Great pair of desktop speakers

Renee D. Turner "renee the produca", Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Great pair of desktop speakers. They produce a perfect balance of clear, crisp sound. No matter how high I turn them up, they never sound over modulated. The only problem is that the sound doesn't get quite as loud as I'd like. I'm sure my neighbors appreciate that, though. Overall, I love the warm, rich sound these speakers produce.

Best pair of desktop speaker I've ever owned

M_atty, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm not an audiophile but I've owned a lot of speakers of various configurations, sizes and power. Most of them were adequate, some were good but none of them were the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40. For reference, I'm an avid PC gamer that doesn't have space for surround sound. I enjoy all sorts of music at all volume levels and appreciate high fidelity but don't demand perfection. I watch TV and movies in the living room where I already have a decent sound bar.

Small, Accurate, and Crystal Clear, This will bring new life to your music!

Karen Marie Kreider, Amazon

  • Summary: I Upgraded from my old setup which was a SONY-MHC EC55, these are pretty old speakers and they packed a punch but they were big and bulky and distorted most of my music at times, but as soon as I unboxed these and hooked them up, (extremely easy to set up) They sounded amazing! they really control my small room.

Amazing speakers with a few drawbacks

Colin, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: So I'll start by saying that these studio monitors sound amazing. They produce frequencies of sound that I did not know were present in the music and sounds I was hearing until I played them through these speakers. The bass is full and deep. The middles and highs are crisp and clear. They just sound amazing. Great for entertainment and gaming. Great for music.

A love affair that couldn't last...

Sir Real "S.R.", Amazon
5 August 2014
  • 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. Very disappointed these aren't built to last even a couple years longer, and would have preferred to leave a favorable review. Sadly these were only lightly used at moderate volume levels. I can't even claim they were ruined being over driven at a party!!

Great for regular use, but not for music producing

Natanel Arnson, Amazon
4 August 2014
  • Summary: These have served me well for the year and a half i've been using them. If you're looking for speakers for regular use and computer audio they're great. However if you're a music producer, you might find that they are not really what you need. They're mostly lacking in the low end, only "4 woofers, so can't really reprocduce the lower freq. I'd recommend upgrading to at least $300-$400 monitors, like the Behringer Truth or the like, which is what i'm about to switch too.

Compact, accurate & a great deal

P.K. Frary "Gochugogi", Amazon
1 August 2014
  • Summary: The AV 40 has a sonic signature similar to the larger M-Audio BX5: neutral and balanced but with less power and bass reach. Compared to typical computer speakers, the AV 40 are a little understated but that's because they lack bass bloat and exaggerated highs. The even keeled tonal signature is designed for accuracy but is still pleasing and easy to listen to for hours. These monitors are powered with a single stereo amplifier on the left monitor.

Excellent, solid sounding speaker, especially in this price range!

Mark A Schneider, Amazon
25 July 2014
  • Summary: If you're looking for a solid audio upgrade for your computer speakers, these are an excellent choice (especially in this price range). They are well built with separate audiophile quality tweeters and mid-range 4" cones, and have plenty of clean power to run loud enough to enjoy in a large room and/or several small rooms. After spending a little time tweaking my equalizer (iTunes), they really sing quite nicely (final equalizer settings listed below).

Dissatisfied customer

Aakeem, Amazon

  • Summary: One star amounts for how many months before the speakers malfunctioned. For some odd reason my brand new speakers will not powe on. I only use them to produce music. I have not stressed them in any way I barely played them beyond optimal levels, my landlord lives above me. if any has delt with this issue before reply to this post.
