I began my listening tests with ‘Njotke’ from the CD Spes by the Norwegian amateur all-female choir Cantus and singer/keyboardist Frode Fjellheim… I know this track exceedingly well and I am not exaggerating when I say that the hair stood up on the back of my neck whilst listening to it through the Jones-Scanlon studio monitors. The level of detail that these monitors revealed in that recording went well beyond that of any other loudspeaker that I have heard it on before. Read More ►
The J-S monitors’ abilities in the bass end: fast, articulate, with superb depth and extension. Impressive though that was, what really struck home was just how capable these monitors are of resolving the detail not only of the various electronic synths and drum machines, but also of the reverb tails as they died away behind thunderous low bass notes.
To my ears, the Jones-Scanlon studio monitors deliver a fast, clean, articulate and superbly balanced performance that is characterised by a quite stunning ability to reproduce the detail inside a single track or a full mix. They are extremely revealing monitors.
Stunning levels of deftly delineated detail across the full frequency spectrum.
In the meantime, sending the review pair back is going to be a bit of a wrench.

“Working with my Jones-Scanlon Reds it’s as if a veil has been lifted from my listening experience. They present such fine detail in the production dialogue and the ADR that I edit, and with such clarity and depth, it feels as though my studio has instantly been turned up to eleven! Now I get to hear tracks in my own room the way I hear them on a big sound stage. Brilliant I tell you, just brilliant!”

“I knew I had to have them, the Jones-Scanlon Studio Monitors are hands down my new favorite monitors. After hearing these I tracked down the manufacturer unsolicited.”
~ Krish Sharma (Rolling Stones Recording Engineer)
I first used these speakers with the Rolling Stones, there is no more demanding a situation for a speaker than reproducing a Stones tracking session at volume. I usually would only do a tracking playback for these players on the large studio main speakers, but I happened to have the Jones-Scanlon’s on as the band and producer Don Was walked in and as they liked the sound I continued playback. We were so pleased that when we moved to another studio we kidnapped the speakers and brought them with us!
The Jones-Scanlon Studio Monitors are hands down my new favorite monitors. They are unicorns in that they not only are accurate both for frequency and transient response but they have punch and headroom to communicate raw takes with power. While being amazingly accurate, they do not sacrifice musicality.
Mixes come together very easily on the Jones-Scanlon Studio Monitors. I find myself needing to switch between speakers much less and I am able to balance very quickly because the speakers are accurate and musical at all volume levels. Working with the Rolling Stones, I need a speaker that can reproduce dense arrangements of stringed instruments accurately and without coloration and these achieve that goal effortlessly.
The Jones-Scanlon Studio Monitors have the detail and accuracy for low volume mixing and also the power to rock the house with musicality. They are a great studio solution and accomplish multiple roles without compromise.
After hearing these speakers quite by accident, I knew I had to have them. I tracked down the manufacturer unsolicited.Krish Sharma (Rolling Stones Recording Engineer)

Man these speakers should come with a warning! “Sound quality so good, you won’t be able to walk away from them!”
These Monitors are extremely accurate with a tight and well-defined bass and you can listen to them for hours with no fatigue and the sound quality is unmatched by any other speaker we have auditioned before.
The Jones-Scanlon studio monitors are unique, extraordinary and by far the best we’ve heard.Joseph And George Mothiba (REVOLUTION)

With my passion, years of experience as a pro bass player, writer, producer, solo artist & designer of the Wayne Jones Audio bass products. In conjunction with Steve Scanlon, Australia’s #1 award winning studio & live engineer & Michail Barabasz of Lorantz Audio with his years of speaker design & manufacturing we have designed the Jones/Scanlon Monitors.
Now you can enjoy them as much as we do.Wayne Jones
The Jones-Scanlon monitors are incredible! I was immediately blown away by the width and accuracy of the stereo imaging. It is hard to find clarity this good in any studio monitor, let alone at this price point!
At All Access Recording, our purple Jones-Scanlon monitors have consistently impressed our producers, engineers and clients, and are the centerpiece of our recording rig. Most importantly, mixing on them grants a confidence that our mixes translate to any other listening environment. People from all walks of life listen, and hear the proof. Musicians, engineers, fans, and critics alike all agree, “These speakers are amazing!” Clarity, detail, power and a bit of magic make these monitors the best we have ever heard. Thank you Wayne, for being so personable, friendly and involved in the process from day one.
Listening to these speakers made me realize that there was more to sound than I thought. I’ve mixed 90% of all of the work I’ve produced (Jennifer Hudson/Tito Jackson) and many more. I’ve never heard anything that even comes close to these!!! These are great for sound design, scoring, mixing, recording, and writing. All around great product!!! I’m truly grateful to have met Mr Jones and a huge thanks to Garrett Body.
Wayne and Steve have truly designed a great set of versatile studio monitors that add a level of depth to what you are able to hear in your tracks.Jeff Barnes

Why have a sports car when you can have Jones-Scanlon Monitors. The reverb tail is very impressive.Slavic Livins

Comments from Recording & Movie Studios in USA
"These monitors have the world’s next level in transients"
"I have never experienced anything like this before"
"The clarity & separation is incredible, I can focus on any Instrument clearly"
"I can hear things in the production that I never knew existed"
"Listen to the Reverb"
"I just can’t stop listening to them"
Undeniably Accurate, Faultless Frequency Reproduction, Incredible Depth, Clarity & Dimension.
You will hear Compression & Reverb tails more accurately than you have never heard before.
A whole new level of Transients, Clarity & Distinction.
All this at high & low listening levels.
Our first version intentionally had no DSP. This ensured the system and all components were doing exactly what they should from the source itself. Some companies use DSP to make up for the lack of what the source can’t produce, you can hear that. It simply doesn’t sound right and is misleading.
With the addition of DSP we have fine-tuned the original high praised system to perfection.
Finally, as an engineer, producer or artist your mixes can now be "undeniably accurate" and your work "more enjoyable". This will translate right down the line through to clients and end consumer.
Even when listening to recordings you know well, you will discover things you never knew existed until now.
The Jones Scanlon monitors, gives you a whole new listening experience, transporting you into the very essence of musical dimension.
