Bose Professional is now shipping the latest additions to its ToneMatch audio engine series: the new eight-channel T8S ToneMatch mixer and the four-channel T4S ToneMatch mixer, representing the next generation of the ToneMatch line and offering unprecedented connectivity with intuitive control. Compact and portable, both the T8S and T4S are gig-ready. Their rugged enclosures have a protective, magnetically-coupled cover to protect controls and connectors. A chassis-bottom insert allows the use of standard mounting accessories to keep the mixers in reach during performances.
The eight-channel T8S ToneMatch mixer is intuitive to operate, with illuminated, tactile controls, an easy-to-read display and scene recall. ToneMatch processing presets with the powerful and advanced DSP engine (including studio-quality effects and Bose zEQ equalization, which redefines low, mid and high ranges for each ToneMatch preset) make it easy for musicians to take control of their music. When used with Bose L1 and F1 systems, the T8S provides full end-to-end tonal optimization.
The T8S includes a ToneMatch power supply. Dimensions are: 8.4 x 12.25 x 3.25 inches (214 x 311 x 83 millimeters).
The four-channel T4S offers most of the same features as the T8S, but also includes dual ToneMatch links – designed to send digital audio to L1 Model 1S/II systems while receiving power on the same provided ToneMatch cable (note: when not used with an L1 system, the T4S can also be optionally powered by an accessory ToneMatch power supply). The final difference between the mixers is the inclusion of an output meter on the T8S (not included on the T4S). Dimensions are 8.4 x 7.25 x 3.25 inches (214 x 184 x 83 millimeters).
The T8S and T4S are now available for $899 and $599, respectively. You can see it here.
