AKAI PROFESSIONAL RPM8 STUDIO MONITORS NOW SHIPPING

Loudspeakers Optimized For Excellent Reproduction Of Heavy Bass Frequencies

Cumberland, R.I. (Dec. 1, 2009) – Akai Professional, the name synonymous with music production, announces that their RPM8 reference production studio monitors are now shipping to retailers. Perfect for contemporary music production, RPM8 monitors have been specifically tuned for use with the company’s MPC music production workstations and production controllers.

RPM8 studio monitors are two-way, active, bi-amplified, nearfield loudspeakers intended for producers, recording engineers, remix artists, DJs and other musicians. The two-way monitors each feature an eight-inch woven-kevlar low-frequency driver with 80W RMS of continuous amplification for robust, full bass all the way down to 39 Hz. The monitors’ high-frequency system consists of a one-inch silk-dome tweeter with 40W RMS of continuous amplification, mounted on a custom, functionally optimized waveguide for excellent control of directivity and reduction of unwanted early reflections.

RPM8 studio monitors contain active, fourth-order crossovers for outstanding separation and optimal power management. Their cabinet is constructed of industry-standard MDF for low resonance, and is dually ported on the front baffle for bass extension in any setting including soffit-mounted installations. The bi-amplification, ported cabinet design and overall acoustical efficiency combine to produce a speaker that can deliver up to powerful 113 dB SPL and with accurate frequency response from 39 Hz to 20 kHz. Producers will appreciate the RPM8s’ bicolor LED clip indicator, which assists them in avoiding damage to their system. Engineers can connect their professional studio systems to the RPM8s’ combination XLR-balanced 1/4" TRS inputs for compatibility with a wide variety of source equipment.
“There is so much low-end content in music being made today,” said Mark Frederick, VP Sales and Marketing, Akai Professional, “we felt that a studio monitor specifically designed for extended low frequency playback would appeal to the people who already use our MPCs.”

I just picked up the Akai APC40 from HipHopTools today and I couldn't be happier. I ordered my MPC from these guys a few years ago and I was happy with the service so I decided to give them a shout about ordering the APC40. The guys took my name and e-mail addrress (they even remember me from my previous order) and within no time I got a got an e-mail that one was in stock! Now I got my APC, my MPC and Ableton up and running flawlessly. Amazing combo. Thanks again.

I bought the APC40 after weeks of looking for the right vendor (and waiting for my money to be available.) HipHopTools.com ended up being perfect. Not only is it in Toronto, but the owner is extremely helpful. The free sample packs that come with most of the gear here is a great bonus as well. Lots of high quality samples. I will definitely buy here again (MPC 500 is probably next for me.)
