Avantone and world-class mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge have teamed up to release the Avantone CLA10 Studio Monitor. This is a replica of one of the classic studio monitors in modern history, the Yamaha NS10M, which has been used on hit albums across genres throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

Used by many of the industry's top mix engineers, the famous "white cone in the black box" monitor remains a standard the world over. For the first time since production of the original model ceased in 2001, a replica of this monitor will be back in production and pleasing ears in studios everywhere.

When it came time to create the CLA-10's cabinet, Avantone and Chris Lord-Alge stayed true to form, employing MDF for the internal portion of the monitor and a sleek wood veneer on the outside. The rest of the cabinet's makeup remains the same with some small adjustments for better and higher grade materials. The crossover network uses the same value capacitors and the inductors match the dc resistance, winding dimensions and value of the original.

Avantone and Chris Lord-Alge built a specific tweeter for the CLA10 called the AV10-MHF. With some research help from a parts supplier for the classic monitor, this tweeter features custom tooled parts that match the original. The AV10-MLF woofer cone also matches the original in both stiffness and weight, and the only change is that the cone is pressed as opposed to lapped.

Avantone is extremely excited by the side-by-side comparisons saying that "All of our testings revealed no tonal difference or response between ours and the original." Chris Lord-Alge pulls no punches either, "I put my mixing reputation on these great speakers and I am mixing on them as I write this.”
