Mesanovic is pleased to announce the release of three new products – a 3-way active DSP studio monitor, a small diaphragm condenser microphone, and an industrial grade isolation/dampening speaker platform. All three products are expected to be shipping in late August.
The RTM10 is Mesanovic’s first studio monitor and continues the company’s tradition of ribbon transducers. At the heart of the RTM10 is a true aluminum ribbon tweeter manufactured in-house. The tweeter uses some of the same design features found in Mesanovic’s ribbon microphones such as the use of a toroidal core step up transformer. The result is a tweeter with low distortion, incredibly fast transient response, and an effortless non-fatiguing sound. An extremely low distortion 5” aluminum cone woofer takes care of the mid-range and a 10” high excursion aluminum cone subwoofer for low-end duties. Hypex’s NCore Class D amplifiers power the RTM10 with a total of 650 Watts per speaker. A proprietary DSP tuning creates a flat response (31Hz-20kHz +/- 1.0dB, -3dB@28Hz) and perfect phase response. The RTM10 is an all-in-one mixing, mastering, and listening system. Its compact size and extended response eliminates the need for additional subwoofers or excessively large systems. When paired with Mesanovic’s Iso Platform the result is a world-class system that can be enjoyed in any studio set up or listening environment with accurate, reliable, and enjoyable results.

The SC1 is Mesanovic’s first small diaphragm condenser microphone. It features an interchangeable capsule system and comes with matching omni and cardioid capsules. The SC1 is a transformerless design that offers low self-noise, low distortion, fast transient response, and a natural sonic character. The SC1 is precision machined from stainless steel and manufactured in Mesanovic’s Detroit based facility. Each pair of capsules is matched for both sensitivity and frequency response in an ISO certified anechoic chamber. The SC1 works great for stereo recordings of drums, strings, orchestras, piano, and acoustic guitar. Its high SPL capability also makes it a great choice for snare drums, toms, and electric guitar cabinets.

The Iso Platform is an exclusive design offering the ultimate decoupling and dampening solution for your speaker set up in an industrial grade package. The platform achieves decoupling by using the speakers weight to specifically load the spring system and achieve a very low natural frequency. An ISODAMP™ sheet on the top plate provides decoupling for mid and high frequencies while dampening the steel structure. The Iso Platform allows your speakers to achieve maximum performance by removing any vibrations transmitted to your speaker stands, floors, and studio furniture. Unwanted distortion coming from your room is eliminated with the Iso Platform resulting in a clearer and deeper soundstage across the entire frequency spectrum. The bottom plate of the platform has two different bolt patterns so that you can mount them to Sound Anchor stands, specifically the ADJ1, ADJ2, and ADJ-27 stands. The Iso Platform can also be placed on any flat surface or floor. The platform is designed for speakers ranging from 40-110lbs. It is available in two versions: A universal top dampening sheet or a RTM10 dampening sheet.
