Munro Sonic Egg 150 Professional Audio Monitoring System
Munro Sonic, named after the collaboration between Andy Munro of Munro Acoustics and Sonic Distribution's James Young and Phil Smith, combines revolutionary speaker designs with UK manufacturing to produce exceptionally high-quality and incredible sounding monitors.
The Munro Sonic Egg 150 monitoring system is now manufactured in the UK. The Egg 150 is an active speaker system combining a custom designed amplifier with two passive speakers each housed in unique egg-shaped chassis.
When Andy Munro and Sonic Distribution first collaborated on the Egg system, it received critical acclaim for its revolutionary design. It’s no surprise, then, that when looking at ways to improve and refine what many consider to be one of the best monitoring systems ever produced, the search for the cream of global manufacturing would end up back where the story began – in the UK.
We are proud to say that the newly tweaked and refined system features the same base form and function, but with a new amp PCB design, improved and exceptionally crafted chassis metal-work and a redefined mid EQ section based on development input from some of the world’s top producers and engineers already using the original system.
The new Munro Sonic Egg150 Monitoring System is a showcase product for UK Manufacturing and the UK music industry, on a global stage. Features The Egg is a fully ‘Active Integrated Monitoring System’ that incorporates a fundamental rethink of the loudspeaker engineering process. The traditional wooden box has been replaced by a scientifically proven, curved enclosure that virtually eliminates diffraction and resonant effects that distort and smear the original sound. The result is a stunning clarity that brings the smallest details into focus and yet delivers the entire mix as a coherent whole.
The system is complete, with a free standing control unit that delivers a perfect bi-amplified power match to the egg drive units, source select inputs, active analogue crossovers, LF and HF trim pot equalisation for room and location set-up compensation and a re-defined mid-band control to emulate the mid-range response of both Hi-Fi and NS10 type speakers.
Above all, the Egg is designed to deliver the highest quality sound with the absolute minimum of coloration. In one word - Truth.
The combination of near zero diffraction and internal resonance, combined with a custom built Amp, delivers breath-taking transparency that within seconds of listening reveals a much more defined and open mix, in which the whole balance simply ‘feels’ more complete. Of course certain aspects of some recordings may be shown up to be distorted or not as the engineer intended, but that is the truth, unobscured by coloration. A monitor that flatters to deceive has no place in a professional recording studio and there is no argument for using poor quality speakers to match inferior playback media.
Well recorded material, translates to any medium, but the opposite is absolutely not true… if your monitors put a fake ‘sheen’ on everything, how will you ever know what your material sounds like on an honest system..? You may be embarrassed!
There is a very good argument for a fully analogue monitor. The bandwidth and dynamics of a true analogue system will show up the character of the digital system preceding it. It also removes issues with bit rate conversion and other compatibility matters.
By using high quality linear power supplies we can maintain maximum transient power up to double the rated value. Bi-amplification further enhances the power headroom and results in the lowest possible distortion values. By using 35V power rails the Egg is capable of high transient sound levels from a relatively modest amplifier compliment.
• Unique monocoque shell construction (rigid and resonant neutral)
• Near zero diffraction interference (smooth frequency response)
• No internal standing waves (greatly reduced smearing)
• Perfect bass port integration (superb transient response)
