24x16x8 monitor mixer, 6-ch headphone amp with mixing/DSP

 

Monitor 8 is three products in one, monitor mixer, headphone amp and audio interface.  It can serve as your main audio interface, in the studio, on stage and much more.  You can mix 24 inputs, multichannel computer audio, dozens of AVB networking to eight stereo outputs groups.  

Six monitor groups with multiple outputs each group output provides multiple mirrored outputs, which can be fed to in-ear monitoring systems or other stereo destinations. The Monitor 8 connects to a computer through USB 2.0, which provides more than enough bandwidth for the twenty-four channels, and, when connected through AVB networking, supports hundreds of network channels.
