Overview

The Sterling MX8 bi-amped studio monitor represents the latest evolution in Sterling Audio design, combining top sound quality with next-generation materials that deliver top-class audio quality and features. With dual-axis WaveGuidanceVH™ technology each bi-amped monitor is built for optimal wider-and-higher frequency dispersion, giving you clear, articulate sound even when listening off-axis.

The MX8’s proprietary multi-fiber 8” low-frequency driver cone delivers superior damping to minimize sonic artifacts and unnatural resonance and its 4-layer voice coil provides greater motor force for outstanding low-frequency performance. The MX8’s rear-port design reduces low-frequency turbulence and distortion, greater improving the overall low-end delivery. Its 1” silk dome tweeter powered by neodymium magnets also give the MX8 monitors a smooth and natural frequency response.

Powered by 125 Watts of high-efficiency, low-distortion Class A/B amplification, MX Series monitors deliver best-in-class efficiency and ultra-low distortion and the monitors also include High and low filters to custom tune monitors to your listening preference and environment. With an elegantly polished ebony finish and blue, backlit Sterling logo, these MX monitors look as good as they sound in any studio environment.

Awesome

By Chance

from Kansas city

Comments about Sterling Audio MX8 8" Powered Studio Monitor:

I've owned maudio bx8a's for a few years now and love them.... Until today when I spent a couple of hours with these monitors. These sound amazing! I was very skeptical because this brand is usually considered an entry level brand, but was absolutely blown away by the sound they make. They seem very balanced from top to bottom and have more punch than I expected. I love them.

Comments about Sterling Audio MX8 8" Powered Studio Monitor:

Sterling has had a reputation of having entry level speakers, so I have avoided them. But played these by accident while demoing another pair. Bass filled the entire demo room with balanced bass, which was unexpected. When the volume is up, the speakers keep their sound shape and don't become irritating. I don't use any studio monitors with woofers under 8", as they are inaccurate and sound like speakers in a cardboard box. Though the MX5's are pretty good, they are not good enough for our studio work.
Case in point: We did a soundtrack for a documentary featuring underwater scenes and needed a full and deep bass (25hz to 40hz) to accompany shark activity. These monitors exposed a transient flutter in that low end that no other speakers caught. When we tested our first 3 mixes in a car, home stereo and mp3 player, results were consistent across the board.

    These monitors have an amazingly perfect sound. I compared these to the JBL and the YAMAHA monitors and these sounded the best. Even better than the KRK
