Blue Sky''s new Exo ($399) system is now shipping.
The Exo is a full-range, stereo monitoring system consisting of an 8-inch powered subwoofer, which also contains the amplifiers and bass management circuitry for the system; left and right two-way satellite speakers; and a desktop remote hub that allows you to simultaneously plug in and monitor an assortment of peripherals via the XLR, TRS, RCA, and 3.5 mm minijack inputs.
For example, you can connect a computer, an MP3 player, or a mixer, and monitor all three sources at the same time. In addition, you can control the gain of the system and dial in the subwoofer level, all without needing to crawl around under a desk. The hub also incorporates a 3.5 mm headphone jack, which mutes the monitoring system.
