Setup & First Impressions

Sterling Audio, an audio company that is presenting three new studio reference monitors; the MX8, the MX5 and the MX3. They all pack a new technology that is Sterling proprietary, dual-axis WaveGuidanceVH. What this technology does is give the monitors a nice “sweet spot” with wide and high dispersion, as they put it. This helps with listening when off-axis both horizontally and vertically. The material that is used to put these monitors together promises to give a very clear and true sound without diminishing the accuracy that you expect from a studio monitor. The MX8 will comes at a retail of 249.99, the MX5 at 149.99 and the MX3 at 99.99.

Check out the full review video above for a detailed look at these new monitors and scroll down for the review summary to see the pro's and con's of the MX8 setup.
