Professional use, to control recording, audio mixing or creation in computer music.
Pioneer amp, use pro audio mixing.
The frequency curve is not neutral.
According to the manufacturer:
slope of + / - 15dB per octave to 85 HZ
-2dB 85Hz to 350, and almost linearly from 800 to 20kHz.
The third harmonic has a peak very important to 85Hz and the third harmonic peak very iPort to 1500Hz.
According to the test Newell & Holland:
Slope to 120 Hz, -3.5 dB averaged 120 Hz to 600Hz,-1dB from 600Hz to 800Hz, 2 dB peak at around 1500Hz, then right about 2kHz to 10kHz with a low of around 2dB 3kHz.
+ / - 5dB variation of 85Hz to 20kHz, with a hump in the midrange.
Reproduction of transients: very good
Harmonic Distortion: good result for speakers in this format
The dynamics is respected, so it is excellent but depend on the quality of your amplifier. An oversized power amp and used at low level will yield better results both in dynamic bandwidth.
The stereo image is impeccable.
The sound is clear and precise throughout the mix, yes, I would even say too much too much too clear and precise! The
+: it is a tool for calibrating and mediums as found in all the studios, he can get a quick idea of sound inherent in the cabin and its sound config .
The -: is a tool for calibrating mediums.
The NS-10M I think should be used as 2nd pair of monitor dedicated to the work of mixing mediums, voices, reverb and balance of dynamics.
As single pair they are not consistent, I consider them more as tools than as a complete monitoring system.
I work with a pair of ADAM P-22, when I advanced the mix is going to NS-10 and rework all the retail medium. In reviewing my mix on P22 is more accurate, strength, clarity, consistency
The "trick" with the NS-10 is to work with low volume and not to try to counter its midrange hump, on the contrary, at moderate levels it is found in the configuration of a good stereo system at low level (eg background music for dinner), so with a strong presence of medium, ideal if used correctly.
Value for money: today we find well-maintained used models for cheap, given the great precision that these speakers will add to this mix is excellent value for money.
In our quality amp that is necessary, as the value for money depends on your investment in amplification, let alone converters ...
