Multicore Stagebox Systems
Despite the growing popularity of digital stagebox systems, analog stage multicores are still very much in demand. As well as still being a more cost effective way of transmitting several channels of audio, and are often used with digital mixing consoles.
Indeed, an analog multicore has one major advantage over a digital system and that is one of redundancy. In other words, if an analog multicore system fails, it will generally do so in one channel only. So the provision of a few spare channels will cover any eventuality. If a digital system fails, connection of all channels is lost. This factor is why you will often see analog snakes being used with digital mixing consoles.
The advantages of digital multicore systems tend to be in terms of size and weight rather than any real sound quality advantage, so for fixed installations where portability is not really an issue, we think traditional analog systems are still very much worth considering.
Naturally, we select products that have a track record of reliability and dependability, but at some point every product fails, and with an analog system you can simply use a spare channel. Not so with a digital one.
At The Noizeworks, we keep a huge range of stagebox systems for all applications and budgets. From small 10 metre 8 way systems to large format 40 channel 50 metre products. Drum mounted systems, sub multicores, you name it, we have it.
