This amp provides transparent performance at all volume levels. Its 120-volt operation delivers ample headroom, astonishing dynamic range, and an ultra-low noise floor. The Phonitor Matrix mode uses spatial processing to give you a loudspeaker-like listening experience with headphones, and switchable signal levels allow you to calibrate for virtually any headphones or monitor speakers. With three input sources, versatile metering, and helpful signal controls, the SPL Phonitor 2 is a capable monitor amp for any system.
SPL Phonitor 2 Headphone/Monitor Amplifier at a Glance:
Wide dynamic range and ample headroom thanks to 120V operation
The Phonitor 2 employs SPL-designed op-amps that operate at 120 volts, resulting in an amazing 150dB of dynamic range. The noise floor is virtually nonexistent. Transients come through without any loss of detail, presence, or spatial reference. You'll hear every nuance in your recordings, and the high headroom means you'll hear the same level of sonic accuracy at any volume level.
Phonitor Matrix gives you a loudspeaker-like monitoring experience with headphones
You'll be able to use your headphones more effectively when you monitor through the SPL Phonitor 2. The Phonitor Matrix re-creates the spacial effects of listening on stereo loudspeakers (listening angle and crosstalk between left and right channels) in your headphones. Recording engineers at Sweetwater know that headphones are a great tool for magnifying edit points, unwanted clicks and pops, fades, and other details in your recordings. For this type of editing, turn off the Phonitor Matrix spatial processing. Then turn the Phonitor Matrix mode on when you're ready to make adjustments to panning, EQ, effects sends and other mixing tasks. The realistic stereo imaging of the Phonitor Matrix mode will allow you to achieve better mixing results than you otherwise would with headphones.
Control volume with any infrared remote control
For remote volume control, the SPL Phonitor 2 is ready to work with virtually any infrared remote control. The remote circuit uses a motor to physically control the volume pot, so your audio signal remains in the analog domain the entire time - no loss of dynamic range or sonic detail.
Flexible I/O and signal levels for easy integration into your system
For studio monitoring, the SPL Phonitor 2 is ready to interface with a wide range of gear. You've got two pairs of XLR inputs and a pair of RCA inputs, for a total of three input sources. The RCA inputs can be toggled between -10dBV (consumer level) and +4dBu (pro level). A pair of XLR outputs on the rear panel can be used to drive powered speakers, a power amplifier, or headphone distribution system. The headphone output is conveniently placed on the front panel.
