Sonic Sense Pro Audio First Look at the Sceptre S8 CoActual Monitors

August 8,2013

Sonic Sense Pro Audio just posted this first-look (first-listen?) video of the Sceptre S8 CoActual monitors. They compared the Sceptre S8 ($749, each) to the much more expensive Genelec 8050A ($2195, each) and the Adam A7x ($699, each) monitors. All monitors involved in the shootout were cautiously miked and measured, and detailed frequency response and phase charts are presented for each.

Sonic Sense is very thorough, which I suppose makes for the “Sense” part of “Sonic Sense.”

Click through to the Sonic Sense blog post here to get their full review, but in the meantime here’s a snippet:
“As promised, the sound quality truly does stand up well beside high-end monitors that have become “household” names in the studio world including ADAM, Genelec, JBL, and Neumann.”
