Value For Money :

hubertolivier123's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" + # * ° §:, ---!! No words so it's good ..."

I spend a lot of time during the two months of summer bands show up. I worked with Mackie HR824 mk1. I need to listen more accurate, especially in the bass. They are also pregnant I listen every day while I work on my computer, and as I tried to make me happy ... For editing, I use it with my macbook pro, and SSL Nucleus. so no problem for the quality of reports ...


The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral? The stereo image is good? The sound is clear and precise across the spectrum? The dynamics are respected? ...

The sound is incredible!!!! The stereo image is MAGIC, treble corrected faith are of extreme precision without tiring. What can I say, the bass is incredible dynamics and accuracy, mediums are crystalline ....... This is an exceptional speaker with a quality / price ratio excelling.

What shocked me is to have a speaker that does not lose depth and precision when I lower the volume! These speakers are able to send very strong, and are extremely comfortable to work at low volume! This is far from being luxury when you work for 10h or 12h on a mounting ...

I listen to all styles, from classical to hard rock, to funk and electro, rap / rnb, disco .... They are obviously at ease on all music. Needless to say, the difference made between the different types of mastering and time appears in an extremely blatant about this kind of speakers ...


How long have you been using?
For 10 months (February 2011)

Did you try many other models before buying it?

I own mackie HR824 Mk1, Yamaha NS10 with the amp! , Genelec 8030 sub with 7050 Yamaha MSP5.

I also added the box with my adam sub 12-h S3X ..... pfeeuuuuu ...... This is serious!!

How do you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice? ...

The value for money is excellent (even if it is far from being accessible to all, we must recognize that these speakers will open the door to another world!)

I remake that choice without any hesitation. Especially since I had hate in Sold ... HaHaHa ... What happiness! (Ps: even Sold is expensive!)

The production is impeccable.

solo84's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" MAGISTRAL!"

Active monitor speakers, 3 way, see the sheet manufacturer

20 kg each, does not laugh! They are really impressive! Pretty face, darker than the pictures vouchers ...

Very practical: Filters & gains on the front cover, and the standby switch, also on the front!


Masterful, really!

I come from Dynaudio BM5-A, which were good small speakers, already pro quality for proximity, and at that price (1000 euro per pair)

Well, now, this has nothing to do! EVERYTHING is clearly superior!

The distribution of linear low frequencies seems extreme treble them! The bass is tight, precise, deep, batteries for them, and no need to sub it goes down really low! Mediums are beautiful means everything! I heard on commercial CDs finer mix that I had never heard, and all that with a clear and natural at the same time accuracy diabolical! The highs are beautiful full color finesse and sweetness!

The depth also has nothing to do! Each choice means the mix, while remaining consistent stands ... All natural sounds

Dynamics? Pff! Perfect, nothing more to say ...

The stereo is amazing precision! Already, when we hear a kick at the center, or a voice, it is difficult to convince oneself that no one central voice as the sound seems to come out ahead! Surprising!
The slightest movement in segments immediately audible, it's really amazing! Listening to Dark Side on the Moon, for example, is enlightening ...

What is very strong, as is that balance is impeccable high and low level!

Last thing: the sound is beautiful! Listening to CD is really excellent even for pleasure!


My home studio is roughly treated, but I know I seeds at low (room modes). I dreaded the arrival of the monsters, but all is well! I'll probably buy bass traps based panels Helmotz resonant, to lessen a bit around 80Hz ... The rest of the spectrum is almost mastered .... I have not felt the need to use the markers on the front of each monitor.

I do not regret my choice one second! It's really another world, I can not wait to mix it! Obviously I'm going to review all of my mixes, but it'll be fun!
