During the January 2016 NAMM Show in Anaheim, Calif., IK Multimedia introduced iLoud Micro Monitor ($299.99, excluding taxes) as a small active studio reference monitoring system and the latest addition to IK's iLoud range of portable monitoring solutions. It comes with two bi-amplified speakers that promise an expansive stereo image, an accurate true linear frequency response, superior bass and plenty of power in a truly portable package.
Its two speakers are powered by four Class-D power amplifiers that push out a combined 50-watts RMS of power. Each speaker has a ¾-inch silk dome tweeter, a 3-inch paper cone performance woofer and a large flaring front-firing bass reflex port.
iLoud Micro Monitor has on-board 56-bit digital signal processing (DSP). This DSP handles the frequency and phase response of the monitor and also manages the dynamic range so that the drivers are always controlled. It also acts as a digital crossover. This DSP can be adjusted to suit different listening environments thanks to three EQ switches: One for treble, one for bass and a "Desktop" toggle that lets users optimize iLoud Micro Monitor for use in either a free field or desktop setup. iLoud Micro Monitor can also be physically positioned at two angles of inclination.
iLoud Micro Monitor can also be used with a variety of audio input options. It accepts both RCA and 1/8-inch wired connections and can also be paired for Bluetooth streaming with all Bluetooth audio streaming-enabled devices.
IK Multimedia states that iLoud Micro Monitor will be available early Q2 2016 from music and electronics retailers worldwide, and from the IK online store.
