MonitorBookshelf Series

Because we make such superb speakers at a very reasonable price, we have often been asked to design a monitor for a particular purpose and have set up this range so everyone can have access to some of these models. As usual our speakers always compare favourably with other brands 2 - 3 times the cost. Monitors need to be accurate. You need to have confidence that the mastering adjustments you make are in response to a very accurate representation of the recorded audio. As a result we often use ribbon tweeters (except for the superb budget M612PS), and higher level cross-over components, for superb flat, ultra fast response and the ability to produce every micro detail. These are all passive monitors.

All speakers include grilles. All grilles are removable but any speaker can be made without grilles if you request.
