"Great For an Alternate Mono Monitor"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I use the Avantone MixCube to reference monitor in mono. While I'm usually mixing on a pair of full range speakers I find that the MixCube is unusually accurate and revealing in the mid range, as well as surprising revealing in dynamics and reverb. As much as I use and love this monitor I would not recommend it to anyone who doesn't already have a set of full range monitors. The highs and lows are a tad lack luster, but of course that's one of the main reason's I purchased it. I would say it emulates the functionality of a Yamaha NS-10. On the downside, when I first received this product it had a damaged pot and the amp wasn't working properly. zZounds.com quickly remedied the issue by sending me a new one, it took about a week. The one they sent seems to have somewhat of a sticky power switch compared to the last one which is strange, but it sounds great and that's what matters. In conclusion, this little speaker looks great, sounds great, and is becoming an essential part of my mixing routine. It's a workhorse to say the least.

"The Best Mixing Speaker IN THE WORLD!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I've been writing songs and producing since I was 15 Y.O., if these was out when I was 15 NONE of my mixes would of sucked and all of them would of been ready and playable for ANY playback device including cell phones and TV's! Praise the Lord for Avantone making these, because these do sound by the NS-10 Model "If It Sounds Good on These, It Would Sound Good Anywhere"! I just brought another Mono speaker so I can use these as my Main & Mixing Monitors!

"Great mix monitor"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The Avantone is one of the best mix tools you can buy after investing in a good set of full range monitors. Due to its limited frequency response and by using only one of these in mono, you can quickly hone in on a proper balance. I was amazed when I first set this up and listened to a mix I had almost finished. What I thought was a well balanced mix was not. Certain tracks were overpowering others. Vocals were rough. I was hearing distortion that I didn't hear on my stereo monitors. I realized I was over-driving and clipping some of my plugins. Once I corrected the mix and got it to sound good on the Avantone, I switched back to the stereo monitors and was blown away by how much better it sounded. I would highly recommend this monitor to anyone who wants to do any serious mixing. The build quality seems very high. When you first see the smooth shiny surface, you think it is plastic, but once you feel it and pick it up, you know that it is a heavy wood shell with a durable lacquered finish. The only negative aspect of the product is the power button. It should be located on the front or side. With it being on the back, you have to either feel around for the switch or turn the speaker to power it up or down. Not very convenient, especially if it is set back on a console shelf. But this is a minor annoyance once you hear the results of using it. Buy one and you will be thrilled that you did after you hear the difference it makes.
