Opal Active Studio Monitor (Single) description:

The Event Opal Active Studio Monitor - SINGLE is a cost-effective, mid-sized, two-way speaker capable of delivering the great dynamics and mid-range clarity.

The Event Opal Monitor has been designed from the ground up, featuring entirely bespoke components. The cabinet, which features a convenient lifting handle, is made from cast and machined aluminium with nicely radiused edges and corners to minimise diffraction, and has a pair of vertical slot ports on the front baffle.

The Event Opal delivers 750 watts from two all-discrete class AB amps, located on the rear of the speaker. Front-panel controls (hidden behind a flap) can be used to fine tune the tonal balance of the speaker, with some specifically for use when Event Opal is mounted horizontally.

The Event Opal has a 25-pin D-sub connector and threaded mounting points, designed to accept external interface modules to expand the versatility of the system. The first of these to be offered is an AES3 input module. Furthermore, as standard, the new monitor comes with bespoke room-mode analysis software and a dedicated measurement mic to help optimise the system in every control room.

Review:
The EVENT Opal maybe an excellent studio monitor but is also a fantastic hi fi speaker as you can hear music as it was produced. Clear, detailed and un-flattered presentation. Decently produced CDs sound sublime. Surpasses the Meridian, Naim, Cyrus and PMC equipment I own or have owned. Unlike most hi fi the monitors are configurable for room acoustics and an Ipad app with a calibrated microphone has worked very well for me. A big bonus is there is no need to match the speakers to a power amp or worries about cable as with hi fi speakers.
