The Professional Spirit - Focal Spirit Professional Review
A little over a year ago, the French brand Focal, well-known for its range of speakers, introduced its first pair of headphones: Spirit One.

Give me Five! - Hercules DJ Monitor 5 Review
Well-known for its interfaces and control surfaces for DJs, Hercules surprised us with the XPS 2.0 DJ Monitors and their excellent value for money. If you are curious to hear the DJ Monitor 5, which cost twice as much and in terms of features, price and yellow woofers certainly tread the terrain of KRK's Rokit RP5…
