Dangerous Music Monitor ST Stereo Monitor Control System

The measure of a successful mix is consistency: it must translate across multiple mediums like the radio, an iPod, home hi-fi, a car stereo... Therefore, a monitor solution must be transparent and musical to deliver. Modular Stereo Monitor Control Designed for the 21st Century.  Monitoring is the most crucial stage in the audio chain. An inferior system facilitates poor mix decisions by forcing the engineer to compensate for limitations. For example, if transients are choked by cheap components and design shortcuts, the unnecessary high end added to a mix will sound harsh on other playback devices.
