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. 


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.


Complete Control

Clerk TM powered network communication allows realtime settings updates

Optimized Dispersion
Crystal clear sound with an extremely wide sweet spot

Sublime Sound Quality
Music sounds exactly as intended: nothing added, nothing withheld

Recommended Applications




"The strings were also reproduced with delicacy and realism. The soundstaging was exemplary, showing me precisely the space the strings occupied, mostly to the left of and behind Stipe. Each element of the mix was presented by the 8c’s in perfect balance with the others. A lovely experience."

Diego Estan for SoundStage! HiFi


"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."

"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."

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."

Kalman Rubinson for Stereophile magazine (make sure to click through the full five pages)

"...wide, smooth frequency response; sufficient and linear dynamic performance; crossover management; a cabinet free of audible resonances and edge diffraction; control of the dispersion of sound energy throughout the audioband."

This is a custom fully welded design; this ensures the best performance and that no parts are ever able to work loose using 4 x 50 x 50 uprights. Cable management is simple using a black coloured cable channel with clip-lock capping attached to the 2 rear uprights. All 4 uprights have an opening at the top to allow fill and push in caps to seal.

8mm thick top and bottom plates; stainless steel spikes adjustable for height and rake; finished in Matt Black (with other colours available upon application; gloss +$100). Custom size for varying height also available upon request.
