The RME BOB 16 I Analog Breakout Box is a suitable rack solution for interconnecting multi-channel XLRs with the common D-sub connector format. BOB-16 I Breakout Box connects 16 XLR inputs (Neutrik connectors) to 2 D-sub 25-pin output connectors (channels 1 to 8 and channels 9 to 16). It works like 2 breakout cables D-Sub from/to XLR.
The breakout box supports all interfaces using analog 25-pin D-sub inputs as well as the M-32 AD and M-16 AD RME interfaces. The usual multi-core breakout cables are replaced with a 19” rack mount unit, preventing cable chaos, errors, and connection problems. The analog breakout box is pin compatible to the common TASCAM pin-out format.
The BOB 16 I Breakout Box provides the flip frame option, which allows to change rack brackets and handles from front to rear and thus to change XLR or D-sub from front to rear as well. This way the analog breakout box will perfectly fit in every rack and working situation.
Note: Adapters to the YAMAHA format are also available (sold separately).
