Great buy for the second hand price, but I wouldnt pay full retail price!
3 September 2012
Summary: I bought these because I wanted something more than your standard desktop computer speakers, and I also wanted something that would be more neutral sounding as to give a honest representation of what I was listening to. They do provide that and are plenty loud enough for my area of 10'x10'. I do wish I could pump up the volume a bit higher without losing clarity for those times I wish to really jam out, but they suffice all the same.
Summary: Great monitor speakers. I just got into recording guitar on my computer and these do a great job of monitoring while playing and play back. Very clean signal even at higher volumes. Only downside is the bass boost but that is arguable.
Summary: I'm a DJ and i wanted to use my mixer in a small area without the use of a amp and i wanted a good sound. well these speakers gave me just what i wanted . the sound is great, the price was great.. I had purchased some other speakers that cost more and i thought they would be better. but you can't even compare these to them the (M-Audio AV 40 system speakers out rank them by far. I recommed these to anyone thats looking for the same thing that i was.
Pros: Precise, accurate on orchestral instrumental sounds. No distortion but somewhat weak on base as would be expected with a two unit system.
Cons: After three years, left speaker failed. Based on other reviewers, this is not an isolated problem. It is difficult to find a speaker in this price range that has its qualities, but I will not purchase this brand again.
great sound and good buy great for small home studio

Summary: very good sound quality, I use these for producing music at home and they do the job well. You need to set them up properly in relation to where you are sitting regularly etc. There is information that comes with them about this. other then that i use them for all of my pc work be it games, music production and listening. I would recomend these to anyone looking for a great priced monitor setup.
