Kali Audio, a startup audio company we've been keeping our eyes on this year, has announced its debut product line, Project Lone Pine Studio Monitors.

The debut line is comprised of the LP-6 6.5-Inch Studio Monitor and the LP-8 8-Inch Studio Monitor. The monitors feature advanced waveguides, largest in-class magnets and voice coils, and a unique front-firing, low noise port tube. They are easy to use in any setup, featuring an array of boundary compensation EQ settings, XLR, TRS, and RCA inputs, and Class D power amps.

“Project Lone Pine Studio Monitors are the most advanced speakers in their class," Charles Sprinkle, Kali's Director of Acoustics, says. "They are exceptionally accurate, and the large drivers that we’re using deliver incredible punch and clarity all the way down to the bottom of the frequency response.”

This past May, we had a chance to preview the monitors at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami. "They are potentially the best value monitors in the market," Dave Edwards, one of our resident reviewers at DJBooth, says.

Producer Warren Huart adds: “I really enjoyed these speakers because they do the two things that I’m always preaching: they sound really good, and they’re very affordable, so congratulations Kali for doing that.”

The LP-6 will be available in the US September 1, with the LP-8 following shortly thereafter.
