Nowsonic - RadioCheck

The Nowsonic Radio Check Active Studio Monitor is an active reference monitor, featuring a 5.52" speaker, with a 90Hz to 17kHz freqency response, 8 Ohm impedance, a shielded chassis, and 18mm MDF with acoustic interior insulation. In recording studios nowadays mainly efficient 2- or 3-way systems come to evaluate a mixture at high listening levels for use. In the age of high-definition audio, it is equally important to listen to the proprietary blend from compact systems without the extended bass foundation of a refillable system. Eventually, the information is even much more valuable as a mixture from the speakers of a TV, kitchen radio, in the car or on the docking station of an iPod sounds. In any case, every sound engineer should take the opportunity and assess its mixture without the disturbing influence of a crossover or the transmission behavior of an inferior full range speaker.

Specifically, the center area with the fundamental harmonic proportions of vocals, guitars and keyboards is particularly sensitive and can only be on a high-quality full-range speakers without crossover network are evaluated correctly. Accordingly, our development department has invested more than 12 months of intensive research and comparisions with specific adaptation in the voicing of Nowsonic radio check. The result is a very pleasant sounding and technically current full-range version of the 5C Sound Cubes that enjoyed at sound engineers in the 1980s and 90s great popularity. Listening tests have shown that the Nowsonic Radio Check Although the basic character of this legendary speaker are very close, but provide a much more pleasant mid-range and more accurate and more transparent playing in the heights as well as a broader bass output.

The housing is made of massive and highly stable MDF boards and  offers an extremely low self-resonance. All cabinet edges and corners are rounded. The elegant design is emphasised by the "cream-coloured" high gloss polyurethane varnish finish. On the housing bottom, a 7 mm thick pad made of neoprene has been integrated, which serves as non-skid acoustical insulation. In favour of flexible mounting the radio check has an integrated screw thread (5/8 "-27) for mounting on conventional tripod screws.
