Ex Machina Pulsar 3-Way Active Studio Monitor - Pair
The Ex Machina Pulsar 3-Way Active Studio Monitor may be the smaller of the brand's two current offerings, but the monitor will excel in studio set-ups of all types. Whether using the Pulsar in nearfield and midfield position in larger control rooms or as the main monitor resource in a smaller space, Ex Machina has created listening tools that you can depend on for critical accuracy.
A key ingredient to the success of the Pulsar is the cabinet construction that Ex Machina employs. These sealed, highly braced cabinets are built with thick Valchromat, which helps to stop group delay and turbulence. The material is known for being far superior for acoustic enclosures, preferred by many over MDF and plywood.
The midrange speaker housed in the upper portion of the Pulsar is made from an extremely lightweight, yet stiff material called TeXtreme. Due to the material's makeup, Ex Machina has been able to create a cone that works perfectly in tandem with a free-standing tweeter, a first in monitor design. While many designers go for aluminum tweeters, the Pulsar employs a material called GrapheneQ, which has a better stiffness to weight ratio that makes for a super-wide sweet spot.
For those essential low end sounds, Ex Machina has teamed with SEAS for an exclusive 22cm subwoofer with large magnets, voice coils and symmetrical suspension. The subwoofer's aluminum alloy diaphragms allow for a 28mm of linear peak to peak excursion and can be pushed to 56mm before being damaged. All of these features add up to the Pulsar being able to push out powerful low frequencies with the speed and accuracy needed to make split second decisions in the studio.
Power and DSP
In terms of power and processing, the Pulsar comes well equipped. The monitor employs Class D amplifiers from Second Generation Hypex Ncore, which efficiently drive the entire range with excepteptional linear power. You can expect extremely low distortion and low output impedance. Ex Machina also uses one SHARC DSP for each loudspeaker to power its digital crossovers and protection limiters, in addition to AKM Velvet Sound converters and a low jitter clock for smooth conversion.
S/N and Calibration Tag
What makes everything inside the Pulsar work in harmony? Ex Machina has incorporated a serial number specific set of measurements for each monitor that the brand creates. When a monitor has been finished and is preparing to be shipped, it goes through an in-house calibration process that linearizes the unit's frequency response and phase response. This means that each monitor created by Ex Machina matches exactly with every other monitor the brand has created.
