Handling caution
Backup battery
• When turning on the AC power in your audio system, always turn on the power
amplifier LAST, to avoid speaker damage. When turning the power off, the power
amplifier should be turned off FIRST for the same reason.
• Condensation can occur in the device due to rapid, drastic changes in ambient
temperature – when the device is moved from one location to another, or air
conditioning is turned on or off, for example. Using the device while
condensation is present can cause damage. If there is reason to believe that
condensation might have occurred, leave the device for several hours without
turning on the power until the condensation has completely dried out.
• This device has a built-in backup battery that maintains data in internal memory
even when the device’s power is switched off. The backup battery will eventually
become depleted, however, and when that happens the contents of the internal
memory will be lost.* To prevent loss of data be sure to replace the backup
battery before it becomes fully depleted. Imminent battery depletion is indicated
by the panel LEDs, as described on page 21. In this case, immediately save the
data to a compatible digital mixer, then have qualified Yamaha service personnel
replace the backup battery. The average life of the internal backup battery is
approximately 5 years, depending on operating conditions.
* Data items maintained in the internal memory by the backup battery are as
follows:
• Do not insert your fingers or hands in any gaps or openings on the device
(vents, etc.).
• internal head amplifier settings
• Avoid inserting or dropping foreign objects (paper, plastic, metal, etc.) into any
gaps or openings on the device (vents, etc.) If this happens, turn off the power
immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the
device inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not use the device for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable
volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience
any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.
• Do not rest your weight on the device or place heavy objects on it, and avoid use
excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
XLR-type connectors are wired as follows (IEC60268 standard): pin 1: ground, pin 2: hot (+), and pin 3: cold (-).
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the device, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the device is not in use.
The performance of components with moving contacts, such as switches, and connectors, deteriorates over time. Consult qualified Yamaha service personnel about replacing
defective components.

Foreword
Thank you for choosing the Yamaha SB168-ES Stage Box. The SB168-ES is an EtherSound capable stage box with 16 analog inputs and 8 analog outputs. In order to take
full advantage of the features and performance offered by the SB168-ES, be sure to
read this owner’s manual carefully before operation.
SB168-ES Features
■ Long-distance EtherSound Network Capability
Audio can be transferred over distances up to 100 meters* between devices via standard Ethernet cables using the EtherSound network protocol. The SB168-ES can be used as a general-purpose analog I/O box. Supported sampling rates are
44.1 kHz and 48 kHz (88.2 kHz and 96 kHz are not supported).
* Maximum practical distance may vary according to the cable used.
■ Remotely Controllable Internal Head Amplifiers
Internal head amplifier parameters can be remotely controlled from a compatible digital mixing console or from the AVSESMonitor application running on a computer.
■ Up to Four SB168-ES Units* Can Be Used for Expanded I/O
Up to four SB168-ES units can be used to provide a total of 64 inputs and 32 outputs.
* The maximum number of units that can be used may depend on the digital mixing console used.
Firmware Updates
Two types of firmware are required: firmware for the SB168-ES unit itself, provided by Yamaha, and EtherSound firmware provided by AuviTran.
The SB168-ES firmware can be updated from a computer connected to the rear-panel NETWORK connector. Information
about the latest versions and firmware downloads are available at the Yamaha pro audio website SB168-ES product page:
http://www.yamahaproaudio.com/products
The EtherSound firmware can be updated from a computer connected to the EtherSound connector.
Information about the latest versions and firmware downloads are available at the AuviTran website:
http://www.auvitran.com/
Connecting the AC Power Cable
• Before connecting the power cable, make sure that the power switches of all devices are turned OFF.
CAUTION
First connect the supplied power cable to the socket on the rear panel of the SB168-ES, then connect the AC plug to an appropriate AC power outlet (make sure the local supply voltage matches the rated AC voltage of the unit).
6
SB168-ES Owner’s Manual
Powering ON or OFF
• To prevent loud noise bursts from the speakers when powering up the system, turn devices on in the following order:
audio sources, SB168-ES, digital mixer, and finally power amplifiers. Reverse this order when turning the system off.
CAUTION
1. Press the [POWER] switch to turn the unit ON.
2. Press the [POWER] switch a second time to turn the unit OFF.
CAUTION
• The unit consumes a very small “standby” voltage even when the power switch is turned OFF. Be sure to unplug the AC
power cable if the unit will not be used for an extended period of time.
• Rapidly turning the unit ON and OFF in succession can cause it to malfunction. After turning the unit OFF, wait for about
6 seconds before turning it ON again.
Precautions for Rack Mounting
This unit is rated for operation at ambient temperatures ranging from 0 to 40 degrees Celsius. When mounting the unit with
other SB168-ES unit(s) or other device(s) in an EIA standard equipment rack, internal temperatures can exceed the specified
upper limit, resulting in impaired performance or failure.
Always observe the following when rack mounting the unit:
• If three or more SB168-ES units are mounted without space in the same rack, set the fan speeds to HIGH.
• If multiple SB168-ES units are mounted in the same rack with their fan speeds set to LOW, leave a 1U rack space between
every two units. Also either leave the open spaces uncovered or install appropriate ventilating panels to minimize the possibility of heat buildup.
• When mounting the unit in a rack with devices such as power amplifiers that generate a significant amount of heat, leave
more than 1U of space between the SB168-ES and other device. Also either leave the open spaces uncovered or install appropriate ventilating panels to minimize the possibility of heat buildup.
• To ensure sufficient airflow, leave the rear of the rack open and position it at least 10 centimeters from walls or other surfaces.
If the rear of the rack can’t be left open, install a commercially available fan or similar ventilating option to secure sufficient
airflow. If you’ve installed a fan kit, there may be cases in which closing the rear of the rack will produce a greater cooling
effect. Refer to the rack and/or fan unit manual for details.
Recessed installation
If you want to recess the front panel surface of the device from the front edge of the rack, you can adjust the position of the rack
mount brackets to recess the device by 50mm or 100mm.
NOTE
• When you install the brackets, use the same screws that you just removed.
Resetting the Unit to Initial Factory Condition (Initialization)
This operation initializes the internal backup memory, resetting all head amplifier parameters to the original factory settings.
1. Turn the power OFF.
2. Move front-panel DIP switches 6 and 8 down to
the ON position, then turn the power ON.
Initialization will take about one second.
When initialization is complete all [PEAK] indicators
on the front panel will flash. At the same time the OUT
[TX]/IN [RX] indicators will flash and the IN [TX]
indicator will light.
ON
3. Turn the power OFF, return DIP switches 6 and
8 to their original positions, then turn the power
ON again.

