An incredible, balanced sound at a great price
MusicTech Magazine granted LYD 5 and 8 a 9/10 Choice Award. Now, they take on LYD 48 for a review, and we were pleased to learn that our 3-way studio monitor also received a Choice Award and has been named the flagship of the range by Musictech Magazine:
"They give a very rounded picture, have a lovely spacious sound and one that is deep and revealing (annoyingly so, at times!). For pinpoint mixing and EQing, we were getting on like a house on fire.
This is where the mids and upper-mid detail really come into their own, as you can properly get into mix-part separation when you get clashing frequencies in these ranges. The 48s certainly make that forensic EQing slicing not only possible, but almost fun.
I should mention the price, too, as these are available at less than a couple of grand – which, looking at previous three-way monitors we’ve reviewed, is a great price. Compared to their speaker peers, they seem to average out at a few hundred pounds less. So the LYD 48s offer an incredible, balanced sound at a great price, and are truly the flagship of a fleet of award-winning monitors.
The LYD range was worthy of our Best Monitor tag. Now its flagship has sailed in, it’s even better."
