Excellent multi-tone speakers

EdwardM, 10.07.2011
These speakers are primarily intended for studios and other monitoring or broadcasting parts (radio, television, etc.). Their magnetic shielding allows them to be attached to video monitors without damaging the visual image.
Small in size, they impose their audio qualities, namely that they have an enormous dynamic (104dB per speaker) and an extraordinary attack of speed and finesse. But they are not to be used exclusively as monitors of monitoring, they can quite sonorize small evenings (50 people outside). The addition of a subwoofer is not necessary at first, the 50Hz are very well restored. Their linearity at +/- 2.5dB ranges from 50 Hz to 20'000 Hz. Maginfiques!

The best thing you can get in the price class!

Werner702, 08.03.2012
I was looking for near-field monitors to master recordings of mainly acoustic instruments (pop, folk etc.) and had actually set a limit of about 600 EUR. I then listened to many boxes between Cologne and Munich and found out that there is a quality jump so around the 1000 EUR. Zar were rated almost all near-field monitors with 4-5 stars, but this can hardly be if you take the time and the boxes with sufficient time and appropriate music sounds and compares with each other. When I started with it, I had on my list the Yamaha HS 80, the KRK VXT6, the KRK Rokit series, the Adam A7X, the A8X and the Neumann KH-120A. I then first "for comparison" the PSI Audio 25M pre-played and that has changed and he act my hearing. I have never heard of music with such a three-dimensional spatial resolution and with so much detail richness! The 17M is the slightly smaller version of this series, for which I finally decided (the better is the enemy of the good! And so I threw my own set price limit overboard). I run the boxes now on a Fireface 800 and am regularly flat of the quality. It is great fun with the boxing music to "hear", 3D behavior is super and detail richness also. If you turn something up you feel the pressure and the bass is right too! I have the boxes in ear height, about 1.5m apart and each 1.5 m distance from the ear. I often hear quietly and the boxes do not rustle a bit! Only when one with the ear completely to the dome goes one hears little noise of the tweeter. Therefore, absolute purchase recommendation for these boxes. In the same category, I have also found the near-field monitors Focal Solo 6 Be. With these boxes I had a similar listening experience. Ultimately, I liked the PSI Audio 17M, however, better.

On / off switch is located on the back. Also two rotary knobs to change the treble and bass if you have to change this because of unfavorable premises (which I did not need, although my listening room has only about 3 x 3 meters.)
