The 2Control Speaker and Monitoring Controller from SPL combines loudspeaker and headphone monitoring in a compact, designed to be easy to use, and high quality control device. Control near-field monitors, full-range speakers and headphone monitoring for two listeners from one central unit. This controller features a Crossfeed control which allows analysis of a stereo panorama on headphones just like with loudspeakers. The unit's concept is consequently based upon duality: Two channels, two sources, two loudspeaker sets, two headphones, hence, 2Control.
The advantages of an analog monitoring controller becomes especially apparent in combination with modern audio and video production tools such as ProTools, Nuendo, Cubase, Logic, Deck, etc. Monitor levels and source management can be handled independently of the software and with no loss in quality. You no longer need to set up additional aux sends for monitoring. In addition, you won't have to worry about over- or under-driving the converters when changing monitor levels. No bit changes during playback means no degradation is sound.
The concept of the 2Control is based on a dual-channel operation that allows for connection of two sources, two stereo speaker sets and two headphones. Each of the three speaker outputs (2 stereo sets, 1 x mono speaker) is driven by its own balancing stage to exclude signal-degrading mutual influences. Each headphone output is supplied by a separate amplifier to allow for completely independent operation of two headphones without any interaction from the other output (crosstalk).
The 2Control speaker volume potentiometer and active circuits correspond with the high demands in professional audio applications regarding sound quality and usability. In contrast to passive circuits, the 2Control's active designs are engineered to not influence impedances when levels change. Altering impedances would again have effects on the frequency response, so the 2Control's active design improves linearity.
Additionally there is often the need to "zoom" into audio material when listening to quiet passages or checking for artifacts etc. - and only active designs offer signal amplification.
Analog Volume Control for Your DAW
Analog vs. digital volume control for more natural sound
Two Headphone Amplifiers
Two separate headphone outputs
Crossfield Controls Control adjusts the stereo width on headphones to approximate speaker listening and compare to straight headphone listening
Extends the Range of Headphone Applications
Allows for analytical listening or alternative to speaker
Separate Mono Speaker Output
In addition to two stereo speaker sets you can also connect a mono speaker or a subwoofer.
Source and speaker output switches as well as mono and dim switches provide the main monitoring functions for a complete controller - without overloading the user interface and electronics.
