Review: M-Audio Studiophile AV 40
19 April 2010
Excerpt: You’re doing all of that music on your PC a disservice by attempting to filter sound through those coin-sized built-in fakers. A proper set of speakers won’t set you back a month’s rent and will have you rocking until the cops show up.
Pros: Peerless audio quality. Great value.Wake-the-neighbors loud. Magnetically shielded, so you won’t catch abuzz off your cell phone or mess with your laptop’s screen. Handy headphone jack lets you work musicians’ hours while housemates snooze.
Cons: With 6 x 7.25-inch footprints, they do take up room (and at 14 pounds a pair, you won’t be moving them around much).Backside power switch means you’re constantly doing a reach-around at bedtime.
Summary: The old version of the AV 40 to my understanding is not only ugly, but also not very good.
The new AV 40 (pictured above) is quite handsome and musical, not unlike myself.
Build is solid, fairly heavy for their size. Appear to be MDF construction.
Pros: Fun sound, more than enough volume,
Cons: Apartment Dwellers should consider the AV 30
