EtherSound for Your Yamaha Digital Mixer!

The Yamaha NAI48-ES network audio interface allows you to ditch your bulky analog snake in favor of a single Cat 5e cable, for a simplified live rig that's easy to set up and operate. Tailor-made for your Yamaha digital console, the NAI48-ES lets you connect to an A/D or D/A converter for remote analog input or output. At Sweetwater, we've found digital snake systems like the NAI48-ES to be more noise resistant than conventional analog stage boxes, and they also provide you with stellar sound quality by keeping your microphone cables as short as possible. If you want a convenient way to add EtherSound capability to your Yamaha digital mixer, check out the Yamaha NAI48-ES network audio interface!

EtherSound gives you high-quality, bidirectional, multichannel routing

Just install one or more AuviTran AVY16-ES EtherSound cards in the console's Mini-YGDAI card slots, and you're good to go! You can even use standard Ethernet hubs and routers to create any network configuration that suits your needs.
