    Mackie BIG KNOB PASSIVE reviews

    Big Knob Passive Studio Monitor Controller is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just What I Needed I edit videos for corporations and non-profits. I needed something simple, high quality and small to control volume and switch between input sources. The Mackie Big Knob passive fit my needs perfectly. I've used the original Big Knob in the past, but it would overkill for my home edit system with a BlackMagic Design Intensity Pro interface and KRK Rockit 5 monitors. If you have self powered speakers and an audio/video interface without a volume control, the Mackie Big Knob Passive is what you need. Transparent sound control and dead simple to set up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed. I bought this because I wanted to connect both my turntable and my Focusrite 2i2 interface to my KRK Rokit powered monitors. I was previously connecting the output of my phono preamp to the two inputs on my interface and flipping the direct monitor switch; before long I realized that the interface's direct monitor wasn't panning the channels left and right, so everything was being played mono. I also didn't want to plug the output of my phono stage directly into my monitors, because then I wouldn't be able to control the volume (save for the inconvenient level controls on the back of each speaker). I was considering purchasing a cheap mixer at the same price point, but was worried it might degrade the audio quality. This turned out to be the perfect solution, and it made an immediate improvement to my vinyl listening. It accommodates both the unbalanced output of my phono stage (stereo RCA to TS cable), as well as the balanced output from my interface (stereo TRS to TRS)—just had to make sure I got the right cables.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid little unit so far For the price it's a bargain. Simple to setup and use. The only thing I'd like is for more of a height difference between up and down positions, and LEDs to light up the three function buttons that have an on/off state.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the Thing My Big Knob unit controls the output from a CD player for input to a 100 WPC amplifier. It is perfect for that application, where the full functions of a preamp, say, are not needed. Beautifully straightforward.
