Monster (http://www.monstercable.com) has debuted its ClarityHD Model One High Definition Multi-Media Speaker Monitor (SRP: $749.95/pair). The US$749.95-per-pair, all-in-one speaker system features a built-in, high-powered digital amplifier and iPod dock.
The ClarityHD Model One will begin shipping worldwide in mid-July 2011. It will be available in several designer colors, including automotive grade gloss yellow, and red to start, with additional colors coming this fall.
The Monster ClarityHD Model One’s audio performance is made possible thanks to the inclusion of advanced 6.5-inch bass drivers with 4-layer voice coils for deep extended low end response and proprietary soft-dome tweeters for smooth articulate highs with superior inner detail, according to Head Monster Noel Lee. The speaker’s full complement of inputs accommodates virtually any type of source from consumer audio and video gear to professional recording and DJ gear, he adds.
In addition to the iPod dock, a complement of inputs are included: a mini-jack input for smart phones, MP3 players and computers; a balanced 1/4–inch TRS input for recording and DJ applications; RCA inputs for any audio or video device; and a StreamCast Port for future technologies such as Monster’s upcoming, optional Bluetooth module that will allow you to connect any Bluetooth source wirelessly to the Model One.
