MunroSonic Egg 100 System (Black) Active Integrated Monitoring System
The Munro Sonic Egg 100 System has been designed for the greatest accuracy in near-field conditions, taking into account the fact that it will be used on consoles or flat surfaces. The frequency response is continuously adjustable to allow for the bass loading that can add up to 6dB to the sound level. The bass port is angled and placed as low as possible to take advantage of this effect without phase error.
Flexible, Variable Tilt Base
Near-field monitors should, by definition, remain unaffected by room size and acoustic conditions but this is rarely the case. Typically, small, rectangular cabinets and a horizontal focus plane create diffraction and reflections that interfere with both frequency and phase, both of which adversely affect stereo imaging and mix accuracy. The Egg 100 has a variable tilt base that allows perfect adjustment of the upward angle of the listening axis, so avoiding interfering reflections from the mixing console or desk surface.
Small Speaker with Big Power
This has enabled Munro Sonic to make a supremely efficient speaker system - the phase coherent bass energy results in up to 6dB low frequency headroom - which means they pack a lot of punch for such small speakers. The system comes complete with a separate control unit and amplifier which features active analogue crossovers, LF and HF trim pot EQ for location set-up, and a superb Class-A headphone amplifier, which alone is worth the cost of the control unit.
Exceptional British Engineering
The Egg 100, as with all MunroSonic products, is designed and manufactured in the UK by Munro Acoustics. The result is an exceptionally well-built, elegant and sonically purist piece of wholly British engineering.
