SPL Volume 8
8-channel Volume Controller
The Volume 8 is a fully analog, 8-channel volume controller and a puristic surround preamplifier.
It focusses on analog monitor leveling an sports a Mute switch that in case of a computer crash protects your speakers, headphones and ears.
As a cost-effective alternative to our full-featured surround monitoring controllers SMC and SMC the Volume 8 focusses on the high quality active volume control. Users who do not need additional monitoring functionality will find the Volume 8 an cost-effective solution without compromises for 5.1 and 7.1 surround monitoring.
The advantages of the Volume 8 become especially apparent in combination with DAW based audio and video production systems.
When changing the volume in the DAW the converters will be operating at a lower bit rate. 6dB reduction of the monitoring level is equivalent to 1 Bit less resolution. We are monitoring on an average of -24dB to -36dB below 0dBfs which means that the bit resolution is diminished by 4-6 Bits.
With the Volume 8 this does not affect you. It uses a high quality 8-gang potentiometer to control in the analog domain.
The Volume 8 circuitry is an active design rather than a passive one. For a very good reason. When changing the volume in a passive design the impedance change affects the phase and frequency response negatively. An active design is therefore much more accurate and the far better solution.
