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.
Summary: The power speaker was a problem from day one.....giving an audible feedback noise. I continued using the one none powered speaker that offered pretty fair sound for one speaker...that speaker is no longer producing any sound. I suggest that these speakers are capable of producing quality sound but inconsistent quality control manufacturing can produce an occasional inferior product. Too bad.
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. I carefully unboxed these things last night and felt something sliding around loose in the right speaker.
Summary: While they worked they sounded larger than they look with a big bottom end (just how I like it), lush, flattering and non-specific; basically, a shameless representation of the major qualities that a "studio monitor" strives to avoid. As a failing, their gossamer lack of detail was eclipsed only by the inexplicable silence that accompanied their sudden, complete demise.
Summary: Sound quality was great when they worked, but I'm not an audiophile by any means. These were my first "real speakers" after having cheap logitechs throughout high school and college. I did research for about 2 weeks before I decided on these speakers. I really liked the price point for what they offered. I never had issues with the sound quality despite having them slightly below ear level.
Summary: *This is my second M-Audio product. First one was an AV30 from Amazon 3 years ago. This is the old model with the bass boost switch. *From what I understand, the first version was known to be faulty due to overheating issues. *I was initially satisfied and they lasted about two years before the left speaker gave out and sound only came out of the right speaker. *The sound on the speakers are actually really good and I decided to take a gamble and get the AV40 off Amazon.
Summary: Had these speakers hooked up to my computer and turntable. They worked great for about five months. They died pretty shortly thereafter. I did not use them too much, once a week or so for a couple of hours. I went to M-Audio's website to see if they could be fixed or what not, there I found at least a couple dozen other people with the same issue, no music only a crackling sound (or nothing).
