Showing 1-10 of 303
A pop, a puff of smoke, and no more speaker!
23 August 2015
Summary: I actually bought these several years ago when I thought I would be making music at home. Well, they ended up in a box for most of that time, until late last year when I decided to use them as music speakers on my desk. Things were going fine until today.
Summary: These sounded great for about a year. Then the amplifier started to go bad resulting in clipped sound which got progressively worse until they finally died. Buyer beware. These look and sound like a great deal until they deteriorate in front of your ears.
researched it on the internet and seems like a very common problem

Summary: Worked well for a while, then right speaker went out, very muffled sound... researched it on the internet and seems like a very common problem. For that reason I'm very unhappy with these speakers. Lasted barely over a year. Just google M-Audio AV30 speaker problem before you buy.
Summary: So far so good. These speakers have a great flat sound for audio MIXING and MASTERING. They can get louder than I thought from the reviews I've read. I'm in a full basement and these are perfect.
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.
Excellent, solid sounding speaker, especially in this price range!

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...
Summary: I am very pleased with these speakers. I purchase them to use for practicing Play-Along CD's with my Saxophone. They are loud enough and clear enough to hear the background music with no issues at all. Small but very good speakers for the price.
Summary: I read all the reviews and knew I was in for a gamble when I bought these, but I figured the price made it worth it. Even with the two-year warranty at $11 these seemed like a great bang for my buck, so I crossed my fingers and hoped I'd get a good pair.
