Grammy® winning mix engineer, Tom Lord-Alge on iLoud Micro Monitor
"At first, I thought that these would mostly be good monitors for when I travel, but after spending time with them at SPANK STUDIOS, I realized that these little power-houses are AWESOME for working in the studio as well. I love using them on the road and on my boat, but most importantly, in the control room where they compliment my existing monitors and offer me a 'real world' & modern monitoring option for mixing.”

Eddie Kramer, legendary, award-winning producer/engineer on iLoud Micro Monitor
“We plugged them in, listened to the sound of the iLoud Micro Monitors and we were all very impressed with them (it was myself and three other engineers, it was quite a team in there). The bottom-end was fairly representative of the loudspeakers in the control room. I haven’t heard small, loudspeakers sound quite that good in a long time. Fantastic! One of the other engineers came into the room and immediately wanted his own pair."

"I must say I am super impressed with the low-end on these tiny speakers and with their sound in general.

I am looking forward to continue comparing my mixes on them.”
