Monster has debuted its ClarityHD Model One High Definition Multi-Media Speaker Monitor.
The ClarityHD Model One High Definition Multi-Media Speaker Monitor.
The ClarityHD Model One will begin shipping worldwide in mid July, and retails for $749.95 a pair. The Monster ClarityHD Model One will be available in several designer colors, including automotive grade gloss yellow, and red to start, with additional colors coming this fall.
“We named our new ClarityHD speaker system the Model ‘One’ for the simple reason that it’s the first of its kind to combine such powerful audiophile-grade performance with total user simplicity and all the connectivity features demanded by today’s consumer – not yesterday’s," said Monster CEO, Noel Lee.
"The way we listen to music has changed. We no longer build our family rooms around a stack of gear in the center of the room, and we don't want the intrusion of huge speakers and other components. And thanks to portable, digital music players like the iPod, we now keep vast music collections in our pockets. The Model One delivers the kind of big sound you wouldn't expect from a bookshelf speaker, and with the iPod as heart of the system, you can listen all your favorite music in ‘higher definition.’”
The Monster ClarityHD Model One features 6.5-inch bass drivers with 4-layer voice coils for deep extended low end response and proprietary soft-dome tweeters.
In addition to the iPod dock, a full complement of versatile inputs are included for user flexibility and “future readiness,” including: 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.
