The Fostex RM-2 is a rack-mountable powered monitor system which allows you to monitor digital or analog audio signals.
It incorporates a 10 W x 2 power amplifier and outputs signals from the internal speakers (or from the headphones output jack). You can check the input level via the 26-dot LED meters.

The Fostex RM-2 is the ideal solution for monitoring needs in various space-challenged environments such as machine rooms, VTR monitoring, surveillance, mobile and stationary control rooms, theme park applications where audio monitoring is needed and the room for installation is not enough. Adding these new feature sets, RM-2 is now more versatile to various applications.
