I recently upgraded my studio mains to the sE Electronics Munro Egg 150 monitoring system. Instantly, I was amazed at the level of detail the Eggs revealed in my mixes; they bring out the good, the bad, and the ugly. The Eggs have eliminated the "guesswork" I'm so used to from my old studio monitors and has yielded a level of translation I hadn't experienced before. Due to their stunning accuracy, the Eggs have exponentially sped up the mixing process for me. The "dummy proof" sweet spot indicators are super helpful in nailing the speaker placement. Bottom line: if you want your mixes to sound and translate better, you need these speakers!
I bought these at 2012 Gearfest and WOW are they something. I've never owned any monitors or home h-fi gear that even comes close. What they remind me of is the first time I recorded in a REAL studio with soffit mounted JBL professional monitors (but maybe not quite as loud). Even in my unprofessionally treated project studio I can rely on what I hear and the sweetspot is huge. I would highly recommend these to anyone that is looking for PRO monitoring!
Review of the sE Electronics Munro Egg 150 Monitoring System
I've had my SE Munro Egg 150's for a couple of weeks now and couldn't be happier. The setup was intuitively easy. The manual is brief but gives the all the essential information and setup advice I needed. The speakon connections have a nice, secure feel to them. The 'aiming LEDs' work great. I still haven't turned mine off...they're not that annoying to me.
I have my Eggs sitting on my studio console, on acoustic foam padding, angled downward to the listening position, ~4 feet apart and ~2 feet from the back wall. The sound is outstanding. My experience was consistent with the published reviews to date but the psycho-acoustic experience goes beyond that description. The transparency is incredible. The imaging is precise and remarkably 'durable' if you're a little out of position. Even though I had read the bass response was exceptional for monitors of this size, I was totally unprepared for the experience. The bass is tight, well-defined and very clear with no appreciable smearing that I could hear on my reference material. I was very pleasantly surprised at how low the monitors reached. Just as a note, I have found the mid range cut/boost to be very subtle to my listening experience. Finally, the monitors do have plenty of clean, undistorted power...more than I will ever need.
I highly recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade their studio monitoring.
