    Really Does Work

    I'm writing this review as a "reverse warning," because the Primacoustic monitor pads may seem like they could be an "audio snake oil" product, embraced by those who think running a green Sharpie around the outside rim of a CD makes it sound better. But these pads are the real deal and make an audible and very desirable difference, particularly with imaging and bass accuracy. The improvement is apparent with any speakers I've tried. I used them previously on ADAM speakers and am now using them with KRK's VXT 6 speakers; the improvement was about the same for both. While not exactly cheap, these pads are a simple, effective way to upgrade the accuracy of what you're hearing.

    True story: At an AES convention, Primacoustic had two pairs of speakers set up, one pair without and one with the pads. The guy doing the demo would switch between them. I heard one of the attendees arguing with him because the difference was so obvious he thought there HAD to be some kind of trickery involved. I went up to the attendee and said "Look, I have nothing to do with this company, but I own a pair and the difference really is that obvious...there's no trickery." As a studio accessory, these pads are second only to an uninterruptible power supply for my computer :)

    Based on reviews from professionals and semi professionals alike, I have long since been wanting to add these to my studio arsenal. After putting these to use in my studio, my decision to switch has proven more than sound, it has me wondering why I didn't switch sooner.

    I'm formerly a MoPad user (which are not at all a bad product, especially for their price range) - but I am completely blown away by this product. The Recoil Stabilizers have enabled me to mix much more easily and effectively than I have prior to utilizing them. Frequency response from my monitors is now exceptionally tight and defined across the spectrum, imaging is MICRO-pinpoint in accuracy, transients are as sharp (or as dull) as I want them to be - in short, I'm able to really hone in on my mixes without having to THINK about honing in, the truth of my mixes are just THERE, enabling me to make good decisions without occasionally having to guess. I'd recommend this product highly to any engineer, regardless of environment or experience.

    I also want to take a moment and thank my sales rep, Chris Lewis, for always providing the best level of customer service I have ever had from any gear retailer - he's truly amazing, transparent as can be and is the main reason why Sweetwater is my choice for studio gear. Thanks, Chris!!
