Sonodyne, an Indian company, have now turned their focus towards studio monitors and with the SM100AK, the results are more than impressive! With a 6.5″ driver nestled inside an aluminum enclosure, the SM 100AK monitors deliver a clean, articulate sound that paints an accurate picture of what you’re tracking or editing. The cabinet is magnetically shielded, so your video monitors will never interfere with your mixing. The woofer and tweeter are each driven by 120 total watts of power, giving them plenty of “oomph” for critical nearfield monitoring. By utilizing a combination of solid aluminum die cast enclosures (which are only found in the top of the line studio monitors), high quality transducers and customized high power bi-amplification, Sonodyne SM series deliver exceptional performance at great value. When you hear how full your mixes sound through these beefy yet compact desktop monitors, you’ll be blown away!
