Amazing DAC and monitor controller
by Ilia K. from United StatesI work out several studios and collaborate with different mastering engineers. For my project studio I was using a Presonus Central station to do monitor switching along with it's D/A conversion. I h... read more [+]ave to say when I plugged this thing in I was blown away. The clarity and depth I heard, especially in the low end was stunning. I could hear reverb tails clearly and a nicely sepearted midrange. I do not know if it is the DAC or signal path or both, but this was money well spent. Usually most people will tell you not to worry about your DAC until you have all your other bases covered (mics, pres, etc). However with this unit I made a very noticeable difference to my monitoring chain. This unit is worth trying out, especially if you are using some lower end monitoring / converter chain such as a central station. While it does not have the feature set of the central station it blows the sound right out of the water. This box is also perfect if you have no need for analog summing supplied in the D box. After buying the music source I was inspired to upgrade my project studio monitors to get the most out of my monitoring chain and I'm never looking back. close [-]

Great monitor controller
by Jerome from FLThe sound is fantastic and really gives you a very accurate image of the mix. I love all the options for switching and inputs. This unit can really do just about everything. If you are creative it can... read more [+] even be uses as an A/D converter as well. I love the fact it was designed by Mastering engineers, you know the quality of the converters is going to be amazing. The ability to run protools and reference audio playing from my computer via the USB port was an amazing idea. This prevents from having to open the glitchy core audio driver. The guys at Sweetwater really know their stuff, if my sales rep hadn't turned me onto this box I would be sick knowing I went with another option. Just a great buy. close [-]
