How music is suppose to soundAs soon as I turned them on I smiled. This is how music is suppose to sound. Our audience doesn't get the chance to always enjoy engineer standard audio. They listen on what they can get ahold of. Grandma's radio, a laptop or their car's system. And that's exactly the sound I got!!! The sound of driving down the beach in my VW Bus just enjoying the California sun. It's a very nostalgic sound because that how we first experienced the songs we love.
I have a pair of JBL 6328 as my main monitors but these are exactly what I need for telling me how a mix feels. I have my JBLs to tell me how they sound, but these Avantones definitely tell me how the song feels. After all that is the purpose of music. We're suppose to make sure our music evokes the right emotions.
These are my new go to reference monitors for how the mix translates to other systems. But most importantly, they'll tell me how the song feel. They're the right investment if you're looking for everything I mentioned.
Great job Avantone!

Mixcubes Are LifesaversI was skeptical at first but once I got these guys up and running (and burnt in) I was amazed how easy it was to listen through these in mono and hear everything going on in the mix from levels to mid range mud. If you can make it sound good on these, it will sound good anywhere. I use them more than my mains now. If you are having trouble with translation from your room to your car / ipod definitely try these out. They will open your eyes and make it possible for you to hear clearly without question what is happening in your mix.
