The nerve center for today’s professional control room environment.
Monitoring is the most critical part of any studio set-up. Every decision made is based on what you hear, or what you don’t hear, through the monitor system. In today’s professional mastering and mixing rooms quality monitor control means an accurate, uncolored yet musical signal path with immediate and intuitive control. To put out high-quality work an engineer needs the ability to easily switch between multiple analog and digital sources as well as different sets of speakers, to recall level settings, and most critically to listen to the input source material through the same signal path. The Dangerous Monitor delivers all of this, and more.
• Superb sonic performance
• Unparalleled clarity, detail and resolution
• Mastering quality onboard D-to-A conversion
• Seamless switching between digital and analog sources
The Dangerous Monitor is the realization of 4 distinct functions, seamlessly integrated into one 2RU package: Analog switching, digital switching, onboard D to A conversion, and comprehensive mastering monitoring functions. There are separate products out
there that handle most of these tasks, but a system that elegantly integrates them into one package while delivering top-quality performance in all areas is a must for a focused control room in a competitive studio.
Specifically designed by mastering studio veterans to bring no-compromise monitor control to your studio, it’s stellar sound, straightforward ergonomics and uncompromising accuracy along with its mastering-quality D to A converter will finally let you hear what your tracks really sound like.
A perfect companion for the Dangerous MQ and 2-BUS - no professional studio should be without one.
• Analog and Digital Input Switching
• Stepped Attenuator Volume Control
• Comprehensive Mastering Monitoring Functions analog sources
The design team at Dangerous knows that while there are options for digital routing,conversion and analog switching available as stand-alone units, a system that integrates them in one package has not been available until now. The addition of comprehensive monitoring features -- along with stellar sound, unprecedented flexibility and ease of use -- makes the Dangerous Monitor an essential component of today's studio environment, and a perfect companion for the Dangerous 2-BUS.
