MAGNAT MONITOR REFERENCE 2A
Measuring just 175 mm wide and 290 mm high, the Monitor Reference 2A is slimmer than an A4 sheet of paper. Nevertheless, it still offers the full range of capabilities of the series. With an aptx® Bluetooth® input (version 5.0), HDMI® input with ARC capability, phono input and other analog and digital inputs, it quickly replaces a complete stereo system and, of course, also makes an excellent acoustic impression when used on a computer.
Compact, but with a sound of a much larger model
While it shares the 25 mm tweeter dome with its siblings, it claims the compact, but powerful, 125 mm bass-midrange driver for itself. This delves down to a frequency of 38 Hz, which should be more than ample in many cases.
At the other end of the frequency band it reaches 40,000 Hz. As a result, the Reference 2A can definitely be used for high-res material.
The amplifier that is integrated in the active speaker delivers 2 x 35 watts of continuous power (RMS) or 2 x 75 watts of peak power. The elaborately equipped crossover sorts the music signal at 3,500 Hz. Since both amplifiers are located in one speaker, you only need one socket for the power supply; the passive speaker is simply connected to the active unit using the supplied cable.
