REFTONE Passive Near-field Reference Monitors – Give yourself another perspective and reveal what you are missing
By Front End Audio on Nov 9th 2017
REFTONE are passive near-field reference monitors that allow you to hear full range clearly at low volumes, for accuracy and placement. The new Reftone 2LD Reference Monitors will deliver true single-driver perspective with a low-frequency fullness with clarity never before available in a reference monitor of this type.
The purpose of a small single driver studio monitor such as the Reftone 2LD is that with many active monitors with separate tweeters, woofers, and even mid-range drivers, the increased separation and multiple crossover points makes it difficult to hear where certain instruments may be stepping on each other. Many playback systems where your mixes might see playback are not as ideal as hi-resolution studio monitors. Therefore, there are far more opportunities out there in the wild for the fruits of your labor to suddenly show off a wart (or three) that you didn't know was there. This is where the Reftones become an invaluable resource for your mixes. They are designed not to be a crappy sounding speaker - but rather to be a high-performance replacement for single-driver monitors of this type which were born out of older, more experience-limited ways of thinking. Based on classic monitoring techniques like low-level and mono listening, Reftones were designed for today’s music. To handle the abundance of bass and artificial sounds in today’s music, they reproduce a clear, midrange sound without losing low-end presence. Hearing what’s really in the mix helps engineers, producers, musicians and editors make better decisions.
