The 8c is more than just a studio monitor. It is a unique acoustic concept. Its revolutionary cabinet design provides the 8c with constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c is above and beyond any other studio monitor in terms of neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance. Sub frequencies are handled by 500 Watts of amplifier power and two high-excursion 8” subwoofer drivers, which employ boundary loading for maximum bass precision and impact.
From the smooth baffle to the solid oak exterior panels, the 8c's cabinet is designed to look as pure as it sounds. The internals are made of high quality birch plywood, a strong yet lightweight material excellently suited for loudspeaker construction.
With Dutch & Dutch’s proprietary Clerk-powered software and electronics, all the right controls are at your fingertips. Whether you want to finetune the system to suit your acoustic environment, emulate another loudspeaker, or merely tweak the sound a bit, Clerk is ready. Soon to become Roon endpoints, the 8c’s connect direct to ethernet to provide room filling sound without the need for other connectivity or amplification components.
The 8m is an ideal tool for discerning audio engineers. Its highly optimized baffle geometry ensures perfectly neutral sound, a wide sweet spot, and phenomenal imaging.
On its own, the 8m is capable of providing useful output down to well below 40 Hz. If that is not enough, subwoofers can easily be added: each 8m has a DSP-controlled output that can turn any active subwoofer into a Clerk-powered low frequency element.
The 8m's cabinet is handcrafted of stiff, strong birch plywood. In combination with extensive and cleverly placed bracing, this reduces vibrations to a minimum. The large, symmetrical bass reflex port ensures optimal woofer loading and turbulence-free performance at all sound pressure levels.
The 8m is more than just a speaker: it can be a central part of a multi-sub setup too. Its configurable output has crossover, filtering and other DSP options, all of which can be adjusted from your smartphone or tablet. Soon to become Roon endpoints, the 8c’s connect direct to ethernet to provide room filling sound without the need for other connectivity or amplification components.