About EtherSound
EtherSound is …
EtherSound is an audio networking protocol developed by Digigram in France. EtherSound allows up to 64 channels of uncompressed 24 bit/48 kHz audio to be bi-directionally transferred – 64 channels downstream plus 64 channels upstream – over a
single CAT5e Ethernet cable. Up to 32 channels of 24 bit audio can be transferred when the sample rate is 96 kHz. Remote control signals for head amplifiers and other devices can be transferred simultaneously with the audio signals.
Signals can be transferred over distances of up to 100 meters* between devices. Even greater distances can be covered if media
converters are used to convert the signals to optical fiber format.
* Dependent on cable quality. Refer to the website listed below for details.
http://www.ethersound.com/
Latency when transferring 48 kHz signals is 5 samples (104µsec), increasing by 1.4 µsec for each device added to the network
(including network switches). EtherSound is the ideal choice for systems in which minimal latency is a priority.
The AVS-ESMonitor software application for Windows platforms that allows setup and monitoring of devices connected to an
EtherSound network is available from the AuviTran website at no charge.
http://www.auvitran.com/
Daisy Chain and Ring Networks
The most basic type of connection used for EtherSound networks is the serial “Daisy Chain.” Daisy chain networks allow 64
channels of audio to be independently transferred in both the downstream and upstream directions simultaneously. In this case
the top device in the chain is the word clock master, known as the “Primary Master.”

If a connection is broken in a daisy chain network, the signal flow is interrupted at that point and no signal will be transferred
beyond that point. This weakness can be overcome by connecting the ends of a daisy chain network to form a ring that provides
signal redundancy. In this type of “Ring” network a problem at one point in the network will not affect operation of the entire
network. The compromise is that ring networks are limited to a total of 64 audio channels. It is also necessary to use EtherSound devices that support ring network connection (the SB168-ES does support ring networks). Network switches and similar
devices cannot be used in a ring network.

