The main monitors at apartment 42 are still the reliable KS Digital C-88 with their precise and well translating sound. For checking the sound in mono and with a kind of radio/mid-emphasized setting, an Avantone Active Mixcube comes in handy from time to time. The concept of this little speaker is, to have neither a high, nor a low end, and no crossovers at the same time. It sounds like your little radio receiver in the kitchen and allows for very accurate balancing of everything going on in the mid-range of your mix, along with a nice reality check.
New at the studio is a set of the prize-winning Harman Kardon Soundsticks. This 2.1 speaker system was designed to go along with your dektop computer and delivers the sound, most younger people might listen to nowadays. The original Soundsticks became part of the permanent collection at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. Reality check once more.
