The Shape 40 integrates five innovations, each contributing to maximizing acoustic transparency. These innovations make the Shape monitors stand out as work tools designed specifically for nearfield monitoring.
The innovations incorporated into the Shape 40 are geared towards providing remarkable acoustic transparency. These monitors create a wide and extremely precise stereo image, essential for critical listening. The bass register is articulate and controlled, ensuring a well-defined low-end response. The lower mid-range and mid-range exhibit extreme neutrality, without any masking effects, simplifying equalization tasks in these crucial frequency ranges.
At the heart of the Shape 40's performance is the new tweeter, delivering high-definition sound reproduction. This tweeter efficiently reveals any hissing and offers precision in the very high end of the frequency spectrum. The result is a clear and detailed audio representation that meets the demands of discerning professionals.
