Focusrite VRM Box

     For an at home producer like me, working in a small space.  The Focusrite VRM (Virtual Reference Monitoring) Box is definitely on my future purchase list.  After extensive online research. I've come to find that this product has been reviewed, tested, and comes highly recommended.  Focusrite has truly taken into consideration a producer like myself who dosen't have the money to spend on several sets of monitors to reference a mix.  The Focusrite VRM Box is most definitely a life saver for a producer on a budget.  But enough with my rambling.  Here's a list of features and a description provided by

  Product Features

Product Description

Focusrite's VRM Box is a USB interface with headphone output featuring Virtual Reference Monitoring technology. With VRM Box, you can mix in your studio, wherever you are. Pocket sized and built to last, VRM Box places Focusrite's proven and patent-pending VRM - Virtual Reference Monitoring - technology in a robust, palm-sized audio interface. VRM overcomes the major obstacle for mixing with headphones by giving you multiple perspectives on your mix, as if you were listening through speakers. Indeed, noise levels from mixing through speakers can make it impossible for most to mix at home, especially late at night; with VRM, you can mix any time, anywhere. Using any pair of monitoring headphones, VRM lets you choose your mixing environment from a living room, a bedroom studio, or a professional studio. You then simply choose from a list of industry-standard studio monitors and speakers. VRM Box delivers audio quality worthy of your headphones. Boasting a dynamic range of 108dB, it provides a sound that’s more precise, with lower distortion, than other low-cost audio interfaces, and far superior to built-in laptop headphone outputs. VRM Box functions as a high-quality 24- bit/48kHz USB audio playback interface. So, whether you're mixing, creating music or simply listening to tracks, VRM Box is perfect. What's more, there's no need for a power supply or batteries, because it gets all the power it needs, with full audio quality, from your computer's USB port. VRM Box also features a digital (S/PDIF) input, which supports sample rates up to 192kHz. This allows you to run it in conjunction with your Pro Tools HD system, or any other interface with an S/PDIF output. VRM's room models are mathematical models which provide greater flexibility in the possible combinations of loudspeakers. The loudspeaker simulations are created using convolutions of impulse responses measured using the original loudspeakers.
