Dangerous Music MONITOR – No Longer Available

Monitor control for the mastering and mixing studio
MFR# Monitor

Product Description

Monitoring is the most critical part of any studio set-up.   Every decision made is based on what you hear, or what you don’t hear, through the monitor system.  In today’s professional mastering and mixing rooms quality monitor control means an accurate, uncolored yet musical signal path with immediate and intuitive control.

To put out high-quality work an engineer needs the ability to easily switch between multiple analog and digital sources as well as different sets of speakers, to recall level settings, and most critically to listen to the input source material through the same signal path.  The Dangerous MONITOR delivers all of this, and more.

The Dangerous Monitor is the realization of four distinct functions, seamlessly integrated into one 2u package: analog switching, digital switching, onboard D to A conversion, and comprehensive mastering monitoring functions.  There are separate products out there that handle most of these tasks, but a system that elegantly integrates them into one package while delivering top-quality performance in all areas is a must for a focused control room in a competitive studio.

Specifically designed by mastering studio veterans to bring no-compromise monitor control to your studio, it’s stellar sound, straightforward ergonomics and uncompromising accuracy along with its mastering-quality D to A converter will finally let you hear what your tracks really sound like.

A perfect companion for the Dangerous MQ and 2-BUS - no professional studio should be without one.

The design team at Dangerous knows that while there are options for digital routing,conversion and analog switching available as stand-alone units, a system that integrates them in one package has not been available until now.  The addition of comprehensive monitoring features -- along with stellar sound, unprecedented flexibility and ease of use -- makes the Dangerous MONITOR an essential component of today's studio environment, and a perfect companion for the Dangerous 2-BUS.

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.

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.
