APS Klasik Active Studio Monitor Pair Quick n' Dirty

In this video, Sound Pure pro audio specialist Chuck Giardino discusses the many benefits of the APS Klasik Active Studio Monitor Pair.

Manufacturer's Description from APS

Klasik’s history began in early 2015 when we presented active studio monitor called Klasik, which quickly began to appear in recording studios and home recording systems around the world, setting quality standards for near-field monitors available at a reasonable price.

Klasik became the basic working tool for a huge group of sound engineers, who shared their experience and insights into the product with us.

We decided to use the gathered knowledge and after five years of Klasik’s presence in our offer it was time for a change. For 12 months we worked on its new, improved version – Klasik 2020. The result of our cooperation with users is very satisfactory. We have developed active studio monitor which is a development of the concept contained in the Klasik – uncompromising sound quality available at a reasonable price.

DESIGN

We designed and created monitor that:

- sounds even more natural,

- has a clearer and more transparent midrange,

- plays bass with more control and precision,

- has a more practical adjustments of bass depth,

- plays the sound material with less non-linear distortion,

- allows for higher sound levels of SPLmax,

- is equipped with an optical LED override indicator of the power tip "clipping",

- whole acoustic band has more dynamics.

 

We have achieved the above mentioned advantages through:

- optimization of mid-bass speaker operation in a larger enclosure volume, both in terms of diaphragm excursion as well as currents and electromagnetic fields associated with the speaker coil,

- introduction of controlled acoustic loss, which results in recreating the advantages of a closed enclosure, while maintaining the advantages of a bass-reflex enclosure,

- complete redesign of the bass-reflex port,

- new solutions for bass equalization,

- stiffening of the speaker enclosure and mechanical construction of the electronics,

- increase by 33% the power of the tweeter and mid-bass circuit amplifiers, while optimising amplifiers for a larger volume of enclosure and optimised bass equalization,

- introduction of a practical position of the bass depth switch for the implementer, with simultaneous signalling of the "clipping" effect placed on the front under the logo graphics,

- a number of improvements and changes to the electronics in terms of electrical, mechanical and acoustic design, as well as in terms of repeatability and reliability.

 

The Klasik 2020, like its predecessor is addressed mainly to music and sound enthusiasts who require quality and reliability from the tools they use. Klasik 2020 makes it much easier and faster to work on sound material and makes it much more enjoyable.

We offer you advanced active studio monitor - Klasik 2020 and we are sure that it will open the way to even greater satisfaction with the effects of your creative work.

Klasiks: 
The APS Klasik is one of the newer offerings from APS, where they set out to build an excellent monitor at a reasonable price. They have stated they have no plans to build anything cheaper, as it would wind up compromising quality to do so. Most of the work into it was in the cabinet tuning and the crossover circuit. These are a great option for home studios, and if someone needs something more portable. Having RCA inputs as well allows you to even run an unbalanced input straight from your phone with a Y cable. The Klasiks are also available to order in a Hi-Fi version at the same price, with a standby power mode and front mesh to protect the drivers. 
 
Aeons:
The original APS monitor, which is significantly larger than the Klasik, even though the bass driver is only 1" larger. It is more designed as a mid-nearfield, and as such we do suggest a greater listening distance of 3' and up ideally. Being more room sensitive as well than the Klasiks, this is more geared towards advanced home studios, or professional facilities. Translation on these has frequently been commented on as being effortless. The vast majority of Aeons we supply are with the Fabric dome tweeter installed, and in most rooms, they work best with the tweeter rolled back ~1.5db. With the bass extension by-passable on these just like on the Klasiks, you can have a faster mid-range response, at the expense of less low end extension. These do not require a sub unless you are working in a large control room (suggest 500sqft and up). Even then, if you have them positioned properly, it would be best to take it as a case by case basis.
 
Some reviews online have put the Klasiks as above the Aeons, but in every single demo I have done having them both properly set up and tuned to the room side by side, the Aeons win hands down. A lot of it is just that the Klasiks are more room forgiving, and don't require the attention to setup to the level of the Aeons. 
 
Coax:
These are more of a specialty item, for clients looking for massive and detailed stereo fields. They were designed for imaging, and are not as flat as the other monitors from the line. In smaller studios they do work well by themselves for acoustic work, however in most cases, we do pair them with a subwoofer. These are the only sealed cabinet of the monitors from APS at this time, and as such do not have the same low end punch the other models have.
 
Trinity: 
These monitors are designed for larger studios, and really offer an exceptional all around performer. They have a massive stereo field, exceptional detail, and are very smooth and full. They offer essentially three monitors in one with their different modes, accessible via switches on the back panel. You can run them as a Three-Way, woofer bypassed (standard 2-way) or midrange direct (mixcube style). Even in fairly large studios these will seldom require a sub to be even considered. Although they can be used as near-fields, we suggest them being at a mid to far-field position to be able to really hear them properly. and get the best from them. Keep in mind these are LARGE, being 2 feet x 2 feet x 1 foot, and over 80lbs each. These can be ordered in either a vertical or horizontal configuration, or even as floor-standing tower speakers. 
 
Sub10:
Versatile sub, designed to be very clean, and low distortion. Variable LPF to allow for matching with many different monitors. Precise level tuning and phase reverse to allow proper setup. 
 
Sub15:
Designed more so as a low frequency extension of monitors, to make them resemble large mains rather than smaller monitors + sub. Exceptionally smooth and balanced. We do not stock these, as they are special order only.
