“With DT-5a monitors, …it sounds just right when the levels are right, almost like the speakers are mixing with you, lol ”
“Icon speakers are amazing! The DT Series speakers are the truth! I get to edit videos, listen to my music, mix my songs, and just vibe with a pure clean sound. My mixes are a lot better due to the built in limiter. …nice and clean when the mix is right, almost like the speakers are mixing with you” -Knotch
