The first of Event's new Studio Precision 8 monitors are is now shipping. Designed by Frank Kelly and Walter Dick, the new monitors feature next-generation technology, including the woofer, tweeter, amplifiers, bass ports and a new look: piano-black mirror finish with gold trim.

"The Studio Precision monitors are undoubtedly the finest direct-field designs I've ever been involved with," said Dick, who was responsible for the overall system design, including the new transducers. "The new soft-dome, high-frequency radiator [tweeter] creates a significantly expanded stereo soundstage as compared to our previous designs, and it delivers incredibly precise imaging, with even subtle panning movements easily discernable."

"Our new 8-inch, low-frequency driver offers a whole new level of performance, in part through the use of a neodymium magnet," said Kelly, Event's VP of engineering and the architect of the Studio Precision's amplifiers. "Neodymium—a rare Earth material at the forefront of loudspeaker technology—gives the driver exceptionally low distortion characteristics. It also makes it far stronger, despite its lower weight, and gives it a greater level of output efficiency—i.e., more output per watt—than a traditional woofer. And since the neodymium driver takes up less space in the cabinet than a standard woofer, we have effectively increased the cabinet volume so the overall system bass response is extended, as well."

The Studio Precision 8 is available in biamplified and passive versions. Both models use 1-inch, soft-dome, high-frequency radiator. The driver's soft-dome design helps prevent ear fatigue associated with metal-dome tweeter. The biamplified model features 280 watts per speaker (200 watts LF driver/80 watts HF driver), offers custom-designed driver components, features low-noise semiconductors and audio-grade film capacitors. The active model includes continuously variable low- and high-frequency trim controls, continuously variable input-sensitivity control and a switchable 80Hz highpass filter. For easy connection, both models offer balanced XLR and 1/4-inch inputs.
