In this video, Sonicstate presents IK's new iLoud Precision 6 studio monitors. Editor Nick gives some background on the iLoud range of speakers and discusses how the features and best-in-class specs of the Precision line compete with and even surpass professional studio monitors costing much more.
The first thing was the stereo imaging was astonishing. I could almost pinpoint to the centimeter where things were in the stereo image. Also big, wide shimmery reverbs and stuff just sounded absolutely massive.
The low end is also really impressive. I was again very surprised at how much bass extension there was. They do sound a lot bigger than they are. They sound like you might have a sub and it's very smooth.
The stereo imaging and detail across the entire range was eye-opening. The last time I had this experience was a recent mix session using ATC SCM20A monitors costing 2.5x the price.
"I have a pair of Focal Alpha 80s which are 8-inch drivers and I know them quite well. I plugged these in and put them in the space uncalibrated and it was literally night and day. I was quite blown away.
"If you can get something that sounds even and beautiful on speakers like these, then the chances are it's going to translate well.
This may well be the key to unlocking mixes and things that you've never been able to figure out. It's really interesting when you listen to a speaker that reveals so much. It allows you to see and visualize what's going on and that's critical.
