    Thanks for that, hasn't seen that one.

    Whether I get the Phonitor depends on what I do wrt a DAC, that's my priority, and I have been getting some help here regarding that decision (MOTU, Prism etc). That will determine budget for a pre. And selling some other stuff which I have been lazy with.

    That would make an impressive looking unit but I can't see me needing 3 balanced outputs anytime soon!

    As for impressions, I will post when I think I have something useful to add. Lots to do before then.

    I'm mainly use the Phonitor has a pre. How i can use any remote is super helpful
    I'm super loving that the Phonitor comes with trigger out too!!
    (also.. yeah. meters.. they look cool :) )

    note, anyone can use the trigger out even if your devices don't support it. You can get a power strip that can support it.
    I'm using the Niles AC-3.
    That way when i power off the Phonitor it shuts off the Schiit amp that is shoved under my desk.

    UPDATE: It doesn't seem to be working (the trigger that is) - i wonder if they did something funky. 12v triggers should be generic.
    I opened a ticket with them.

    Are you using a 3.5mm mono cable?
    edit: also the manual states specifically it is used with the s800 amp, not that it's a generic 12v trigger... (I only ever tested with the s800, I don't have any other gear with the trigger)

    i didn't get it for the tigger.. but i was pumped when i saw it. I asked SPL about this. I'm not sure what would be worse... that it only works with their amp or it is generic and my unit is broken :p
