This ad is for our last pair of brand new, sealed in box Neat Acoustics Momentum SX3i loudspeakers in a Satin White finish
The Momentum 3i Model has evolved over several generations with this SX3i model being the latest version of the Momentum stand mount monitor prior to being discontinued last year. (The Momentum Series is not being replaced and will be missed!)
Neat Acoustics has been hand crafting outstanding loudspeakers since 1989 in the Northeast of England. (Trivia: For those who may not know, NEAT actually stands for "Northeast Audio Traders") Their initial widely acclaimed success came with the original Neat Petite, Neat’s fantastic interpretation of the well known BBC LS3/5A studio monitor. More recently, many may know of Neat’s unique, ground breaking Iota Series of loudspeakers.
The Momentum series represents Neat’s unique approach to isobaric cabinet design. Few companies have been so dedicated to this approach over the past two decades. This design allows for nearly full range frequency response and outstanding bass in smaller packages than theoretical cabinet sizes would typically allow. Ultimately this approach combined with proprietary cabinet and porting designs results in a full frequency range as well as dynamic capabilities at all listening levels. (See cross section diagram)
Perhaps Neat Acoustics’ best known feature is their commitment to pace, rhythm, attack and timing (PRAT), along with an uncanny ability to recreate correct musical timbre. Further, while not the most efficient design, Neat speakers typically yield a benign (flat) impedance making them easy to drive with modest powered tube or solid state gear. The sound of SX3i’s is extremely open with a large image and palpable 3D sound stage.
The SX3i is a medium to large size monitor measuring 15 in. x 8.7 in. x 10.6 in. and weighing approximately 20 pounds (each). They are capable of significant output and can pressurize a surprisingly large room given adequate power.
