LAS VEGAS�Transaudio Group is going retro at AES, as it will showcase Auratrone Sound Cubes, reference monitors that represent mixes on small-format, zero-crossover loudspeakers that were developed by Jack Wilson back in 1958.
Using components from contemporary suppliers, Auratone � currently run by Jack Wilson�s grandson, Alex Jacobsen, shown at right � is building modern 5C Super Sound Cube reference monitors that are able to mark imperfect part of mixes similar to the original model. Auratone is selling the Sound Cubes at $350 a pair.
The 139th AES Convention will take place in New York from Oct. 29-Nov. 1. Transaudio will be located at booth 935.
