Auratone 5C Pair

5C Super Sound Cube

There is a reason why the Auratone 5C Super Sound Cube is a 2016 inductee into the TECnology Hall of Fame!

There was always something about Auratone speakers that made them easy to listen to, mix on, and made them translate to just about any small radio or TV speaker on the planet. When they ceased manufacturing, a hole was left in the market that some have tried, but none have been able to fill. Today, Jack’s grandson has decided to take up the Auratone banner again, finding modern manufacturing techniques and new sources to have just what was needed to create the classic sound again.

After lengthy testing and re-manufacturing their driver, Auratone finally were able to achieve the purest sound equaling the sound of the original 5C Super Sound Cube.  All components of the driver are made of the highest quality materials here in the United States.  The cabinet is built with black laminate surround, black laminate front and back, and quality craftsmanship here in their Nashville shop.

The 5C, which became famous in the 1970’s and 80’s and has been used in virtually every major recording studio worldwide, is still the undisputed industry standard for “real world” referencing in the recording studio.

Durability, flat full-range response, amazing power handling and portability have made AURATONES the Recording, Broadcasting, and Motion Picture industries favorite “mixdown monitors.” . . . for comparison and final mixes, auditioning, remotes, and reference standard speakers.
