The best budget monitors around

  • Excerpt: These monitors are abit excitable in the lower end frequencies and plugging up the bass ports overheats the units. There are no Eq settings on the back of the units, only a volume gain knob which is also very sensitive and is hard to be sure if you have set them both up evenly. That being said, i have yet to a find any monitors that produce a better sound at this price. I use these monitors with my imac and logic pro and they reveal everything in a mix to me.

  • Excerpt: I bought a pair of these for my music room as I needed a pair of active monitors for my home studio. Good reference speakers are essential for any home studio and these had got some good reviews. I was not disappointed. They are mounted on wall brackets at ear level, and the fact they are bi wired makes for excellent audio separation.

  • Excerpt: I have been working in the audio industry for around seven years now and have been lucky enough to try out various monitors. I first tested these monitors at a local studio while testing a Korg Triton, i used these monitors in conjuction with the the Alesis IO2 USB audio interface. My first impression of these monitors was somewhat unimpressive, the size is small, they arent the most attractive monitors in the world, but when these were powerd up and i started to put...

  • Excerpt: I have had these speakers for about 12 months now and i am very impressed by them.They take about 20hrs or so of use to run them in.The sound quality is fantastic for the price, i am using them in my home studio for producing music.They are very well built and good looking.They are active monitors which means the amp is built into the speaker which saves having to wire them up to an amp,they just plug straight in to my mixing desk.

  • Excerpt: I have been working with audio editing for around 5 years now, when i started i began with a pair of basic edirol monitors, despite being classed as monitors these were actually just 'better sounding hi-fi speakers' so as i began to work on more serious projects and reading about how a studio works it was quickly apparent to me that i was going to need to invest in a new pair of actual studio monitors.

  • Excerpt: I bought these to use while practicing DJing, but to be honest they are the best all round method of "noise production" I have ever used. Superb as monitors with excellent sound quality, but just as good as powered speakers for small parties etc. I have had these for about a year now and have no complaints whatsoever.
  • Pros: Superb sound reproduction, Build quality, Price, LOUD !
  • Cons: None really .  .  .  they are pretty heavy though

Volle Dröhnung am PC!

  • Summary: Vorgeschichte =========== Als ich meinen Rechner vor 2 1/2 Jahren erstand, kaufte ich ein Paar Miniboxen für sage und schreibe 6 Euro 95 mit. Der Sound war natürlich unterirdisch. Wie fleißige Leser meiner Berichte wissen, beschäftige ich mich gerne mit Musik und sonem Zeugs. Ich mußt da jetzt mal etwas Schleichwerbung für meine ciao-Berichte über mein Yamaha-Keyboard und meine Audioschnittstelle Tascam US122 machen, die ihr bitte gleich im Anschluß fleißig durchlesen...
  • Pros: klares, transparentes Klangbild
  • Cons: Platzbedarf  größer als bei normalen PC - Lautsprechern
