5aint Hears Sceptre S8 for the First Time, Gets Mind 3lown

October 18,2013

This video was recently uploaded to YouTube by 5aint, A-list producer for The Spice Girls, Pet Shop boys, and many, many others. He recorded this video with his cell phone to document his reaction to hearing the new Sceptre S8 monitors as compared to the Event 2030s and a pair of Yamaha NS-10s.

While the audio quality here is clearly a product of his cell phone’s mic, audio quality is not what this video is about. Well, it is about audio quality… but you get my drift. The standout here is 5aint’s reaction upon hearing the Sceptres, which starts at around the 8:16 mark. The video below is embedded to begin at that point, but feel free to skip back a bit if you want to see his thoughts on the other speakers.

Suffice it to say; the man’s got ears, and they like what they hears. The golden moment includes notable sub-moments like:

  • “Let’s try the PreSonus. Wait, that can’t be right. No, it is!”
  • “What has David done to this design?”
  • “It sounds like there’s a sub on there!”
  • “Sorry, guys, game over, that’s a different world. Feels like it’s kicking you.”

This is the sort of historical document that simply can’t be scripted. It’s like baby’s first steps, V-J Day in Times Square, and the squirrel photobomb all rolled into one.

Thanks, 5aint!
