Behringer SD16 Digital Snake

Digital mixing has revolutionized virtually everything in the live-entertainment production workflow. The SD16 provides 16 MIDAS-designed remote-controllable mic preamps, 8 balanced analog XLR returns at the stage end, plus an integrated 4-port ULTRANET distribution hub for direct connection to Behringer's P16-M personal monitor mixers - without any additional hardware required. Plus, the SD16 is extremely compact and comes with rugged protective bumpers, so you can toss them directly on stage wherever you need them. The best part - all it takes is a single Cat 5e cable per stage box. And if you need more inputs, or just want to keep your cable runs short and tidy, putting an SD16 at stage front and another behind the drum riser gives you an additional 16 inputs for drum and guitar/bass amp mic'ing.

Learn more about the SD16 Digital Snake in this video from Behringer:

When used as part of a complete X32 system, as many as three SD16 Stage Boxes can be cascaded via the built-in AES50 ports to provide up to 48 bidirectional inputs and 24 balanced XLR outputs. An onboard ULTRANET distribution hub provides power and 16 channels of audio to 4 BEHRINGER POWERPLAY P16-M personal monitor mixers per SD16, all via inexpensive Cat 5e cabling - and without any additional hardware. Two of the programmable inputs are also compatible with Hi-Z sources, so you can connect keyboards, acoustic and bass guitars, etc., with no DI box required. The SD16 also features a USB port for fast and easy system updates via your PC.

Remotely Controllable Preamps Make Setup a Breeze

The SD16 Stage Box is a studio/live sound engineer's dream come true. Setup is extremely easy, with virtually all parameter control taking place at the console - including the award-winning MIDAS-designed mic preamps, +48 V phantom power, destination routing, etc. Just put the SD16 where you want it, run a few Cat 5e, mic and instrument cables - and head for the console. The SD16 makes setting the stage up virtually foolproof!

8 Servo-Balanced XLR Outputs

The SD16 features 8 XLR balanced outputs, allowing you to connect to your amp racks, active loudspeakers and monitors. Thanks to its reference-class Cirrus Logic 24-bit converters, SD16's digital operation eliminates even the slightest possibility of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and crosstalk. You get ultra-pristine audio performance, no matter the application - something unheard of in this class!

KLARK TEKNIK AES50

KLARK TEKNIK SuperMAC (AES50-Compliant) technology gives the SD16 its high-capacity, ultra-low latency digital interconnectivity, as well as superbly simple deployment and ease of use. KLARK TEKNIK engineers worked hand-in-hand with BEHRINGER to ensure the SD16 meets, or exceeds, the requirements of live entertainers and their professional audio engineers.

ULTRANET - Seamless Integration

The world-renowned engineers at KLARK TEKNIK, MIDAS, TURBOSOUND and BEHRINGER have all come together to create something truly innovative that will change your live and studio workflow forever - welcome to ULTRANET. This revolutionary technology seamlessly transmits up to 16 independent channels of 24-bit digital audio and control data via a single Cat 5e cable between compatible digital devices - including mixers, I/O stage boxes, powered loudspeakers and personal monitoring systems. Advantages realized through ULTRANET digital networking, versus traditional analog methods, include: all audio signals are impervious to Radio Frequency Interference (RFI); signal crosstalk is eliminated, and ease of use translates directly into a significant amount of time saved during show setup or installation. And the SD16's onboard ULTRANET distribution hub supplies phantom power over CAT5 directly to your P16-M Personal Monitoring Mixers, eliminating the need for external power adapters. ULTRANET effectuates a powerful digital eco-system that gives you unparalleled ease of deployment, performance and control for BEHRINGER P16 Personal Monitoring Systems and Turbosound iQ Speaker Series.

Extreme Value

As you can see, the SD16 is an extremely versatile 16 x 8 digital stage box solution with remote-controllable MIDAS-designed mic preamps, KLARK TEKNIK's AES50 connectivity and a wealth of other professional-grade features - all at a price anyone can afford! Built tough enough to withstand the rigors of the road, the SD16 connects to FOH with a single, inexpensive Cat 5e cable. Now you can have the missing link between the stage and FOH at a fraction of the cost of competing systems.

Features:

- 16 MIDAS-designed, fully programmable mic preamps for audiophile sound quality
- 8 analog, servo-balanced XLR outputs
- AES50 network ports featuring KLARK TEKNIK's SuperMAC networking capability for ultra-low jitter and latency

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Problems Integrating SD16 Into Existing Dual S16 System"
Overall: Hey there. I am writing this more as an informational piece than a review because I had some problems integrating the SD16 into my existing X32 with two S16 setup and I could not find any information at all online to help me. I called zZounds and they referred me to Behringer's tech support. Basically here is what happened. I bought the SD16 as a way to have another drop on the opposite side of the stage. Currently my two S16's are mounted in my amp rack so I need to run cabling across or behind the stage to get to it. When I hooked up the SD16 as the last unit in the chain, the system did not recognize it at all and I had no control over it. The kicker was (and this is what threw me initially) the AES50 lights on my second S16 and the SD16 were solid green telling me that the setup was synced. At that point I started thinking that maybe I needed to update the firmware in my X32 in order to use the SD16. I bought the system together back in 2013 and really haven't needed to do any updates. The system has worked flawlessly since I got it. I went ahead and updated the firmware (from 2.5 to 2.16) and that still did not fix the problem. Here is where it gets really interesting. I started to think maybe there was a problem with the B port on my second S16 so I disconnected everything and hooked straight to the SD16. The X32 picked it up perfectly. No issues. I then hooked up the SD16 as the first box in the chain (X32 to SD16 to first S16 to second S16) and again it was picked up by the X32 and worked perfectly. The routing screen on the X32 showed the SD16 and both of the S16's. I then thought maybe there was a problem with the second S16 in general so I hooked up the first S16 to the SD16 and the same problem occured. Only the S16 showed up on the routing screen. This is when I called zZounds to see if they could help and they sent me to Behringer. The first tech I talked to at Behringer thought that maybe I had a bad cable so I swapped out all of the cabling and that did not fix the problem. I called Behringer again. The second person I talked to knew exactly what the problem was. Back at the end of 2014 there was a firmware update that was released for the S16 boxes that was not widely publicized. Also, as a side note, without having the S16 connected via USB there is no way to tell what firmware version you are running. I was on 1.1 and the new firmware is 2.2. I downloaded the new firmware (which has a PDF file telling you how to do the update) and ran it on both S16's. Everything works great now. The X32 sees everything and I have full control over the SD16 as the last box in the chain or wherever I decide to put it in the chain. I hope this helps some of you that might be having this same issue. I realize that many of you are probably running newer systems than I am but like I said earlier, I could not find ANYTHING on this issue ANYWHERE. Even in the Behringer forums. I'm pretty sure there are quite a few people out there running older firmware because unless you are using the X32 in a studio situation, most of the firmware updates that I have seen apply more to the studio environment that the live environment (which is where I am using my system). I hope this helps a few of you out there.
