The SC204 are the smallest speakers in our studio monitors line. And they were built with quality in mind.
If you are working at home, or in a music or post-production studio, a small pair of monitors should not compromise the quality of your results.
It should serve as a second pair of ears.
The SC204 may have a small footprint. But don't let their size deceive you, these monitors sound bigger than many monitors twice their size!
The SC204 also have the convenience of threaded screw inserts on the bottom and the back.
That way, you can mount your SC204 on a regular microphone or speaker stand, or use the back plate for different wall mounting options available on the market.
Obsessing with linear frequency responses and other technical details, or in fact just wanting to please your ears, is not the right recipe for a good studio monitor.
What is usually needed is a good balance. A balance between the work you're listening and a realistic sense of what your final output will be.
Exceptional sound reproduction is of course fundamental in good monitoring speakers.
But it's equally important that your work is properly translated in a way that your music sounds consistent in other speakers or rooms.
Which is why we didn't just focus in results from measurement systems.
We also did a lot critical listening sessions in recording studios, with professional users and other groups of listeners.
It is the combination of all this information - technical and subjective - that we take into account in our R&D process. EVE Audio speakers excel in every aspect.
Just don't expect some sterile pseudo-linear way of listening to your mixes.
Music is one of the most exciting - and complex - art forms in the world, and it should be treated as such. If you like what you hear, you will be excited, and that will motivate you to do a more creative job.
Listen to EVE Audio for yourself. And let your ears decide.
EVE Audio's materials are sourced from the finest suppliers and the best workmanship available.
As a product of German engineering at its best, we take pride and stand behind the quality of any of our products.
All quality control is individually hand performed in our Berlin factory before shipping.
So you can rest assured that you're buying a top of the line end produt.
Our glass fibre coated SilverCone woofers with stiff honeycomb structure matched with our Air Motion Tweeters make for a unique speaker with the best possible sound reproduction.
And coupled with high-end DSP electronics, you will have precise controls over volume settings, filter selections, speaker symmetries, phase tweakings, and all this with a simple push knob on your front panel.
No more fiddling with screw drivers in inaccessible places under low light conditions.
Welcome to the 21st century.
For us, design is not something that happens by accident: it is one of the core values of our company.
That is reflected in all of our products.
The silver insertions on the front of the cabinet are not only there because they're beautiful, but also help decouple the micro controller from the audio section and place the user interface in front.
Our engineers have also managed to design the most efficient bass ports in the market, conveniently positioned in the back, that will provide you with an excellent and tight bass response, but without the bass port distortion that other speakers are famous for.
To complete the setup, all EVE Audio speakers come with balanced and unbalanced connections, using XLR and RCA plugs, respectively. All in all, Eve Audio speakers represent the best that money can buy, but still within a very acceptable price range.
And if you think you've heard every monitor speaker in the world, pop up to your nearest reseller and listen to EVE Audio personally.
You might be surprised.
In most high-end products, it's usually in the details that you will find the most convincing innovations.
We believe that is the case with The Grid.
The Grid is a small, hexagonal, removable iron moulded grill that protects your tweeter from any mishaps.
And it's easy to use. You do not need any tools to assemble or remove The Grid, because it latches on magnetically to your tweeter.
And due to its shape - which is repeated in the hexagonal pattern of our woofer's design - The Grid snaps into place like magic.
Always with perfect alignment. Whether you choose to use The Grid or not, it will not influence the reproduction of your high frequencies adversely.
Every EVE Audio speaker is supplied with The Grid.
The Grid. Simplicity is the name of the game.
With every EVE Audio speaker, you get precision high resolution DSP electronics that will help you tailor your monitors to the way you work.
And if the acronym DSP scares you when you think about monitor speakers, you will be safe with EVE.
Our DSP electronics are not designed to be intrusive or present you with lots of confusing options.
It's important for us that you have an analogue "feeling" when using the EVE monitors. No setup, no booting, no weekly software update necessary.
With EVE, you will have precise control over several filter sections, accurate volume control and phase settings.
And all of this can be accomplished directly from the speaker front panel using a unique high precision knob.
How's that for ease of use? Just one push knob operation. There is no need to connect your speakers to your computer and waste time operating dodgy control panels.
The DSP is supported with a high quality A/D converter from Burr-Brown which delivers a pristine signal to the DSP section.
And as the PWM-amplifiers are directly connected to the DSP section, no additional conversion is necessary.
This guarantees an extreme reliability.
For us at EVE it was important to offer easy DSP adjustment and handling without the use of any additional tools.
An LED ring clearly indicates the corresponding status of adjustment – which can be dimmed, of course.
All settings for volume or room adaption can be blocked with a DIP switch on the rear of the monitor to avoid misuse, operating errors or random changes of settings.
This simple, intelligent and clean design will guarantee that your EVE monitors will work with you. Not against you.
EVE Audio. Set them up and start making music.
the Bass Ports
When it comes to efficient and clean design, EVE is at the forefront.
We took out everything that wasn't needed. And if there is one thing that you don't need to look at constantly in a speaker, that's a big hole on the front!
To put it simply, a bass port - also known as a vented box or reflex port - uses the sound from the back of the diaphragm as a way to increase efficiency at lower frequencies.
With proper adjustment of the right parameters (enclosure volume, tube cross-section and length, etc.) you can substantially improve the performance of your speakers.
However, there is also a down side effect of port compression. As you turn up the volume, the efficiency of the port reduces and distortion will increase.
With EVE, we opted for a tuned, larger than normal, rear rectangular port with no hard edges for our bass port design.
That's one of the reasons EVE monitors have an efficiency on the lower frequencies way better than many speaker designs.
The result is high sound pressures with tight and punchy bass frequencies that don't cause port distortion.
Crank up the volume, and EVE will deliver a round bass and with no ugly windy holes to look at every time you glance at your speakers.
EVE Audio. Finally, speakers that sound as good as they look.
Manual Features Tech Talk
The SC204 uses a 4" SilverCone woofer with honeycomb structured diaphragm, driven by a sophisticated magnet system with a 1" voice coil responsible for creating a greater linear excursion.
This produces a bigger dynamic than one would assume in a monitor of such small proportions.
As a result, in addition to the unsurpassed audio transparency of our proprietary AMT tweeter and PWM amplifier combination, this SC204 will surprise you with a very powerful, tight and precise low end.
Our AMT tweeter is our own proprietary technology that follows the rule of no off-the-shelf components in order to achieve superior results.
The preciseness and detail of the high frequency range of EVE monitors, coupled with the general tightness of the bass and mid-range, make the SC204 a superb speaker that is easily used on the road (due to its reduced size) or as a second pair of speakers for your main setup.
With every EVE Audio speaker, you also get high resolution DSP electronics.
One push knob operation and you will have access to accurate volume control and several different filter settings that will help you tailor your monitors to the way you work.
And if you always avoid digital processing, we've got you covered.
The DSP engine is supported with a high quality A/D converter from Burr-Brown, which delivers a pristine signal to the DSP section.
And since the PWM amplifiers are directly connected to the DSP, no additional conversion is necessary.
Bass Port Design
It's all in the geometry. One of the downside effects of port compression is bass distortion.
As you turn up the volume, the efficiency of the port reduces and distortion will increase.
We opted for a large rear rectangular port with no hard edges for our bass port designs.
That's one of the reasons EVE monitors have a high efficiency on the lower frequencies.
The results? High sound pressures with tight and punchy bass frequencies that don't cause port distortion.
Crank up the volume, and EVE will deliver a round bass.
With no holes to look at every time you glance at your speakers.
