These studio monitors are incredible. In terms of price these are considered slightly above entry level, but they most definitely give more expensive studio monitors a run for their money. I was previously using the Presonus Eris 8’s, and while they were definitely providing a more than reliable monitoring source for mixing, these monitors are no doubt a significant step up in almost all aspects. The low end is impressively tight and punchy, the highs are textured without being harsh. But what impresses me most is the balance between a detailed sound, and a wide stereo image/soundstage. Usually if a studio monitor/headphone has good stereo imaging and soundstaging, it’s at the sacrifice of detail. But this most definitely a significant balance of both elements.

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.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
