IK Multimedia Introduces iLoud Micro Monitors

Get high-end sound without the high-end price
We are pleased to announce that iLoud Micro Monitor, the ultra-compact best sounding monitors for small studios, is now shipping and available from select IK resellers worldwide and the IK online store for only $/€299.99 per pair.

iLoud Micro Monitor delivers amazingly detailed, clear and accurate audio in a compact, efficient and portable enclosure. They are able to do this because of the combination of DSP-controlled frequency response, ultra-accurate and time aligned crossover and smart design – the drivers are powered by four ultra-efficient class D power amplifiers that push out a combined 50W RMS of power. Each individual speaker has a 3/4” silk dome tweeter, a 3” custom composite material performance woofer and a large flaring front-firing bass reflex port. iLoud Micro Monitor is characterized by having pleasing high frequencies, an exceptionally “open” detailed midrange and a solid, controlled low end.

Total DSP control
iLoud Micro Monitor provides a flat and linear speaker response in any listening environment thanks to its onboard 56-bit digital signal processor (DSP). The DSP handles the frequency and phase response of the monitors and also manages the dynamic range so that the drivers are always under control. The DSP acts as a digital crossover allowing for invisibly smooth transitions between the drivers and can be adjusted to suit different listening environments thanks to the three EQ switches: one for treble, one for bass and a Desktop toggle that optimizes its use in a free field or desktop setup.

The “Super-nearfield” monitoring system
iLoud Micro Monitor is designed so that the sweet spot is at the ideal location when creating, producing, mixing or listening to music. And since the sweet spot is closer to the speakers, you’re able to monitor the audio without the unwanted effect of room reflections that can color the sound, giving you the most accurate sound in a small space.

The bottom line
iLoud Micro Monitor gives you stunningly accurate and detailed sound for mixing in any space – from cramped bedrooms to large studios – without the compromises in sonic quality normally associated with other small and budget monitors. Plus iLoud Micro Monitor accepts both RCA (cable included) and 1/8” wired connections and can also be paired for Bluetooth streaming. Simply put, iLoud Micro Monitor gives you high-end sound without the high-end price.

Pricing and availability
iLoud Micro Monitor is now available and shipping from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and from the IK Online Store for only $/€299.99 per pair (excluding taxes). Plus as a bonus, when you register your iLoud Micro Monitor by November 30, 2016, you’ll receive a T-RackS individual processor of your choice — that’s a value up to $/€149.99 for Free!

About the author

Tim Hemingway

I want to be a rockstar when I grow up, at least that is what I have been putting down as my career goal ever since I was first introduced to the Beatles at 11 or 12 years old. Shortly after my introduction to the Fab Four, I picked up an old classical guitar and started learning every Beatles song I could. It was right around that time that the nickname "GuitarGuy" Tim originated. While I don't remember the exact origin, it was basically how kids at school differentiated me from the other 4 or 5 Tims in our class. Starting in Jr. High, with an arsenal of Weezer and Green Day covers, my friends and I began "performing". Over the next 10 years I played guitar or bass in various alternative, punk and acoustic bands. Somewhere mid-way through college I realized that although I had the desire to be a rockstar, maybe I didn't have the songwriting abilities, so I moved my passion for music behind the console. I then spent several years working in a studio by day, and at night running everything from local concerts to community musicals. Without all of the boring details, my studio work eventually led me into advertising and marketing which is what I now do during the day. But when I come home at night, I still pull out my guitar and put on concerts for my kiddos (I’m raising up the next generation of Guitar Gods). I met up with the Rev while I was in grad school and was working on my thesis: Turn it up to Eleven: A Study of Guitar Hero and Rockband gamers. Why they play and how marketers can use this information. Yes, it is true. I have several academic publications about Guitar Hero. At that time in my life I had decided to pursue a career in marketing within the music industry, but the Rev had a better idea. He gave me a shot at reviewing gear, and ever since then I have been a regular here as part of the Live2playNetwork dysfunctional-family. When it comes to music, I'm a jack of all trades. While I'm not an expert at anything, in a pinch I can play guitar, bass, drums, sing, or I can mic up the drum kit, edit in Pro Tools, or solder up a new patch cable.
