Small Size, Big Sound
Crystal Clear Audio with a Dual Subwoofer Design
The Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G has been designed using the latest advanced audio analysis technology to create a wide and smooth frequency response curve with crisp highs and powerful deep bass. You get great sounding music, extremely clear voice tracks and all the detail of effects tracks. Blackmagic Audio Monitor 12G is powerful and loud enough to hear your audio in noisy environments, such as broadcast equipment rooms that have a lot of cooling fan noise.

Precision Metering
Know Your Audio Levels at all Times
The two big bright audio level meters on the front panel feature multi coloured RGB LEDs under each segment. You can select between VU or PPM or Loudness scales with a choice of EBU or BBC meters. With lots of meter segments you can monitor a very wide dynamic range, from -45 to +3 decibels, -12 to +12, or 0 to 7, depending on the scale you choose. In addition you can meter Loudness using standard Loudness, K-weighted, relative to Full Scale (LKFS) to normalize of levels for delivery to broadcast TV and video. The bright audio level meters are always clear enough to read, no matter if you are working in bright or dark environments.

Machined Metal Design
Milled From Solid Aluminum For Sound Free Of Vibrations
The machined metal design is attractive as well as extremely strong, which means you get a robust chassis that's vital for better quality sound without rattles and vibrations. The elegant front panel features audio level meters, LCD video monitor and a reliable contactless volume control, so you never get deterioration and crackling in the audio when adjusted. To select audio pairs, left and right solo, mute and input, there is a built in illuminated keypad and for private monitoring there is a built in headphone socket.
