Dangerous Music’s Monitor ST Stereo delivers an audiophile-grade multi-purpose monitor controller for tracking, mixing and mastering that won’t colour your sound. The Monitor ST, designed by the well-reputed Chris Muth, fulfils all of your input sources, speaker switching, cue, talkback and headphone needs, all in a 1U-sized package with crystal clarity. Five input sources, three speaker outputs, a stepped attenuator, programmable I/O levels, dedicated subwoofer out and more – all accessed through an elegant remote control – mean that you will never leave the sweet spot while handling all your studio routing, effortlessly. The Monitor ST is so accurate, clear and flexible you’ll see its remote atop the world’s best consoles.
With the advent of “prosumer” gear, the monitoring path is typically sacrificed to meet a price point. Even some of the world’s most revered and expensive large-format consoles have less-than-accurate centre sections that obscure sound. To solve these problems, Dangerous Music made zero compromises in producing the Monitor ST, employing industry leading components in an unreservedly transparent design. Whether you’re working in a project studio or managing complex monitor routing in a multi-room studio, the Monitor ST will provide the most precise and dependable monitoring available on the market.
Not all volume controls are created equal – some affect frequency response at different levels, some introduce noise, some rely on tone-snatching digital level controls. the Monitor ST’s volume control is a relay-actuated stepped analogue attenuator made from top-shelf components, expertly implemented into Chris Muth’s uncompromising analogue signal path. From the remote’s elegantly-shaped knob, you’ll get crystal clear sonics with dead-accurate volume level recalls and better than 0.01dB gain tracking between channels. Whether that’s blasting playback through the mains or squinting at small monitors at whisper volumes, the Monitor ST will never colour your sound or skew your stereo image. Audio signals are delivered to speakers unadulterated, removing all the guesswork while tracking, mixing or mastering because all the switching within the Monitor ST is handled by relays.
As the centrepiece of your studio, the Dangerous Music Monitor ST delivers sophisticated routing elegantly. There are four analogue inputs, three speaker outputs, plus a stereo subwoofer output with programmable level offset and filter that can be assigned to any of the three speaker pairs (or used for a fourth pair of studio monitors). Capable of being recalled instantly for different devices and configurations, all of these ins and outs can be custom calibrated with on-board, programmable level offsets. The talkback mic, slate output and robust 20w/channel headphone amplifier finish the full house of routing needs for any studio.
