OFF - FOR SALE: SE Electronics Munro Egg 150 Monitoring System
I bought these out of curiosity about the unique design philosophy, which the designer describes in Youtube interviews. The round shape of the shell is to prevent cabinet resonance common in boxy speakers. There is a matching amplification system that is perfectly tuned to this combination of drivers, kept in a separate component to avoid disturbing the acoustic properties of the speaker.
It definitely works as intended by the designer, and produces very low levels of distortion. For people involved in near-field monitoring, it's a very competitive option.
I current use them as part of my desktop setup. One of the design choices for the amp was to allow a low level of buzzing in the left channel, which obviously is inaudible when music is playing. It is supposed to enhance amp performance at higher volumes, but it is noticeable late at night when it is very quiet, and my ear is just a couple of feet away from the left speaker. That really is my only reservation with them, but it shouldn't matter for someone who wants them for studio work where performance and accuracy is the only thing that matters.
Local buyers are welcome to come by for an audition. I do have the original boxes and can ship across the country if necessary.
