    AudioTouch C-Buss Review - The Analog/Virtual Symbiosis


    03/23/14

    In terms of hardware compressors, the latest products are too often expressions of the same theme, variations on a mythical device that has already proved its worth. Fortunately though, on rare occasions, a nice surprise arrives at your door. This is especially true in regard to today's topic since, for once, the innovation was right next door...

    KRK Rokit 8 G3 Review - The Return of the Yellow Cones

    03/10/14

    Rokit speakers ─ the entry-level product range of Californian manufacturer KRK ─ have found their way into numerous home studios for many years. But until the recent release of the third-generation of Rokits, the yellow-coned speakers hadn't had an update in five years and were in need of a face-lift to keep pace with the ever-growing and stronger…

    Hercules DJ Monitor 5 Review - Give me Five!

    12/22/13

    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…

    Presonus Sceptre S6 Review - Helter-Sceptre

    12/18/13

    During the last NAMM, Presonus came out big and introduced two new series of monitor speakers: the entry-level Eris, which were very convincing in the review we previously did, and the Sceptres, whose price puts them in the midrange category. We recently received a couple of Sceptre S6 that we will review for you today. Will the Sceptres perform a…

    Presonus Eris E8 Review - Eris Ramazzotto

    10/22/13

    In Greek mythology, Eris is the goddess of discord, but also of emulation: In the Iliad, Zeus asked him to inspire the Greek war chiefs on the battlefield. Does this first PreSonus monitor speaker inspire home-studio owners to create perfect mixes? The answer is here...

    ADAM F5 Review - ADAM Low Priced

    05/01/13

    Over the last years, ADAM has become a house name in the studio monitor market. The brand itself has become the symbol of ribbon tweeters. Originally focused on the highest market segment, the manufacturer progressively started to offer more affordable speakers with the A and AX series. Now, the German company goes one step further with the new F …
