Event Studio Precision 8

The first time you listen to a pair of Studio Precision monitors, you'll almost surely shake your head in disbelief - then break out in a smile. We've seen it happen time and time again: People just can't believe that they're hearing a sound so big and so alive coming from direct field monitors. But your ears aren't deceiving you. Studio Precision monitors deliver a sound that's much wider, much deeper, much more defined, and packed with much more low-end punch than mere mortal direct field monitors. Simply put, they far exceed people's sonic expectations - and by a huge margin.

You see, even after years of designing a slew of award-winning products for the professional studio monitor market - the 20/20bas, Project Studio, and Tuned Reference biamplified monitors, to name a few - our venerable engineers, Frank Kelly and Walter Dick, were still on their quest to deliver the ultimate direct field monitor. They wanted to come up with a totally new design that would surpass anything they had done to date. A design that would cause recording musicians around the world to sit up and truly take notice. In short, a design that would bring a whole new dimension to the direct field monitoring experience.

So that's what they did. Sure, it took them two-and-a-half years. But, hey, they had to start from scratch.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Event products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (67 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Read here if you're thinking of Factory Reseals"
Sound: Unfortunately, I bought the "factory reseal pair" to find that the individual speakers couldn't have sounded more different from each other. Listening to a mono source from them created two completely-different-sounding sources. After returning the speaker that I thought was the problem, I received a replacement which, though better than the first one, is still not an exact match the other speaker - something the hi and lo trim adjustments cannot make up for. As a result, the soundstage is flawed and it's hard to get a good read on them. I am sending the signal to them from an MAudio Delta 1010LT soundcard. For the record, though, the sound coming from the good speaker I have is amazing. However, I recommend against the factory reseals for 2 reasons: (1) quality control may not be up to snuff and (2) Event claims they don't "factory reseal" anything...which means these are nothing but dealer demos. Feature: Great adjustments on the back and great build quality. The high and low trim adjustments are crucial to tuning for a room. Quality: See above. The good one is of great quality. The other two I've received...not so much. Value: I'm callling this a "5" because, for me, it'll either by a 10 or a 1 once I get a matching speaker. Manufacturer Support: Event was very honest with me about my problems. They told me that ZZounds can call their dealer demos anything they like, but that Event categorically does not "factory reseal" anything and therefore the EVent rep told me that "factory reseal" is nothing but a BIIIIIIG stretch of the truth. The Wow Factor: Beautiful piano black finish. They look gorgeous. Overall: I'll reserve my overall comment for when (or IF) I ever receive a quality matching pair of these.

"Event ASP8...perfect for rap/R&B/Hip hop tracks."
Sound: The sound is absoultely beautiful. No harshness whatsoever, bass is great, mids clean and clear, highs smooth and clean. Feature: Beautifuly polished! Quality: The best made monitor I've seen to date. Value: Pair the Event ASP8 with Wharfedale 8.2A, and you have a set-up good enough to pre-master on. Manufacturer Support: Event has some great customer service. The Wow Factor: I WANTED it, and I got it. Overall: You cannot beat them for rap/hip hop/R&B, these are THE mons.
