PreSonus Audio Electronics Inc. is now shipping the Central Station, a comprehensive control center featuring five stereo inputs and outputs (two digital and three analog) and a street price of less than $500.

The main audio path of the Central Station is completely passive. This mastering-level signal path has no amplifier stages including op amps, active ICs or chips eliminating coloration, noise and distortion. The unit is also equipped with 34 sealed relays, which utilize a minimal signal path design so that the audio does not pass through extraneous electronics.

Accompanying three sets of monitor outputs, each with their own set of trim pots, are three sets of analog stereo analog inputs to accommodate DAW/Mixer, Tape/CD or Keyboard/Sampler. Two of these inputs feature balanced TRS jacks and the third has RCA inputs with trim control for matching signals at different levels. It also accommodates two digital inputs via S/PDIF or TOSLINK, providing D/A conversion up to 24Bit/192kHz.

Dual fast-acting, 30 segment digital LED meters provide high resolution metering of input level as well as calibration to external equipment. The Central Station also offers a talkback omnidirectional condenser microphone that is routed through the CUE outputs for communication between artist and engineer. When the talkback feature is used, the cue mix is automatically dimmed for optimal communication.

Other features on the Central Station include two headphone outputs, MUTE, DIM, MONO, INPUT select, CUE select and OUTPUT select. An optional remote control (CSR-1) is available including TALKBACK, MUTE, DIM, MONO, INPUT and OUTPUT selection, as well as level adjustment.
