Subtle quality increase

09.02.2015
Well, I'll record my own piano music at home. In the evening I mix and finalize the material. I can not work with monitors; That bothers the whole family. So far I had a - for my circumstances - ordinary headphones (AKG K 271 Mk II). But so far it was hard for me to compare the result with professional CD's. After careful consideration, I then added this headphone amplifier - along with an even better headphone (Shure SRH 1450). The expectation was that I then my recordings can properly evaluate and compare, without ever have the downmix to the HiFi system to have to transport.
Result: Well, yes. After the first set-up of the new set-up, the expected quantum jump will initially be lost. When switching between Matrix On and Off is nothing to hear ... or is it? Something has changed, but what? Multiple CD's and mix-repeats later, I think to identify stronger differences between matrix mode on and off. Headphones dropped ... Wait, the usual deafness is not there! Ah, there is something different.
After several days of intensive use, my favorite setting is as follows: Crossfeed: High, Angle 22 °, Center Off on CD listening, -1.2 dB when mixing.
Conclusion: The SPL Phonitor Mini works subtly. If you expect a spectacular effect, you will be disappointed. But for me the hearing has improved. The super-stereo effect and its adverse effects on multi-hour headphone sessions is clearly suppressed. And that was worth the investment.
Oh yes, still what the technique: What I like very much, are the two inputs and their switchover by switch. This way, I can listen to both my CD player and my mixer setup (PC + audio interface). As others have written in their reviews irritates me also a little, that one must always the output (or the whole device hold) must, if one the Kophhörer plug would pull. A bit like that, there's a feeling of fear, you could break something. You have to be careful. Welcome in the past, where you had to be careful, which device of the peripherals around the PC you should turn on / off as first / next / last :-)

Great headphone amplifier

Guido655, 25.07.2014
Since I often mix with the headphone, I wanted to counter the disadvantages of the headphone and searched for a headphone amplifier with crossfeed function.

At first, I used the Focusrite VRM box, but it turned out to be a pure toy, which made the sound just somehow "more eccentric" and more indirect.

Then I tried the 2Control of SPL, whose crossfeed function I then also very much liked. However, this device rushes with nierderohmigen Studiokopfhörern very, which I was not willing for this price to accept.

Ultimately, I ordered the Phonitor mini and must say that he moves in a completely separate class. It does not rustle even with very low-impedance headphones and triggers every minute detail perfectly. The crossfeed function is actually more controllable than thought.

Some people do not like this function, it does not sound like real spatial listening and that is true - but I would describe it as the headphones estimated advantages (directness, little Hallanteile), but its disadvantages (too strong Isolation, superstereffect).

If you have listened, you can really mix perfectly. I use the Phonitor mini together with a Shure SRH 840 and am extremely satisfied.

The price is quite right for what is offered. The processing is robust, but in comparison to the Phonitor 2 simple, so I give only 4 points. In addition, when unpacking, two of the glued rubber feet fell off, which was quick to fix, but should not necessarily occur in the price class.

The unit is by the way quite low, although it is only about 1 U of a 19 "rack is high!
