  • 1Description

The m906 from Grace Design is a high-quality, rack-mountable 5.1 monitor controller perfect for use in any professional 5.1 playback system. In addition to providing full system integration and control, the m906 maintains incredibly transparent audio performance. The m906 main unit is housed in a sleek 2U enclosure and has a wide variety of analog and digital 5.1 inputs, including XLR, RCA, AES3, S/PDIF, ADAT, and TOSLink.

The wired remote provides full control of the system, including input source selection, solo and muting, speaker selection, main level and headphone level controls, and talkback control. The system also has s-Lock PLL for very low jitter clock regeneration. A rack-mountable external power supply is provided, keeping the audio circuitry as isolated as possible from the power supply.

    Grace Design m906 reviews

    m906 - High-Fidelity 5.1 Monitor Controller with Remote is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great solution for an in the box studio. I had wanted to go to a mixer-less recording environment for a while, but was hanging onto one for monitoring. I finally decided on the m906 for the combination of I/O and small footprint of the remote. The layout of the tabletop remote is straightforward and clean. The calibration settings are intuitive to both find and adjust. The inclusion of the talkback pedal switch is great when tracking. The sound quality is nothing other than what I would expect from Grace. I can't tell it's in the chain, as opposed to the mixer that I used to use. I've been using this product for about six months and have not had any issues. I haven't moved to 7.1 yet, but it would have been nice to have an upgrade option as the I/O could handle it.
