SPL Iron and Phonitor 2 get the coveted Professional Audio “Editors Choice Award” 2015

Every year, the team behind Germany’s leading magazine for recording technology, Professional Audio, picks several products under the slogan “The Best of the Best”, bestowing them the “Editors Choice Award.” Our Phonitor mini was among last year’s (Editors Choice 2014) favorites. But now we are twice as happy, considering that not only one, but two of our products made it onto the 2015 list!

SPL IRON

“The IRON mastering compressor at the SPL stand really made lots of heads turn during this year’s Musikmesse (2015). But the IRON isn’t just a pretty face. Its designer, Wolfgang Neumann, has once again proved himself a whiz at his job, taking the concept of the tube compressor to another level, all for the sake of transparency, musicality and versatility. As part of the SPL high-end series, it obviously features the proprietary 120-volt technology and achieves the reduction in dynamics by means of two tubes connected in parallel. The possibility to choose from among six different diode networks to make the IRON adopt distinct compressor characters is one-of-a-kind. It’s simply awesome, unrivaled and unquestionably worthy of an Editors Choice Award.”

SPL Phonitor 2

“The second version of the unique SPL headphone amp also made into the Editors Choice. With its in-house developed 120-volt technology, new features and, especially, its monitor playback emulation with headphones, the Phonitor is simply unmatched in its category. Particularly stunning is its utterly pleasant sound, which guarantees relaxed and long listening sessions while delighting fans of analog sounds.”
