Good entry-level monitors
cristbeats, 29.09.2012
After I have been relatively long with the comparison and search busy was it this year so far. I have heard of a competitor near various entry monitors ... were the Adam A7X, Event BAS V3, Yamaha HS80M, M Audio BX8 etc. ... My budget was about 400EUR per box.

In short: The Turbo 8 have made me the most fun.
They are balanced, have an insane stereo location and go down deep enough! For jazz recordings with clarinet or accordion, the flaps / key noises can be heard - this was often not the case with my hifi boxes and the other monitors!
The setting in my quite problematic 9qm room had made me worry, but was no problem! The sweetspot is relatively wide. Also the distance to the wall is no problem!

In the end it is a top production box, it does not sound too analytical (Adam A7X), so it makes fun to produce, but is compared to the event or the HS 80M much more linear and differentiated in the sound image, so mixing is also very much quite possible! (Phase problems, stereo location, depth staggering, etc.) In comparison, the HS80M and Event BAS v3 sound like with built-in compressor and smile in the frequency response. In contrast to the ADAM A7x they sound not so reserved and lame but really fun! The Frexenzverlauf is super, they go beautifully down and the highs sound really impressive Clear and do not rattle / shriek!

In my opinion the best thing in this price segment!

So, now for processing:
The speakers look very sturdy, nothing wobbles all the switches and potentiometers sit tightly.
Unfortunately, the Potis only lock in the middle. I would have liked a fine grid.
Also the 'Designed and Engeneered in Germany, Assembled in China' you can see. The front plate is not completely cleanly placed, with accurate looking you can see different gap dimensions to the housing. On the other hand, I can ignore it well, because the sound can - like in many test reports described - loose in a higher price segment play along ...
A slight background noise of the tweeters can be heard, but not more perceptible at a distance of one meter.

One of the delivered LS has paint faults and the front is then too much 'slipped'.

I think these speakers have their target audience clearly in the field of electronic music. For masters / mixing of classic / film and other areas they sound but then too fat.

Perfect
Simon1234, 13.12.2013
On recommendation, I have tested and kept these monitors. The possibilities with the connections both analog and digital are more than sufficient.

The sound is very balanced, and it is from my experience the first near-field monitors in which the room does not really matter. If properly set up the sweetspot is exactly what it should be. One should, however, deal with the height of the monitors exactly in relation to the ear. It is five cm too high, and you only hear crap. So, exceptionally, water scale and meter scale to hand, then something does not happen. If the monitors sound unsatisfactory, do not doubt the position, and not the technology.

The stereo isolation is good and you can really mix in layers.

Even if Made in China draufsteht: The processing is perfect except for a few minimal flaws in the painting.
