Ocean Way Audio HR4 Studio Monitors

Ocean Way Audio introduced 2 new monitors at AES 2015 but the one that caught my attention is the HR4 Studio Monitor. I've heard their bigger brother the HR2 at Noisematch Studios in Miami and they sound amazing. 

They have a very wide sweet spot, excellent imaging and exceptional transient response.

From the press release:
"Based on the legendary sonic performance of the Ocean Way HR2 speaker, the HR4 is a two-way, self-powered monitor that is at home on a consoles meter bridge or free-standing speaker stands. “We’ve captured the sonic performance of our large horn-based wave guide design, which delivers 100 degree dispersion, and have released this unique speaker in a 24-inch mixing-board-friendly design!” states Allen Sides, OWA Founder and CEO." 

Here's a video by Sound on Sound at AES 2015 with Allen Sides himself explaining the design features and sound of the HR4:
