BEHRINGER Studio Monitor Wins Listening Test Against $9,000 Hi-Fi Speaker

5/15/2013 Bothell, WA — In a recent independent test, the BEHRINGER TRUTH B2031A  acoustic-sciencestudio monitor loudspeakers matched the performance of the much higher-priced and acclaimed Linkwitz Orion loudspeakers. Earl R. Geddes, PhD., a leading authority in loudspeaker design, conducted a scientifically controlled blind listening test as well as a series of measurement tests in his advanced polar measurement lab. In the end, Dr. Geddes concluded that the TRUTH B2031A was in the same class as the much more expensive loudspeaker. In a letter to BEHRINGER, Geddes says, “I was totally impressed by the BEHRINGER’s performance. It was clearly a highly-refined design which showed a great deal of talent in its design.”

BEHRINGER is excited to receive such high praise from an expert of Dr. Geddes’ caliber in the audio industry. Geddes went on to say, “I must commend your design team on what can only be seen as a remarkable achievement — bringing truly high performance into the range of highly-affordable product.” The popular TRUTH Loudspeakers have been sold to everyone from professional audio engineers to musicians building their own home studio. “We are pleased to have heard from Dr. Geddes personally about his test of the B2031A monitors, and we are not surprised at the results. The speakers have been used by some of the most discerning audio experts in the world,” commented SVP of Marketing, Costa Lakoumentas.
