Amphion One18
Amphion One18

It takes some time to get used to the unhyped sound of Amphion's One18, but once you adapt to their language,
you get rewarded with a very clean, fast speaker with a deep sound and a very strong centre-image,
which reveals subtle nuances in a mix in a very relaxed manner.

Tyler Acoustics D1x Monitors

The D1x's are fantastic full range monitors that are well suited to mastering, presenting one of the most accurate and revealing listening experiences I've ever heard. They perform well above their price bracket with excellent imaging and reproduction, but do require proper positioning to work best.

Plenty of I/O, good MIDI latency time, 90% of the time works all the time. Drivers can be a tad buggy at times, but its not too bad. Decent slightly above average quality preamps especially for the price. A few drawbacks but nothing too major. All in all, if it works with your computer, its great!

These are isolators to place your speakers on. I have the Trident monitors. The stereo imaging and frequency response with these isolating stands is far superior than not using them. I was quite impressed. I was able to configure the stands to tilt the speakers to perfect ear level. Highly recommend
