The Roland Systems Group has announced that the new S-0808, an 8-input/8-output, compact, lightweight digital snake that supports multiple power options including battery-power, embedded-powered over REAC and power over Ethernet (PoE), is now shipping.
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.
The S-0808 weighs around 6.6 pounds, making it portable and easy to setup. Rugged construction with steel handles withstands the rigors of live applications and frequent use. Fan-less design enables quiet operation in any environment.
All inputs employ a high quality preamp with fully discreet circuit design. Control input gain (-65 to +10 dBu), pad and phantom power are via a dedicated S-4000R remote controller or using the PC remote control software (S-4000RCS).
When using as part of a V-Mixing System, these parameters are controlled directly from the M-400 or M-380 V-Mixer.
The S-0808 is powered by REAC embedded power, external battery options or power over Ethernet (PoE). Choose the type of power conducive to the specific location and application.
V-Mount (IDX) and Gold Mount (Anton Bauer) battery systems and mounts are supported using the included universal adapter plate.
