EXT inputs (I, II,III,IV and V). These can be SUMmed or individually selected.

5 Monitor outputs. These can be individually or simultaneously selected:
m1 - 3 dedicated to be used in Control room.
s1 - s2 can be Floated to be used for Studio recording applications.

TBk switches. Fed directly to the cue buses 1 & 2. This Cue bus selectivity gives the engineer in-line console functionality in a small table top monitor controller.

Studio level control. Big controller - with lots and lots (and lots) of headroom.

Monitor CUT DIM and individual LR CUTs.

REF2: Switches monitor level to an adjusted second reference level. This is a great ‘ear saver’ for long sessions – and when mixing to specific second calibrated room references – for example switching between a music tracking session and a mix job for a TV spot.

DIFF: allows the difference in the LR stereo image to be monitored.

AutoCue: Enables automatic TBk control when tracking.

PFL: Allows PFL external input to be redirected to the cue bus.

EXT: Allows external inputs to be redirected to the cue bus.

A built in talkback microphone.

The Remote control unit connects to processor via one 3M 0.050 cable – in 5m (standard length). Cable also available as 10m to 50m custom options. Custom prices are POA.

Cable connector can be mounted at back of unit or at the bottom of the unit if it is mounted in a table – so the control cable can be hidden from view!




7 balanced inputs and outputs, with adjustable gain trim and status indication.

2 independent cue buses with TB level control and cue - dim level adjustment.

Isolate button allows cue bus to be floated from the monitor buses so independent monitoring set-ups can be created for the control room and ––studio-areas.

Adjustable second reference monitor level and studio master dim levels.

Meter follow monitor allows external meter to follow EXT inputs or monitor outputs.


Danfield Audios unique AutoCue system is standard in the Monitor2 controller. This allows dynamic control of the studio talkback when recording. Cuts when tracking and in play – TBk switches on when recorder has stopped.

Balanced Ins and Outs connected via 25 way D-subs compatible with the DigidesignTM 25 way pin out logic. Breakout cables can be made to order using high quality Van Damme cable.

Dedicated XLR meter outputs.

Selectable external Talkback TRS input. Select between remote control microphone and user definable external microphone.

Dedicated direct and switched TRS Talkback feeds.

Expansion port for interesting upgrades (Just wait to see what we have got planned for next year…J). Expansion post can also be used for customized transfer bay audio switching solutions when a remote control may not be necessary.

Custom options are POA.

Has anyone did a review on this? How does it compare to the usual suspects:

Dangerous Monitor ST
Cranesong Avocat
Grace Designs

This is the same price range as the ST but more ins and outs and more features as well.

All this means nothing though becuase the Central Station has some kickass features as well but fall short on quality and sound.

I have received an e-mail, saying that my e-mail could not be delivered. It seems that this company is out of business.

Having been quite fond of their aesthetic, I'm sad to hear Danfield isn't around anymore. The only piece of their's I own is this headphone amp that I bought five or six years back. I had them install a custom mono switch that comes in handy in all sorts of situations. It has been my constant companion since the day I got it.
