Sterling Audio Introduces MX Series Powered Studio Monitors

There's a new range of audio monitors available for your studio. Sterling Audio's MX series are powered and feature ultra low distortion. They come in three flavors; MX8, MX5 and MX3.  

Thousand Oaks, CA - March 2016... Sterling Audio announces its new MX Series powered studio reference monitors, combining next-generation materials and Sterling's proprietary dual-axis WaveGuidanceVH™ technology to deliver high efficiency and ultra-low distortion, even when mixing audio with challenging content. The series includes three models: the MX8, which features an 8-inch low-frequency driver and 1-inch silk-dome tweeter; the MX5, with a 5-inch woofer and 1-inch silk-dome tweeter; and the MX3, with a 3-inch woofer and ¾-inch tweeter.

Sterling's advanced, dual-axis WaveGuidanceVH technology gives MX monitors a very wide "sweet spot," with extraordinarily wide and high dispersion. This provides a clear, articulate, and centered sound, even when listening off-axis both horizontally and vertically.

The MX Series' low-frequency drivers employ a proprietary, multi-fiber cone design with superior damping, which minimizes sonic artifacts and unnatural resonances. A custom, four-layer voice coil delivers greater motor force for outstanding low-frequency performance. The silk-dome tweeter, powered by a neodymium magnet, provides smooth and natural high-frequency response. Each MX Series monitor sports a rear-panel acoustic port, which reduces low-frequency turbulence and distortion.

All three models feature variable highpass (+2, 0, or -2 dB) and lowpass (-3, 0, or +3 dB) filters that enable you to custom tune your MX monitors to suit your listening preferences and recording environment. The MX8 and MX5 provide balanced XLR, balanced ¼-inch TRS, and unbalanced RCA inputs; the MX3 offers unbalanced RCA inputs.

MX Series monitors pack plenty of natural bass punch and superior transient response, thanks to powerful Class A/B power amps. The top-of-the-line MX8's 125W power amp and 8-inch woofer enable it to deliver big, tight, accurate low end. The MX5 is more compact, making it an excellent choice where space is at a premium; it is driven by an impressive 80 watts of Class A/B power. The highly portable MX3s feature a 20W power amp, more than enough to deliver plenty of clean, clear sound wherever you travel. MX3s are sold as a pair, while MX5 and MX8 monitors are sold individually.

All MX Series monitors feature studio grade internal components and protective circuitry. Finally, a polished ebony finish and backlit Sterling logo make MX monitors look as good as they sound.

The MX8s will have a street price of $249.99; MX5s will be $149.99 and the compact MX3s will be 99.99 for a pair. They are available now at Guitar Center and Musician's Friend.
