|Wireworks has introduced the MMB8D at AES. An ideal solution for problems involving interfacing DB25 analog and digital connections to XLR connectors, the MMB8D MiniStageBox can be used as a rugged standalone interface, or rack-mounted.
Offering true AES/EBU 110Ù rugged jacked cable combined with Neutrik Black/Gold connectors, the versatile MMB8D is available in various gender combinations with either analog or digital wired DB25 connectors mounted on the rear, or with a 4ft. tail for in-rack direct connection. The MMB8D cabling system includes the unique MMB8D MiniStageBox and MMLD8D MiniLineBox, DB25 Trunks and the convenient MMBR Rack Adaptor for the MMB8D and MMLB8D boxes. Additionally, Wireworks offers a complete line of companion DB25 assemblies to facilitate installation.
“Our MMB8D Cabling System is the only line of cabling products on the market that utilizes AES/EBU components designed specifically to meet the special needs of the audio professional in both the digital and analog domains,” states Gerald Krulewicz, co-founder and co-owner of Wireworks.
The MMB8D MiniStageBox’s unique, all steel chassis is only 1RU high x 9.5" wide (1/2 rack width) and 3" deep. The cleverly designed small package allows the widest variety of uses. With the included baseplate, the MMB8D can function as a tiny stagebox or be wall mounted. Without the baseplate, the MMB8D can be hung or hidden away. Two MMB8D boxes can be mounted side-by-side in the MMBR Rack adaptor in only 1RU.
The MMLD8D MiniLineBox and the MMB8D MiniStageBox are similar in size and functionality. Yet, the MMLD8D MiniLineBox differs due to its ability to connect directly to an individual’s equipment, without an additional DB25/DB25 interconnecting cable. The MMLD8D MiniLineBox’s DB25 female connector is terminated into a hardwired 4ft. cable versus being mounted directly on the box as on the MMB8D MiniStageBox.
DB25 Trunks offer the durability and dependability needed for professionals on the road. These Trunks provide excellent equipment-to-equipment interconnect and are available in five convenient lengths, such as 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25ft. with other lengths to order. The DB25 connectors are equally as sturdy featuring heavy-duty metal bodies with captive thumb screws and gold contacts. Also, utilizing the DB25 Trunks allows the reach of the MMB8D MiniStageBox to be conveniently matched to individual system needs.
The MMBR Rack Adaptor enables any combination of two MMB8D or MMLB8D boxes to be side-by-side rack-mounted in only 1-rack space. The boxes can each be mounted in a flush or recessed position, with either the eight connectors or the DB25 facing forward.
“At Wireworks we have recognized that professionals on the road need a durable, dependable and convenient cabling system that overcomes the rigors of traveling,” Krulewicz continues. “The MMB8D Cabling System successfully meets this need.”
