Sonifex’s RM-2S4.Irthlingborough, U.K. (April 17, 2008)–Sonifex has launched a series of three rackmount audio monitors, called the Reference Monitor range. The three units are the RM-2S4, RM-2S10 and RM-4C8.
The RM-2S4 features two LED meters and stereo channel audio inputs. The RM-2S10 also has two LED meters, but 10 stereo channel audio inputs. The RM-4C8 has four LED meters, eight channel inputs and dual selectors. Each one is a 1U rackmount unit offering loudspeaker monitoring and high-resolution metering of up to four or 10 stereo audio sources (more with the addition of an optional expansion card).
Sources may be in any mixture of analog and AES/EBU digital formats, with sample rates up to 192 kHz accepted, and a 5-band parametric EQ can be used to tailor the unit for the room in which it is mounted.
Managing director Marcus Brooke commented, “The Reference Monitor range of products is an exciting new venture for us, and we’ve been working really hard to produce some products which have exceptional sound quality and a comprehensive feature set as well as good looks in the rack. The addition of a 5-band parametric EQ to the units is a unique feature that allows you to alter the monitor’s response either to account for poor acoustics in the room that the monitor is mounted in, or to suit your particular listening tastes.”
