Monitors high end Bookshelf 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 speakers.
