Lyons, CO (November 25, 2014)–Grace Design has introduced the m905 analog monitor controller. Based on the m905, this version offers same exact same design but is intended for users who already have digital to analog converters, but still need analog monitor selection and control.
The m905 Analog is configured with a 2U mainframe Audio Control Unit (ACU) and a sleek desktop Remote Control Unit (RCU). All audio connections are made on the ACU, and all system control is from the RCU. Analog inputs include 2 balanced via XLR, one unbalanced via RCA and one balanced CUE in via XLR. Outputs include 3 balanced speaker outputs via XLR, 2 subwoofer outputs via XLR, balanced CUE output via XLR.
All system status is displayed clearly on the LCD operating screen, while all system control is done with hardware switches and a large level knob. All monitoring features – volume, speaker selection, dim, mono, mute, L-R, solo, subwoofer mute / solo are all accessible on the RCU's front panel. Level readout is done with characters in .5 dB steps. A talkback feed is available with the built-in microphone on the RCU or via a built-in Grace Design mic preamp on the ACU. Additionally, the RCU main operating screen has a full-time SPL level meter, which is sourced from the built in microphone.
Grace has also announced the m905 IR Remote Option, which is available on new or existing units (Digital and Analog). This feature allows wireless infrared remote control of a select set of monitoring controls via the Grace Design Remote, a standard Apple Remote, or with iOS and Android via the Logitec Harmony Remote.
