Hollywood, Florida, January 17th — KRK Systems is proud to announce the release of the Expose E8B studio monitor at NAMM. KRK’s Expose series has long been considered the pinnacle of excellence in the recording industry. The new E8B monitor carries the legacy of KRK’s Expose line to new heights. The new E8B utilizes state-of-the-art components to help achieve clarity and sonic accuracy that improves on the original and creates a monitor that is the best in the business. Whether it is the Expose beryllium/aluminum tweeter (AlbeMet) that provides smooth, lightning fast transient response or the implementation of dual discrete class A/AB amplifiers to achieve incredible detail or the striking curved cabinet which reduces diffraction, the E8B has distanced the Expose line from the competition.
KRK engineers have incorporated feedback from the recording industry’s most well regarded professionals in the design of the E8B. This process has paved the way for the creation of one of the most accurate, transparent and “truthful” monitor on the market. The Expose has been designed to be linear and as flat as technically possible so that what you hear reflects the true nature of the audio material. KRK Engineers have also taken measures to significantly reduce distortion through the implementation of design concepts that reduce port turbulence and diffraction.
“It was important for us to integrate the feedback of the most important engineers and producers into the design of the next monitor in the industry renowned Expose line” commented Mike Newman, KRK System’s Product Manager. “It’s amazing to me how our engineers were able to improve a monitor that was already considered to be amongst the finest in the world. The E8B is true to the KRK legacy by setting the price and performance standards that are difficult to compete against.
The E8B features a tweeter made of AlBeMet, a composite material comprised of beryllium and aluminum. The advantage of using beryllium over the more conventional titanium tweeter is that beryllium is stiffer, resulting in frequency response extension, thus increasing the overall bandwidth of the monitor.
The woofer inside the E8B consists of two layers of Kevlar with a layer of Rohacell in between. The layer of Rohacell provides additional stiffness for the woofer and also functions as a dampener to eliminate unwanted resonances. The E8B copper pole cap and the aluminum shorting ring reduce motor induced distortions to an amazingly low level. The woofer’s multi-layered construction also reduces distortion for improved reproduction accuracy.
KRK’s Expose E8B utilizes two discrete, Class A / AB power amplifiers, 120w for the tweeter and 140w for the woofer. This is a bi-amplified system–one amplifier each for HF and LF–with symmetrical heat sinks built into the sides for cool running, reliable operation.
All of these superior components are housed in an enclosure that is every bit as functional as it is beautiful. The cabinet’s rigidity is an integral part of a speaker’s performance characteristic; the E8B cabinet is designed with thick, non-parallel, internal walls which reduce the chances of standing waves inside the cabinet. The base of the monitor is made from a non-slip, sound absorbing rubberized material that eliminates vibrations transferring to the surface the monitor is resting on, ensuring the E8B will not move on its pedestal. Further, the E8B is video shielded to guarantee maximum protection against magnetic interference with video monitors.
The new KRK Systems Expose E8B monitor in available now and has a suggested retail price of $5,995 a pair.

About KRK Systems
A member of the Stanton Group of companies, KRK Systems is a leader in studio monitors for the professional audio market. KRK Systems was founded in 1986, by Keith Klawitter. He had been an engineer for years working on such films as “Brainstorm” and “The Doors”. Frustrated by the fact he couldn’t find a monitor that gave him clarity and accuracy, he began building his own monitors. Other engineers and producers began to take notice of Keith’s high-end studio monitors, a groundswell began and a company was born. They also began commissioning him to build custom main systems as well. We attribute this remarkable beginning to Keith’s affinity for electronics, his passion for music, and his originality and insight.
KRK products are distributed throughout the world via a network of distributors and dealers in more than 75 countries. For additional information on all KRK Systems products, please visit us online at www.krksys.com.
