SPL launches monitor and headphone controller 2Control at 125th AES
|SPL launches a new member of its controller family at the 125th AES convention, San Francisco, booth 320. The 2Control combines speaker and headphone monitoring functions with innovative features in an attractive desktop outfit.
The fully analogue 2Control allows for connection and selection of two stereo sources, two stereo speaker sets and two headphones. A third mono speaker output can be used to feed a subwoofer. Speaker volume is controlled by a large, central volume knob. Each headphone output features a separate amplifier stage and can be controlled individually.
A unique feature is the 2Control's analogue Crossfeed control circuitry for headphone monitoring. It creates the frequency dependent interaural level differences between the stereo channels to generate a real speaker playback impression on headphones. This feature is derived from SPL's Phonitor, a 120V audio rail headphone monitoring amplifier. It enables the user to reliably produce and mix audio using headphones in environments where the use of loudspeakers is not possible.
The 2Control is scheduled for shipping in December 2008.
