The Sonodyne journey into studio sound and design began with the SM50Ak. India, in the wake of embracing a global economy in 2005, issued several hundred FM licenses. This, in conjunction with a thriving cinema industry in Mumbai (Bollywood), prompted the introduction of a new range of cost effective yet high performance studio monitors. Experienced sound engineers, upon hearing the SM50Ak, remarked that it was among the best small monitors they had ever monitored on.
The Sonodyne SM50AK is a die-cast aluminium, 2-way nearfield active monitor, with a Magnetically shielded 5.25" Kevlar cone woofer and 26mm silk dome ferrofluid cooled tweeter with integral waveguide.
The SM 50Ak is ideal for not only desktop editing but also serious audio monitoring. It provides a well articulated yet full bodied response from its compact enclosure. The highs are open, the mids well resolved, and the bass, detailed and tight. Magnetically shielded, it may be placed beside video monitors.
