    Comments about Blue Sky International ProDesk 2.1 Full-Range Desktop Monitoring System:

    I wanted a high quality speaker system for my Imac. Boy, did I get it! My system is used strictly for pleasure listening, not for audio mixing (Though I see why it is popular for that task) The reproduction is astounding. The highs are crisp and the bass is not muddy. I have enough volume to blow the roof off of the house and the system doesn't falter, doesn't miss a beat. For my application I can not fault them at all, they are heavy, quality pieces with a two year guarantee. I highly recommend them.

    Comments about Blue Sky International ProDesk 2.1 Full-Range Desktop Monitoring System:

    While reviewing various monitors for our post-production suite I tested and reviewed many systems not limited to but including Genelec, JBL, Mackie etc. Most of these systems were attempting to provide all the sound you need to hear from just a matched stereo pair. While most of these brands do a great job, they just don't compare to the accuracy of the Blue Sky systems.

    Like most, I had always been under the assumption that the ".1" systems, whether it was 2.1, 5.1 etc were really designed for home-theater use, not professional-grade monitoring for post production. Boy was I wrong.

    Turns out places like SkyWalker Sound, ShapeShifter, THX and other actually prefer the ".1" systems for a good reason: you need to isolate the low-end frequencies to make the mids and highs more accurate.

    The Blue Sky ProDesk 2.1 is in my estimation the best sounding, most sonically accurate system I've ever heard for this price range. In fact, the only system I've heard that is significantly more accurate costs about $10k - and it's also by Blue Sky!

    Once you learn and understand how to properly setup a 2.1 system and, hear the results on the ProDesk you'll wonder why you hadn't done it before.

    Highest possible rating - 5 Stars.
