Excerpt: I really do know good sound. I work at a studio in Mass. working with really great artists and projects. We have a Neve board and some super nice monitors. Going to Berklee, I know my way around nice studio monitors. These are not for pro use. These are not for home studios even, if you can afford better. These are fun, decent sounding monitors. I first bought these in my first semester at Berklee, and they were half off. It was a steal.
Excerpt: I have had these monitors for 3 years, I am a music producer.. I sell beats online all the time get great mixes never had it sound bad in other listening environments or on other speakers, sounds good from my tv to my phone and everywhere in between..You gotta learn to use them, you will get use to the way they sound and how they translate onto other systems, use sound proofing position them right for your room and you should be good.
Excerpt: Really I don't have anything good to say about these other then they turn on, play audio, and give you an idea of how your mix will translate through horrible transducers. I currently mix on B1030A's and love them. I ONLY bought these to reference my mix through a very low quality monitor to help me understand how it may translate in the worst situation. If you mix with these you aren't getting an accurate representation of what you're really doing to your audio.
Pros: Pros, Acceptable Stereo Image
Cons: Cons, Limited Functions, Not Great For Mixing, Poor Frequencie Response, Poor Sound Quality
Excerpt: (1 items) Over the past few weeks, we’ve reviewed a series of 2.0 computer speakers —systems that comprise compact, powered left and right speakers. In those reviews, we’ve noted that compared to 2.1 systems—which use even smaller left and right satellites for higher frequencies plus a larger subwoofer/amplifier component that sits under your desk and produces lower frequencies—a 2.0 system takes up considerably less room but typically can’t provide similar bass...
M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Desktop Speaker System Review
30 June 2008
Conclusion: I cannot say enough about the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Desktop Speaker System. They are a wonderfully balanced speaker system in all regards. These speakers literally make you taste what you hear. Since 2003, I’ve never given an Editor’s Choice Award to an audio system. However, the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Desktop Speaker System has exceeded all my expectations in order to achieve this award.
Pros: Great dynamics and overall sound, Great MDF construction, Good bass, Balanced sound, You can taste the sound
Excerpt: Considering their $200 price tag, it’s amazing to see how many professional features M-Audio’s Studiophile AV 40 reference monitors are packed with, including 1/4-inch balanced inputs that can accommodate long cable runs. But you know the company had to make some compromises—and we found out where the moment we turned the speakers on.
Conclusion: Judging by our readings, the frequency range of the speaker is 85 Hz - 30 kHz with ±4 dB bandpass flatness. The Studiophile AV40 specs mention the 85 Hz - 20 kHz range. As we can see, the bottom limit agrees with the specifications. Unfortunately, the specs do not include irregularity of the frequency response. However, our readings demonstrate good results, even though these are budget speakers.
