AB168 Stagebox description:

The Allen & Heath AB168 Stagebox is a stagebox, for the GLD and Qu Series, featuring 16 mic preamps, with eight XLR line outs, rubber bumpers, and a carry handle. The AB168 is a portable remote AudioRack for use with the Allen & Heath GLD and Qu series in live and installation settings. Featuring 16 mic preamps with phantom power indicators and eight XLR line outs, AB168 runs on Allen & Heath’s proprietary dSNAKE protocol and is compatible with both the Qu and GLD ranges.

Adding an AB168 to a Qu or GLD system allows some or all I/O to be positioned up to 120m from the mixer. The unit connects over a single Cat5 cable to the Qu/GLD mixer or AR2412 AudioRack via a secure dSNAKE EtherCon port. A second EtherCon port is provided for daisy-chaining to another AB168 box or connection of a ME personal mixing system.

AB168 auto updates its firmware to synchronise with the system. The rack’s rugged design, including rubber bumpers, renders it highly roadworthy and allows it to be placed on the stage floor during performances. Weighing in at just 4.8kg and featuring a sturdy carry handle, AB168 is also designed for maximum convenience and portability.

The main features of the Allen & Heath AB168 Stagebox include:

  • 16x mic preamps on XLR
  • Compatible with GLD and Qu
  • Phantom power LED per input
  • 8x XLR line outs
  • dSNAKE connection with locking Ethercon port
  • Additional locking Ethercon port for daisy chaining / ME personal mixing system
  • Rubber bumpers
  • Carry handle

Excellent manufacturing quality and it does exactly what is says on the tin!
Delivered quickly and efficiently, really good product.

Wow! I was slightly worried that going analogue to digital would add some noticeable latency but this is not the case with the AB168. It works perfectly and no need to haul 40kg of multicore to venues. It saves my back and importantly save time with set-ups. I great match for my QU-16!
Well done A&H.
