Don't just have a banana, try a Monkey Banana Turbo 5!
Available in black this is is an active, nearfield monitor with a 5 inch bass woofer and a 1 inch silk-domed tweeter.
Featuring both analogue and digital connections, which is useful if you want to bypass your soundcard to use the converters that are built into the monitors. The Turbo 5 also has high and low controls to better suit your monitoring environment, allowing you to back off the bottom end if the room is bassy – a regular problem in small home studios.
The Monkey Banana Turbo 5 has some pretty serious engineering, which is demonstrated in its sleek, and distinctive shaped cabinet. This hexagonal shape minimizes standing waves within the cabinet which can lead to distorting and colouring of the audio. The strong MDF material also helps to minimise distortion of the low frequency driver.
Connections on the Turbo 5 include balanced line via XLR and Jack as well as an unbalanced RCA for connecting to older mixers or HI-FI equipment. The 5 inch woofer extends down to 55Hz and the silk dome tweeter extends to 30 kHz, giving you an accurate representation of the top end without any sloping near the 20 kHz hearing threshold.
