Studio Upgrade Roundup
Heritage Audio: Baby RAM
The Baby RAM is the latest entry in the Heritage Audio
RAM series of monitor controllers, which also includes the
RAM System 2000 (2.1), System 5000 (5.1) and RAM 500
(500 Series). Housed in the same slanted 3.25 " x 5.5 " x
7.75 " enclosure as the System 5000 remote unit, the Baby
RAM is an entirely passive stereo monitor switcher.
The Baby RAM allows for the seamless selection and
routing of two stereo input sources to two pairs of speakers
along with push-button Mono, Mute and Dim functions.
On the unit's face are two sets of red and white buttons
for the input and output routing, along with the controls
mentioned above. In the center is a large, robust vintage
red volume knob-a 24-step rotary controller offering sub0.1dB
precision at every 3.5dB increment.
Four stereo pairs of 1
/4
" balanced and ground-free
gold-plated TRS jacks handle the ins and outs. The unit
will also accept unbalanced input sources at the touch of
a small white Bal/Unbal button. Because the Baby RAM is
passive, no power is required.
Despite the straightforward simplicity, the Baby RAM is
a high-quality pro unit through and through. Each button,
jack and switch are of the utmost quality. Switching between
speakers and sources was seamless, with no clicks, thumps
or pops in the audio. I personally prefer a stepped volume
switch on a monitor controller as it makes recalling desired
listening levels a breeze.
Sonically, the Baby RAM is ultra-clean and pristine with
fantastic stereo imaging. I noticed zero change in the sound
vs. coming directly out of my audio interface. I especially
liked that the stereo image maintained a linear integrity from
the lowest to the highest levels, which is not always the case
with entry-level monitor controllers. I also like that both the
output buttons can be used at once when you need to hear
both sets of speakers simultaneously, or with a subwoofer.
If you are looking for a straight-ahead, zero-compromise,
and highly affordable monitor controller, look no
further than the Heritage Audio Baby RAM.
Price: $199
Hosa: Neoprene Cable Wrap
& Spiral Cable Wrap
More from: heritageaudio.net
New from Hosa, we have some new cable management
options: Neoprene Cable Wrap and Spiral Cable Wrap.
Exactly what they say they are, each one offers a different
solution for cleaning up and organizing the cable runs in
your studio.
The Neoprene Cable Wrap is a 5' x 5.5 " sheet of neoprene
(like a wet suit) with strips of Velcro running down
both sides. Lay it out flat, lay your cables on top, and
you have a clean, good-looking solution for dressing cable
runs in your studio and on stage. It is also quick and easy
to add and subtract cables from the bundle as needed.
The Spiral Cable Wrap is a 10' x 1 " coil of strong,
flexible, spiral plastic tubing that you wrap around your
cables to build your own custom snakes.
While the Spiral Cable Wrap is not as pretty to look at
as the Neoprene Cable Wrap, it offers the advantage of
being easily cut to length, and it is easier to accommodate
varied cable lengths and distances, as cables can easily
poke out of the coil at any place you need.
Price: $18.95 Neoprene Cable Wrap; $5.95 Spiral
Cable Wrap
