SPL Phonitor 2
The headphone monitoring amp and preamplifier with Phonitor Matrix.
Phonitor 2 is the ultimate headphone amplifier for sound and mastering engineers who also mix and master on headphones. Speakers can also be connected, making Phonitor 2 a full-fledged monitor controller.
The SPL 120V technology makes the Phonitor 2 an outstandig device in terms of dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio and headroom – resulting in a pristine and absolutely relaxed listening experience.
With the optional Expansion Rack, the Phonitor 2 can be installed in a 19″ rack. This expands the Phonitor 2 with three more stereo outputs for additional speaker sets.
The recommended retail price for the Phonitor 2 is 1.799,00 € (including 19% German VAT).
Phonitor One d
The Audiophile Headphone Amplifier with innovative Phonitor Matrix, 32-bit DA-converter and outstanding sound quality.
The SPL Phonitor One d headphone amplifier allows high-quality monitoring of analog and digital sources. Thanks to the Phonitor Matrix with Crossfeed Control, you can create mixes that sound as if they were mixed on speakers.
An analog volume control, an aluminum front panel and a high-quality metal housing show that no compromises have been made in terms of quality. In addition, the highly acclaimed AKM AK4490 Velvet Sound™ premium DAC chip is used, which reproduces the finest sound details thanks to its new architecture. PCM playback at up to 768 kHz/32 bit and Direct Stream Digital to DSD4 playback leave nothing to be desired. A balanced stereo line output makes the Phonitor One d ideal for use as a stand-alone DAC.
The recommended retail price for the Phonitor One d is 649,00 € (including 19% German VAT).
The Audiophile Headphone Amplifier with innovative Phonitor Matrix and outstanding sound quality.
The SPL headphone amplifier Phonitor One is the entry model among the Phonitor headphone amplifiers.
It allows high-quality monitoring of analog sources. Thanks to the Phonitor Matrix with Crossfeed Control, you can create mixes that sound as if they were mixed on speakers.
An analog volume control, an aluminum front panel and a high-quality metal housing show that no compromises have been made in terms of quality.
The recommended retail price for the Phonitor One is 425,00 € (including 19% German VAT).
Music is normally produced and mixed for playback on stereo speakers. Listening on headphones is different from listening on loudspeakers. The biggest difference is the lack of crossing signals of the sound signal from the left speaker to the right ear and from the right speaker to the left ear. These crossing signals are missing in conventional headphone listening, because there are no signals crossing from one side of the headphones to the other. This results in an unnaturally wide stereo stage. Sound sources are not played back at their actual position in the stereo spectrum. The mix or mastering engineer hears a false representation of the stereo sound image through the headphones, making it dramatically more difficult to find the right decisions when mixing and mastering.
The SPL Phonitor Matrix can correct this false stereo image with an analog circuitry.
The two main parameters of the Phonitor Matrix are Crossfeed and Angle:
- Crossfeed determines the crossing signals of the channels.
- Angle determines the opening angle of the stereo image.
During conventional listening on headphones, our brain can compensate a certain level of false playback representation – but this is very exhausting and leads to listening fatigue.
The Phonitor Matrix not only ensures a correct representation of the stereo image, but also a relaxed listening experience. So nothing stands in the way of a successful and long mixing session on headphones.
