Focusrite Virtual Reference Monitoring VRM Box

We've all burned CDs of our mixes so that we can listen to our latest creation on as many different systems as we can: the living room HiFi, the television, our friends' studio monitors and so on. Then the process of improving the mix based on what we've heard begins. We might burn another CD to check the updated mix on the same systems in the hope that it sounds better second time around. We may not realise it but we are now 'reference mixing'. This is why most studios have multiple pairs of speakers; so the engineer can reference the mix on more than one monitor. For most of us this is tough, due to space or budget constraints.
Compact enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and USB bus-powered, VRM Box is the ideal high-fidelity portable headphone interface. With a measured dynamic range of 108dBA, VRM Box provides a huge improvement for headphone listening when compared with the on-board sound of all laptops, as well as many far more expensive audio interfaces. Added with the Virtual Reference Monitoring technology, VRM Box represents incredible value for money.
