IK Multimedia PRECISION 500



Single Hand-crafted 5in reference monitor with room correction


Handcrafted in Italy, iLoud Precision is a breakthrough in nearfield monitoring. It combines state-of-the-art DSP with a superior electro-acoustic system, a combination only possible with IK’s unique 25 plus years’ expertise in both loudspeaker design and digital signal processing. This advanced processing, combined with custom power amplifiers, delivers true phase and time coherence, an ultra-linear frequency response and extended low end. Enjoy a new level of audio accuracy, detail and performance from your studio monitors.

iLoud Precision also offers class-defying flexibility as well. With built-in ARC™ room calibration and included measurement microphone, iLoud Precision instantly adapts and performs its best in any environment. iLoud Precision includes X-MONITOR: an advanced control application for Mac and Windows. X-MONITOR allows for extended acoustic space setups, assists with the ARC calibration, displays before/after in-room frequency responses, and switches among various virtual monitoring voices to emulate the most iconic studio monitors of all time, letting you audition your mix on different reference systems with just one pair of speakers.
