SPL Volume 8 - Black

8 channel volume control , I/O over DB-25
MFR# SPLVOLU8

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 leads to commensurate loss of audio quality. A further, very interesting application area is in the construction of a straight multi-channel playback chain, where the Volume8 is situated between the playback machine and either power amp and speakers or simply active speaker systems. 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 Volume 8
  • 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 Volume8 is built only with analog circuitry and performance, and its high quality parts in sophisticated circuitry design are prerequisites to superior audio quality:
  • Custom designed, high end, eight-ganged potentiometer with invariable precision at each and every gain level
  • Illuminated passive mute switches from ALPS, relay switching for all channels
  • Input and outputs over DB-25 connectors (to multicore XLR or 1/4-inch TRS)
  • A high quality power supply with toroidal transformer
  • Input and outputs over DB-25 connectors (to multicore XLR or 1/4-inch TRS)
  • Massive, 45 mm/1.78-inch diameter aluminum knob 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 below 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.
