The M-48 enables control of up to 40 audio channels via 16 stereo groups. No longer do you have to share the same sources and in the same order as everyone else. Each musician can choose what he or she wants to listen to - a truly personal mix.
Professional Sound Control and Quality
Sweeten your monitor mix to your exact preferences with volume, pan, 3-band EQ and built-in reverb per group ?all instantly adjustable by convenient encoder knobs. A limiter is incorporated for protecting your ears from sudden and dangerous volume spikes. Based on REAC, the all-digital connection results in a low noise floor, improved musicality and crystal clear sound.
The LED indicators on the control knobs enable instant adjustment and visual confirmation at a glance, even on a dark stage. The built-in ambient mic aids in communicating with other musicians without have to remove your ear-buds or headphones as well as enabling a stage/room feel if desired. The AUX Input allows a metronome or other device to be mixed into the primary sound.
Our newly developed "REAC Embedded Power" (via the S-4000D) transfers both power and 40 channels of audio to the M-48 via a single CAT5e cable dramatically simplifying wiring and stage layouts. Mini jack and 1/4 inch phone jack headphone outputs are provided. Balanced TRS line outputs support wedge or other types of powered monitors. An independent stereo output mini jack enables recording with superb sound quality.
A Complete Digital Mixing System with any V-Mixer
With any V-Mixer Live Mixing Console you can setup, maintain and control 40 channels of monitor output to each M-48 connected to the system. All V-Mixers are equipped with the remote management software, memory recall, etc. providing a simple and flexible setup.
Connect to an existing Analog/Digital Console
With an existing console, connect the M-48 along with the S-1608 (16 channel) or the S-4000S (40 channel) Digital Snake to utilize the complete system. For a digital consoles, use the S-MADI REAC MADI Bridge to maintain the digital connection between the console and the M-48s. The next generation of digital monitoring can be incorporated along with your existing mixing system.

M-48's can be setup and controlled on your PC when using with an existing console. Simply connect to the serial port on the S-1608/S-4000S series Digital Snakes or S-MADI.
Included Mounting Plate
The M-48 can be attached to the top of a microphone stand by using the bundled mounting bracket. The mounting bracket is also designed with a removeable headphone hanger and accessory tray for your pencil or portable recorder.
