How do you build an incredible small studio monitor? Easy – use a shrink ray on Eddie. Well, not quite but that’s essentially what we did. Ruby has a smaller version of the Strat F1 planar called the model F2. The mid-bass driver is a tad smaller at 5″. And while the cabinet is an eighth of the size, it’s surprisingly sturdy for its size!

But that was just the beginning. Ruby had some small shoes that Eddie had to fit in. With the same quality in drivers, cabinet engineering and crossover design – would the goal be achieved? The simple answer is yes. The extended frequency response covers everything but the very lowest of octaves. Imaging, dynamic headroom and virtually no distortion literally make Ruby disappear.

When comparing Eddie and Ruby most of the range has the same quality DNA. Yes, the mid-bass crossover is higher – but not in such a way that it takes away from the music. One pair with or without a subwoofer will perform unlike anything else in its’ class or price range. And in a home theater with a subwoofer, whether 5.1 or full blown ATMOS, be prepared. Ruby will exceed the performance of virtually any product to many times its’ price! 

 

When we set out to build a small monitor, compromise was not on our minds. But how to match the DNA of the Strat F1 planar? The solution was to build a smaller version, the Strat F2 planar! While not as large as its’ bigger brother, it shares all the robust construction and technology of the Strat F1. The end result is the same dynamics, imaging, lack of distortion and 30 Khz capability.

We took the same approach with the woofer creating the RM5. While a sibling of the RM7 it has no technological limitations. This is not a typical small monitor woofer. It has a cast frame, advanced components and high performance to match.

placement

Ruby is easy to place. First, she is front ported. So you can place her in a cabinet or up against a back wall.
Second, she has 75 mm x 75 mm universal VESA receiver nuts on her back.
What that means is that you can buy any VESA compatible bracket that will
support her weight and then mount her on walls and/or ceilings! 
That makes her perfect for 5.1, 7.1 or full ATMOS placements!

The Absolute Sound Names EDDIE Best of Show

A number of editors from the top audiophile magazines auditioned EDDIE at T.H.E. Show in Newport Beach the first week of June. Here is the first reaction to EDDIE.

“The Eddie speaker from a new speaker company called Evoke caught my ear for its tremendous price-to-performance ratio. The $3995-per-pair Eddie features a ribbon tweeter, planar-magnetic midrange, and a cone woofer. Driven by NuPrime electronics, it sounded clean, fast, and transparent—and like it should cost much more than $4k.” [Read more…]

“I am awed by the music…”

Comments from a new EDDIE owner: “I chose your setup recommendation and … went back to my 45 Hz subwoofer setting. I also raised the height of my listening position to be level with the planar midrange drivers. I made minor adjustments to the midrange and treble controls to balance the sound (nice attenuators!).

I’m hearing life sized instruments and voices. It’s like my much valued, huge soundstage disappeared to be replaced by musicians and their instruments. [Read more…]

WOW Says New Owner of EDDIE

I just got the EDDIE speakers. I am running them in class A mode up to 35 watts (I haven’t used more than 10 watts so far). The speakers are efficient. The EDDIE’s are wired with Nordost flat speaker wire with banana plugs. I left the mid and tweeter settings at your recommended 10 o’clock positions.

The EDDIE speakers are currently crossing over to a pair 8″ Eton Hexacone mid bass/bass drivers that are mounted in a fairly large, custom, semi-aperiodic sealed dual chamber enclosure of my design. The Etons run with no low pass filter. I use a Martin Logan servo controlled 10″ aluminum coned subwoofer below 45 Hz. [Read more…]

OF NOTE … Dolby publishes a professional document with specifications for ATMOS theaters. It is a very interesting read. Granted none of use will typically have a large theater ourselves, but the information is very educational. CLICK HERE to view the document.
