Avantone Active MixCubes Pair (Cream)
Compact Reference Monitors
The Avantone ACTIVE MIXCUBE is designed to be high resolution, full-range powered mini-reference monitors for fixed or remote locations. The secondary engineering facet was to create a timeless design that compliments a single full range transducer. Studios primarily use 2-way and 3-way large monitors designed to represent a wide range reference viewpoint at higher listening levels. However, in the newly developing age of High Definition Audio, there is still a need to hear what your mix will sound like when played back over small bass-challengedsystems such as televisions, clock radios, computers, car stereos, ipod docking stations, etc. It is important to make mixing judgments based partially on listening to reference monitors that will not impart tonal anomalies caused by crossovers or inferior full range drivers. Particular attention is always paid to the critical mid-range vocal/guitar/keyboard areas. This is where having a full-range monitor without a crossover is truly revealing. More than twelve months of R&D, comparative listening and tweaking went into the voicing of the AVANTONE Active MixCubes. The result is a very smooth sounding, full range upgrade from those old familiar 5C Sound Cubes engineers were so fond of in the 1980s-1990s.
