For all headphones
The Phonitor x offers connections for standard headphones with a jack plug and for balanced headphones a 4-pin XLR connector. Thanks to the enormous output power of 18 watts, all headphones are driven effortlessly.
Headphones or Speaker
The OUTPUT switch turns the headphone amplifier into a preamplifier – simply switch from headphones to speakers and the selected source signal goes to both analog audio outputs, RCA and XLR. In the center position (mute), no signal reaches the outputs. The VU meters light up red.
To the power amplifiers
or to the active loudspeakers you can use the balanced XLR- for long, and the RCA sockets for short cable runs. Practical is the AMP CTL sockets to which power amplifiers with 12V trigger inputs can be connected to switch them on and off together with Phonitor x.
Milled from solid
is the big 45mm Volume control? Its mass together with the motorised Alps RK27 “Big Blue” potentiometer enhances the “spoon in the honey” feeling even further. The red marker LED makes the setting visible even in darkened environments.
The volume can be remotely controlled with any infrared remote control, that the Phonitor x simply learns. To do this, press the IR programming button and then the buttons for louder and quieter.
Good ol’ times
Two mechanical VU meters visualize the input levels for the left and right audio channel.
Finding the middle
is not always easy. By our very nature, hearing can be leaning more to the left or more to the right. This is especially obvious when listening with headphones.
That’s why Phonitor x has the uniquely finely resolved laterality control. With it, the center can be found perfectly.
With the mode switch, you can choose between stereo or mono playback. To the right, the laterality control is switched on.
