Handful device for controlling several monitors
Pat WILMART, 14.10.2020
Handful device for controlling several monitors.
Very versatile with 3 IN's and 3 OUT's.
Personally I mainly play with the OUT's since my Mackie 24/8 analog mixer does the routing work for cue monitoring.
Just a warning, make sure your output gain is set to 0 or your monitors to off when switching on the Palmer Monicon because there is a short burst at that time (confirmed to be a normal behaviour by the constructor to Thomann staff).

Big letdown compared to the Monicon
Vince Watson, 29.09.2020
Had high hopes for this, but it's terrible.

The case is loose on the sides, so first impressions were not good.

Now I've been using it for a few weeks, and there is so much noise coming from the inputs, ive had enough...

Poor!

Précisément ce que je cherchais
Knolles, 02.02.2020
J'ai longtemps hésité à upgrader mon vieux monitor controller Nano Patch, tout simplement parce que je ne trouvais rien à mes besoins, soit trop limités, soit trop grands et chers, soit trop de fonctions inutiles sur une surface trop restreinte. Quand j'ai vu le Monicon XL, je l'ai même commandé avant qu'il était disponible. Certains critiquent le design, moi j'aime bien le look retro. Super facile à utiliser et toutes le fonctions accessibles avec une seule touche de bouton. Les trois fonctions les plus importantes pour moi, y sont, à savoir mute, dim (réglable!) et mono et se trouvent autour du gros bouton volume. Le toucher est très agréable et toutes les touches sont illuminées quand actifs. L'indicateur de corrélation est une fonction tout à fait unique dans les controlleur de cette classe. Point de vu son, je ne remarque pas de différence de son par rapport à un branchement des moniteurs sans controller. Le seul problème que j'ai est le fait que le son est très hot (vu-mètre en permanence au rouge) sur l’entrée coaxiale auquel j'ai branché un lecteur Cd. Mais du coup je ne saurai pas dire si c'est la faute au controlleur au plutôt au lecteur Cd.

Das Bessere ist der Feind des Guten
Steff-Bär, 25.05.2021
Klasse Controller, kann man nix sagen. Aber warum soll man die maximalen fünf Sterne vergeben, wenn man sinnvolle Verbesserungsvorschläge machen kann (muß)? Vielleicht liest das ja jemand von Palmer...

Vorteile:
+ Bedienung und Konfiguration: deppensicher, also auch für mich geeignet ;)
+ Sicht auf die Anzeigen: astrein, weil leicht zum Betrachter geneigt
+ gut zu bedienende Tasten, angenehme Haptik aufgrund des verwendeten Materials
+ 40 Euro günstiger als die fast baugleiche Presonus Monitor Station V2

Verbesserungsbedürftig:
- Der Lautstärkeregler sollte beleuchtet sein, GAANZ wichtig!
- Die Seitenteile dürften ruhig etwas wertiger sein, vielleicht aus Holz?
- Der Hammer wäre eine Staubschutzabdeckung aus Acryl, das wäre mir einen Aufpreis von 20 Euro wert
