This active nearfield monitor looks good, sounds good and even feels good. To maintain good low frequency efficiency, the acoustic principle is bass reflex with a rear facing port. The cabinet construction is solid MDF 18mm thick which is Black veneered for an appealing finish.
The magnetically shielded drivers were selected for quality, not price. The 5" bass driver has a mineral-filled polypropylene cone with a high temperature voice coil and damped rubber surround.
An LED above the bass driver indicates when power is on. Each speaker is totally self contained. The overall sound is superb, partly due to the quality of the drivers and partly due to the matching of the amps to the speakers and cabinet. These are not being sold via a dealer network and are imported by the container load so pricing is very very competitive.
