The MONITOR1 Premium Passive Stereo Monitor and Volume Controller takes the analog signal to the next level, putting high-resolution audio level control right at your fingertips. With no active circuitry or digital artifacts to color the sound, you can instantly adjust the level of your active studio monitors. The large volume knob makes it easy to dial-in the perfect level every time, without having to reach for your mixer – or your mouse! With XLR/TRS combo Inputs and XLR Outputs, as well as two 3.5 mm (1⁄8″) jacks, MONITOR1 is ultra-easy to connect to your current system – and it is so affordable.
Although it sounds contradictory, the MONITOR1 is totally passive, meaning external power is not required and there is no active circuitry to affect the purity of the analog signal coming from your mixer or audio interface. MONITOR1 doesn’t get in the way of your sound source, and will not add any distortion or RF interference to your system. So whether you’re recording in your bedroom or laying down tracks at a professional recording studio, MONITOR1 makes sure the volume is always exactly where you need it – when you need it. And when it’s time for a break, just press the convenient Mute button to turn the sound completely off.
Small knobs make for low precision. Conversely, the bigger the knob is, the higher the precision. Think of a knob as a circle. On a small circle/knob, the distance from one degree to the next is very small, making it difficult to dial-in perfection. On MONITOR1’s big knob, the distance between degrees of the circle is much larger, allowing you to make high-precision adjustments with ease. MONITOR1’s bigger knob helps you set levels fast and accurately.
