The m906 by Grace Design is a stand-alone, high fidelity 5.1 monitoring system designed for audio professionals in the music recording and television/film sound markets. Built with the same attention to quality and sonic detail as our company's award winning microphone preamplifiers and model 901 headphone amp, the m906 truly represents a new standard in reference surround monitoring capabilities and performance.
The m906 system is comprised of three components; a 2U, 19" rack mount I/O and processing mainframe, a full function remote control unit and an external 1U, half-rack power supply.
Balanced and unbalanced analog 5.1 inputs, multiple balanced stereo analog inputs, and digital 5.1 and stereo source inputs accommodate large studio monitoring system configurations.
Ultra-low distortion 5.1 and stereo 24-bit D/A conversion included as standard in AES3, ADAT, S/PDIF and Optical (TOSlink) formats. Sample rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz are supported.
The elegant and comprehensive remote control unit allows complete system operation from the mix position. A high quality 25' remote cable is included as standard.
Sophisticated system calibration tools allow users to adjust input levels, inter-channel balance offsets and control room output levels through a range of +/- 10dB in .5dB increments.
A fixed level, 5.1 configuration DAC output allows direct connection to recording systems for stem transfers.
Word Clock input/thru provides external system reference clocking as well as the ability to pass external clock signals thru to other digital devices down stream of the m906.
The m906 DAC includes Grace Design's new s-Lock two stage PLL (Phase Lock Loop) circuitry for the ultimate in low jitter digital signal stability and sonic integrity.
Solo and mute functions are available on a channel by channel basis, and mono, dim and mute all controls are also provided.
Stereo cue inputs/outputs allow cue feeds to be monitored in the control room as well as fed to the studio monitoring system.
Two reference headphone outputs are provided. One is located on the remote control unit while the other is on the front panel of the system mainframe.
Control room and headphone level outputs are controlled via two stepped rotary encoders in .5dB steps. The range is 100dB.
A pair of large, blue 7-segment LED's are used to show control room and headphone output level values.
A balanced talkback microphone input is provided on the rear panel of the system mainframe. Users can operate the talkback function via a momentary-action switch on the remote control unit or by connecting a footswitch to the TRS jack on the rear of the mainframe unit. The mic preamp used is essentially a single channel from our model 801R.
