Roland System Group S-0816
Digital Snake, Front of House Unit

OUR PART #  S0816


Compact, portable digital snake. Part of the S-1608 system.

The REAC (Roland Ethernet Audio Communication) protocol is an industry proven, low latency, high quality 24 bit/ 96 kHz audio transport protocol used by the S-0816.  The REAC protocol allows the Digital Snake’s signal to be “split” to as many positions as required such as monitor, broadcast and recording splits using the RSS S-4000-SP or any standard gigabit Ethernet switch.
