Stagebox systems are serious pieces of equipment. They offer the most organised and reliable multicore solution. When you’re on the road, going gig to gig you need to be 100% confident in your audio equipment and with a stagebox you can be confident of no problems at all; these systems can comfortably be rigged and de-rigged every single night of a 6 month tour with little to no maintenance required.
Our multipin recommendation would be the VDM connector. The UK touring market now uses these connectors so widely and with such confidence that sub-hiring between PA companies is a common occurrence.
