Ocean Way Audio (OWA), a leading manufacturer of high-resolution reference monitors for the professional audio and audiophile market sectors, is now shipping three new near-field and mid-field monitors: the Pro2A, HR4 and the HR4S.

Following their debut at the AES 139th Convention in 2015, the HR4 and HR4S are now shipping to dealers and customers worldwide. Their design offers a 100×40-degree dispersion pattern, as well as a dual/hybrid waveguide system engineered using 3-D modeling and cast in a stone-like resin to provide an accurate sweet spot.

“There’s nothing that looks or sounds like these speakers; their sonic image is simply unmatched by any competitive monitor,” says Ocean Way Audio President Rick Plushner. “We offer the HR4 series in a two-way or three-way configuration—very big sounding speakers in a sleek, 25.5-inch-wide, console-friendly design. Starting at $6,000 a pair, these self-powered speakers are accessible to a wide range of professional applications. The Pro2A punches well beyond its weight class comparing to speaker systems costing thousands more. At $3,500 per pair, they are an amazing value. Hearing is believing.”

Company founder and CEO Allen Sides remarks, “When you are mixing, not hearing correctly is like shooting in the dark. When you bring in other musicians, artists and producers to hear what you have done, you want it to sound amazing, and with accurate monitors, you will know that when they play it in their cars or on other devices they will still be impressed. Ocean Way Monitors finally provide the complete confidence to make critical musical and sonic judgments. We are pleased that we have begun shipping these units to our dealers, who will distribute them to discerning users worldwide.”
