Product Description

The Radial MC3 Studio Monitor Controller allows engineers to quickly select between reference monitors, subwoofer or headphones and compare how the mix translates via various playback systems! Engineers everywhere have needed an easy, high quality and inexpensive studio monitor switcher for years, and the Radial MC3 is it! The MC3 has the unique ability to quickly sum mono for AM radio compatibility.

Radial MC3 Studio Monitor Controller Features

  • 100 percent passive circuitry for no coloration or distortion of the audio
  • Easy access level control lets you quickly set playback levels on all speakers
  • Control two sets of monitors and sub woofer
  • Mono sum for AM radio compatibility and phase check
  • Individual 'set and forget' controls to fine tune levels
  • Built-in headphone amplifier
While most monitor switchers are active the MC3 from Radial is 100 percent passive. This means that unlike active switchers that introduce a buffered electronic circuit in between your recording system and monitors, the MC3 delivers straight wire performance. This eliminates coloration and distortion for more accurate monitoring.

The Radial MC3 features an easy access level control that lets you quickly set playback levels on all speakers. Each output is equipped with a top-mount 'set and forget' dial to fine tune outputs for the ideal balance. The sub is augmented with a 180 degree polarity reverse to help deal with room modes that may cause a frequency bump in the mix position. A separate Dim switch is also adjustable to enable the engineer to temporarily drop the playback level without affecting the mix level settings.

To address the ever increasing popularity of ear buds, the Radial MC3 is equipped with a built-in headphone amplifier with stereo 3.5mm (1/8 in. TRS) output along with two standard 1/4 in. headphone phone outs to share. The MC3 may be configured for either balanced or unbalanced setups.

Clear playback, you hear what is on the hard drive
General
Your general opinion of this product.
It does not color the sound. If you have a less than great room or monitor placement this will not convince you it sounds good. What you have is what you get, but if you have great D/A conversion, and well placed monitors in a treated room the passive box allows you to hear all your great set up without getting in the way.
