2 way active monitor 8" woofer 1" tweeter
:

 

The New SM 200Ak is 2 way studio reference monitor with exceptional frequency bandwidth and sound pressure level making it an ideal solution for broadcast, and professional studios.

 

The SM 200Ak enclosure combines the best of two worlds: wood and aluminum. The sturdy aluminum die cast baffle ensures that the 8" Kevlar LF and the 1" metal dome HF are firmly mounted and vibration is minimized. Additionally the curved edges of this solid baffle also minimizes diffraction. This baffle also features an integral waveguide for the HF, resulting in precise imaging and exceptional on and off axis response.

 

The inbuilt low distortion amplifier module continuously provides 150 watt to the LF and 100 watt to the HF and feature room compensating bass and treble tilts useful in difficult acoustical environments.

 

The SM 200Ak has both wall mount and stand mount options, and has lockable XLR input and link.

First run
I recently had the opportunity to take a pair of 200's away for a 3 day mixing sojourn. I had my usual reference monitors (Dynaudio BM6-A's) but thought it'd be worthwhile checking the mixes on a bigger & hopefully fuller system. The 200's did not disappoint! I was really impressed with the overall extension & even-ess of the bottom end & the imaging afforded by the detailed high's. At first, I was a concerned about the forward sounding mid but soon came to realise this provided great clarity in this critical region without it being fatiguing at all. Different to my benchmark but I came to like that & it'd take a while to 'recalibrate' when switching back.
With a new mix room nearly complete, the question is not whether to get Sonodyne's, but rather whether to get the 200's or the 300's!
Great value for money IMHO :D
