Equator D8 Studio Monitors
Equator Audio's new D8 (Direct 8) coaxial studio monitors are the next step in the D Series line. Geared for the recording professional, the D8 delivers the crystal clear mid range detail first presented by the D5s but with higher SPL and and much bigger bass response. Focused attention was paid to the development details to ensure that they deliver professional sonic performance. These studio monitors feature an expensive coaxially designed transducer with an 8" woofer and a 1" silk tweeter. The frequency response is 44Hz to 20KHz. The D8s cutting edge digital amplifier provides extremely low distortion with plenty of punch. The internal DSP allows for intricate pin point accurate adjustments. The D8 was designed specifically to deliver a much bigger sound while maintaining the extreme level of detail that the D5 has been proven to provide.
The D8 studio monitors have pro features; balanced XLR and balanced/unbalanced TRS inputs; a calibrated stepped level sensitivity control; a 3 alternate voice boundary selection switch; an all wood cabinet, including a wood front baffle for optimum performance; a fully extended 2.5" perfectly tuned front port, providing superior and accurate extended low-end response. And because the port is on the front baffle, the D8's can be positioned close to a wall with no fear of the low-end being choked.
The coaxial transducer design of the system incorporates a steep 4th order crossover along with a newly applied DSP aided group delay filter in order to deliver a phase accurate detailed mid-range with unobstructed clarity in that complex 900Hz-3KHz range. Guitars, voices, strings, horns, & reverb trails are very clearly and accurately portrayed and any mid range anomalies in the source material can be easily determined and addressed. Because of our matched transducer output, mid-range mix elements can be positioned in the stereo field without the fear of being misplaced. The D8 represents the next step forward in detailed clarity.
