The first member of our brand New Monitoring Control System, the  RAM System 500  for our modular 500 Series.

After two years of intensive research and development, the first element of the RAM systems came to life. The RAM System 500 is a fully unique product with no precedent in the industry, providing a mastering grade monitoring solution for the 500 series.

As a 500 series plug-in unit with double module width, it serves as a compact, zero-compromise monitoring station for home, project or mobile studios. It features one stereo speaker output and powerful headphone amp, two balanced stereo inputs and a Bluetooth input for convenient wireless connection to mobile devices. The RAM System 500 uses state-of-the-art analog circuitry for maximum transparency and minimal noise floor and distortion. The entire signal path, including the 64-stage relay attenuation system, is designed with gold-plated switching relays, archiving stereo accuracy and sound quality only found in systems costing 10 times as much.
