Very impressed so far, excellent sound reproduction, tight bass, crisp highs. DSP modes and room switch make for tailored sound listening depending on speaker placement, Bluetooth is an added bonus for sure and well built nice and heavy. Glad I chose them over the KRK,s. Best of all is there made in Canada!!!

I had been on the hunt for some studio monitors for a while. I had tested multiple monitors out in the store and even taken some home to try out. My biggest problem was space. I knew I wanted bigger monitors but I just couldn't afford the space. A sales associate suggested these to me. I was a little taken back by the design. They looked like nothing I had seen on the market. I didn't really know what to think of them. That was until I witnessed what they were capable of in person. just looking at them I thought there would be no way they would be able to produce any sort of low-end due to how shallow their design was. Was I ever wrong. The Duel opposing passive radiators make these things sound more than twice as big as any 8" monitor you'll ever come across. it still screws with my head a bit as I can't seem to grasp just where all the low-end comes from. it's really something to witness for yourself. there's also the crispness of the ring radiators. The highs are extremely detailed and crisp without a hint of sounding brittle. If these will last me forever I will never want another set of monitors. the features they have also set them apart from other monitors on the market. different DSP modes for reference Hi Fi and theatre, not to mention the Bluetooth connectivity make these things more versatile than a Swiss Army knife. one thing to note however. The radiators on the left speaker need a little bit of Break In Time and some volume pushed through them before they begin to fire properly. be patient and you will be rewarded with amazing sound.
