Glendale, CA (November 9, 2017)—Bittree, manufacturer of pro-grade audio, video and data patching systems, has announced the second product in its new ProStudio series of audio patchbays.
Complementing the recently-introduced ProStudio 4825F compact desktop model (check out our recent, real-world review of the PS4825F here), the front-programmable ProStudio 9625F provides a 96-jack rackmount configuration. The PS9625F will make its exhibition debut at the 2018 NAMM Show (January 25-28, 2018 in Anaheim, California), where Bittree will exhibit in Booth #10614.
At $1,125 MSRP, the PS9625F comes in a 1.5 RU rackmount form factor with 96 TT (bantam) connectors in a high-density 2x48 configuration, with 12 DB-25 rear connectors for interfacing with Avid ProTools and Tascam I/O.
Features include a metal front panel and full-frame jacks with gold cross-bar switching contacts. According to Bittree, its internal digital AES wiring ensures higher-quality audio than the flat cable typical in low-cost offerings. Further, pro-grade front-accessible shunts enable convenient reconfiguration of circuit normalling, grounding and bussing, and are protected from dust, electrical interference and other elements by the PS9625F’s two removable stainless steel designation strips.
The extra-large designation strips offer space for up to three lines of print for labelling, and combine with silk-screened numbering on the front panel to enable quick circuit identification.
