The hybrid preamp with discrete transistor stage and separate tube stage combines high performance and neutrality with the option for sound coloration by enhancing the harmonic content with the switchable tube drive.
The unique one-knob de-esser employs a phase cancelling technique to reduce sibilants.
With three bands, the EQ section covers the complete frequency spectrum efficiently.
The tube saturation stage gives that dense, energetic, warm and fat tube sound that we all love.
The compressor offers all classic parameters and a controllable automation of attack and release which adjusts the setting of time constants to the input signal – pretty much like a cruise control.

With or without DAW
Crimson is designed to operate with your Digital Audio Workstation. But you can also do a lot with it as a stand-alone device: plug in an instrument and play. Connect a microphone and sing along. Mix your own monitor signal with playback or guide tracks from any source – including your smartphone. What you are playing is not bad? Turn on the DAW and record it.

A new concept with phenomenal value
At SPL we design audio equipment in all price ranges – except cheap gear. Therefore each SPL unit provides professional quality. The Crimson leaps forward and sets a new sound quality benchmark in its price range: We have re-designed proven circuitries and created a new, fully integrated design. Together with new production methods we are able to break through usual price limits. So with the Crimson interface and controller you have a boutique standard recording and monitoring device at a fraction of the price we used to know from traditional engineering and manufacturing.

The New Heart Of Music Playback: Phonitor2
Many Phonitor2 users told us they wished they could also use the unmatched signal quality that the Phonitor2 provides to feed their speakers. And so began to take form the idea of making its successor a full-fledged stereo preamp that could become the heart of modern professional and home systems alike where headphones have a preeminent importance.

Remote Control
The volume can be controlled remotely. Naturally, the audio signal is controlled via a high-quality motor potentiometer in that case. To control it you can use any IR remote control: the remote must not learn the Phonitor2, but rather the Phonitor2 learns to understand your remote’s signal.

Home Listening
Home users can enjoy a central control unit for modern music playback of stereo signals that supports all known formats ─ and that with an unheard-of price/performance ratio. The Phonitor2 matches perfectly modern playback concepts: minimalist chains with active speakers and almost any pair of headphones can be centrally fed via three different paths, thanks to an integrated high-quality amplifying and signal-managing concept.

Sound Engineers
Besides being a reference-quality Monitor Controller, the Phonitor2, together with a carefully matched pair of headphones, offers professional users an excellent monitoring alternative to their main speakers. The audio quality and features of the Phonitor2 provide the best conditions to work effectively without hearing fatigue.

120 Volt Technology
The foundations of this high-end-development is our 120 Volt reference technology: specially developed and manufactured op-amps that run on an operating voltage of 120 volts, which corresponds to approximately twice that of most modern analog audio semiconductor technologies. The musical result is not to be mistaken: Regardless of the monitoring means, regardless of how loud you monitor – the Phonitor2 always remains a distant, impartial factor unaffected when used to capacity and beyond being overloaded. All frequencies are reproduced in balance, basses are stable and tight, mids are clear and differentiated and highs remain transparent and soft. Particularly striking is the fact that you can easily listen to every detail. Hearing fatigue makes it usually harder to carefully listen to and understand complex signals over a long period of time. The Phonitor 2 reverses this situation turning it into a pleasant listening experience that leaves you longing for more.

Besides being a reference-quality Monitor Controller, the Phonitor2, together with a carefully matched pair of headphones, offers professional users an excellent monitoring alternative to their main speakers. The audio quality and features of the Phonitor2 provide the best conditions to work effectively without hearing fatigue.

120 Volt Technology
The foundations of this high-end-development is our 120 Volt reference technology: specially developed and manufactured op-amps that run on an operating voltage of 120 volts, which corresponds to approximately twice that of most modern analog audio semiconductor technologies. The musical result is not to be mistaken: Regardless of the monitoring means, regardless of how loud you monitor – the Phonitor2 always remains a distant, impartial factor unaffected when used to capacity and beyond being overloaded. All frequencies are reproduced in balance, basses are stable and tight, mids are clear and differentiated and highs remain transparent and soft. Particularly striking is the fact that you can easily listen to every detail. Hearing fatigue makes it usually harder to carefully listen to and understand complex signals over a long period of time. The Phonitor 2 reverses this situation turning it into a pleasant listening experience that leaves you longing for more.
