What the experts are saying

For the remastering and restoration of Gone with the Wind and Wizard of Oz, we needed a monitoring system that could accurately reproduce the sonic nuances and dynamic range inherent in many of the old soundtracks, and when mixed and programmed to 5.1 surround format, be able to translate seamlessly to our THX mixing stage. The MK 5.1 monitoring system was a perfect medium for this.
John Blum – Product Specialist, Chace Productions 1999
We feel that high performance audio is essential in picture editing and the use of the MK 2510 system, with its excellent dialogue intelligibility, allowed us to catch production sound faults early in the process. In addition, high quality sound can affect an editor’s decisions by providing an enhanced emotional context to a scene. During the production process, our editors were so taken with the quality of sound that a full MK 2510 system was shipped to Leavensden Studios in England, to be used in the cutting of the production dailies.
Ben Burtt – Sound Designer, Star Wars Episodes I, II and III
We’ve been using MK THX speaker systems on the Star Wars films in both the sound design and picture editing suites. The MK THX speakers’ accuracy and imaging qualities let us hear all the nuances of dialogue, music and sound effects at every stage of the creative process. This gives us the ability to create the powerful, yet subtle and persuasive soundtracks that are the hallmark of the Star Wars films.
Rick McCallum – Producer, Star Wars Episodes I, II and III
These monitors are, to put it simply, quite wonderful! The imaging is extraordinarily precise. When we planned this studio, we wanted a high end digital room, that still retained an analogue feel and the MK’s suit that brief perfectly since they have a real presence, an analogue quality and warmth to their sound.

Hemmabio, Sweden – Review of Iw300
We reported a few weeks ago that the renowned M&K Sound had arrived in Hungary, and we also took some photos while the first shipment was being unpacked. Since then, the Home Movie team has not only installed and calibrated the sound system, but has also carried out the first improvements. See as PDF.

“The innovation continued at M&K Sound, and they introduced the world’s first powered subwoofer in 1977. The masterminds at M&K Sound have continued to be at the forefront of subwoofer innovation and their newest subwoofers, the “X” series, promises to best all others.

When I was recently asked to review the flagship M&K Sound S300 Series monitors, M&K Sound also sent along their X12 subwoofer to round out the 5.1 speaker system. While this review focuses on the THX Ultra 2-certified X12 subwoofer ($3,200), my impressions are within the context of the X12 sub as an integral part of that 5.1 system.
