Manufacturer's Description from Ex Machina

The smaller of our first two monitors, Pulsar is an ideal choice for nearfield and midfield monitoring applications in any setup, or as primary monitors in small to medium sized rooms. Like all our monitors, Pulsar features custom SEAS drivers with cutting edge diaphragm materials, acoustically inert, sealed Valchromat® cabinets, Hypex Ncore® amps and AKM Velvet Sound™ conversion, and a dedicated SHARC® DSP per speaker deploying our proprietary calibration technology. And, like all our monitors, it offers an ultra-wide sweet spot, linear phase and magnitude response, vanishingly low distortion and superb transient response, for effortless clarity and highly detailed insight into your mixes. Allowing you to make better decisions, faster, every time.

Building on the foundation of our Pulsar model, the Quasar is all about delivering more; more power, more inspiration, more accuracy and more fun. The Quasar boast a deeper low end extension, volume and a performance that will leave you feeling as if you're inside the music.

About Manufacturer

Ex Machina Soundworks began as a rebellion against the status quo in audio. Tired of the tacit, creeping compromises we all take for granted as the cost of making music, we set out to create something different entirely. Something paradigm changing. Combining a true diversity of backgrounds, perspectives and expertise, from artificial intelligence and DSP, to circuit design, to acoustical and materials science, to 30+ years of recording and music making experience, we set out to push the envelope of what is scientifically possible in loudspeaker design. All with one goal in mind: shorten the gap between you and your art. Make your moves clearer, your process faster, the details obvious, your window vast. So you can have no doubts in the choices you make.
