When the studio has moved from a small setup to something a little larger, it might be time to take full control of your monitor setup.
Central Station Plus is perfect for running your rig, your way.
You mostly monitor on near-fields, but occasionally switch to big main speakers or a second set of near-fields. You need to be able to switch between multiple sources and want to hear what your mix sounds like with and without subwoofer. You want to monitor straight from digital sources as well as analog. And you don’t want cables cluttering your workspace in order to achieve all that.
On the back of the rackmountable Central Station, you get three sets of Speaker outputs, a set of Main outputs, and a set of Cue outputs.
There are inputs via TRS1 (2 inputs), TRS2 (2 inputs) and Aux (RCA), along with your digital options of SPDIF or TOSLINK.
To help even further with a smooth workflow and less clutter, the fully functioned CSR-1 remote is included, with an elegant desktop slope.
Metering on the front panel of Central Station is by way of dual 30-segment, tri-colored, fast-acting, peak-hold LED meters, which can display dBu and dBfs. A ‘clear’ switch lets you clear the peak-hold.
Central Station meters are accurate within 0.25 dB and can detect signals within a frequency range of 10 Hz to 22 kHz. You can (and should) calibrate the meters to match your DAW or other audio device.
