SW1X Audio Design™ MTR 963

SW1X Audio Design writes: “Are you looking for musical, articulate and most coherent loudspeakers to match a relatively Low Powered Valve Amplifier? If the answer is yes then you found the solution. The main design goal was to create musically uncompromised, super coherent sounding speakers to match Low Powered, Single ended, Class A, Tube Amplifiers.

The Near- Medium Field monitors were designed to be timelessly elegant made of great sounding, zero-expense-spared materials & to fullfil following criteria:

  • X-over-less and therefore without any Passive Components in order to maximize
