Don't eat it. Real flat monitoring with precise phase and minimum THD is very different then any hifi or vintage type speaker. There is a lot this kinda posts on gs.. not everyone here is professional.
However I found very interesting info in Russian forums. Guys says that 55 fantastically replaced Adam S2.5. That 88 was biting a bit in 8k ara and 55 does not.. It seems that 88 are more aggressive sounding (to me it's better) and low's was not that low as expected (to me it's better again). I think 55 gives a little compromise in that 8k.. but guys says 88 has a little bumb. However one very BIG
mastering guy in Russia was quite impressed by KS (don't know which one he tested on Namm russia in KS Digital stand).. He told that he can work on them easily. The guy replaced S2.5 is very happy with C55. S1X
are very precise, great and translates well. There is a little marketing warmth above 12khz and tweeters are sounding less aggressive then previous model (cold-biting) and are very SMOOTH (i mean really putted together as cream) and "caramel" souding. Maybe its definition I didn't figure out yet. I think they are bass heavy enough to handle any 20m2 room if placed right. Muddy mid-range disappeared. It seems they had to burn-in right. But IMO they has their own color. To me color means distortion. They are more market oriented. People who started with pro audio would appreciate them.. tone is great, translation is great, mix errors/distortions are very audible, it is pro tool.
I am between C88 / PSI 17 / S2X
Can anyone review Unity Rock please in any comparison?
