We caught up with Jimmy on his experience using the iLoud Precision studio monitors. Here's The Senator's verdict on the new Precision MTMs:

I am floored by the huge sound, robust and powerful. A big grand-sounding monitor, radiating full spectrum awesomeness.

These are the real deal, transparent, and lightweight, but pack a heavyweight sonic sound.

The option to use various other tuned monitors puts them in a class all their very own.
