Baton Rouge, LA (July 23, 2018)—PreSonus has shipped its EarMix 16M 16-channel personal monitor mixer and NSB 16.8 and NSB 8.8 stageboxes.
Designed to work with the PreSonus StudioLive Series III family of mixers, the EarMix 16M personal monitor mixer accepts 16 mono channels of input via AVB networking and sports a headphone amplifier that can drive low-impedance devices such as professional-caliber in-ear-monitors.
Each unit can create its own custom mix, and users can apply limiting and three-band EQ with sweepable midrange frequency to each channel, as well as to the main mix. Monitor mixes can be saved to internal memory and users can store and recall up to 16 mix scenes locally.
The EarMix 16M can be powered with its included external power supply but also works with Power over Ethernet (PoE), which enables network cables to carry electrical power to compatible devices. A pair of AVB jacks enable users to chain multiple EarMix 16Ms while also connecting to a StudioLive Series III mixer, or even further by chaining EarMix 16Ms from multiple AVB switches, such as the PreSonus SW5E. Once an AVB network has been created, EarMix 16M routings can be set up from a networked StudioLive Series III console or using PreSonus UC Surface control software for Mac, Windows, iPad and Android.
PreSonus’ NSB 16.8 and 8.8 AVB-networked stage boxes deliver signals from stage to console over a CAT 5e or CAT 6 Ethernet cable. All inputs feature gain compensation for shared input scenarios. The NSB series’ inputs, preamps, phantom power and gain compensation can be remote controlled from a networked Series III console or from PreSonus UC Surface touch-control software.
The 16×8 NSB 16.8 offers 16 locking combo mic/line inputs equipped with PreSonus’ remote-controlled XMAX preamps. The 8×8 NSB 8.8 offers eight mic/line inputs. Both models provide eight outputs with locking XLR jacks. A built-in two-port AVB switch can daisy-chain multiple units, or use the PreSonus SW5E AVB switch to support larger shows and installations.
These products are available now at PreSonus dealers at the following street prices (U.S.): EarMix 16M; NSB 16.8 $799.95; and NSB 8.8 $599.95.
