In celebration of 25 years’ production of the world’s leading professional reference monitors, we are proud to launch the hand built, limited edition, DB1 Gold.

In celebration of 25 years’ production of the world’s leading professional reference monitors, we are proud to launch the hand built, limited edition, DB1 Gold - the finest version of the DB1 studio monitor made to date. This updated model provides the discerning music lover with a window into the professional world, giving access to the identical sound balance and vibe intended by the recording artist, without missing a single nuance.

The DB1 Gold has the ultra-high definition sonic performance and finesse of the current professional range with added refinement to its look and feel. The cabinet features the studio heritage textured black front baffle and a black ash veneered main body. And such is the confidence in build quality and engineering excellence that the warranty has been extended to a phenomenal 20 years - unheard of in both the professional and hi-fi worlds.

Customer Reviews

"I'm possibly what you may consider a "prosumer" as I've worked in professional audio from the day a bought a pair of ATC PA75 drivers from Billy Woodman in 1979. I listen to every music genre at work, sometimes purely acoustic, often on our installed d&b concert system arrays, or in the recording studio on a mix of ATC/ Genelec monitors. Having heard the PCM 21 on demo recently, my impression was that they would work really well in my home apartment environment, possibly better than the ATC SCM11 I was considering. When the DB1 Golds became available at a very attractive price in Sydney I jumped in & I'm very glad I did! They are a very well built & designed monitor. The level of detail in the top & midrange is as you would expect at this level- it's accurate with pace, & they go surprisingly low, with a definition that delights. I won't be adding subs, there's as much there as the ageing B&W floorstanders they replaced. I do find they behave, like the near field monitors they fundamentally are, in that the imaging at 2m listening distance works well if you're listening dead centre. Off axis they loose that spatial positioning to some degree. I also purchased the matching stands. I hate buying stands on the basis that if you're going to spend that amount of cash on a steel pole you may as well just buy a floor stander! But, the sandwich layers of isolation on the top & base plates is well engineered & they're quite elegant (for two steel poles!)"
"Expressive and fun to listen to. Very satisfied."
Mr H, Yachimata-shi, Chiba
"It's such a small speaker, the smallest I ever had, however for my listening conditions (room appr. 30m2), really the best speakers I've ever had. And I owned a lot (Kef, B&W, Magnat)... Superb sound! And they eat any kind of music with ease..."
Mr O, Hilversum
