IK Multimedia is delivering its iLoud Micro Monitors, ultra-compact reference studio monitors that offers accurate linear frequency response, deep bass and a small footprint.
IK Multimedia said the iLoud Micro Monitors are ideal for mixing and mastering in makeshift studios and on location. With an ultra-linear frequency response, best-in-class bass (down to 55Hz @ -3db) and detailed sound, the monitors are said to deliver high-end sound without a high-end price.
iLoud Micro Monitors deliver detailed, clear and accurate audio in a compact, efficient and portable enclosure. They are able to do this in conjunction with the DSP-controlled frequency response, accurate and time aligned crossover and smart design.
The drivers are powered by four efficient class D power amplifiers that push out a combined 50 watts RMS of power. Each speaker sports a ¾-inch silk dome tweeter, a 3-inch custom composite material performance woofer and a large flaring front-firing bass reflex port.
The system provides a flat and linear speaker response in any listening environment due to its on-board 56-bit digital signal processor (DSP). The DSP handles the frequency and phase response of the monitors and also manages the dynamic range so that the drivers are always under control. The DSP also acts as a digital crossover allowing for smooth transitions between the drivers themselves.
This DSP can be adjusted to suit different listening environments thanks to three EQ switches. One is for treble, one for bass and a Desktop toggle that lets users optimize iLoud Micro Monitors for use in either a free field or desktop setup.
The monitors can be positioned on a desktop at two angles of inclination with their dual-position isolation bases, or in free-field positioning on standard microphone stands thanks to their integrated threaded mic stand mounts.
iLoud Micro Monitors accept both RCA (cable included) and ⅛-inch wired connections and can also be paired for Bluetooth streaming with all Bluetooth audio streaming-enabled devices.
The monitors are priced at $299.99 per pair.
