Compact speakers with high fidelity and connectivity
idyllictux, 17.11.2020
EVE SC203 is an excellent near-field pair of monitors. I was so impressed with the spectrum of sound and clarity it produces. I bought this as a replacement/upgrade from my existing PreSonus Eris 3.5 (which exhibits humming and buzzing randomly) while still maintain the strict requirement on limited desk space.

My setup has a JDS Element II hooks to PC via USB as DAC/Pre-amp then connects to EVE SC203 via RCA (maximum 8dBu). EVE SC203 has excellent playback with a consistent, clean and pleasing smoothness. Great clarity, imaging and soundstage observed from such tiny speaker which I can listen for hours. In my opinion, EVE SC203 is very suitable for music with string instrument, female vocal and perhaps drum cymbal. You can get a subwoofer if space isn't the problem as that will improve the bass response for this pair.

Things to note: The cable connecting the left-speaker is special (also not aesthetically pleasing cos of red/blue combination), because the treble and bass each have a class D amplifier, and each box has two class D amplifiers. That's why it has a total of four wires in the cable. I was kinda sad that I couldn't use existing custom speaker cable cos of this special cable. Also the included rubber pads are meant for speaker positioning, and not for vibration reduction.

In conclusion, the EVE SC203s are excellent compact speakers with high degree of fidelity and connectivity (USB, RCA & Optical input). They are very suitable for people who have limited desktop space yet have excellent sound quality. Though such quality comes at a high price, no doubt one can buy larger speakers with similar prices and better effects or with similar sound quality. But in this rather niche compact form factor, a certain level of compromise is needed and these desktop monitors are one of the best if money isn't the problem.

They are great!
Simon889, 04.11.2020
For 444 euros, they are great, I think.

They are small/compact, and they fight to be as flat as possible.

These would be great for bedroom/small room producers, who are looking to also mix/master their own music, obviously with room treatment.

however, when I compared these next to the Adam A3X's, the Adams won hands down, the Adams were more full and tighter in the low-end as well all the way up to 20khz.

The Eve's lack a bit of low-end, the same goes for the mid's/high's.

The Adam's sounded flatter, natural, and rich to me.

The Eves also has a DSP limiter, which was a stupid move by Eve audio, it cancels out all frequencies and they barely reach proper volume, they are probably meant to listen to low volumes.

So I would aim for the eve 204's instead of these if it comes down to getting small monitors for small rooms, I would opt for the eve 203's for listening to music/movies/podcast more so than to mix/master music with these

the soundcard or the a/d converter in one of these speakers has probably ruined these speakers, causing it to sound like there is a limiter.

However, there are the best when it comes to the size comparison, flatter than the micro ilouds, small genelecs, any other in the price range,IMO


I think they are great for those who are looking to mix/master/produce music, in small rooms, obviously with room treatment.

Amazing small speakers
Matty S, 08.11.2020
Bought these as a first 'professional' set of speakers, requirement being to monitor sound but also for casual listening. Space limited on my desk but needing something with great clarity & range, the Eve SC203 came with many glowing reviews. And the convenience of only needing one power plug for a stereo pair was a further persuading factor.

Now these speakers are not cheap but I am glad to report that you get what you pay for and i cannot fault anything about them. My room is not suitable for a larger monitoring set-up but I am getting a tremendous resolution and range, perfect imaging and soundstage from this little pair. My source is a PC with Asus STX II soundcard which has a very clean sound and is well matched by the SC203.

I love that I am getting a full range in such a small package. The Eve has a very clear but also smooth sound signature without any harsh frequencies or fatigue to my ears. I am confident they will be perfect for longer listening sessions and monitoring audio in various sound design and music applications.

To conclude if you have limited space and/or a less than ideal room then the SC203 may be the best smaller monitors for the money that are suitable for a wide range of applications. I also purchased the Fostex SUBmini to use with them which is a perfect match, hugely improves the sound of the SC203 via a bigger bass response without breaking the bank.

Feature Packed, Solid Build Quality, Detailed, Great Sound
JDR888, 18.01.2020
I chose the Eve Audio SC-203 for several reasons & they've lived up to my expectations. My use case is general & critical listening at my desk, and recording.

Features that were crucial: Rear passive radiator instead of a port. This is a sophisticated functional technology that also eliminates issues related to moving air particularly from a rear port - including speaker placement; Grill protected non-exposed cones/tweeters in the front; Built-in USB interface with DSP (with many options, including EQ) & Cirrus Logic 192kHz/24bit A/D converter; Good free field frequency response ( 62Hz - 21kHz) without the optional sub-woofer; TOSLink optical input; RCA stereo input; Size (they're very compact); Included rubberized decoupling pads with 2 possible angles (eliminating the need to buy separate pads);Assembly, testing, quality control in Berlin, Germany; Optional well thought out mic stand adapters; Optional sub-woofer with remote control.

The speakers work really well & I'm very happy. You do have to be careful when handling them to not damage the passive radiator on the back. The only thing I really don't like is the unfortunate decision to use the "Master-Slave" terminology which the industry should really stop (see Dr. Ron Eglash's paper "The Master-Slave Analogy in Technical Literature" for more on this).
