Milled from the solid
aluminum is the 45mm large volume knob. Its mass in combination with the motorized Alps RK27 “Big Blue” potentiometer further enhances the “spoon in honey” turning feeling.
The volume can be adjusted with any infrared remote control, which Phonitor 2 simply learns.
Just press the IR programming button on the back and then the buttons for louder and softer.

To The Power Amp
or to the active loudspeakers it goes symmetrically via XLR sockets.
The volume control can be switched off by means of a dip-switch on the bottom of the unit.
Two balanced and one unbalanced stereo sources can be connected to Phonitor 2.
If a CD player or other HiFi equipment is connected to the RCA jacks, the consumer level can be raised from -10 dBV to 0 dBu using a dip switch on the bottom of the unit. In this way the sources are comparable in level.
Mechanical VU Meter
visualize the input levels, which can be switched in sensitivity with the VU Cal switch.
By its very nature, hearing can be directed more to the left or more to the right. This is particularly evident when listening with headphones.
That’s why Phonitor 2 has the finely resolved Laterality control. With it the center can be set perfectly.
