Transparent sound – ideal for mixing and mastering
From mixing and mastering to video production and DJing, the LP-8 can adapt to any situation. The Lone Pine Series from Kali Audio is designed to offer highly transparent sound at an affordable price. Capture every nuance from your mix and hear subtle details that conventional speakers will miss. Transparent sound ensures that your mix will translate well to different mediums. This means no matter what system you play your music on it will sound at its best.
At the heart of the Kali Audio LP-8 is a powerful Class-D amplifier. This integrated amp ensures clean and reliable power, optimised to provide the best performance for the HP-6. The speaker provides you with 40W of power for the 68-inch woofer.
The reference-level output provides you with 20dB of headroom at the listening position. The wide amount of headroom ensures that even the loudest mixes are translated clearly.
3D imaging waveguide – immersive soundstage
The built-in 3D waveguide provides a highly immersive soundstage. It captures spatial detail that conventional speakers wont pick up. The result is a wider and deeper sound that is more cohesive. This allows you to work faster and make more informed decisions about your mix.
Low noise port tube delivers superior bass performance
Feel the bass. The specially-designed low noise port is unlike conventional bass ports. It works by making sure all the air leaves the port at the same velocity. This ensures you don't attract unwanted resonance resulting in an obscured low-end. The result is powerful yet clean bass performance, eliminating any extra noise.
EQ boundary control – optimise your sound for any space
Finding the correct listening position for your speakers can make or break your mixes. Especially in the modern era with smaller spaces and home-studios. A speaker placed against a wall or on a desk will react differently to a speaker on a stand or an acoustically treated room. Ensuring you find the best listening position will optimise the performance of your studio monitor.
The rear of the LP-8 features carefully tuned controls, providing compensation EQ settings to find the best possible sound. Kali Audio calibrated their EQ tuning at The Village Studios in Los Angeles. This combined with the low and high frequency trims, ensures the studio monitor can adapt to any space.
As well as the EQ controls, the rear panels feature a variety of analog connections. The LP-8 provides you with an array of inputs, comprised of XLR and TRS input, as well as an unbalanced RCA input. The RCA input even features a -10dBu sensitivity setting. You can use this to optimise the performance for use with laptops or smartphones.