These are the XLR-3-31 type analog connectors for the 16
input channels. The input level range is from -62 dBu to +10
dBu. +48V phantom power can be supplied to devices that
require it via the input connectors.
These indicators light green when the signal applied to the
corresponding channel reaches or exceeds -34 dBFS. The
SIG indicators also function as error indicators: the indicators for all channels will flash if an error occurs.
NOTE
• The PAD will be switched on or off internally when the
gain of the SB168-ES internal head amp is adjusted
between -14 dB and -13 dB. Keep in mind that noise
may be generated if there is a difference between the
Hot and Cold impedance of the external device connected to the INPUT connector when using phantom
power.
r PEAK Indicators
These indicators light red when the signal level of the corresponding channel reaches or exceeds -3 dBFS. The PEAK
indicators also function as error indicators: the indicators for
all channels will flash if an error occurs (and during initialization).
w +48V Indicators
t EtherSound [IN]/[OUT] Connectors
These indicators light when +48V phantom power is turned
ON for the corresponding input channels. Phantom power
supply switching can be carried out from a compatible digital mixing console or computer application. No phantom
power will be supplied, however, if the [+48V MASTER]
switch is OFF, even if phantom power to individual channels
is turned ON (the +48V indicators will still light). The +48V
indicators also function as error indicators: the indicators for
all channels will flash if an error occurs.
The SB168-ES can be connected to other EtherSound devices
via these RJ-45 connectors using standard Ethernet cables
(CAT5e or better recommended). [IN] and [OUT] connectors
are provided to allow daisy chain or ring connection.
CAUTION
10
wer
• Make sure that phantom power is turned OFF unless
it is needed.
• When turning phantom power ON, make sure that no
equipment other than phantom-powered devices
such condenser microphones are connected to the
corresponding INPUT connectors. Applying phantom
power to a device that does not require phantom
power can damage the device.
• Do not connect or disconnect a device to an INPUT
while phantom power is applied. Doing so can damage the connected device and/or the unit itself.
• To prevent possible damage to speakers, make sure
that power amplifiers and/or powered speakers are
turned OFF when switching phantom power ON or
OFF. We also recommend setting all digital mixing
console output controls to minimum when turning
phantom power ON or OFF. Sudden high level peaks
caused by the switching operation can damage
equipment as well as the hearing of those present.
SB168-ES Owner’s Manual
NOTE
• The use of Ethernet cables with Neutrik etherCON®
CAT5 compatible RJ-45 plugs is recommended. Standard RJ-45 plugs can also be used.
• Use STP (shielded twisted pair) cable to prevent electromagnetic interference. Make sure that the metal
parts of the plugs are electrically connected to the STP

For maximum safety, please earth the unit properly. The supplied AC power cable is a 3-wire type, so if the AC outlet
used is properly earthed the SB168-ES will be earthed as
well. If the AC outlet used is not earthed, however, please
use the earth screw to earth the unit. In addition to maximizing safety, proper earth connection also effectively minimizes hum and interference.
Sets the internal cooling fan to operate at either HIGH or
LOW speed. This switch is set to LOW when the unit is initially shipped from the factory. As long as the unit is operated within the specified ambient temperature range either
the LOW or HIGH setting can be used. The HIGH setting is
recommended if the ambient temperature is high, if the unit
is in direct sunlight even if the ambient temperature is within
the specified operating range, and in any situation in which
fan noise is not a problem.
If two or more SB168-ES units are mounted in the same rack
and the fan speed is set to LOW, leave a 1U rack space
between every two units. Also either leave the open rack
spaces uncovered or install appropriate ventilating panels to
minimize the possibility of heat buildup. If three or more
SB168-ES units are mounted without space in the same
rack, set the fan speeds to HIGH.
w [AC IN] Socket
Connect the supplied AC power cable here. First connect the
AC power cable to the socket on the SB168-ES rear panel,
then plug it into an appropriate AC power outlet.
WARNING
• Use only the supplied AC power cable. The use of an
inappropriate cable can result in equipment failure,
overheating, or even fire.
e NETWORK Connector
An Ethernet cable can be connected from a computer to this
connector to allow updating the unit’s firmware.
NOTE
• Use STP (shielded twisted pair) cable to prevent electromagnetic interference (USA, Canada, and Europe).

About the AVS-ESMonitor Software
AVS-ESMonitor is a software application from the Auvitran company that allows monitoring and control of EtherSound networks. It can be used to make input/output assignments and set the EtherSound parameters as required. Please download the
AVS-ESMonitor application from the website listed below. AVS-ESMonitor versions 3.4.6 and later support the SB168-ES.
http://www.auvitran.com/
Initial SB168-ES setup can be performed quickly and easily using the AVSESMonitor Quick Setup function. The Quick Setup function provides the following capabilities:
• Sets up necessary EtherSound settings for the SB168-ES and MY16-ES64.
EtherSound devices other than the SB168-ES and MY16-ES64 are not
affected, but patches to those other EtherSound devices will be cleared.
• Support for up to four SB168-ES units connected to an MY16-ES64.
• The Quick Setup function cannot be used if two or more MY16-ES64 cards
are connected to the network. To connect multiple SB168-ES units, add one
MY16-EX card for each additional SB168-ES unit added to the network
(an MY16-EX card is not required for the first or only SB168-ES unit in a
network).
• After the Quick Setup function is executed, as long as the network connections are not changed there is no need to perform the Quick Setup procedure again. However, if the number and/or order of the SB168-ES units are
changed, or the connected devices (SB168-ES, MY16-ES64) are replaced,
it will be necessary to perform the Quick Setup operation again.
The Quick Setup function cannot be used when EtherSound cards from other manufacturers are used. In such a case the necessary initial parameters must be set up manually: refer to “Individual Parameter Settings (Control Page)” on page 16 for details.
When connecting with the M7CL-48ES, the Auto Configure function can apply the patch settings automatically without the
AVS-ESMonitor application. The latest firmware for the SB168-ES will be required in this case.
