True linear phase response for unmatched clarity and translation

iLoud Precision leverages its advanced 96 kHz internal DSP system, digital crossover and custom-designed audiophile amplifiers to deliver true linear phase response above 150 Hz (and the very minimum possible phase rotation at low frequencies) for precise stereo imaging, sharp transients, incredibly solid bass and breathtaking detail. The result is a stunningly clear, transparent and revealing sound quality that’s absolutely true to life.

Perfect time alignment that eliminates ear fatigue

iLoud Precision also sets a new standard for time coherence, or the precise timing alignment between all regions of the audio spectrum. Achieving nearly theoretical ideal performance, iLoud Precision offers the highest level of time accuracy, without sacrificing frequency response. Precise time alignment offers incredibly transient response and frequency balance and eliminates the ear fatigue that can develop over longer listening sessions on other monitors. Plus this improves the “readability” of the program and therefore translation.

Built-in acoustic calibration to hear your music and not your room

With iLoud Precision there’s less hassle about treating your room. Each speaker features built-in calibration based on the acclaimed ARC™ System technology. Just connect the included MEMS measurement microphone and in a few seconds, the iLoud Precisions will tune themselves to any environment from your mixing room to living room.

Powerful software control - Extended calibration and custom voicing

The iLoud Precision series introduces X-MONITOR, a specifically developed advanced control application for Mac and Windows. It assists with ARC calibration and enables extended acoustic and voicing selection and adjustments to fine-tune iLoud Precision to your taste, plus convenient remote access to the settings on the Precision’s back panel. The software is plug-n-play via a simple USB connection with no special setup needed.

Iconic studio monitors and popular speaker emulations

Even more exciting, X-MONITOR emulates the frequency and phase response of the most famous studio monitors on the market, as well as popular hi-fi speakers and mobile devices, for a breathtakingly true-to-life experience. Over 20 studio monitor profiles are included, and more will be released in the future, saving you money and space. A single pair of iLoud Precisions with X-MONITOR lets you test a mix on different reference systems quickly, without ever leaving the sweet spot or needing any other speakers.
