The Award Winning

Kii THREE

CARDIOID POINT SOURCE

The Kii Three Studio Monitor redefines the realm of studio sound with its groundbreaking design and technological prowess. Engineered to deliver a linear frequency response and exceptional phase coherence, this monitor doesn't just excel in technical performance - it revolutionizes it. Each speaker, encased in a sleek, compact, and lightweight enclosure, boasts an incredible 1500 watts of power distributed across six drivers. This power is not merely about volume; it's about precision and control, enabling the Kii Three to produce substantial and impactful sound without compromising quality or clarity.

The genius of the Kii THREE lies in its innovative approach to acoustics. Traditional box speakers direct higher frequencies towards listeners, while lower frequencies disperse in all directions. With its compact design, the Kii THREE overcomes this limitation, ensuring that even the bass and low mids are precisely directed toward the recording engineer. This results in clarity and detail in sound, which was once the exclusive domain of prominent speakers, now available in a form that fits effortlessly into your studio space--a game-changing experience.

TRUST THE TECH

The Kii Three is an indispensable asset in today's ever-evolving studio landscape, where audio software democratizes music production. The monitor system is more crucial than ever for audio professionals, serving as the cornerstone of every project. The Kii Three doesn't just meet this need - it elevates it, providing a transparent, revealing, and consistent sound that accurately translates your work to the world. It represents a competitive edge, offering unparalleled sonic performance that can set you apart in the industry. Working as a cardioid point source monitor, the Kii THREE will only elevate the quality of your output.

At the heart of the Kii Three's innovation is the Active Wave Focusing technology, conceptualized by Bruno Putzeys. This revolutionary feature shapes the monitor's sound dispersion, channeling the audio precisely into the sweet spot. The intelligent DSP processing equips the Kii Three with a cardioid sound dispersion pattern, effectively handling frequencies requiring much larger systems. This sophisticated design allows the Kii Three to replicate the immersive feel and impact of sizeable central monitor systems, traditionally only achievable with expansive setups.

Specifications

Custom Waveguided Tweeter

Our Custom Waveguide Tweeter is an acoustic device that helps control and direct the dispersion of sound waves the tweeter produces. Our Waveguide improves the tweeter’s efficiency, controls its directivity, and enhances its overall performance.

5'' Midrange

Our five-inch midrange provides a smooth frequency response, delivering incredible clarity, detail, and precision. Making vocals and instruments sound lifelike and engaging.

Cardioid Dispersion

In a nutshell, our technology solves one of the biggest problems in audio playback: the acoustics in your room. Due to its directional dispersion, it eliminates much of the negative influence of the listening room.

Jacob Collier talks about
his Kii THREEs

Jacob Collier is a two-time GRAMMY award-winning singer, composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist, based in London, England. Dubbed by many as one of the most innovative creative musicians of his generation, Jacob first rose to popularity through the virality of his homemade multi-track YouTube videos. In these, Jacob re-creates well-known songs, layering multiple voices and instruments on top of one another, and visualizes these with a multi-Jacob mosaic split-screen layout. Collier’s musical style fuses elements of jazz, a cappella, groove, folk, electronic music, classical music, gospel, soul and improvisation, and often features extreme use of re-harmonization. Since his inaugural video in 2011, Jacob’s online social channels have garnered over 300K international followers and more than 13 million YouTube views. His viral hits, such as his rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing”, also made him popular among the Jazz community. Some legendary fans include Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Take 6, to name a few.

Roon Tested

"Roon Tested" is a designation Roon Labs gives audio devices verified to work well with Roon software. Unlike "Roon Ready" devices, which are typically network-enabled and can directly interface with Roon's core server, "Roon Tested" devices may not have network capabilities but have been tested to ensure they perform optimally when connected to a Roon system, typically through USB, HDMI, AirPlay, Google Cast, or other connections.
