When looking for new gear, Sound On Sound is always a very reliable reviewer. So if you're considering buying new active monitors, check out what they had to say about the new Pioneer RM-07!
The new Pioneer RM-07 features in the July issue of Sound on Sound magazine. SoS, as you may know, is always a trustworthy reviewer, so it might be worth taking notice of the great write-up that this range got, in particular because Pioneer is not usually the first name that comes to mind when thinking about monitors. Not that it's their fault of course - it's just that after decades being one of the top names in DJ decks, mixers and headphones, people tend to associate Pioneer more with those products, while a few other brands are better known almost exclusively for their speakers.
So it's great to readdress the balance and remind everyone that, yes indeed, Pioneer does superb monitors, too!
"Pioneer might not be the first name you’d associate with studio monitoring — but their new 'dual-coincident' creation is quite remarkable" - Phil Ward, Sound On Sound
These new speakers feature on the cover of the current issue of the Sound On Sound magazine, as well as appearing on a 6-page spread in the mag. The article is very detailed touching on the history of Pioneer and TAD Labs and then goes into a full blown review, including exploded product diagrams and frequency response graphs.
“All the way from the bass through to mid to top, the rm-07 offers a coherence of character that sounds detailed and trustworthy" said respected reviewer Phil Ward, “But of all the recent nearfield monitors I’ve tried it’s actually my favourite – not just because it works so well and fundamentally does the job, but because it seems to me to represent genuine, thoughtful ’old-school’ and skillful electro-acoustic engineering of great integrity and quality.”
