After branching out into studio furniture, sample library makers Output have launched professional studio monitors. The Output Frontier Studio Monitors come in a sleek, modern design with the fidelity of pro audio powerhouse Barefoot Sound. They are built from the ground up to be the highest quality speaker at this price range.
These nearfield monitors feature 6.5” time-aligned, concentric drivers and hand-crafted wood bases and are priced at $699 each, which is quite remarkable. They can offer the best sounding, best looking home studio monitor in its class (Output’s claim) at this price, because they are shipped direct with no middlemen. Still unsure? Try them out for 30 days, and if you aren’t in love, you can return the Output Frontier Studio Monitors to them at their cost.
Frontier features bespoke 6.5″/1.25″ coaxial aluminum alloy drivers designed and tuned by Thomas Barefoot for a flat anechoic response and low distortion. The forward facing tuned port gives you an accurate representation of the bass in your mix.
- Barefoot’s pioneering audio technology
- 6.5 inch time-aligned coaxial drivers
- 200 watt combined bi-amplified architecture
Aside from the specs I love the look of them. The solid walnut base isolates the speakers and makes each one unique, while the bifurcated soft white LED light provides a pleasant visual accent. I will definitely set some money aside for them – it seems like these are the monitors my studio has been waiting for.
