Dangerous Music Monitor


The Nerve Center for Today's Recording Environment

With the increasing complexity of today's studio setup, the task of integrating all of your input sources has become a challenge. Multiple analog and digital sources, different converters, the need to instantly switch between them and to listen through the same signal path -- there has to be a better way.

We think so too, so we designed the Dangerous Monitor. An elegant integration of four distinct functions specifically designed to give you immediate and intuitive control, with the accuracy you need. It's what we've all been waiting for.

  • Analog Input Switching
  • Digital Input Switching
  • Onboard D to A Conversion (Custom Designed by Troisi Designs, Ltd.)
  • Comprehensive Monitoring Functions


  • The Monitor incorporates four distinct functions, seamlessly integrated into one 2 RU package:Analog switching, digital switching, on board D to A conversion, and comprehensive monitoring functions. It is designed to aid studio owners in their quest to access all of their equipment in a simple,intuitive way, while delivering the best sonic performance that money can buy.

  • It Will Change the Way you Listen
  • Superior Depth, Detail and Resolution
  • Onboard D to A Conversion
  • Seamless Switching Between Input Sources




  • The design team at Dangerous knows that while there are options for digital routing,conversion and analog switching available as stand-alone units, a system that integrates them in one package has not been available until now. The addition of comprehensive monitoring features -- along with stellar sound, unprecedented flexibility and ease of use -- makes the Dangerous Monitor an essential component of today's studio environment, and a perfect companion for the Dangerous 2-BUS.

    Featuring:

  • Analog input switching: 3 pairs of analog inputs
  • Digital input switching: 4 digital inputs, with active thru outputs
  • Onboard D/A: Custom Troisi converter
  • Full console monitoring functions: L&R Phase reverse, L&R Mute, Mono, Dim, Alternate Speaker, and -6 VU Meter Offset
  • Analog and digital meter feeds
  • Stepped attenuator volume control for precise adjustment and repeatability
  • Optional remote


  • You will hear the difference.
