South Africa:

Sound GP owner Cristo Hattingh has become the first-ever owner of JBL Professional’s Frank Fillipetti-approved M2 Master Reference Monitors, purchased via Wild & Marr. According to Hattingh, who has used a variety of large-format studio monitors in the past, the M2’s Image Control Waveguide coupled with JBL’s D2 high-frequency driver differentiates it from the pack.

Hattingh’s new M2 monitors are branded serial #00001 and serial #00002. ‘The JBL M2s remained in their box for a few weeks while the studio was being built, leaving me eagerly waiting in anticipation,’ he recalled. ‘What surprised me the most when I finally got them in the studio was the sonic transparency throughout the volume change. The feeling that I got can be summed up in a single word: vindication’. The M2 is everything that I thought it would be. It gives me a true reflection of the sonics, and I can listen for five to six hours at a low volume in a single sitting.’

Hattingh works on a plethora of post-production large and small format content for broadcast environments. ‘I can sit at 85dB SPL and I still have the full frequency range with no issues at the low end,’ the Sound GP owner added. ‘When I go up 2dB on my listening level, I don’t feel like I have to re-balance. I can trust that what I’m hearing on the M2s will come out contextually to what people at home watching a broadcast would hear.’
