Wild & Marr congratulates Cristo Hattingh, owner of Sound GP on his recent purchase of serial #00001 and serial #00002 of JBL M2 Master Reference Monitors.

World-renowned seven-time Grammy award winning producer, engineer and mixer, Frank Fillipetti notes the JBL M2 Master Reference Monitors as “the JBL M2s are not evolutionary, they’re revolutionary.”

Having used other large-format studio monitors, in Hattingh’s opinion JBL’s patented-pending Image Control Waveguide, coupled with JBL’s patented low-distortion D2 high-frequency driver differentiates M2 from the rest.

Hattingh reflected briefly on the moments before he powered up his new monitors: “The JBL M2s remained in their box for a few weeks while the studio was being built, leaving me eagerly waiting in anticipation.”

“The moment I finally got them in the studio what surprised me the most was the sonic transparency throughout the volume change. The feeling that I got put into a single word “vindication”, it 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.” smiled Hattingh.

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 full frequency range with no issues at the low end. When I go up 2dB on my listening level, I don’t feel like I have to re-balance.” Hattingh noted. “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.” in Hattingh’s opinion.
