What studio monitor is best suited for me?

All PSI Audio monitors have similar frequency and phase response and therefore can be mixed and matched in any multichannel system.
The advantages of a bigger monitor compared to a smaller one are the following:

  • More powerful with higher sound pressure level output
  • Lower frequencies can be reached
  • Higher accuracy with tighter tolerances

So the choice of one monitors or another should be made taking into considerations:

  • Listening distance
  • Desired bandwidth
  • Accuracy of monitor

However the following rule of thumb can be used

Monitor Listening Distance Typical room size Typical use
A14-M 0.5 to 1 m Up to 15 m2 When space is limited such as offsite broadcasting vehicles.
Accurate transportable monitor.
