At this year's Musikmesse/Prolight + Sound show in Frankfurt, Germany, SPL unveiled their desktop-format Surround Monitoring Controller (SMC).

The SMC is designed for the rapidly growing number of people working with 5.1 audio in DAW's or similar desktop production systems. It can manage two surround and two stereo sources and speaker sets each, including source and speaker switching as well as Dim, Mute, Mono L/R and Mono LS/RS functions.

The SMC offers one set of balanced surround and stereo inputs each via a Sub-D 25 connector; the other set of inputs are unbalanced on RCA connectors.

A six-layer potentiometer provides volume control without signal-degenerating DAC's, VCA's or the like, while a Slave output allows the stereo or surround input signal to be routed directly to a recording device.
