Excellent 2.1 Monitoring Solution!
Audio quality is completely transparent, exactly like it should be. If you have a high end audio interface you will hear everything exactly as it should be.
Cosmetically the unit is built like a tank. It is larger than I perceived it to be based on the photos. The black brushed steel chassis is very clean and professional in appearance. The "on" light is a nice blue color. The pictures don't do this unit justice. In person this unit looks very high end. The volume knob is silky smooth when turning and the buttons are very smooth to press. The built in talk back mic is a nice bonus. One of the main reason I purchased this unit is I wanted a professional, transparent monitoring system that supports two headphone outputs with independent headphone volume control and this unit delivers exactly that. Having the ability to monitor just Left, Right, or Mono, is also huge as Mono monitoring is often overlooked by many mix engineers.
I believe the only other major competitor worth looking at is for this quality and feature set is the Dangerous Music Monitor ST which is $2,000. The other Dangerous unit that is cheaper, called the Music Source, lacks feature parity with the Drawmer yet still costs more than the Drawmer. The only reason I could see going with the more expensive Dangerous Music Monitor ST is if you wanted 5.1 monitoring, which still requires an add on bringing the D-Box to more than $2,000. Otherwise, I can't foresee the ST being "better" than the Drawmer for 2.1 monitoring, just different.
Don't let the $599 price fool you into thinking this a low to mid-end monitoring system. It's entirely high end, professional, and the quality (both physically and sonically) is far superior to most monitoring systems.
