SKU: CENTSTATIONPLUS

    Product Description

    The Central Station Plus is the new heart of your studio. The perfect hub to combine all of your audio routing so that you can quickly and easily switch between your different devices and different sets of monitors without having to leave your seat!

    The Central station plus features 2 pieces of hardware. A 1U rackmount chassis allows you to connect a range of digital and analogue inputs and outputs, and the front panel offers simple controls so that you can quickly switch between the different sources and set the levels. The other element to the Central Station Plus, is the Remote, which connects to the main unit with one single cable and gives you all the essential controls on your desktop, right at your fingertips. This includes a built in talkback with mic, so that you can easily talk to whoever is in the live room at the press of a button.

    Here's what Presonus say about the Central Station Plus

    Take command of your monitors

    You need to be able to switch between multiple sets of monitors and hear what your mix sounds like with and without a subwoofer. You want to be able to switch between multiple analog and digital sources. And you want to do it without sacrificing clarity and transparency. Meet the Central Station PLUS, the professional’s choice for monitor control.

    A variety of connections for all of your sources and destinations

    With Central Station, you can easily switch between three sets of stereo, analog input sources and one stereo digital input source. The digital inputs provide up to 24-bit, 192 kHz digital-to-analog conversion, and the converters deliver more than 115 dB of dynamic range. The Central Station will automatically detect and lock to the sampling rate of the source device. 

    You can audition these sources with up to three pairs of speakers, with individual trim pots for each speaker. You also get two screaming-loud headphone amplifiers with individual level controls. If two sets of cans aren’t enough, simply connect the line-level cue outputs to a headphone distribution system—say, a PreSonus® HP2, HP4, or HP60. And because Central Station is a 1U rack-mount device, with only one multi-conductor cable running to the remote control on your desktop, all of the cabling is in the back of your rack, where it belongs.

    Pure, audiophile-quality sound

    The pros know that for critical listening, a monitor-control system must be as sonically transparent as possible. That’s why we gave the Central Station an audiophile-quality, passive signal path, with no op-amps or ICs, and we equipped the S/PDIF inputs with high-definition, 24-bit, 192 kHz D/A converters. 

    The Central Station uses the highest-quality passive components, including military-grade, 1% tolerance, metal-film resistors; multi-element potentiometers; and durable connectors to deliver the highest sonic performance. This ensures the most transparent signal path and maximizes dynamic range, frequency response, and headroom while minimizing noise and coloration.

    A wealth of features gives you a complete monitoring solution

    We’ve included plenty of extras to make your studio work easy and efficient. Talk to the musicians over the headphone and cue buses using the onboard talkback microphone or connect a dynamic mic to the XLR talkback input. Use a footswitch for hands-free talkback operation. A Mono switch sums the stereo source so you can check for phase problems, and Dim and Mute switches let you reduce or mute the speaker outputs without changing the referenced position on your main level knob. To top it off, the included CSR-1 remote control lets you manage it all from your desktop. 

    With its combination of I/O, audio quality, and features, it’s no surprise that the Central Station PLUS is indeed the professional’s choice for monitor control.

    CS1R Remote- A complete solution

    The CSR-1 provides remote control of volume for each input pair and for the talkback mic, as well as controlling muting, input-source switching, and passive speaker-output switching. The Dim and Mono features can also be controlled from the remote unit.

    A built-in electret condenser talkback mic with momentary on/off Talk button enables you to address the musicians through their headphones. (The Central Station main unit also has a talkback mic, so make sure to turn down whichever talkback mic you are using!

    Central Station connects to the CSR-1 via the included proprietary DB15 cable, enabling you to keep the Central Station in your rack and control it from your desktop. This provides maximum convenience with minimum wiring, keeping your workspace free of cable clutter.
