(click thumbnail)RM2S4Sonifex will present a series of three rack-mount monitors called the Reference Monitor range. It says the inclusion of a five-band parametric EQ allows the user to alter the monitor’s response to account for poor acoustics in the room that the monitor is mounted in, or to suit particular listening tastes.
The three products in the range are the RM-2S4 reference monitor, featuring two LED meters and four stereo channel audio inputs; RM-2S10 with two LED meters and 10 stereo channel audio inputs; and RM-4C8 with four LED meters, eight channel inputs and dual selectors.
Each 1U rack-mount unit offers loudspeaker monitoring and high-resolution metering of up to four or 10 stereo audio sources (more with the addition of an optional expansion card). Sources can be a mixture of analog and AES/EBU digital formats with sample rates up to 192 kHz accepted, and a five-band parametric EQ can be used to tailor the unit for the room it is mounted in.
Sources are selected via a front-panel rotary encoder with LED indication of the current selection. A pair of line-level audio outputs, configurable as analog or AES/EBU digital, follow the selected source at either a fixed level or one mirroring the loudspeaker volume.
Six illuminated pushbuttons provide access to a range of audio “modifiers” for instant dimming of the volume, muting of each audio channel, stereo-to-mono conversion, phase inversion and Middle+Side transcoding.
