Boston, MA (August 12, 2020)—Symphonic Acoustics has unveiled its new Dual 8V studio monitors. Described as “ultra high-end,” the 2X8V is the result of a longtime design and manufacturing collaboration with George Augspurger, John Storyk and others.

Intended for mixing and monitoring across a range of genres, each pair of monitors ship with a curated selection of power and DSP options. According to founding partner PK Pandey, the sound signature of the 2X8V features an extended bass response, punchy midrange and smooth high end.

“We are using a combination of different high-quality manufacturing materials and have made improvements in internal cabinetry design, particularly how the horn is constructed,” says Pandey. “Also, in close collaboration with George Augspurger, we made refinements to the cabinet while improving horn materializations. This has resulted in improved sonic performance, with increased cabinet stability.”

Aiming to provide large-format SPLs from in 13-inch wide cabinet, the 2X8V monitoring system was developed in collaboration with George Augspurger; John Storyk, WSDG founding partner; Grammy-award winning engineer Renato Cipriano; and REDI Acoustics throughout the design process. Available in both high gloss and matte finishes, the system is available in several colors including the signature Metallic Grey and Copper. Symphonic is also able to formulate custom colors to suit the aesthetics of an environment and can facilitate soffit mounting if required.

The system ships with a power and DSP package that can be customized and tuned to accommodate a specific listening environment. “We chose to partner with various manufacturers because they represent the pinnacle of technology in their respective areas of expertise,” Pandey explained. “During the testing phase, we evaluated dozens of amplification and DSP systems, and at the end of the day, we wanted to work with the companies that we considered to be the most innovative and responsive to our needs.”
