Powerful Studio Monitor Control

Master your monitors like the pros with the PreSonus Monitor Station V2. You get control of speaker selection, main and cue output sources, and a reliable central level meter you can easily calibrate to suit your studio. You can switch between three sets of speaker outputs with individual level control to audition mixes. The V2's four headphone outputs with level control let you route cue mixes to tracking musicians while you monitor the main mix in your control room speakers. With an updated workflow and bright LED lighting, PreSonus made the Monitor Station V2 a value packed essential for your studio.

PreSonus Monitor Station V2 at a Glance:
  • Versatile inputs ready for your gear
  • Output routing and flexibility puts you in control
  • Cues- talkback here too. and mobile
Versatile inputs ready for your gear

The input section of the V2 has you covered with two sets of stereo TRS inputs that are ready for gear, like your interface or analog summing mixer. The Aux input section has stereo RCA connections for things like drum machines and an 1/8" input for handheld recorders or your phone. And now, the Monitor Station is more useable than ever - the V2 includes a S/PDIF input for using the digital output of your studio gear, something the engineers at Sweetwater are very excited about!

Output routing and flexibility puts you in control

Three sets of stereo outputs with individual level control put total monitoring flexibility in your hands. Feed three different stereo studio monitor pairs, or two sets of speakers and a subwoofer, or whatever your heart desires. Imagine being able to easily switch between your near- and farfield speakers with the press of a button or engage all of your monitoring power at once and hear what that mix sounds like loud! You'll find your way to the main controls quite easily with the V2's intuitive work flow. Control what you hear with main volume knob, mute button, source selections, and a stereo/mono toggle. And with its own source selection section for the main outputs, the V2 lets you send whatever you want, right where you need it.

Professional monitoring solutions for tracking sessions

As if wrangling your monitor speakers wasn't enough, PreSonus features four channel of headphone outputs on the V2, giving you a Monitor Station built for all of your session-monitoring needs. Select between your input sources in the cues to give the drummer a click track and the rest of the band a click-less mix. The onboard talk back mic has a dim button and level knob so you can stay in the ears of your players. If four cue channels aren't enough for your tracking needs, use the dedicated "Cue" output to feed another headphone amplifier easily. The stereo cue output and each headphone send has its own level knob. And all of this control in a desktop package small enough for mobile recording rigs!

PreSonus Monitor Station V2 Features:
  • Main volume mute, and mono control for three sets of balanced TRS speaker outputs each with fine level adjustment
  • 4 loud and clear headphone amplifiers with separate volume control and independent input source selection for tracking sessions
  • Onboard Talkback microphone with volume control to feed cue output and dim control for professional monitoring
  • Calibratable dual 8-segment LED lets you see your audio
  • Toggle between auxiliary and S/PDIF inputs with individual level controls

Great product!!!!!!

I have nothing but great things to say about this product. This is the cheapest monitor station that "will not" color your mix. I'd recommend if your audio card is nearby, then buy two short balanced cables. It's well built and simply plug and play.

Perfect Monitoring Solution

Amazing I/O routing possibilities. Sound wise it is completely noiseless, it doesn't add or take away anything from your sound. I use a pair of HS80's and an old pair of Event 8" monitors and a KRK 10" sub. I especially like that I can solo my sub and monitor the low frequencies.

Awesome Product

The Presonus Monitor Station V2 is exactly what I was looking for. Very sturdy product. My Presonus E5s are plugged into this. Works great. People at Sweetwater answered all my questions.

Love This Product

I love the PreSonus Monitor Station V2. I own a radio showprep/audio service and having the best equipment is a must. You can't go wrong with PreSonus. Our studio is equipped with all kinds of PreSonus "stuff." Thank you Sweetwater for answering all of my questions. You guys are great!

PreSonus Monitor Station V2

I owned the older Monitor Station and it blew up, well, it started to put out total noise and it had seen a few unfortunate accidents, so I knew it was on borrowed time. I decided after much research to go with the V2 as I was happy with the first, features, price and all of that. While waiting, I hooked my Dynaudio 5s straight out of my MetricHalo 2882 and wow, it was like a mask had been removed, I didn't notice how much the signal had be altered all theses years by the monitor controller. I still needed the functions of my old Monitor Control, and I figured that if the new one came and the sound was again "masked", I could send it back and bite the bullet and go for something more high end. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that this new controller is much more transparent than the first version, so much so that I'm sold. It is not the most high end or sexy piece of gear but it works well, sound like it's not there and has 4 decent headphone outs right on the unit. Talkback and source/speaker selection are wonderful and right on my desk, so for 300 bucks you're set to go.

Sweetwater Advice

Tyler Berggren

When I wanted a cost-effective monitor control option that wouldn't get in the way sonically or physically, the PreSonus Monitor Station was definitely a solid choice. I love having the ability to switch between monitors on a whim and the real special sauce is the controllable dim function. There is no better way to wrap your head around a mix then by comparing your balances at lower volumes. One button push and I can bounce between my normal listening level and my "hyper detail" quieter mode. The best part of the Monitor Station - it doesn't change the response of my monitors at all.
