..you can with the LYD studio reference monitors.
LYD uses all the knowhow we’ve gained through supplying some of the world’s biggest recording studios with full-on reference monitor systems – and fits it into a pair of compact nearfield speakers.
And it isn’t a poor cousin of our big systems, either. It’s a complete redefinition of our own products – we went back to the drawing board to find out exactly how much further we could take those concepts.
As it turns out, the answer was ‘quite a lot’
Active nearfield studio monitors need to present the unvarnished truth: no colouration, no distortion, no flattery of the music running through them. You need to be able to hear exactly what each thread of the music is doing – so, when it comes to mixing and mastering, you know you can deliver exactly what the artist wants.
LYD combines decades of experience in producing no-compromise reference systems for major studios all over the world, with expertise in home and car audio, digital processing technology and materials science. And that combination means you’ll hear nothing but the truth.
But we don’t believe personal monitors need to look like standard pro boxes. You’ve taken great pride in building your studio; you want artists to feel invited, inspired, immersed in the music. So we’ve applied the same creativity to LYD as we do with our home hi-fi speakers – and we’re glad the people in the design department insisted on it, because they’ve created something beautiful.
LYD is designed to be a monitor anyone can use without a manual. Just getting started in your engineering or producing career? That’s daunting enough as it is without needing to decipher another complicated set of switches and dials on the back of your speakers. Seasoned pro? Then why should you have to learn a new set of controls? You shouldn’t.
Just tweak the wall-position or Sound Balance tilt-filter (for a brighter or darker sound) and you’re done. Best of all, you don’t have to crank them up to hear them at their best – something that’s hard to do if you’re in a smaller or home studio. LYD is designed to sound the same however loud you turn up the music.
Now it’s time to create…
