    Does anyone have experience with the Samson C-Control. I've read some mixed reviews...How does it sound...or better not sound. Is it transparent or will it effect the sound?

    It's pretty "colorful" - But not that going through a UB602 or something isn't...

    I'm looking for something that will allow me to switch between 2 sets of monitors without adding color to the signal. Any ideas? Would using a patch bay work...mixer to power amp to patchbay...connecting my speakers to the bay and using cables to connect one set or the other?

    My personal (at least "affordable") preference would be the PreSonus Central Station. All passive - No color.

    Plus a very decent monitoring DA, meters, TB, "A or B plus C" switching, front panel calibration control... Very nice and well-designed unit.

    The patch bay would work for switching, but you'll still need attenuation - I think NHT makes a good quality model, along with A-Designs.

    Thanks for the reply. As far as the patch bay solution is concerned, my purpose is to be able to check my mixes on more than one set of monitors, so the volume question isn't critical. I just wanted to know if running a "powered" input into the patch bay would cause any problems for other equipment connected to the same patch bay.
