Audio engineer Simon Ashton has taken to Kickstarter once again to launch the second generation Little British Monitor (LBM) MKII reference micro-speaker system and has already raised the required funds needed to make the jump into production with still 27 days remaining on the campaign.
Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the British speaker system which is now available to back with early bird pledges available from £279. Offering a 30% saving off the retail price which will take effect once the Kickstarter campaign comes to an end.
The Little British Monitor is a hand-built, desktop sized, aptX Bluetooth enabled, fully active, monitor-speaker with transmission-line bass loading. Simon explains a little more about the design, specifications in the inspiration behind the speaker system.
“The design goal was rather more simple – build the best loudspeaker possible in a small size of just 12cm x 12cm x 20cm (2.8L). Equally suited to the quality conscious recording engineer, musician or music lover. The LBM is small enough to be used in almost any location, yet capable enough fill the space with clean dynamic sound.
The LBM is an audio engineering tour-de-force with sound quality its primary goal. Most desktop sized loudspeakers use thin particle board or plastic cabinets, budget drivers with single component crossover circuits and class-D amplifiers. The LBM is elevated above these products by the detail of its acoustic and electronic design.”
