    my weakest link in my home studio is my behringer mixer which I use only to send the signal from my soundcard to my main monitors (active tannoy reveal)

    I'm thinking on replacing the mixer, is there anything like a small mixer or a small device will do this with high quality ?

    I don't need a mixer with much channels, just need something that will control the signal to the monitors and still maintain the sound quality

    i don't think that the behringer will degrade the sound quality too noticable as long as you're mixing line levels at unity gain...i'd rather get decent monitors if i were you...

    on the other hand if you totally dig the reveals and know them in and out you can always get a routing matrix like the mackie big knob or the device by that other company that doesn't come to my mind now...it's got a remote, too...there are a number of companies out there that produce devices like this, some, or many with an even better quality than the big knob...you might want to google around a little...

    I dig the reveals, I like their raw sound :) anyway I'm so used to them now... and they are fine for my home studio :)

    Sound to me like all you need is a Mackie Big Knob!

    Presonus Central Station (blows the big knob away IMO)

    I like the Central Station too.

    But, if you don't need all the routing functions of the Central Station, check out the NHT PVC. It's a hundred bucks and allows the control of volume of a stereo source.

    BTW - I also like the Tannoy monitors. For the money, it's hard to imagine much better.

    I have checked the NHT PVC but it seems it does not has an headphones output but it's still a good affordable option

    I love my Tannoy Reveal I must say lol :)
