Glendale, CA – December 5, 2017 – Bittree’s innovations in audio infrastructure continue to accelerate as the company heads into the 2018 NAMM Show, with its second significant product launch in the past month. The latest introduction from the manufacturer of industry-leading audio, video and data patching systems is the ProStudio 9625i 2×48 TT audio patchbay, delivering the robust dependability, superior audio quality and exceptional affordability of Bittree’s critically-acclaimed ProStudio family while saving customers valuable rack space. The PS9625i will be showcased alongside other ProStudio models in booth 10614 at the NAMM Show, taking place January 25-28, 2018 in Anaheim, California.
Like other ProStudio models, the PS9625i is designed to make Bittree’s renowned quality and engineering excellence affordable to all levels of users in the pro audio and musical instrument markets, from hobbyist musicians to top-tier studio engineers. Joining the PS4825F – designed specifically for pairing with transportable 500 Series modular chassis – and the front-programmable PS9625F, the internally-configurable PS9625i cost-effectively ($1095.00 MSRP) provides the ProStudio family’s benefits in a space-efficient 1RU rackmount form factor.
“Our existing ProStudio models have been extremely successful, fulfilling the market’s pent-up demand for reliable, professional-quality patchbays at consumer price points,” said Ari Baron, general manager at Bittree. “The new PS9625i is ideal for people who want to step up from noisier and less robust patching products. With its introduction, we’re delivering the industry’s highest-quality DB-25 patchbay while addressing customers’ requests for a dependable, long-lasting patching system that takes up less rack space.”
The PS9625i offers 96 TT (bantam) jacks in a high-density 2×48 configuration, with DB25 rear interfaces for Avid® ProTools® and Tascam® connectivity. The unit’s metal front panel and sturdy, fully-enclosed, seven inch-deep chassis provide superior durability, while itsfull-frame jacks, gold cross-bar switching contacts and internal digital AES wiring deliver solid connectivity, lower noise, and the cleanest possible signal paths.
Circuit normalling, grounding and bussing on the PS9625i can be easily reprogrammed via internal, professional-grade shunts accessible by opening the top of the 7.6-pound units. Front designation strips over each row of jacks (‘over/over’ orientation) enable easy circuit identification. The designation strips can be reconfigured to ‘over-under’ orientation, revealing silk-screened numbering between the rows, or augmented with an optional third strip.
The ProStudio 9625i is available immediately through dealers including Sweetwater, Guitar Center, Vintage King, Westlake Pro, Dale Pro Audio, Pro Audio LA and many more authorized resellers worldwide. For more information, please visit www.bittree.com.
