“Volume2 is an active pre-amp using high-quality balancing stages. With extremely good common-mode rejection it diminishes interference and keeps everything accurate and in check.”

“The SPL Volume2 came to me on a recommendation of a friend who runs her own studio in Dorset, UK. Although she also used other monitor controls on occasion, this monitor was always the one she used for reference.”
Features and benefits:
“The SPL Volume2 is very simple. It’s basically a balanced pre-amp control. No bells ‘n’ whistles. This is exactly what I was looking to try out for recording with my Reel to Reel.”
“A control knob…. oh, and a mute button. That’s about it, visually.”
“The mute switch is handy if your DAW decides to play a section of invalid memory. Not a nice sound and it’s certainly not good either for your ears, your speakers or any other equipment. So the mute button is there to give the user an option to cut the sound without adjusting a finely tuned volume.”
“With 4 substantial rubber feet it sits firmly on the surface and remains nice and solid. No flexible panels, no rattles, no nasty ringing (if tapped). Just very strong and quite unlike a lot of the tin-box type units out there.”
“But why use this? Well, reducing the volume to a very low level using the master control on your DAW reduces the resolution slightly. With this unit, that doesn’t happen.”
“To conclude. The SPL Volume 2 is an essential bit of kit. The sound and build quality of this little thing will put a smile on your face.”
