API introduced its new eight-slot 500-8 lunchbox at the 2014 NAMM. The new eight-slot model is priced the same as the six-slot 500-6 lunchbox, effectively giving new purchasers two free slots.
In addition, the new 500-8B includes all of the features of the 500-6B, including DB-25 (D-Sub) connectors for easy I/O, universal power supply (100- or 250-volt, 47 Hz to 63 Hz), phantom power, rack-mounting with optional rack-ear kit for robust performance, and new toggle switches for channel linking.
Notes Larry Droppa, president of API, “Listening to our end users is key to our product development. As we add new 500 series modules to our line, including the new 505-DI and 565 Filter Bank, it was only natural to add two more slots to the 500-6 lunchbox. And to make it even sweeter, we decided to offer the 500-8 lunchbox at the same price as the 6.”
The 500-8 lunchbox is now shipping.
