Designed for Demanding Studio and Home Applications

The airmotiv 6 was designed for applications that demand accurate full range sound, exceedingly low distortion, great imaging, and consistent performance. The airmotiv 6 is equally at home in a professional recording studio or in a top notch home studio, and can also be used directly with a DAC, preamp, or surround processor to create a truly impressive small audiophile system or a great home-theater setup.


Superior Transducer Technology with Precision Matching

Our exclusive airmotiv high-frequency transducer provides crystal clear, extended highs--even extending comfortably above the range of human hearing. At the same time, a powerful, precision-engineered airmotiv low-frequency transducer delivers crisp solid bass without any of the thinness or thump that plague other small speakers.

The high-frequency gain, low-frequency gain, and overall gain of each unit are calibrated to within 1.0 dB of our reference standard, which allows every pair to deliver stunning imaging and pinpoint placement of instruments in the sound stage, and ensures that any units you buy in the future will be an exact match for the ones you already have.


Bi-Amplified, Full-Featured Powerhouse

All of our airmotiv monitors are fully bi-amplified, with a separate amp for both the woofer and high-frequency transducer. The airmotiv 6s offer 210 watts per channel of power. Each amplifier is audiophile-grade, with toroid transformer, large electrolytic power capacitors, and stacked metalized film capacitors used throughout.

Plus, we haven't skimped on the features. Use either balanced or unbalanced inputs, tweak the response to your studio or room with active crossover controls, enjoy the convenience of 115V/230V user-switchable AC power, and relax with the confidence of full overdrive protection.
