SPL Volume 2 - Black

Stereo volume control, balanced XLRs, passive mute switch
MFR# SPLVOLU2

Product Description

Who needs analog level control?
Simply put—most DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) users. A majority of D/A converters and sound cards provide nothing in the way of analog level monitoring control, and this means the necessity of varying signal levels at the converter outputs. The result is a lowered bit rate in the monitoring signal, which can lead to commensurate loss of audio quality. A further, very interesting application area is in the construction of a straight, audiophile-quality stereo playback chain, where the SPL Volume 2 is situated between the playback machine and either power amp and speakers or simply active speaker system. In such cases, the playback machine must offer analog outputs. This provides for minimal financial and electronic efforts through the most direct possible playback path.

Additional Reasons for employing the Volume2
High quality balancing stages with extremely good common mode rejection (minimize interferences and disturbances in the signal paths)

The mute switch allows for very fast reaction times in cases where loud speakers or ears should be protected (for example, with computer crashes)

Users of analog summing without monitoring facilities can cost effectively improve their systems

Special Features
The Volume2 is built only with analog circuitry and performance, and its high quality parts in sophisticated circuitry design are prerequisites to superior audio quality:

  • High end volume potentiometer and illuminated mute switch from ALPS; the potentiometer controls signals directly (without VCA or DAC circuitry)
  • Balanced XLR in- and outputs
  • A high quality power supply with toroidal transformer
  • Massive, 45 mm diameter aluminum knobs ensure consistent, refined handling
  • The elegant, compact format housing (215 x 80 mm or 8.5 x 3.1 inch) allows for flexible desktop positioning near or under a computer monitor or generally saving space in positioning

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.
