icOn 5 Single-ended

I’m truly impressed by the new icOn 5. It signifies a substantial leap forward from the already outstanding and widely popular 4PRO models. The inclusion of the optional input buffer, coupled with the lower inductance autoformers, along with the finely adjustable volume control in increments of 0.5 dB and the optional tilt control, results in an astonishingly lifelike auditory experience.

The unit also boasts eight pairs of RCA sockets with customizable functionality for users and has remarkably precise volume adjustment capabilities (spanning 136 steps within an 83 dB range). I find it hard to imagine that I’ll manage to create a superior audio control unit in the future—perhaps only a distinct one. If you need mixed RCA & XLR sockets, there is a version with 2 XLR (with single-ended connection) + 2 RCA inputs and 1 RCA + 1 XLR (can be electronically balanced) outputs as well.  More info…
