Introducing Kii THREE Pro: “One of the finest speakers ever heard”
Kii Audio are excited to announce the arrival of the first ‘mini main monitor system’ on the market. Designed to deal with the real acoustic challenges of the modern studio, the remarkable Kii THREE Pro studio monitors have been described by Sound On Sound reviewer Phil Ward as “one of the finest speakers I’ve ever heard and undoubtedly the best I’ve ever had the privilege and pleasure of using in my own home.”
Kii THREE Pro - the compact monitor you’ve been waiting for
The Kii THREE Pro provides unrivalled speaker performance in a compact package, achieved through Active Wave Focusing technology, controlling the sound dispersion and directing the sound exactly where you want it.
This perfect small-scale speaker offers a linear frequency response, and faultless impulse response and phase coherence; sharing 1.500 watts per speaker divided across six drivers into a compact and lightweight enclosure.
Intelligent DSP processing provides the Kii THREE Pro with a cardioid sound dispersion pattern down to the low-mid and bass frequencies, which otherwise can only be achieved by wide baffles, big cabinets or soffit mounting speakers (infinite baffle design). In studios with less than perfect acoustics, this offers a degree of performance monitoring you’ve never experienced before.
Full impact in a smaller package
No other speaker manufacturer has managed to capture the feel and impact of a big main monitor system in this way, condensing it into a small compact body that will fit anywhere; and looks rather beautiful too.
Kii THREE Pro is the one and only monitor solution you’ll need for every task. It’s the first ‘Mini Main monitor system’ on the market, and will be available to ship from today.
Alongside the Kii THREE Pro, Kii Audio have developed Kii CONTROL,transforming the Kii THREE into a complete reproduction system of the highest sonic quality and usability.
Kii CONTROL offers three additional inputs: Coax SPDIF, Optical TOSLINK and USB (up to PCM 24/384kHz and DSD64/DSD128 on USB). Easy to connect and use, simply activate the inputs with touch switches around the volume knob, and change effortlessly to the existing hardware input on the speaker itself, either as analog or digital input. The Kii CONTROL is connected and powered through the included CAT6 cable, so no additional power supply is necessary, and it also boasts lossless volume control, mute and dim functions, latency switching, user-preset options, and a range of advanced settings accessed via the OLED display.

About Kii Audio
With the invention of UcD and Ncore, Kii Audio’s Bruno Putzeys is probably single-handedly responsible for turning class-D amplification into the preferred way of building high-end audio amplifiers. His designs are displacing class-A and valve amplifiers across the industry, making truly audiophile performance available in very compact, energy-efficient products.
In 2010 he delivered a shot across the bow of high-end loudspeaker design. His Grimm Audio LS1 was hailed by reviewers as the best hi-fi speaker to date. With the foundation of Kii Audio in 2014 he has turned his full attention to loudspeakers with the intention to revolutionize them in the same way as he did amplifiers.
