There is a reason why the Auratone 5C Super Sound Cube is a 2016 inductee into the TECnology Hall of Fame! There was always something about Auratone speakers that made them easy to listen to, mix on, and made them translate to just about any small radio or TV speaker on the planet. When they ceased manufacturing, a hole was left in the market that some have tried, but none have been able to fill. Today, Jack Wilson's grandson has decided to take up the Auratone banner again, finding modern manufacturing techniques and new sources to have just what was needed to create the classic sound again.
After lengthy testing and re-manufacturing our driver, we were finally able to achieve the purest sound equaling the characteristics of the original 5C Super Sound Cube. Our drivers are custom built in the United States, and the enclosures are handcrafted in our Nashville shop along with assembly and testing.
The 5C, which became famous in the 1970’s and 80’s and has been used in virtually every major recording studio worldwide, is still the undisputed industry standard for “real world” referencing in the recording studio.
Durability, flat full-range response, amazing power handling and portability have made Auratones the recording, broadcasting, and motion picture industries favorite reference monitors.
Purpose-built to complement the legendary TECnology Hall of Fame Auratone 5C Super Sound Cube reference monitors, the A2-30 amplifier powers two 8ohm loudspeakers at 30W each. Like the 5C Super Sound Cubes, the A2-30 amplifier is full of heart but intentionally short on bells and whistles – nothing but a power switch, a status LED, and pro-grade I/O. Experience the sublime honesty of the Auratone A2-30 + 5C Super Sound Cube combo!
In addition to sounding beautifully neutral and giving the 5C Super Cubes every opportunity to raise auditory ‘red flags’ when aspects of a mix aren’t sitting right — which is obviously its most important characteristic– the Auratone A2-30 amplifier has the same footprint as the Sound cubes so it looks great sitting on the meter bridge or desk.
