Summary: Would give these five stars but there is always a better (and likely very expensive) set of speakers out there. Also nothing beats a good sub in the mix. Not withstanding these are excellent (base very good too). I combined these with a DAC and I am thrilled. I got a rocking desk.
Summary: I have sold some of the very best in high end audio for many years. I also master music, so these are being used both for music enjoyment, and mastering. I needed a set of computer monitors that were reasonably small for a small computer desk so these fit perfectly and look great.
Summary: Good for computer audio with a decent DAC, but not as good as a good pair of studio monitors and amp. I had them hooked up to a VPI traveler in my study and enjoyed them quite a bit as near-field monitors.
Summary: These were purchased after returning a pair of B&W MM-1 speakers to a local retail store. The MM-1 sounded great, but what I had failed to notice in the store was the constant hissing (white noise) that they generated whenever powered on, regardless of source hook-up, even when no audio or USB input...
