Los Angeles, CA (September 23, 2014)—Barefoot speakers have replaced composer/producer Anthony Marinelli’s collection of high-definition monitors.
"Before I got the Barefoots, I had four pairs of very high-definition monitors," says Marinelli. "I had eight of them, because I rotate them into the 5.1 arrays I've had since I bought the first pair from Michael Jackson. They were his speakers and I just liked them and never could find any replacements. Then the Barefoots showed up and they were the first speakers that truly spoke to me and said, I'm your new speakers."
Marinelli is co-originator of Levels Audio Post. His studio complex, located at the corner of Hollywood and Highland has handled projects such as American Idol, The Bachelor and the VH1, ESPN, Teen Choice and MTV award shows. He has composed, conducted and performed music for more than 60 motion pictures and has also composed music for thousands of commercials.
"The sound of the Barefoots translates the best," Marinelli continues. "It doesn't hype the sound when I'm recording. It gives me the full audio spectrum from lows to highs. They're very quick. The transients are very rapid. I deal in a lot of different genres of music, and it's not like I use a certain kind of speaker for one kind of music and another kind of speaker for another. These speakers are just the truest that I've ever come across."
"You pay now or you pay later," he comments. "If the monitors make it sound better now, then I go somewhere else and it doesn't have that enhancement, then I'm going to pay, because I'm going to be missing something or there's going to be too much of something, whether it's low or mid or high."
