STUDIO HD

Studio HD is a compact monitor utilizing the same pleated ribbon tweeter and 8 midwoofer as its bigger brother, Classic HD. Studio HD has been a favourite among professionals for a decade.

ADDITIONAL INFO

Originally designed as a monitor for a renowned recording studio, Studio HD offers unmatched clarity and dynamics in a compact enclosure. It features an 8″ Silver/Graphite bass/midrange driver and a 1″ folded AMT tweeter.

The rear terminal plate features removable copper jumpers to facilitate bi-amplification. Independent high and low frequency contour switches allow the user to adjust the speaker to his or her listening room. Small speakers often come with trade-offs. Not the case with Studio HD. Thanks to extra deep tuning, the ultra-efficient midrange/bass driver keeps perfect rhythm down to the lowest note on the bass guitar, i.e. E 41Hz. The Studio HD can serve as front mains or as side or rear channels with ease. Coupled with the Metro subwoofer, Studio HD offers a building block approach to true high-end audio.
