"The Phasx PX600 is the most dynamic, impacting, transparent and authentically accurate nearfield system I have heard — with great soundstage depth and purity of tone. It has power to spare and goes down deep. It's a reference-quality speaker that can also be used effectively as a midfield. Their technologies actually work: anti-comb-filtering, high headroom amplifiers, low distortion tweeter, and accurate voicing. It makes my job as a mastering engineer infinitely easier."

Our PX Series monitors are DSP driven electro-acoustic engines designed to present their users with the same caliber of audio evaluation quality you would expect to find in a first class commercial recording studio’s control room.
All Phasx audio recording monitor systems are purpose built to operate on a standard desktop in a home-office type environment, with little to no acoustic treatment in the room outside of normal household furnishings. Of course they work amazing in professional and project studio environments too.
Giant home theater, OEM car system, or ring-tone speaker; a hit is still a hit no matter where it’s played back... but how do you know for sure?
Most of us used to run out after a studio session and “sanity check” the latest effort on a car stereo, a smart phone, a cheap flat screen TV, or Bluetooth speaker. What if you could do all that without ever leaving the desktop?
All our monitor systems make it possible to A/B switch between full range, full performance and a suite of acoustic simulations for common playback equipment. In some models you can switch between other powered monitors too.
Unlike just about any desktop monitor ever made, all Phasx studio monitors reproduce bass below 30Hz! That’s right, under 30 Hz on your desktop without the need for any additional subwoofers whatsoever.
Translation; you’ll experience bass response that is vastly better integrated into your music, and with the PX600 system, fully preserve IALD/IATD well below 28Hz!
Oh and no need to worry, we spent years learning how to make the bass move you and not your desk.
All monitor controller features are built in to our Phasx monitor APPs. They run on most smart phones and tablets, and are available as free downloads for all Phasx owners.
In addition to the monitor and simulation switching mentioned above, Phasx monitor apps provide highly accurate level and loudness information (critical for mastering), headphone listening, and of course modelling.
Wizard guided system set-up, maintenance, trouble-shooting, system firmware updates, and room EQ, are among many other included features.
Beauty is More Than Skin Deep
We've literally spent years tuning DSP code, evaluating transducers, amplifiers, and IC components to get the level of quality we demand.
All Phasx audio production suites use the XMOS USB 2 high resolution audio solution, Analog Devices DSP, and outrageous tweeters designed and built exclusively for Phasx.
The PX600 uses custom Hypex NCoreTM power amplifiers and top of the line Cirrus Logic & Burr-Brown DACs. PX300 uses top of the line amps and DACS too the likes of which are seen only in monitors costing at least 5 times the price of the entire PX300 system.
Friends, this is just the tip of the iceberg... to learn more about our monitoring systems check out our Spring 2017 catalog.
Price. Performance. Perfect.
Phasx desktop audio production systems are not only a great value but are revolutionizing the way we create, listen to, and share music.
The S600 Shadocaster monitors will be available Fall 2017! If you want to be the one to tell your friends all about it and be the first to own a Phasx instrument get in touch with us now. We look forward to hearing from you!
