Excellent monitor switch and volume control
25.07.2015
Top quality product. Lets you switch between two pairs of monitors, and set the comparative level between them. Converts between balanced and unbalanced connections, so if one of your monitor pairs is for example Yamaha NS-10s or Auratones, and you power these with a power amp with unbalanced inputs (most home stereo amps)?this is not a problem.

There are Mono and Dim switches, and three headphone outputs. A Sub output which can be polarity inverted and has an individual level setting.

No audible noise, and very transparent.

Idee gut...
19.08.2014
...Umsetzung schlecht.
Der Monitorcontroller ist von aussen sehr robust. Das Metalgehäuse weckt vertrauen und auch die Buchsen sitzen fest.
Die Lautstärkepoti lassen sich sehr angenehm fahren.
Zwei Paare lassen sich symmetrisch oder asymmetrisch an den Controller hängen und diese auch mit einem "Level Adjustment" anpassen.
Er klingt gut, färbt nicht und lässt das NF sauber an die Lautsprecher weiter. Das große Problem ist, dass das untere Drittel des Lautstärkepotis der Lautsprecher den Pegel nie gleich an beide Lautsprecher weiter gibt. Erst ab ca. der Hälfte werden die LS mit gleichem Pegel beschickt. Das Gerät wurde von Thomann überprüft und es konnte kein Fehler festgestellt werden. Recherche im Internet brachte die Erkenntnis. Das ist bei dem MC3 leider so.

Ich werde wohl demnächst auf den Drawmer MC 2.1 umsteigen.
Radial bleibt aber trotzdem eine super DI-Boxen Firma.

Control de monitoring avec Metric Halo 2882
OlivierV, 17.09.2012
De fabrication très robuste, comme tous les autres produits RADIAL, le MC-3 apporte bon nombre d'options de calibrage qui s'avèrent être très fonctionnels. La taille du produit permet de le mettre dans 1/2 Rack 1U. La qualité générale de ce produit est bien au dessus d'un "SM Pro Audio M-Patch2" par exemple. Seul bémol: le signal envoyé au casque ne passe pas par un réglage de TRIM et nous oblige à changer le volume générale pour compenser le niveau utiliser pour les moniteurs de proximité (le réglage de volume casque n'étant plus très précis dans les réglages minimum)... Je l'utilise en sortie d'une Metric Halo 2882 pour gérer le monitoring tout en ayant des potards sous la main et aussi pour rajouter un TRIM important avant les moniteurs. En effet, la Metric Halo 2882 possède un niveau de sortie très élevé qu'il est conseillé d'atténuer en analogique (pad ou TRIM). Le MC-3 joue parfaitement ce rôle. Un très bon moyen de contrôler ces moniteurs mais qui reste un peu cher...
