With the SR expansion unit, you can turn the award-winning MONITOR-ST into a versatile surround monitoring system. Need to work in 5.1, 7.1, 10.2?  No problem, just include as many SR units as needed. The MONITOR-ST/SR combo is simply the most accurate, clear, and flexible surround monitoring solution available.

Designed by the legendary Chris Muth, the MONITOR- ST/SR system handles all of your input sources and speaker routing with crystal clarity and massive headroom delivered from a meticulously designed circuit built from only the highest quality components available. With its relay-actuated analog stepped attenuator, ever-expandable input channels and speaker outs, programmable I/O levels, all controlled via the sleek remote control, you can accurately dial in even the most elaborate surround systems for rock-solid imaging and crystal clarity. And because all the switching within the MONITOR-ST/SR combo is handled by relays, your audio signals are delivered to your speakers unadulterated, removing all the guesswork while tracking, mixing, or mastering.

The MONITOR-ST/SR handles the complex routing of a surround system with ease. When used together, the ST unit routes your front L-R speakers, the SR unit seamlessly handles the remaining inputs and speaker outputs, while the straightforward remote manages both units as an elegantly unified system. All connections on the SR are made via highest quality DB-25 connectors, and even with just one SR unit, you can instantly manage both your L-R stereo plus sub and your surround array with LFE, all without patching a single cable. There is also a dedicated port for sending the selected input source to a surround metering array.


The key to successful monitoring is dead accurate input and output calibration. With the MONITOR-ST/SR combination, you’ve got remote programmable input level offsets and front-panel calibration ports for surround channels on the SR. You can approach the often-debated surround calibration process in whatever way you deem best for your studio, workflow, and preferences.


Stay in the sweet spot while managing every signal in your surround studio. The MONITOR-ST/SR’s award-winning, ergonomic, intuitive, and indestructible remote control puts all of the functions at your fingertips – including individual muting of center, L-R front and rear, and LFE channels. You can even mute and solo channels in groups. The illuminated switches give you instant visual feedback of all your settings, while the stepped volume knob triggers the audiophile-grade relays in the main unit. Get this remote under your hands to find out why the MONITOR-ST/SR has won a TEC Nomination, A Future Music Ace Award, and was crowned a Certified Hit by Mix Magazine.
