Like many that came before it, the Behringer S16 digital snake system provides live sound professionals like you with the convenience of remote-controlled onstage microphone preamps, and it replaces your bulky analog snake with a lightweight and inexpensive Cat 5 Ethernet cable. But it provides you with other great options as well, such as total integration with Behringer’s awesome Powerplay personal monitoring system. Simply put: the S16 system gives you fewer headaches, takes less time to set up, and requires less cabling than any typical analog snake system. It also costs less and gives you more options. See? Sometimes less really is more.
When Behringer first developed their S16 digital snake, they intended it to go hand-in-hand with their powerful X32 digital mixing system. But limiting such a convenient and affordable digital snake to the X32 alone would have been a shame, which is why Behringer designed it around the strict guidelines established by Klark Teknik. The result is an affordable digital snake that’s completely compatible with any digital console that sports an AES50 digital Ethernet connection. So, if you’re running a Midas or a Behringer digital mixing board with an AES50 Ethernet port on it, you’re never more than a single connection away from your stage box.
Even if you try to get a jog in every day, no one likes having to run up to the stage every time you have to make an adjustment to your stage box. Thanks to the S16’s remote-controllable preamp design, those back-and-forth cross-venue dashes are a thing of the past. Using the Klark Teknik SuperMAC protocol, your S16 will show up in your digital mixer’s OS, giving you the control you need over your pres, right from the front of house position. And by the way, these preamps are the exact same high-quality Midas-designed preamps found in the X32 console, so you know you’re getting quality sound with low noise and tons of headroom.
Streamlined, affordable, and super-easy-to-use, everyone’s raving about Behringer’s Powerplay P16 personal monitoring systems. When you add an S16 digital snake system to your PA rig, you’re not just getting a great set of remote-controllable preamps and ditching tons of bulky cable, you’re ready to add an advanced personal monitoring system directly inline with the rig you already have. That’s because your S16 digital snake comes equipped with Ultranet connectivity, which provides your Powerplay P16-M monitor controllers with a digital split straight from the stage box.
