    Harman’s JBL Professional has introduced the first two models in its new 7 Series Master Reference Monitors, the 708i and the 705i. Both 2-way designs, the new 708i (8-inch) and 705i (5-inch) incorporate a new miniature high-frequency transducer—the 2409H—utilizing JBL’s low-mass, annular diaphragm design that allows very high output with low distortion and high frequency response to 35kHz. JBL also engineered two new high-excursion 5-inch and 8-inch woofers, the 725G and 728G, that deliver robust low-frequency output into the 30… View this story

    Barefoot Sound has unveiled its newest studio monitor, the MicroMain45, a 3-way active monitor with controls for equalization contour and an input level stepped attenuator. The new MicroMain45 offers the same signal path, amplifier and driver technologies as the flagship MiniMain12, but is stripped down to the bare essentials to deliver high performance at a more affordable price.  The cabinet has a total of 14 liters internal volume, sealed woofer and midrange enclosures, machined aluminum baffle plate, and long fiber… View this story

    Designed for critical listening in the studio or at home, the new PreSonus Temblor T8 active subwoofer complements any full-range monitoring system, making it well-suited for personal studios, gaming, audiophiles, and home theaters. Like its larger sibling the Temblor T10, the T8 naturally extends the low-frequency response of full-range loudspeakers without overshadowing them. It delivers punchy, musical lows and offers user controls that include a continuously variable low-pass filter (50 Hz to 130 Hz) for creating a smooth crossover transition… View this story

    Genelec has introduced the new 8351, a 3-way Smart Active Monitor (SAM), designed with mechanical, acoustical and signal-processing designs linked closely together. The 8351 borrows its size attribute from Genelec’s 8050, with dimensions of 17.75 x 11.25 x 11 (h x w x d) inches. The center of the 8351’s enclosure is outfitted with the Minimum Diffraction co-axial midrange/tweeter driver evolved from the 8260, providing extremely accurate imaging and improved sound quality, with a very high degree of accuracy, both… View this story

    Ramon Morales has always loved music, playing guitar in his youth and eventually ending up behind a mixing console. After attending the recording program at The Art Institute of Houston (Texas), he served as an intern at one of the city’s top studios, and also mixed live shows whenever he had the opportunity. Both experiences put him on a path to working as a monitor engineer for top artists like Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé, and currently, Lady Gaga. I recently had… View this story

    PMC has announced the launch of the QB1 Active (QB1-A), large-scale, high-resolution main studio monitors with analog and digital (up to 192 kHz) inputs. It will be on display later this week at the 137th AES Convention in Los Angeles (booth 1628). Designed for either soffit-mounted or free-standing use, each QB1-A incorporates the latest generation of PMC’s driver designs, Class-D amplification, Advanced Transmission Line (ATL) bass-loading technology, DSP control, and a quartet of 10-inch carbon fiber/Nomex piston bass drivers. With… View this story

    Justin Pommer is no stranger to the recording studio. After starting out as a drummer close to 20 years ago, Pommer began engineering in what he calls “mini-studios,” and over the past two decades in commercial facilities and various studios of his own, he learned his way around the mixing board, honing his sound and craft and ultimately moving into producing. Over those years, Pommer has recorded numerous artists that range from Tower Of Power to Tom Petty, and he… View this story

    IsoAcoustics has introduced Arista, an aluminum acoustic isolation stand for studio monitors and bookshelf loudspeakers. It will be on display at the upcoming AES convention in Los Angeles at booth 1651. Arista stands utilize the company’s patented “floating design” and have a unique integrated tilt adjustment that enables the user to dial-in the optimum tilt angle.  With an overall size of 6 inches (w) x 7.5 inches(d), the stand is designed for medium-size studio monitors and loudspeakers weighing up to… View this story

    At the upcoming AES convention in Los Angeles, Crane Song (booth 1013) is introducing the new Avocet II discrete class A monitor controller as well as the new INSIGNA tube equalizer. The Avocet II, functionally and operationally identical to its predecessor, is a stereo monitor controller capable of operating in surround configurations up to 7.1, supporting three digital inputs, three analog inputs and a headphone system. It utilizes the latest generation 32-bit component from microprocessor manufacturer AKM in the digital-to-analog… View this story

    1) Both Ears Or None. Using only one ear encourages much higher sound levels. Good custom molds provide 20 to 25 dB of isolation, allowing lower monitoring levels for artists, and reduced stage noise to compete with front of house. Mixed mode monitoring combining wedges and personal monitors ultimately results in higher overall SPL. 2) Hard-Wired Equals Hi-Def. Wired personal monitors will always sound better than wireless. In addition to loss of stereo separation and frequency response, multiplexed stereo wireless… View this story
