Power sav­ing

Future Music - - REVIEWS -

Just like Fo­cal’s Trio6 Be mon­i­tor, the Shapes fea­ture an au­to­matic by­pass func­tion. If no sig­nal passes through them for 30 min­utes, the green light on the front turns red, and the speak­ers put them­selves into ‘by­pass’ mode, in­di­cated by a firm click sound. It’s a neat power-sav­ing idea in the­ory, but proves an­noy­ing in prac­tice, as that two or three se­cond wait for au­dio when you hit play again is a bit of a pain – and if you’re used to mon­i­tor­ing qui­etly, you may need to turn up your lev­els a bit more be­fore sound comes back on. It’d be nice if there was a way to turn this mode on or off.
