The Adam Hall Group has announced the immediate availability of the Palmer® MONICON® XL and the active five-inch studio monitor STUDIMON 5.
The MONICON XL studio monitor controller is the flagship of the MONICON series and is one of the first Palmer products to take on the revamped appearance of the brand. It is designed for used in both professional studio environments and home studios and its design facilitates flexible table positioning and comfortable work.
The new product features a correlation meter that displays the phase difference between the left and right stereo channels to reveal mono compatibility errors in a mix. In addition, the entire analogue audio circuit means that there is no latency when monitoring as the coaxial S/PDIF signals are converted directly in the input. Users that want to set up their L/R studio monitors more flexibly will also benefit from the additional sub on the back of the housing. The mono-summed output is frequency-neutral and is not only suitable for connecting to a subwoofer, but also to a separate mono speaker in order to verify the mix in mono, both acoustically and visually with the correlation meter.
“The uniquely shaped Monicon facilitates a fast and intuitive workflow,” said Robin Henlich, senior product manager, pro audio, Adam Hall Group. “The division of the MONICON XL’s userface into two levels as well as the configurability lets users adapt it to their own workflow – and not the other way around. The latency-free signal transmission plus the correlation meter highlights the professional standard from a technical point of view. It’s simply fascinating to follow what’s happening with the stereo signal’s phase relationship in real-time.”
The MONICON XL is now available for RRP 360 EUR / 399 USD.
The Adam Hall Group has also made the active five-inch studio monitor STUDIMON 5 available. The STUDIMON 5 comes in compact bass reflex housing with wooden sidewalls.

It is ideal for home studios as well as professional audio environments. The back of the STUDIMON 5 features 1/4 inch jack and XLR inputs, and a volume controller for tuning stereo balance.
