FOSTEX NX-5A Nearfield Active Studio Monitors (pair)

FOSTEX NX-5A Nearfield active monitors (pair)


Created to offer a professional nearfield monitoring solution in tight spaces, the compact NX-5A excels in just about every department. The sound is full of clarity and audio accuracy, the stereo imaging is sharp and consistent and the level of sonic detail is incredible from a monitor so small.

Listen to a pair of powered Fostex NX Series reference monitors and you'll discover a superb natural sound with little colouration, deep tight lows and crystal clear highs, precise stereo imaging and an almost complete lack of distortion - even at high sound pressure levels.

Full of the latest in speaker technology and designed from the ground up for critical listening in both professional and project studios, broadcast and editing suites, or any other recording facility where a precise, transparent, professional sound is essential, the NX Series set new standards in sonic accuracy and packaging.

The engineering is superb with an internal wall design which eliminates standing waves, precision aluminium frames minimizing unwanted vibrations and a woofer which features a UDR tangential driver edge to eliminate unwanted resonances. - It all adds up.


*   Low Frequency Unit 5" (130mm) with HR (Hyper Radial) diaphragm which utilises the latest diaphragm 'Radial Papermaking Technology'      for natural and smooth sound reproduction
*  UDR (Up/Down Roll) Tangential driver edge eliminates the unwanted resonance
*   Wide-range 20mm hard dome tweeter
