Audiolinear Axis Passive Desktop Monitor Controller – No Longer Available

Zero-compromise passive desktop monitoring controller designed and built by hand in England

Product Description

The Audiolinear Axis is a high-end desktop monitor controller that is 100% passive in design. With zero active electronics, the AXIS ensures the most transparent signal path possible without any worry of signal interference or distortion in the monitor path.

The main monitor control dial is a Swiss made, ultra high quality 24 step attenuator that is 64 mm in diameter. From 0 to -30 dB, the attenuator moves in 2 dB steps. From -30 to -65 dB the attenuator adjusts in 5 dB intervals.

Each of the three speaker outputs have dedicated trim control pots on the top panel which allow you to perfectly match the level on each pair of reference monitors. Each control contains a high-quality, smooth turn potentiometer made by ALPS ranging from to -20 dB.

The dual TRS/TS connections allow for seamless integration between the AXIS and your audio interface or external outboard gear. A stereo RCA/phone jack is also included for connecting external playback devices or other unbalanced equipment. A 3.5 mm TRS jack is also included for connecting smaller devices such as smartphones or tablets.



  • Two stereo inputs via 1/4" TRS jack sockets, for connection from your audio interface or other line level equipment, accepts both TS and TRS jack connections
  • One stereo input via RCA/Phono sockets, for connecting CD players or other unbalanced equipment
  • One stereo 3.5 mm TRS mini-jack socket, for quick referencing to any device with a similar socket (e.g. Smartphones)
  • Three stereo outputs via 1/4" TRS jack sockets

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
