LD 3B REFTONE Ref Cube Reference Speakers 400pxBased on the original passive Ref-Cubes, the new LD-3B speakers have the same Reftone reference sound and now the added convenience of power and Bluetooth technology. The LD-3B reference speakers are tools to stay ahead of the curve, as the “Bluetooth Mix Check” has already become a standard studio protocol. Reftone has the first studio-quality Bluetooth reference speakers on the market.

Grammy Award-winning Producer/Engineer Neal Pogue says, “I use my Reftone Bluetooth speakers in the most strange, unique way. Once I’ve completed a mix, I like to place them behind me when I’m listening back. The LD-3B Ref-Cubes are perfect for that because I trust the Reftone sound.”
