Makes me happy
Vincent Black, 27.07.2016
I've used a Presonus Central Station for many years now and it works great. At one point I had three pairs of monitors and headphones at my control room desk and the Central Station was perfect for managing everything quickly and easily. The various speakers can be switched with a press of a button, the "mute", "dim" and "mono" functions are also very helpful. This unit is of a solid build, the meter is great - responsive and accurate. I haven't used any other units of this type, but if I were to get a new one I would surely go back to this very same unit.

Great for the job

Great product and my number choice in monitor controllers. I just wish Presonus would ditch the awful external power wart and deliver these and all rack-mounted gear with a built-in transformer so all we need is a kettle plug running to power. This gripe costs it one star.

Die Presonus Central Station sollte meine alte Samson C-Contral austauschen. Also gekauft, umgestöpselt und angeschaltet... Der erste Eindruck ohne direkten Hörvergleich ließ mir mal direkt den Mund offen stehen.

Vorneweg kurz zu meiner Kette im Tonstudio:
Powermac, RME Fireface 800, Adam Audio A7 und Sub 8, dazu noch eine Consumer-Abhöre von Creative.

Was also beim Hören sofort auffiel war der viel präzisere Bass. So knackig und trocken und je nach Musik auf einmal wieder warm und voll. Insgesamt ist der Sound nun "in da face"!!! Super Auflösung. Klanglich hat sich die Anschaffung schon mal voll gelohnt.

Die Features sind für mich mehr als ausreichend, ich beschreibe sie später im Detail.

Bei der Verarbeitung habe ich nicht volle Punktzahl vergeben, da die kleineren Potis allesamt recht wackelig sind. Scheinbar sind sie nur durch die Leiterplatte fixiert und nicht über eine zusätzliche Führung. In der Preisklasse darf das ruhig perfekt sein. Im Sound gibt es auch nicht die volle Punktzahl, da sich die Balance bei sehr niedriger Lautstärke verschiebt.

Ansonsten voll empfehlenswert.
