However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

REAC Technology

The Roland Ethernet Audio Communication technology offers professional quality processing to your audio. The 24-bit/ 96kHz processing takes a high quality audio sample and then produces it with crisp clarity. REAC allows the Digital Snake’s signal to be split to a whole number of positions such as monitor, broadcast and recording. The whole processing of all the inputs and outputs can be sent down a single CAT5e cable, which stops excessive wiring and cluttering issues.

High Resolution Sound

The Digital Snakes retain your microphone’s quality by amplifying it from the closest distance to the sound point. The preamps can be controlled from an S-4000R or by Roland’s free PC and Mac RCS software, which allows you to control a number of parameters. The Digital Snake is resilient to electrical noise and disturbance, resulting in no buzzes or background humming. The Digital Snake is an upgrade in ease of use and sound quality from a traditional analog.

Professional Quality

All of the S0816’s inputs use industry standard preamps for the cleanest transfer. The discreet circuit design has a more intricate signal transfer, resulting in a clear signal processing. There’s no need for external DIs due to the S0816’s TRS and Hi-Z outputs, eliminating a longer chain and more equipment. The -65 to 10dBu input gain is fully adjustable on the unit so you can have the optimum blend of clarity and volume. The S0816’s sound quality keeps your inputs’ performance engaging and expressive.

Compact Size

A frequent issue of gigging bands and pop up events is that the equipment is too bulky, heavy and inconvenient to transport. The S0816 removes this issue with its lightweight, portable design. Weighing just 5.5kgs, the unit can easily be carried to and around the stage with ease. The attached battery pack allows you to roam freely without having to be connected to a main power source. The unit’s steel handles protect the inputs from any drops whilst on the road, and the steel casing keeps the S0816 securely protected.
