SPL Ships 'Control One' and 'Marc One' Monitor Controllers - New from "Series One" Product Line

Two new monitor controllers in SPL "Series One" product line offer pro sound at an affordable price

Montreal, Canada - October 20, 2020 - SPL of Germany has shipped the "Control One" ($599.) and "Marc One" ($799.) monitor controllers from their new affordable "Series One" product line. The SPL line of products is distributed by Focal-Naim America in the US and Canada.

The SPL Control One is the ideal monitor controller for the modern studio. As a high-quality analog control center, it manages audio sources and monitor speakers including subwoofer. In addition, the device features an individually adjustable high-quality headphone amplifier with Phonitor Matrix. Thanks to the various monitoring modes, no sound detail remains undiscovered.

The SPL Marc One extends this feature set by a state-of-the-art stereo AD/DA converter with the highly acclaimed AKM AK 4490 Velvet Sound(tm) chip on the DA side and the matching AK 5552 on the AD side. Besides playing and recording digital PCM audio material with up to 768 kHz/32Bit, a playback of Direct Stream Digital Audio up to DSD4 is also possible. Marc One can directly be connected to a computer via USB - regardless of whether it is a Mac, PC or Class Compliant Mobile Device. Analog volume controls, premium switches and a high-quality metal housing with aluminum front panel round off the overall professional design.

True to the motto "Number One in Sound", SPL has developed a new product line that combines the sound of their big devices with a desktop-friendly design and an affordable price for the ambitious user. The Series One was equally developed for professional recording studios, home studios, musicians, music lovers, and media creatives of all kinds.

Hermann Gier, co-founder and CEO of SPL said, "With the Marc One and the Control One we are bringing two monitoring controllers to the market, designed to speed up the workflow and to create remarkable sounding mixes. The Marc One is our first monitoring and recording controller with a hi-res AD/DA converter on board. That means that users can not only monitor any USB source but they can now also record using their beloved channel strips or mic preamps reaching a higher sound quality than with the usual interfaces."
