Hearing in three dimensions.

The lifelike, three-dimensional soundstage of Sceptre® S8 studio monitors has garnered praise from some of the most critical engineers in the audio industry. Their unique design delivers pure and honest sound reproduction that brings to light subtle nuances in recordings that cannot be heard in other monitors. The result is panoramic imaging, finely detailed transient response, and stunning dynamics is nothing short of astonishing.

Features

CoActual technology

  • Combines DSP time-correction and point-source design for symmetrical soundstage and micro-definition imaging
  • Unique coaxial transducer integrates 8-inch midrange driver and 1-inch (25 mm), horn-loaded HF transducer with Coaxial Speaker Coherence Alignment
  • Powerful DSP provides critical Temporal Equalization™ with multiple FIR filters

Acoustic-tuning controls

  • HF Driver Adjust (0 dB, +1 dB, -1.5 dB, -4 dB)
  • Acoustic Space settings (0 dB, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, -6 dB)
  • High-pass filter (Off, 60 Hz, 80 Hz, and 100 Hz, -24 dB/octave slope)
  • Sensitivity (+4 dBu to -10 dBV)

Power and safety

  • 180W RMS, Class D biamplification with internal heat sink
  • 102 dB maximum continuous SPL
  • RF shielding, current-output limiting, and over-temperature protection
  • Amplifier “soft start” feature eliminates popping on power-up
  • Internal power supply with IEC connector
  • Power switch with on/off LED

Inputs and outputs

  • Balanced XLR and ¼-inch TRS line-level inputs with A-taper level control
