Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 - Pair – No Longer Available

Active 3-way near-field, main and mastering monitor pair
MFR# MicroMain27 Gen1 - Pair

Product Description

A speaker whose reputation speaks for itself. The Barefoot Sound MicroMain27 has quickly earned a primary role in the studios of Michael Brauer, Butch Vig, Rich Costey, Mark Linett...the list goes on and on. Why? It's compact, powerful, and, above all, neutral. Dubbed a "nearfield on steroids," the 3-way MM27 breaks down the barrier between nearfields, mains and mastering monitors. It may well be the only monitor you ever need.

  • Nearfield size with the power of a main and clarity of a mastering speaker
  • Integrated dual 10" subwoofer design supports clean upper bass and mids


Nearfield size with the power of a main and clarity of a mastering speaker
As the project studio emerged in the early 2000s, Thomas Barefoot recognized the need for a studio monitor that delivered big-time performance in a limited space. His ultimate goal was to eliminate the need for multiple monitors and create one everyday workhorse that never needed to be second-guessed. The result is the MicroMain27, packed with the authority of a main monitor with the clarity and depth of a mastering speaker, all in a nearfield size that feels at home in studios big and small. Handcrafted in San Francisco, the MM27 is your "nearfield on steroids," behaving and translating like a nearfield, just with more controlled and far more extended bass response.

Integrated dual 10" subwoofer design supports clean upper bass and mids
Part of the magic that makes the MM27 work so well is the integrated dual 10" subwoofers. Working alongside a 1" soft-dome tweeter and dual 5" midbass drivers, the two subs are housed in compact sealed enclosures, yielding stable LF control and excellent impulse response. Because the sub motor structures are locked together, the opposing forces cancel each other out, keeping the MM27 steady even at roaring output levels. Even more importantly, the integrated sub design takes the pressure off the mid-bass drivers, resulting in a dramatically cleaned-up upper bass and midrange. All in all, the MM27 delivers an ultra-linear response extending from 38Hz-20kHz. It's ideal for critical listening, when it counts.

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.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
