MUSIKMESSE 2015: MunroSonic has unveiled another oval speaker setup in the shape of the Egg100 monitoring system.

Taking its lead from the Egg150, this is a smaller, more affordable setup with a 4-inch driver. Designed for use in near-field situations, this offers continuously adjustable frequency response and an angled bass port. There's also a 'variable tilt base' that allows adjustment of the upward angle of the listening axis, the theory being that this enables you to avoid interfering reflections from your mixing console or desk surface.

The Egg100 ships with a separate control unit and amplifier which features active analogue crossovers, LF and HF trim pot EQ for location setup, and a Class-A headphone amplifier.

You can find out more on the MunroSonic website, and you'll be able to buy the Egg100 monitoring system from May for £1560/$1999.

MunroSonic Egg100 monitoring system features

  • Unique monocoque shell construction (rigid and resonant neutral)
  • Near zero diffraction interference (smooth frequency response)
  • No internal standing waves (greatly reduced smearing)
  • Perfect bass port integration (superb transient response)
  • Free standing control unit and integrated amplification with 3m matched speaker cables
  • Volume Level control and LED headroom indicator
  • Class-A headphone amplifier
  • Custom-designed speaker holder for adjustable vertical alignment (allows for perfect sweet spot in both vertical and horizontal planes)
  • Precision trim pots for bass (LF) and High Frequency (HF) calibration
