…They’d been recommended to me by a couple of clients, but I always associated Pioneer with DJs and decks. I didn’t think they’d sound that great but, 18 months later, I’m still using them as my secondary monitors. Since Kevin Grainger and myself set up Wired Masters 14 years ago, we’ve become known for specialising in stem-mastering, particularly in dance music, so accurate and reliable monitoring is of vital importance. The RM-07s have proved to be ideal for me.”
When you take them out of the box, the RM-07s feel reassuringly heavy and sturdy. My first impression was that these are well-crafted monitors. I’ve used cheap monitors in the past and you can tell when manufacturers have cut costs on a few parts, but the build quality on the RM-07s is excellent. When I first set them up, I was immediately impressed with the sound – a weighty low end, detailed mid range and a smooth high frequency response means that these are great monitors for DJs and producers.
My main monitors are a PMC MB2-XBD system and the RM-07s are a great secondary pair of monitors that really complement the PMCs. Although they sound great when you crank them up, these are also speakers that sound good when monitoring at quieter levels. They retain the dynamics and that all-important low end perfectly.
The 3-band EQ on the back of the RM-07s is a very useful function as it allows you to tweak the low end, mid range and high frequencies accordingly to compensate for any deficiencies in your room. I've been to studios where the sound isn’t that great and people have said that the monitors are terrible but half the time they’re not; it’s the room that's at fault. Speakers sound different in every room so the fact you can tweak the EQ is a great feature. I'm really impressed with the RM-07s and a lot of my clients have complimented them as well.
Drawing on a rich heritage in speaker design, the RM series monitors with HD coaxial driver units are packed with pro-audio technology to deliver a high SPL and crystal clear audio with crisp sound separation.Find out more
