Ribbon Monitor 458

The Ribbon Monitor 458 produces Ribbon transparency from a highly aesthetic package.  It's small footprint and wide dispersion allow great placement flexibility while still maintaining a superb soundstage.  The use of a 8" Ribbon and multiple 5" heavy duty woofers assures very high dynamics and great clarity unmatched in this form factor.  Bass reach is exceptional in this size of loudspeaker.

The Ribbon Monitor 458 can be used in virtually all rooms in most ranges of systems from pure stereo in a dedicated music system to full surround sound in a large home theater system.  Because of its considerable bass reach,it would only need the low frequency output augmentation of a subwoofer in a stereo system in larger sized room or in a home theater installation where full bass reach is demanded.

As with all Newform Ribbon loudspeakers, superb results can be achieved with a wide range of tube and solid state electronics.
