“ What I need as a mastering engineer is a speaker that tells me exactly what the music is and how it is presenting itself. Every decision I make in the studio is based on my perception, if my perception is off, then so are my decisions. I choose Focal speakers because they give me an honest audio picture of the music. The most important piece of equipment for me is the monitoring environment. I rely on Focal speakers every day, my reputation depends on them. ”
