Why does this fully passive studio monitor switcher come with a power supply? Because it also includes a handy headphone amp on board.
Quickly select between reference monitors, sub woofer or headphones and compare how the mix translates via various playback systems. Easy switch to quickly sum mono for AM radio compatibility. If you've got a couple (or three) sets of studio monitors, this is an excellent tool to navigate easily.
- Passive studio monitor switcher with headphone amp
- Control two sets of monitors and sub woofer
- Mono sum for AM radio compatibility and phase check
- Individual 'set & forget' controls to fine tune levels
The MC3 features an easy access level control that lets you quickly set playback levels on all speakers. Each output is equipped with a top-mount 'set & forget' dial to fine tune outputs for the ideal balance. The sub is augmented with a 180 degree polarity reverse to help deal with room modes that may cause a frequency bump in the mix position. A separate Dim switch is also adjustable to enable the engineer to temporarily drop the playback level without affecting the mix level settings. To address the ever increasing popularity of ear buds, the Radial MC3 is equipped with a built-in headphone amplifier with stereo 3.5mm (1/8" TRS) output along with two standard 1/4" headphone phone outs to share. The MC3 may be configured for either balanced or unbalanced setups.
