PreSonus Central Station Plus with CSR-1 remote

The PreSonus Central Station PLUS is a complete solution to all your monitoring needs. The Central Station PLUS features 3 selectable sets of stereo analogue inputs, 2 digital inputs and 3 selectable sets of stereo speaker outputs.

With Central Station, you can easily switch between three sets of stereo, analogue input sources and one stereo digital input source. The digital inputs provide up to 24-bit, 192 kHz digital-to-analogue 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.
