outputs. Need more I/O? Simply network multiple SB-16Ds. The mic/line inputs are extremely quiet, achieving a -128 dBu EIN with a +32 dBu maximum input level. Each input channel has +48V phantom power and an SIG OL LED for input-level monitoring. Each line output also is equipped with SIG OL LEDs.

As in TASCAM Sonicview recording mixers, each SB-16D microphone input feeds a TASCAM Class 1 HDIA (High Definition Instrumentation Architecture) preamp—the finest mic preamp TASCAM has ever made. Thanks to an instrumentation amplifier with extremely good noise characteristics in the first stage, Class 1 HDIA microphone preamps exhibit excellent EIN, signal-to-noise ratio, distortion ratio, and frequency response. The mic inputs can accept up to +32 dBu signals, providing plenty of headroom for sudden level increases. As with TASCAM Sonicview recording mixers, the SB-16D uses 32-bit analog-to-digital converters and a 96 kHz sampling frequency. Repeated internal and external evaluations were conducted to fine-tune the SB-16D, ensuring best-in-class sound that will never disappoint.
