Equator Audio to Offer D5 Summer Special

San Diego, California, United States, August, 2012… Equator Audio Research recognized globally as a leading manufacturer of highly accurate studio reference monitors for mission critical recording applications has launched a summer special consisting of the D5 monitors, the D5 monitors carrying case, the D5 monitor vibration resistant pads and the min jack to two RCA with ¼” adaptor cable for quick connection to a computer, ipod, ipad or phone. The package would normally sell for over $365 but this summer special packages the items for $329.99 + freight.

Direct D5 sales have been on an extended upward trajectory and continue to make their way into acclaimed hands for mission critical work. Many purchases are carrying the monitors to remote locations. The carrying case simplifies the transport (normally a $39.99 value). Some are using the D5s to monitor their ipod or for pleasure listening. The included cable makes connections very easy (normally a $5.99 value). The included foam pads use a vibration resistant technology that reduces the amount of sympathetic vibrations that might occur when your D5s couple with your desktop (normally a $19.99 value).

Sympathetic vibrations: ‘a vibration produced in one body by the vibrations of exactly the same period in a neighboring body.’ Simply put: emanating low frequencies can cause an unintended rattle. This problem can be exasperated when the vibrating speaker cabinet is touching a surface, thereby transferring vibrations, causing a foreign object to vibrate. That additional vibration can cause distortion. That distortion can easily affect your audio in a negative way.

One fix is to place your monitor on a vibration resistant pad.

The new D5 (Direct 5) studio monitors are geared for the recording professional in need of a small (9.75″ x 7″ x 8.5″), affordable, accurate, well-voiced, reference studio monitor solution. It features a coaxially designed 5.25” woofer and center mounted 1” silk tweeter in an all wood cabinet. The newly designed digital amplifier boasts extremely low distortion specs and delivers 2 x 50w RMS. SPL is rated at 103 dB combined @ 1m. Frequency response is 53Hz–20 kHz.

To achieve extensive mid-range detail the D5 shares much of the acclaimed Equator Q Series technology. Like all Equator 2-way active monitoring systems, the D5 employs a Zero-Point Reference™ coaxial design with internal DSP handling numerous tasks, including matching the Digitally-Controlled Transducer’s™ output and the ability to apply pin-point accurate voicing.

The D5 Summer Special is available directly from the Equator online store.
