Avantone Active MixCube Mini Reference Monitor - Black, Pair

Shielded full-range mini reference monitors inspired by the legacy of the 5C Sound Cubes used in virtually all-major studios for the last 25 years
MFR# AB

Product Description

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.

Performance objective
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.

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.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
