Digital snake

The S-0808 digital snake is an 8-in/8-out compact, lightweight snake that supports multiple power options including battery power, embedded powered over REAC and power over Ethernet (PoE). The inputs offer remote controllable preamps, phantom-power, 24-bit 96kHz A/D conversion as well as choices of XLR, TRS line and even Hi-Z capability to reduce the need for direct boxes. It works in conjunction with the S-4000M REAC merge unit, which allows up to four digital snake heads to be merged into a REAC stream where the master device recognizes it as single REAC slave unit. This technology enables distribution of multiple input/output units around a location.
