The StudioLive 16R Series III rack mixer is a perfect partner for your StudioLive Series III console/recorder, serving as either a simple stage box or a combination stage box and monitor mixer. Since Series III rack mixers and consoles can network using AVB, you can connect your StudioLive 16R to a Series III front-of-house console with one lightweight CAT5e or CAT6 Ethernet cable, eliminating the need for a heavy, expensive copper snakeand the signal degradation that goes with long analog cable runs. You can even remote control the StudioLive 16R's preamps and phantom power from your networked Series III console. In stage box + monitor mixer mode, the StudioLive 16R not only serves as an excellent networked stage box, it is a full blown monitor mixer with far more processing and mixing power than any mixer in its class--all packed into just one rackspace.
