Event TR8 Reference Studio Monitors

Do your mixes suffer from buried vocals, overwhelming bass, screetchy guitars, or other sonic unpleasantries? No doubt your monitors simply aren't giving you an accurate picture of what's going on in your mix. How to make the problems go away? Switch to Event monitors -- the monitors famous for their "mixes you can trust" sound. (Just ask the people who have won Grammy awards for mixes they've done on them.)

And now it's easier than ever to make the switch. Introducing the Tuned Reference 5 and Tuned Reference 8. Their names tell the whole story: These monitors are precision tuned to provide flat frequency response and uncolored sound, giving you a true sonic reference for mixing. So when you mix on a Tuned Reference monitor, you know your mixes will translate accurately to other playback systems. (Which is, after all, the whole point.)

You might think that this level of mix precision comes at a high price. But thanks to a powerful new ultra-efficient amplifier (actually 2 of them, since these are biamplified systems), Event's able to bring you high definition, non-fatiguing monitoring at prices so low they're downright silly. But don't let the cost fool you: The TR series monitors are filled with time-tested Event technology, and designed by the same engineering team behind our full line of critically acclaimed monitors.

So pick up a pair of TR monitors today at your favorite music store. Your mixes will thank you.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Event products.

4.5 out of 5 (118 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Solid Sound, great stereo imaging, I'm inpressed."
Sound: Clear, open sound. Tried a few others side by side. Only a set of Mackies more than twice the price had better sound because the bass was cleaner. Man, when I stuck my head between these babies it sounded like the singer was right straight in front of me. When the backup vocals came in they were like surrounding the vocalist...what excellent stereo imaging. Feature: I love the simplicity. When you have great sound you don't need to tweak. Quality: The quality is in the amps and speakers...thats what really counts. The paint is a little thin but I don't look at the speakers when I'm mixing, I just gotta hear the sound. Value: Best value for my money. Manufacturer Support: Don't know. Hope I never need to. The Wow Factor: I needed good speakers to mix with. Even Sony pro headphones give me at lot more ear fatigue than these. Overall: I think I will use these guys for a long time and be real happy with the ol' workhorses.
Style of Music: Worship various styles.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. Event TR8 Studio Monitors Customer Review
Sound: I A/B'ed the Event TR8's and M-Audio BX8's with an LTJ Bukem Drum and Bass CD, and a 60's Love Jam CD. I had a fresh pair of Sony 7506 headphones to use as my control group since I'm very familiar with them. I switched back and forth quite a bit, listening to the music in the headphones, then on one pair of monitors, then I did the same thing with the other pair. I then switched between the monitors themselves. The TR8's came etremely close to the 7506's - even in a room with no sound dampening, I still heard and felt the same thing the headphones were telling me when I listened to the Event's. The BX8's however seemed to have poor stereo imaging, and a few problems across many of the frequency ranges - I even played with the spatial switches they feature on the back - no dice. The BX8's might be more like the Yamaha NS10's in that they will produce a disco smile in your mixes because you'll sweeten up the EQ'ing in your mixes to hear the detail you want... I would rather take a transparent monitor and let my ear discern this, as I plan to mix many styles and moods of music. Feature: TUNED REFERENCE: No switches to tweak for acoustics. I set these up in my home studio and they sounded as good as they did at the store. Quality: Quality at an excellent price. I had an Event Tria system before these, I never had to replace a driver, don't expect I'll need to with these. Value: Go listen to them. Manufacturer Support: Owning an affordable, high quality product that I've never had problems with or needed support for is enough support for me. The Wow Factor: Not as "cool" or "techno" looking as some other near-field monitors out there, but damn if they don't sound incredible, especialy for the price. Maybe they should get a 10 for the fact that they aren't distractingly attractive next to my computer screen. Overall: For the price and the quality of their function, I don't see another candidate that can beat these monitors. I might add a subwoofer.
Style of Music: Progressive Dance, Downtempo, Ambient

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
