Hi everyone,

Is anybody using iLoud Micro Monitors?

How do they sound with S-Gear and how do they behave in mixing work?

I can't have big monitors because of space restrictions. Right now I'm using Tascam VL-S3. They sound very good considering the size and price but I'm feeling the need to upgrade them.

Thank you
Cheers

I have bought ILoud Micro to replace humble M-Audio BX5A to reduce the foot print further...
At the low/bedroom volume iLoud is more than adequate as I can hear better details. Also at the moderate volume they will not be far behind the 5" cone monitors soundwise. You will be surprised that they sound bigger than actually are.

So in a nutshell they are best suited for bedroom mixing for home guys like me or someone wanting to mix on the fly while travelling.

Personally I have had no problem with S-Gear and other modelers on iLoud. But one should not expect thumping brutal volume from the bigger boys. You cannot overlook the simple physics.

One thing I do not like is lack of 1/4" TRS input which they really should have included.

If the sole purpose is to reduce foot print from 5" monitors I don't think you will be disappointed.

Thanks a lot for your input. All the detail you wrote is really welcome.
From your description, I believe it is exactly what I'm looking for. The room where I play/record is far from adequate and I don't have space for big monitors... even 5'' will be big. Volume is also an issue so I think the iLouds fit perfectly what I'm looking for.
Not having 1/4'' TRS inputs is not a deal breaker for me, because my interface (Apogee ONE) has only 1/8'' out and I'm alrealdy using it with a 1/8'' to RCA cable to connect to my Tascam VL-S3.

They are not cheap, I know... but if they perform well I'm willing to spend a little bit on a good monitoring solution... Do you have any suggestions as an alternative to the iLouds?
Thanks

Hi Dave,

Not yet... still comparing with other stuff. But I'm still considering them.

I would like to make room for a pair of 5'' monitors (ADAM T5V's wouldf be perfect) but I think I would struggle to make them work well in the bedroom where I have my home studio stuff (together with a bunch of other things). The monitors must be placed really close to a wall and the desk is in a really "asymmetrical position" in the room.

I believe the iLouds could work. It's a shame I cannot try before buy...

Best wishes

Sergio
