In a striking example of 'old meets new', Fostex have updated their classic 6301 active monitor — a perennial favourite single-driver reference speaker, and a 35-year-old design — with bang up-to-date Dante connectivity.
The new 6301DT looks identical to the original, but for the RJ45 Ethernet port round the back. This digital input works at all the common sample rates up to 96kHz, and you can tell the speaker to listen to either the left, right or mono-summed signal from a stereo feed. A TRS jack is also present for mono analogue signals.
The Fostex 6301DT will be available soon, and is priced at $399.99.
