Central Station Plus description:

The Presonus Central Station PLUS combine the Presonus Central Station with the CSR-1 Remote Control to create the professional studio monitoring solution. The Central Station PLUS lets you playback from multiple monitor sources, so you be sure your final mix is the way you want it to be.

is the ultimate studio-monitoring interface for the modern digital studio. The Central Station features three sets of stereo analog inputs to switch between input sources such as: DAW, mixer, CD/DAT/Tape player, or keyboards/samplers. Two stereo analog inputs feature TRS balanced and the third stereo input features RCA inputs with trim control for level matching of input signals. In addition, the Central Station will accommodate two digital inputs via S/PDIF or TOSLINK providing D/A conversion up to 24Bit/192kHz.

This allows you to monitor DAW and CD/DAT outputs through the same professional quality converter for the most accurate A/B comparison and highest quality monitoring environment. The digital to analog converter offers the highest possible audio quality with over 117dB dynamic range and ultra high quality analog circuitry. The Central Station features three sets of monitor outputs, each with their own set of passive trim controls. The monitoring section also provides MUTE, DIM and MONO switches. In addition, the Central Station includes a set of CUE outputs that can feed headphone amplifiers and a separate stereo MAIN line level output.

The Presonus CSR-1 Remote connects to the rear of the Central Station via db15 connector to control VOLUME, TALKBACK, MUTE, input source switching and speaker output switching functions. Keep the Central Station in your rack with your gear and use the CSR-1 for ultimate control and flexibility.

Review:
I've had my current studio set up for 10+ years and always had a niggling feeling about some low level distortion - acoustic treatment, different monitors (now Neumann and AE) all sorts of attempts never got it. Then I thought 'what about my monitor switch?'... I had a Mackie Big Knob, I wired it out of the chain and bang! everything sounded great. So, I looked for a passive solution.. being an enthusiastic Presonus Studio One user I settled on Central Station. DV247 took my order and 2 days later I had the unit wired in and working great. I now know that my system previously suffered harmonic distortion and some phase distortion - now the sound's spot on and the stereo image is solid.
I don't want to run Mackie down, I think they make great gear, maybe my unit was faulty or something...But CS is really something else. Thanks Presonus again!

Review:
I had heard rumours of the remote changing the quality of audio through this unit, and have auditioned it over and over and to my ears ( trained over 20years of sound engineering) I can't hear any change in audio take the time to calibrate the unit prior to use and all is great! Love it!
