Great design but a bit weak performance

28.02.2016
I needed a small speaker set to supplement my Adam A7X and Yamaha HS7 monitors just to check mixes on a 5 inch system as well to have a better overview.

The build quality is very good, it feels solid. I also liked the red design, it brings some life to the studio. The feature set is great, you can fine tune the speakers to your room or taste with the onboard EQ.

What I'm dissapointed with is the sound. I didn't expect them to sound as full and detailed as my Adams but hoped they would give a different view on the mixes with a different tone but similar quality to the Yamahas. I was wrong... What's good is the stereo imaging and that they can go pretty loud. What's not too good is the boxiness and the lack of details in the highs. I felt that they didn't provide me with any extra information that could help producing better translating mixes, I would rather use similarly priced hi-fi speakers.

If someone is new to audio production these might be a good choice as a first set. Otherwise I would suggest saving up a little bit more and get a better pair of speakers.

Top near field monitors

Christian5781, 03.02.2015
Great processed near field monitors, in red an absolute studioblickfang,
Balanced sound picture, and for a 5.25 woofer very accurate bass reproduction. Top price performance ratio, top monitor of a German manufacturer. I would immediately buy again, maybe I will also still in the related Gibbon 10s subwoofer invest, but is not primarily necessary. In my opinion even a cheap alternative to the also great Neumann KH 120a, which have approximately the same mass and also a 5.25 Woofer.
