A love affair that couldn't last...

Summary: Loved these speakers so much, I bought a second pair after the first set died (I should have known better). This 2nd set now has problems with the left speaker starting to go after roughly two years.
Summary: Awesome sound. Problem is the system started delivering distorted sound after a period of time. Would like to buy these again for the sound but cannot recommended purchasing as they don't last long and there is no affordable repair option.
Summary: My use for speakers is video editing audio monitoring. These speakers simply had too much base. I tried adjusting settings on computer and physical location of speaker with no improvement. I believe there was some defect with the product because co-workers used them with success.
Summary: I got a pair of AV40 that says "latest version". The features are great, price was ok, but it sounded terrible. There was this "boxy" mids and "tinny" highs that drives me up the wall. After 2 days I couldn't stand it any more.
Summary: They worked great for a couple months . I had a set before of the predecessor that had a left speaker problem. I was hoping these wouldn't do the same thing. Only the right one works. It seems to be a common problem. If you only need one speaker then these are fantastic.
Summary: I purchased a pair of these speakers due to the positive reviews and it was a lightening deal. Seemed like a great deal but now they are going back to Amazon. Within a few days of use they started to "POP!" loudly when I turned them off. Happened once here and there, then more regularly.
Great sound quality, but the right speaker broke in about a year.

Summary: I'm using these as computer speakers for Pandora, mp3s and DAW software; and I am enjoying the sound quality. For the sake of informing potential buyers, I'll say: With a 'normal' at home computer set-up, these are very large compared to 'normal' computer speakers, so keep that in mind.
Summary: For reference speakers, these sound very good for the price. You won't find any cheaper. But buyer beware. First off I had to send them back when I first bought them because of an issue with the headphone jack not silencing the speakers. Then they worked like a charm for about one year.
Summary: My wife and I both teach music for a living, and we use our computer speakers quite often. I bought these for my wife for her Suzuki violin studio, for use with SmartMusic. The first set didn't work; I don't remember the issue, but I believe they just didn't power on.
Summary: I was very happy with the size and quality of these speakers. I couldn't turn the sound all the way up or they got background static, but still ... I was very satisfied. Until the left speaker quit working and I discovered that the back was extremely hot.
