Good speakers for at-home keyboard

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these speakers to replace a bulky Peavey amplifier for home use only. I also purchased a Yamaha BMS10A microphone stand adapter for each speaker in order to support them above the keyboard at ear level. I'm very happy with the resulting keyboard sound.

Simple, correct, studio monitor

John Bowler, Amazon
17 November 2015
  • Summary: I run three of these out of my (somewhat ancient) Proceed preamp. They just work. I can just set the controls to match the Proceed (THX) settings and that is it.

Very good sound

Alexander N, Amazon

  • Summary: I like these very much. Powerful and flat monitors. For the price range you can't go wrong. Very clear sound across the spectrum. You would need a sub for this set if you are interested in ultra low frequencies.

Robert M., Amazon
28 July 2015
  • Summary: This is not a typical bookshelf speaker. Neither is it properly referred to as being a loudspeaker. It is a piece of pro audio gear designed to be used in a recording or production studio.

I wasn't that impressed at first....now I can't imagine my studio without them

Dan Scheffler, Amazon
23 February 2015
  • Summary: This monitors are so clear and articulate. I recently upgraded from a pair of KRK Rockit's and at first, I wasn't that impressed but it's a subtlty that you notice like upgrading a car. You first notice a slight difference, but when you go back to the old product you then notice a vast difference.

NOT A "SYSTEM" -- ONE SPEAKER ONLY

Russell Weaver, Amazon
19 August 2014
  • Summary: I should have read the reviews more closely before purchasing this. This is for one speaker. The title is misleading. One speaker does not qualify as a "system". The title needs to state that the purchase is for one speaker only. Not a system.
