Connectivity for some of us has just got much easier as RME have intoduced BOB-32, a universal breakout box for AES/EBU XLR or D-Sub.
BOB-32 has two sides. One offers eight XLR AES/EBU inputs and eight XLR AES/EBU outputs, the other side provides two D-sub connectors.
Access to all connectors at once can be made easy however as, uniquely, the box can be â€˜foldedâ€™ in the middle, bringing all connectors to one side.
The BOB-32 comes with 2 different pinout formats, which can be switched between Tascam , (Digidesign, RME) pinout or Yamaha pinout format.
