Volume with remote control
The volume is adjusted with a milled all-aluminium rotary knob. The Alps RK27 “Big Blue” potentiometer provides a pleasant “spoon in honey” turning feeling.
The volume can be adjusted with any infrared remote control. The Phonitor e learns their commands. To do this, press the IR programming button on the back and then the buttons for louder and softer.
Learning made easy
This video explains how you can use any infrared remote control to remotely control the volume.
A total of five sources can be connected to Phonitor e:
XLR, Cinch, USB, Coax, and Optical
Phonitor e is equipped with RCA connectors and balanced XLR connectors for the analog inputs.
The optional DAC768xs adds three more digital sources: USB, Coax and Optical.
The optional DAC768xs
The converter chip used in the optional digital-to-analog converter is the highly acclaimed AKM AK4490 Velvet Sound™ premium DAC chip, which thanks to its new architecture reproduces the finest sound details.
It converts PCM audio with a resolution of 32 bits and a sampling rate of up to 768kHz, which corresponds to 16 times the CD resolution. Direct Stream Digital is also supported up to a resolution of DSD4 or DSD256.
in the headphone amplifier is the Phonitor Matrix, with switchable crossfeed, thanks to which you can listen to music with headphones as if you are listening to speakers.
The tiring super stereo effect and the exaggerated reproduction of reverberation rooms and effects are a thing of the past.
Enjoy your music without tiring and exactly as it should be heard.
The Phonitor Matrix, in its largest expansion stage, has three adjustment parameters: Crossfeed, Speaker Angle and Center Level.
In Phonitor e the center level is preset to -1 dB and the speaker angle to 30°.
These are the most common values.
The crossfeed function determines the crosstalk of the channels, the so-called interaural level difference. There are two switch positions C1 and C2 for the intensity of the crossfeed.
