DMC Mastering Console 1693 All Black

The DMC, the heart of the mastering studio, connects converters, players, DAW, recorders, and speakers. With unparalleled 120V technology, it ensures top-notch audio quality.

Inputs & Sources

Connect audio signals to Inputs, and comparison/playback signals to Sources. Each channel is versatile, with on/off, phase reverse, and trim functions. The recording gain potentiometer allows precise control, staying outside the signal path when not in use.

Monitoring & Inserts

Three speaker pairs cover full-range, mid-field, and near-field monitors, plus a mono loudspeaker. A Phonitor headphone amplifier and subwoofer are seamlessly integrated. The insert return is finely trimmable for level adjustments post-insert chain. The system supports up to eight stereo processors with the Hermes Mastering Router.

Monitoring Signal Flow

DMC & MC 16 Integration

The DMC easily integrates with the MC16 for surround and immersive audio, supporting Dolby Atmos® or Auro 3D® projects. The MC16, the world's first analog 16-channel monitoring controller, facilitates seamless transitions between stereo and surround projects in the studio.

120V Technology Excellence

The DMC, like all SPL devices, operates on the exceptional 120V technology. The proprietary SPL 120V SUPRA operational amplifiers deliver unparalleled audio quality, boasting superior dynamic range, signal-to-noise ratio, and headroom. This innovative technology, developed by SPL founder Wolfgang Neumann, has been the foundation of SPL premium products since the iconic MMC1 Mastering Console in 2000.
