Avantone Active MixCube Mini Reference Monitor - Black, Pair
The Avantone Active MixCubes™ are 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 two-way and three-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-challenged” systems 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 & tweaking went into the voicing of the AVANTONE 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 and1990s. Listening tests reveal that the MixCubes™ have a smoother mid range, more accurate, transparent top end response with extended bass while maintaining the basic characteristics of those original little cubes.

Well built, impressive looking. Pretty unimpressive sound quality though.
These are fantastic for checking your mixes in mono or just gaining a different perspective. If it sounds good on these it will sound good pretty much anywhere. They really focus from about 100hz to 10khz, allowing you to hone in on important midrange frequencies. Well worth the purchase!
Being able to jump between these and my good speakers quickly is such a time saver.
Less ear fatigue than listening to my matched NS-10M &no crossover points in the design.
