The RME BOB 16 I/O Analog Breakout Box is a suitable rack solution for interconnecting multi-channel XLRs with the common D-sub connector format. BOB-16 I/O Breakout Box connects 8 XLR inputs (Neutrik connectors) to a D-sub 25-pin connector and 8 XLR outputs (Neutrik connectors) to another D-sub 25-pin connector. 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 ADI-8 QS, ADI-8 DS, M-32 AD, M-32 DA, M-16 AD, and M-16 DA 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/O 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).
