        Personus did it right! The only thing I was using my space hog counsel for was monitor control and headphones...its history now! The Presonus Monitor Station is laid out perfect and has all the inputs I'll ever need. 4 headphone jack with individual volume controls is real handy. I even have my turntable plugged directly in. I don't think they missed anything. This is the first Presonus piece I have bought, impressive company.

            I found it to be very user friendly and quite intuitive. Is well built and robust although it could use an extra input dedicated to your DAW main mix. Quite happy with this purchase

            Comments about PreSonus Monitor Station Desktop Studio Control Center:

            The system is fairly straightforward with controls and I/O clearly labeled. I highly recommend you look through the manual because there are some not-so-obvious features. The main thing is input attenuation to properly calibrate the built-in LED VU meter. This is set by pressing and holding one of the 3 "Cue" buttons while powering up. Unfortunately, I was not able to get it to accurately track any of the professional sound sources I connected. You cannot adjust the 2 balanced inputs individually. Therefore, you shouldn't rely on these meters for critical level monitoring.
            The box seems rugged, but the main disappointment is the flimsy volume control. It is a lightweight knob on a not-so-solidly-attached pot. The shaft wiggles quite a lot. One would think a monitor controller would have a solid knob with good heft and feel, but that's not the case. Since you will be twisting this often, I don't have much confidence in its longevity. I wouldn't take it on the road.
            The illuminated pushbuttons work well and allow you to select from 2 balanced (TRS) and 1 unbalanced (RCA) source, individually or any combination. You can choose how these buttons operate by pressing and holding one of the 3 "Speaker" buttons to select toggle or combo modes.
            You can adjust the input level from the unbalanced input, but not the balanced inputs as I mentioned earlier. The unbalanced input can also be set as a phono stage so you can enjoy your vinyl.
            The unit features a built-in talkback mic, with provision for an external mic if you choose. You can connect up to 3 individually-controlled speaker systems, 4 headsets, and a cue channel.

                This by far one of the most versatile Monitor management systems on the market. It is extremely quiet and the routing is excellent at a price that will send competing products back to the drawing board.
