    I'm using my own brand of monitoring system the NUFEELD COREGO f1!
    It's a rather unique approach based on one single loudspeaker and a pure mid/side thinking (The patented Embracing Sound Theatre HD technology) for audio reproduction ensuring the purest possible time domain and phase accuracy. By this approach we're also avoiding comb filter artifacts always present in conventional two (or more) loudspeaker systems.

    How I like them....We'll I would not have started building these systems if I was not convinced this is the best thing to come along since (Room for analogy of your choice....sliced bread is usually popular

    Welcome to listen to a couple of mixes I've made and mastered with the COREGO f1 system.

    These examples of course says more about my mixing abilities/disabilities than the system itself.

    One of our biggest selling arguments for the system is the "No surprises in the car" factor. All Engineers that have tried the system whole heartedly agrees with that. Mixes land quicker, easier and you realise you need less compression and EQ because in a lot of cases we're compensating for acoustic phenomenon of using two loudspeakers...not necessarily fixing problems with the recorded material itself.

    Being an audio engineer I would discard any single speaker technology using phase magic to create stereo as it makes it unreliable as a studio reference tool. The Embracing Sound technology does not do this and is in my opinion the only single loudspeaker concept that works and presents an accurate stereo and surround information.

    I would dearly love for Craig to do a review of the COREGO system at some point but I think there's a number of stones to be turned first. Finding an American distribution network, appearing at NAMM etc.

      Studio monitors should be time aligned below 5 micro seconds, usually they are around 3 micro second,

      otherwise you don't hear what the track really is

    That's a really nice studio...Are you based in the US, Tokyo or elsewhere...or maybe traveling all over the place
    There's absolutely the need to experience our systems first hand. The difference between the traditional two loudspeaker systems (real stereo and phantom mono) and ours (real mono and phantom stereo) is quite striking. The depth information and the resolution and detail in the upper mid range are things worthy of notice. Talking from my own experience....there's no going back.

    As we're quite new to the market there will be reviews coming shortly.

      I travel. Officially I am at home in Shanghai, but most of the time I am at home with my family, and work at home.

    An older post, but I thought I'd mention that I'm still loving my Equator D5's. Awesome monitors.

        I have about 6 different pairs to work with, everything form a full PA. Hi Fi Speakers, Bookshelf, Computer Monitors and near fields.

        I did buy a pair of M-Audio BX5 last year when they were on sale. They are biamped 75W monitors that are more then loud enough at 1/2 volume. I do like the tone they produce. No problem handling the low end accurately and no harshness compared to other monitors I have.

        I like having some solid bass in my mixes where I can feel the bass and kick driving in my car. I hadn't quite been getting that until I recently found a set of Vintage Dynaco speakers someone was throwing out at the curb. I spotted them on the way to work one morning and figure what the heck. I threw them in the trunk thinking I might use the boxes. I got home and tried them out and they worked fine so I put them on the top shelf in the studio driven by an Alesis reference amp.

        When I use those and the M-Audio Nearfield's, the mixes come out sounding exactly the way I want them to. I now get solid lows, excellent 3D depth with no harshness in the mids or highs. For some reason those two sets just dial up the right sounds without guess work and tweaking I'd normally do testing out on different sets of speakers.

          I originally started with a pair of the original Mackie HR824w which like a dummy I sold at some point. These were the US built ones and I loved them. I have since downsized my space and since i wall mount I currently use a pair of cheapo tannoy reveals 501a. I recently purchased the M-Audio M3-6 and I plugged one in today and was disappointed that my Tannoys are much louder when these are more than double the power. I find that strange because everyone says these things are supposed to be loud which is something I want when I jam to them with my amp. That said I only got one so far and ill test with the other when it arrives later this week and see if this is consistent. So far Im pretty disappointed. They sound good but volume output is on the lower side than what I expected. I wish I had my original Mackies to be honest. Im running everything through an A&H QU-32 console.
          Stupidity in of itself is a fine art.
