Magma Announce New Expansion Chassis ROBEN-3 Coming Very Soon

Magma have announced there is a new member of the expansion chassis coming to join the ExpressBox 1T and ExpressBox 3T chassises pictured above. The new chassis is called the ROBEN-3 and it will feature 3-slots of PCIe expansion capacity with a robust, high speed backplane like its smaller brother the ExpressBox 3T.

But there is more…
That’s not it, the ROBEN-3 will be a rack-mountable aluminum chassis designed for integrated removable storage expansion, with room for up to 8 hot pluggable 2.5” SSD, SAS or SATA hard drives. This added power can be channeled through lightning fast Thunderbolt technology at 10Gbps, with the option of 20Gbps bandwidth with the roll-out of Thunderbolt 2 capable devices like the new Mac Pro. With 3-Slot PCIe and internal storage expansion, ROBEN-3 enables the serious audio professional to transform their computer into a powerful workstation - a sidekick for the creative hero. 

Add a Mac Mini
ROBEN-3 will also allow you the option to host a MacMini within the chassis creating an integrated rackmount server with direct Thunderbolt connection to 3-slot PCIe expansion slots. MacMini external connectivity is provided through the front and rear panels, including a secure I-Lok housing allowing you to lock your valuable application or plug-in licenses right to the chassis.

Magma have clearly been listening to what professionals in the creative sectors have been saying and are producing a new product that will sit well with either the new Apple Mac Pro or provide a completely rack mounted solution with a Mac Mini. We look forward to seeing one in the flesh. If you are at AES in New York, you will be able to see it on the Magma stand 2921 from October 18th to 20th 2013.
