Yamaha hs50m studio monitor

2 WAY BASS-REFLEX NEAR FIELD STUDIO MONITOR

The HS50M offers virtually flat frequency response on both ends of the audio spectrum. Both its fit and finish are top notch, and the included trim features allow for easy manipulation of unwanted sound. As can be expected from such a small cone, the low end bass is only mediocre. But for such an attractive price, the HS50M proves a hard bargain to beat.

VERSATILE, AFFORDABLE STUDIO MONITORS

There were a lot of good things about these monitors like the highs and mids, the technology is cool and they look awesome too. On the other hand, it was not all candy and roses, as the bass was heavy and blurred.

ADAM Audio A3X Active Closefield Monitors

ADAM Audio A3X Active Closefield Monitors

The reality of many modern home/personal studios is that there’s not a lot of room for large speakers. With that in mind, ADAM Audio introduces the A3X closefield powered monitor ($299 each, street).

Avantone Active Mixcube Studio Reference Monitors

Avantone Active Mixcube Studio Reference Monitors

Now that you’ve installed your new subwoofer and networked ‘intelligent’ monitors, what else could you possibly need to add to your monitoring system? Some 5-inch, full-range mini-monitors, of course!

The standard single-driver, full-range studio monitor has always been the Auratone 5C. And today, it will be the Avantone Active Mixcubes from Avant Electronics. Referencing ‘real world’ playback has never been this cute … or this smart.

Mackie hr824 Active Studio Monitors

Mackie hr824 Active Studio Monitors

Ah, conventional wisdom. Is it to be trusted in something so personal as a studio monitor? I usually listen to the conventional wisdom with only one ear open and a “show me” attitude, but I was definitely curious when it came to the Mackie HR824 studio monitors. I guess I was just about the last person in the world to have a listen to the HR824’s, but given that I’d heard nothing but positives in the two or so years that they’d been on the market, I was anxious to finally give them a try in a surround situation. So I set five of them up for a Neil Young project (Live In Berlin — 1984) that I was doing and we were off. read more…

JBL LSR4328P Studio Monitors

JBL LSR4328P Studio Monitors

The new JBL LSR4328P powered studio monitors are designed for critical stereo and multichannel audio production applications that require exceptional spectral accuracy and high SPL capability. Since so much of today’s music production is completed in acoustically untreated rooms, the LSR4300 Series was developed to compensate for those environments. It is the first professional monitor that combines JBL’s Linear Spatial Reference technology and automated RMC (Room Mode Correction), an onboard system that automatically compensates for low frequency anomalies measured at the mix position. read more…

Classic Restoration: Parmeko LSU/10 BBC Studio Monitors

Classic Restoration: Parmeko LSU/10 BBC Studio Monitors

It seems as if I have been interested in music, and the equipment that reproduces it, for as long as I can remember. It’s all the fault of the good people who produced the Radio Shack catalogs of the mid 1970’s. Fast-forwarding to today…audio, especially vintage and DIY audio, has become a borderline obsession. Still, I know nothing really explains why I bought a pair of fifty-year old 400 lb. speakers, sound unheard, and flew them across the Atlantic to New England. It’s funny; you know it never occurred to me not to. read more…

JBL LSR 6328P/6312SP Studio Monitors

JBL LSR 6328P/6312SP Studio Monitors

It’s unfortunate that many of today’s engineers are unaware that JBL is a name that at one time was virtually synonymous with studio monitors. In the days before NS10’s became ubiquitous, JBL 4311’s held that same spot in studios worldwide and they pretty much ruled the roost for large soffit-style monitors. But as most things in this business, the tastes of the production community cycle in unpredictable ways, which means that the once mighty JBL name was reduced to an afterthought in most studios for almost a generation.

The last few years though, JBL has made decisive strides technology-wise in an effort to recapture the glory from years past. Starting with the initial release of the LSR series, JBL has proved that it hadn’t forgotten how to make a monitor that engineer’s want to use. Now, with the updated LSR6300 series, JBL has once again taken its place among the elite, thanks to evolving technology that features a new twist. read more…

Emerging Technology, Surround Professional 2003

HighFidelityReview reports from the ‘Future of Surround’ panel & New Technologies Forum held at the Surround Professional 2003 Conference and Technology Showcase where subjects such as hybrid DVD-Audio discs and Super Audio CD version two (SACD 2) were discussed & new products from Minnetonka Software, SRS Labs, Dolby Laboratories and iBiquity Digital were demonstrated, where John Eargle of JBL Professional demonstrates his company’s Linear Spatial Reference active studio monitors.

Regardless of their ultimate fate in the fickle consumer marketplace, at this point both SACD and DVD-Audio are mature, established formats for production and delivery of multichannel music recordings. In contrast to Surround Conferences past, presenters no longer have to lug around unwieldy custom or home-built gear for demos – now, they can simply drop their sample discs into commercial players.

Nevertheless, in this highly competitive environment neither format completely addresses all perceived needs. As a result, evolutionary changes are afoot in both DVD-Audio and SACD. Each format is currently being enhanced to address the respective limitations for which it is most commonly criticized: DVD-Audio’s lack of backward compatibility with CD players, and SACD’s lack of video content options. These developments were among the topics tackled in the ‘Future of Surround’ panel, moderated by Bobby Owsinski, Surround 2003 Conference Chairman and Managing Director/Executive Producer at Surround Associates. read more…
