Extended Versatility.

The Monitor ST has become the audio gold standard for mix and mastering engineers around the globe.

But it gets even better.

Assemble the configuration as desired. Go from stereo to surround, add video switching, digital conversion or custom functions. Need to control a Studer A827 transport?* No problem. Can be customized to control any RS232 capable device.

The most comprehensive monitor control system in the world.

Each expansion rack supports up to 2 modules, with a maximum of 4 modules per system.  Need mastering-quality D to A conversion with multiple inputs and digital input switching?  Need to run several computer systems from one monitor? The Additional Switching System delivers.

DAC-ST

Note: Discontinued Legacy Product

Expand the Monitor ST with Reference Grade D/A Conversion 

The Dangerous DAC-ST provides accurate and pristine D/A conversion to the Monitor ST. Utilizing the same Monitor remote, instantly switch between 4 different sources. Only instantaneous switching through the same D/A can provide truly accurate comparisons. For example, when comparing a mix against a commercial CD, are the mixes or the converters being A/B’d?

  • 4 AES/SPDIF Inputs on the Rear and One RCA SPDIF Input on the Front
  • Thru Outputs on all Inputs – Simultaneously Monitor a Source While Sending it on to Another Destination
  • Glitch-Free Switching Between Sources: Even at Different Sample Rates from 32kHz to 192kHz
  • Selected Digital Out : Follows the Selected Digital Ouput for a Digital Meter or External Recorder
  • Level Calibration Trims – Align the DAC-ST to Any Studio Reference Level (there is no standard!)

All four rear panel digital inputs accept AES or SPDIF formats and have active Thru outputs to route these inputs to other devices. The front panel hosts a SPDIF input for quick connection of portable players, beat boxes or keyboards endowed with a SPDIF output. Avoid crawling behind your rack with a flashlight between your teeth.

  • Mastering Grade Reference D/A Conversion

The measure of a successful mix is consistency: it must translate across multiple mediums like the radio, an iPod, home hi-fi, a car stereo… Therefore, the D/A converter must be transparent and musical to deliver. The DAC-ST guarantees coherent, uncolored transmission.

 

DAC-SR

Note: Discontinued Legacy Product Mastering Reference 5.1 D to A Conversion with AES, SPDIF, ADAT and Stereo Optical Input Source Switching Like it’s brother the DAC-ST, the Dangerous DAC-SR delivers the same pristine, superbly accurate mastering quality D to A conversion, instantly accessed from the Monitor ST remote. Integrated digital source switching allows you to monitor all digital sources through the same converter, which is crucial for critical listening, confidence monitoring and level matching. Monitor all your digital sources through the same world-class D/A 4 rear panel inputs- 2x AES/SPDIF, 2 ADAT Optical Thru Outputs on inputs 1-2 – simultaneously monitor a source while sending it on to another destination Glitch-Free switching between sources, even at different sample rates Stereo optical format available on input 4 via front panel switch 32 kHz-192 kHz lock range Level Calibration Trims – align DAC-SR to your studio reference level Easily and instantly compare several digital surround sources, whether on AES, SPDIF or Toslink feeds. Monitor your stereo optical outputs of your computer via the Input 4 Stereo option on the front panel, thus bypassing the substandard internal D/ A converter in your computer. Life is good. Being a professional D/A like DAC-ST, you can calibrate DAC-SR to match your chosen studio reference level via the internal trims.
