Hub of my monitor set-up
Sonicsyringe, 19.01.2017
This is a very flexible monitor controller. With my last soundcard (DIDGI-002) found D-sub was a slight pain, but with new one (Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt, it makes life a doddle (once the outputs are reassigned in the Apogee - this is weird design on behalf of Apogee rather than SPL). I have two sets of surround inputs (DVD and Soundcard) that I can easily switch between and on the output side, several pairs of stereo monitors as well as my surround set up; I do need to use an extra switch beyond the SPL, as there is only the choice of surround and one extra set of stereo monitors here. It's handy to be able to switch the channels in and out in surround to isolate what's going on in each speaker. I find the sound remarkably transparent at this price point. On the downside, there is a slight stereo mismatch on the very lowest ranges of the knob, and I did have to get a capacitor replaced on one of the stereo inputs. I had never used this input before and so don't know if it left the factory like that. Unfortunately the warranty ran out just before I discovered the fault, so I don't know what SPL's support would have been like.

Für 5.1 gibt es keine Alternative
René aus A., 15.02.2014
Wie man es von SPL gewohnt ist, stimmt die Qualität hinten und vorne perfekt.

Die wählbaren Ein- und Ausgangsmöglichkeiten sind optimal für die Steuerung von 5.1- und Stereoabhörsystemen.

Kleiner Knopfdruck und das Signal wird genau da rein und da raus geschickt, wie man es möchte!

Das Gerät hat zwar einen recht stolzen Preis, aber die Qualität zahlt sich aus!

Das fehlende Glied
Till v., 03.11.2009
Dieser Lautstärkeregler ist das fehlende Bindeglied zwischen einer DAW mit hochwertiger Soundkarte und den angeschlossenen Sourround-Lautsprechern. Mit dem tollen, großen Drehknopf kann man gefühlvoll und direkt die gewünschte Abhörlautstärke regeln, ohne per Maus in der jeweiligen Software den Masterfader zu suchen! Die Qualität ist bei diesem Gerät spl-typisch hervorragend.

Tut seinen Dienst gut. Verarbeitungs Punktabzug durch den Knopf des Potis: Schraube muss durch nicht 100%ige Passgenauigkeit gelegentlich nachgezogen werden.
Die Source-Schaltung könnte übersichtlicher sein. Einstellungen sind nicht immer spontan erkennbar. Ansonsten aber schön analog.
