Event Opal: the best monitors ever?

Buy Now Buy Now

The first new model since the company’s takeover by Australian microphone maker Røde promised to elevate the Event brand to a higher-end slot in the monitor hierarchy.
Since then press, dealers and potential customers alike have been anxious to discover if the Opals would be able to live up to these lofty claims. Early review units have already landed with our press colleagues, and their verdicts have fuelled an even stronger surge of interest, which is hardly surprising given the glowing praise heaped on the Opals:

‘I’m impressed: I can’t remember when I last enjoyed working with new monitors as much as I did with these, and there was nothing about the sound that felt wrong or out of place. Inevitably a high-end speaker costs high-end money, but even so, the Opals cost less than the monitors with which they stand comparison, and they should appeal to the more serious private studio owner.’ Paul White, Editor-in-Chief, Sound on Sound (August 2009)

The Event Opals were pronounced the Winner in the annual Future Music monitor group test, and awarded the coveted Future Music Platinum Award:

‘Easily the best active monitor you can get for the money, and sets a new standard for the industry… The Event Opal is a staggering achievement and the best near-field monitor I’ve ever heard.' Robbie Stamp, Future Music (August 2009)

The Opal's EX8 driver provides a raw response of 30Hz to 10kHz and a power handling of up to 1000 watts. A high powered neodymium motor provides 36mm of linear excursion to the bespoke high-strength glass fiber polyamide cone. Event's X-Coil technology dramatically increases the driver speed and control, lowering distortion to levels previously unavailable in its class, and providing defined and accurate mid range reproduction as well as powerful, high speed bass.

The ULD1 tweeter combines ultra light and rigid beryllium-copper with an extremely powerful neodymium motor to produce unbelievable high frequency clarity. It is mounted in the Opal's innovative high frequency waveguide, which has been designed not only to provide excellent stereo imaging and a wide soundstage, but also to enable users to remove and rotate it for accurate reproduction in horizontal mounting applications.

The Event Opal Monitor's cabinet is moulded from aluminium to provide strength and minimise resonance. Each surface is a combination of complex radii to eliminate any diffraction inside the cabinet. The front mounted ports incorporate a variable impedance design that completely remove any port noise, and does not rely on room acoustics unlike rear porting solutions.
