Powerful near field studio monitor

“Performance far higher than similar sized monitors – tonally extremely accurate and neutral.”

“These speakers are extraordinary and deliver a level of performance and accuracy that vanishingly few two‑way designs can match, and which would shame a great many three‑way offerings. Auditioning is highly recommended for serious high‑end monitoring applications.
