Metaxas & Sins The Macrophones
Mimicking the inverse of the microphones used in purist recordings, the "Macrophones" are mini-monitors designed to be used to seriously monitor recording/playback, which can be scaled with the addition of "modules" to become as miniature for location work to as grand as is necessary for studio or home playback.
They were specifically developed to monitor location recording work for the perfect positioning of microphones in 3D space and to help the recording engineer stereo mix the 4-5 microphone channels in real time to a stereo analogue tape.
Each macrophone is machined in two halves forming an ideal shape to mount the Accuton ceramic drivers and reduce cabinet colourations. The solid CNC-machined solid aluminium essentially extends the ceramic cone supports from the rigid speaker baskets to the entire cabinet.
A pair of Macrophones can fit into a Pelican 1600 series case to be bumped in and out of the most important acoustic venues, in the world - Abbey Rd, Musikverein, Concertgebouw or Carnegie Hall.
