Snake Speakers S802

I'm thinking about buying a pair of these.
It looks like (Maratone website) Max Martin's using these as his main monitors.

Anyone having any experience with these speakers?

What does they sound like?

Do they have a certain "signature-sound" to them?

One more question, as this is a passive speaker: Does the external preamp affect/color the sound in a "crucial" way?


Every answer is highly appreciated

years never seen or heard of them.
I would be very worried about being Barefoot around them if I where you.
Really decent monitors normally only have 3 letters in the name, ATC, PMC, JBL, KEF, B&W, K&H get the picture.
Monitors called Turbo, Cobra, Raptor and Intruder etc. are usually best avoided.
I bet those Snake Monitors are made by the same twat that makes this not to shitty tube bass amp:
Verellen Amplifiers - Products

Here is the story:

Snakespeakers (click on "the snake history")

If you rewind some 12 years or so when Cheiron studios ruled the charts, Stockholm got invaded by Max Martin mee-toos. Suddenly everybody was a songwriter / producer more or less trying to copy the Cheiron sound. Like a goldrush.

So every basement producer got the same gear - a Manley ref C and Snake monitors. This town is flooded with Ref C´s and Snake monitors.

Yeah, but are the snake's considered a good set of monitors compared to say Dynaudio's Bm6a/12a or Adam's A7/A8 ??

Max Martin don`t have them anymore. check out www.maratone.se

Dynaudio and Adams are great.

But for me It`s easier to work on NS 10 s and bryston. I have a pair of Dynaudio too. Mostly used as "show off" speakers

It depends on what you play through them.
