    Amphion studio monitors

    I appreciate your thoughtful reply, napilopez. I think what I'm trying to get at, or at least one point I'm trying to get at, is that the speaker measurement metrics used here may not be as applicable for the purposes of studio monitors, or monitors as mixing tools, than they are for speakers...

    Studio Monitors - Dynaudio Core 47 vs Neumann KH310

    Did you end up getting the KH 310? I’d just offer one more recommendation which is that the KH310 is neutral and has great bass extension in a compact footprint, but for mixing I found I really needed a second pair of speakers to check the vibe of the mix with. Even something small and cheap...

    Amphion studio monitors

    This is a slightly old thread but I just wanted to chime in. I picked up a pair of the one18 a couple months ago after demoing both the one15 and one18. I like this forum a lot and I appreciate the science-based measurements/reviews of speakers and amps, but in this case I think people are...

    Can I move things in room after calibration?

    I wonder if Trinnov has a more efficient microphone with that three-pronged design...? I was surprised how loud it had to be as well. The Sonarworks calibration has a setup procedure that sets a minimum volume threshold before it will begin and that's how loud it had to be before it would start...

    Looking to upgrade near-field studio monitors

    If you check the Geithain specs I think it shows 50 Hz at more like -5Db.

    Looking to upgrade near-field studio monitors

    Update #2 I guess there's no way around the fact that a 5" woofer just can't move enough air to really reproduce those lower frequencies. I'm having trouble mixing my kicks and sub sounds and I'm wondering which would be more effective; do I go through the somewhat difficult task of setting up...

    Best Speakers (Studio Monitors) to Hear Reverb

    Based on the speakers I have at the moment, if the high end is hyped it places instruments like guitars, percussion, and vocals closer to you, almost like a holographic effect. This creates a sense of depth in the recording. My other speakers measure more flat, and everything, whether it's hi...

    Best Speakers (Studio Monitors) to Hear Reverb

    I have two sets of monitors in front of me right now, Geithain RL906 and Amphion one15. I decided to do a quick and dirty reverb test and here's what I noticed. The Amphion has more midrange and so I hear the reverb in that range with more volume in detail. If I pitch up the source, in this...

    Can I move things in room after calibration?

    Thanks for the replies. Is it okay to change the EQ settings on the rear of the monitors or will that throw off the measurements?

    Can I move things in room after calibration?

    I recently took the plunge and bought Sonarworks for room correction eq. I was taken aback by how loud the speakers have to be during the calibration process. Living in an apartment in Tokyo, the calibration process was a nerve wracking experience, not only because of the noise but because the...

    What would you like the measurement to show you?

    If that were the case the mixes would not translate well.

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    My sentiments exactly. If an ideal listening monitor and an ideal mixing monitor are indeed different, it would be invaluable to identify the criteria of a good mixing monitor and measure for that.

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    Not being sarcastic here, but have you heard them/mixed on them? I had a pair of Amphion one15s on loan for a few weeks and my impression was that, while they didn’t wow me on first listen, the tracks that I worked on while I had them tended to sound more balanced and “professional.” Almost as...

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    I have a pair too and I like to use them. I couldn’t tell you why though other than that the changes I make while using them seem to sound good on other sources. And I can use them for a long time without my ears getting tired.

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    Agree. But why are the NS10s good for mixing?

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    Sorry, I meant engineers as in mixing engineers and producers. I should have clarified.

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    No, no, that was exactly my point. :) I guess I see a lot of the science on the listening side but not on the mixing side, and it would be nice to have that represented too. Gearspace is full of engineers who mostly go by what they hear and ASR is full of (I assume) audiophiles who, in large...

    ATC speakers / Monitors

    Just to pile on, I think there is some irony in this. How much of the music that audiophiles enjoy on their objectively well-measuring systems was mixed and mastered on ATC, PMC, etc. ( in other words "snake oil/inferior") monitors? I do believe in objective measurements and blind listening...

    Looking to upgrade near-field studio monitors

    Just an update if anyone is interested. In the end I was able to get the RL906 for a price that was in my budget so I went for it. Really happy to have these speakers in my room! Thanks very much to everyone on this site for the advice on alternatives. Any set of speakers is going to have...
