Rack-mounted Reference Monitors by Sonifex at 125th AES

Released by Sonifex at NAB 2008 and now being shown for the first time on booth 419 at the 125th AES Convention, San Francisco are the Reference Monitor range of 1U rack-mounted audio monitors. Each unit offers quality loudspeaker monitoring and accurate, high resolution metering of up to four or ten stereo audio sources. Complementing the Reference Monitor range are two new, high quality 1U rack-mount audio confidence monitors.
The RM-CA2 has two analogue stereo XLR inputs, one unbalanced RCA phono input and the same high quality three speaker system as the Reference Monitor range, with separate class-D amplifiers for each speaker. The unit has a front panel volume control, a balance control, stereo metering and a headphone output with source selector. The RM-CAD8 confidence monitor has all the features of the RM-CA2 together with 4 x AES/EBU, 1 x S/PDIF & 1 x TOSlink digital inputs.

There are also two new Dolby decode cards for use with the RM-4C8 Reference Monitor, which can take either AES/EBU or BNC digital audio and decode the Dolby E or Dolby Digital signal for monitoring purposes. The two cards are the RM-E1X and RM-E1B.
Managing Director Marcus Brooke commented: "Since their launch, the Reference Monitors have been extremely well received for the quality of their sound and also their outstanding feature set. They're easy to use and the added 5 band parametric EQ allows you to alter the monitor's response either to account for poor acoustics in the room that the monitor is mounted in, or to suit your particular listening tastes. "Some customers have asked for the same audio quality, but with less features, so this is what we've announced with the confidence monitors. They have the same excellent sound, but fewer features and a lower price."
The new confidence monitors will be displayed with a selection of other Redbox digital audio converters, word-clock, audio and headphone distribution amplifiers, microphone amplifiers, matching amplifiers, mixers, source select units, silence detect unit, limiters, a power controller and stereo to mono converters.
