The Dangerous Music Stereo MONITOR ST Control System with Remote Control is a 1 unit rack mountable device designed by mastering engineers for monitoring your mix in a studio setting. The device features four switchable analog input sources (-10 dBv or +4 dBu) and three sets of speaker outputs with independent subwoofer control and low pass filtering.
You can program input gain offsets to adjust the device's inputs for different sources. You can also independently adjust and store the subwoofer's level and decide which sets of speakers it will play with. Input 4 has a continuously variable level offset so you can compensate for a commercially mastered CD and carry out true A/B comparisons between your mix and a finished track.
A stereo auxiliary input allows you to layer additional elements on top of your mix such as a voice over when doing work for post production. A talkback microphone with built-in microphone and optional remote circuit gives you the choice of sending the talkback signal to an external cue or to open air speakers. An onboard cue power amplifier provides 40W of power. For headphone monitoring, the unit also includes a 20W headphone amplifier with independent volume control.
Functions such as solo, mono, mute, dim, source selection, speaker selection, and setting recall are controlled by the included remote control, which connects to the device over Ethernet CAT 5e cable. An analog stepped attenuator volume control on the remote provides precise and repeatable adjustments to the overall output level. The unit can be expanded for surround sound operation by connecting the optional MONITOR SR system.
