Press Release:
London – UK: KMR Audio is proud to introduce Shadow Hills’ latest product, the Oculus monitor controllers.

The Shadow Hills Oculus is a no expense spared monitor console drawing from years of experience in creating some of the most revered mastering compressors and summing mixers. The Oculus uses esoteric architecture and mastering-grade topologies to maintain audio integrity.

The Oculus features five selectable fully balanced input sources and three stereo speaker outputs each with its own trim control. Unbalanced sources can be used on Source A and are routed through a Class-A active buffer to ensure optimised performance. A dedicated subwoofer output is included and features level trim control for each speaker selection.

The Oculus comes in two versions with a wired or wireless Pendant remote control with a large volume knob controlling three fully-discrete passive volume attenuators for left, right and sub out. The passive topology delivers a superior sound with none of the distortion often added by active components.


With Left/Right/Sub mute, Mono Sum, two large VU Meter and two Class-A audiophile headphone amps and a complete large format console type talkback are also included. Cue Feed monitoring with auto cue lets you switch between external cue feed and current input source.

The Shadow Hills Oculus is exclusively available to order in the UK from KMR Audio for £2200 ex VAT (£2640 inc VAT) and £2800 ex VAT (£3360 inc VAT) for the Oculus Wireless.
