Excerpt: I’ve been using the M-Audio AV30 desktop monitors for a year or so now for video editing and just general desktop audio use. They are 15-watt powered monitors driving 3-inch woofers and 3/4-inch tweeters.
Excerpt: Sum n’ substance : Thumbs up :punchy lows, clear, crisp highs, dandy speakers for the price, classic design, not bulky. Thumbs down :Gets really hot in the back, a bit of a deep bass response, integrated amplifier isn’t that loud, also the power button is located awkwardly at the back.
Excerpt: Compared to the AV 40 which is priced at $150, its sibling has been priced $99. Also it does not have the same features but yeah obviously since its priced less u cant expect the same stuff from this one. This one resorts to using a cheaper amplifier in contrast to the class-A/B amp used in the AV 40. Also the AV 30 goes ahead with the RCA ins as compared to the studio-quality 1.25-inch TRS audio inputs of the Av 40.
