Magnat Monitor Reference 2A Overview
If you are looking for compact and stylish speakers that deliver high-quality sound for an entry-level price tag, you should consider the Magnat Monitor Reference 2A Powered Bookshelf Speaker. It has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a top-tier audiophile unit, but in an uber-compact package that can be easily stored away or transported. Reference 2A is a worthy addition to your home theater or living room. You can easily pair it with a compatible audio receiver, AV receiver, or Blu-ray player.
Reference 2A is not without its share of shortcomings, but fortunately, you have plenty of choices. Aside from Reference 2A, you can also choose from the Magnat Monitor Reference 5A Floorstanding Speaker or the more affordable Reference ONE, which are both excellent choices. Both are well made and offer a mix of materials, including a textured veneer and matte bezel. Each speaker is also analog and digital, with the latter allowing you to enjoy the finest acoustic open baring to your computer.
Magnat Monitor Reference 2A Feature
The Reference ONE is not a complete stand-alone system, but the Reference ONE can be integrated with a larger, multi-channel system, such as a surround sound system with a pair of front speakers and a subwoofer. Another nifty touch is the aptx low latency codec. This will make your favorite streaming apps and media devices play nice with Reference ONE's advanced audio technology. While not a substitute for a quality speaker, the aptx Low Latency will improve the overall quality of your music experience.
The Reference ONE's high-end audio componentry is matched with a high-end remote control, which allows for ease of use. Included are two AAA batteries and a three-meter speaker cable. As with any electronic gadget, keep in mind that the main plug must be compatible with the socket you use. Using the right cable will ensure the best possible performance.
Other features included with the Reference ONE include an HDMI output, an ARC (Advanced Remote Control) capability, and a built-in Bluetooth 5.0 module. With all these features, you will get the most out of your audio experience.
