Dutch & Dutch 8c Studio Monitor Full-Range Active Loudspeakers (per pair)

Dutch & Dutch            Bonus Dutch & Dutch 8c Speaker Stands Included

 

The 8c is more than just a studio monitor. It is a unique acoustic concept. Its revolutionary cabinet design provides the 8c with constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c is above and beyond any other studio monitor in terms of neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance.

Sub frequencies are handled by 500 Watts of amplifier power and two high-excursion 8" subwoofer drivers, which employ boundary loading for maximum bass precision and impact.

Sophisticated Cabinet Design

From the smooth baffle to the solid oak exterior panels, the 8c's cabinet is designed to look as pure as it sounds. The internals are made of high quality birch plywood, a strong yet lightweight material excellently suited for loudspeaker construction. Pictured in Natural Oak with Black baffle (NB. Finishes available - Natural Oak or Black cabinet with Black or White baffles.)

  

Advanced Connectivity

With proprietary Clerk-powered software and electronics, all the right controls are at your fingertips. Whether you want to finetune the system to suit your acoustic environment, emulate another loudspeaker, or merely tweak the sound a bit, Clerk is ready.

Reviews

"The D&D 8c’s are the first loudspeakers to come into my room where I could achieve studio control room frequency response accuracy of 21 Hz to 20 kHz ±3 dB at the listening position without any external DSP. Also, the first loudspeaker where my preferred high frequency response (i.e. neutral) was just about perfect right out of the box."

MitchCo for Computer Audiophile

""Loudspeakers like this are a distraction but in an extremely good way. Dutch & Dutch is to be congratulated for doing such a complex job so well. If you want to hear the future of high fidelity, grab yourself an audition forthwith."

Jason Kennedy for HiFi Plus Magazine

"..flawless ALL the way up and down the frequency range and couldn’t possibly require an external subwoofer (unless you are interested in making your monitoring less accurate). That’s the short review."

"SMALL BOX, BIG SOUND"

Streaky of Streaky Mastering (Youtube Video Review)

"..the 8c is a pure music lover.... natural and neutral anywhere in the room. Sit close and listen into the recording - you are there. Sit farther away and hear more indirect sound with perfect timbre because of even dispersion and flat power response for a 'they are here' experience."

Marja and Henk for Six Moons (make sure to click through the full four pages)


"...cardioid response to the rear, impressive neutrality and bandwidth, plus digital conversion. Also in this case, the ability to use a front wall in a similar way to an in-wall monitor... some of the early adopters were mastering engineers."

Nigel Palmer for Audio Media International
