Summary: I got SCREWED! This was used equipment that did not work but it said it was new when I purchased it. This really messed up my son's birthday and I paid for overnight shipping. Total B.S.!!! Never again! See the photo: This was my first time opening it. Nothing was covered wires were out and missing.
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.
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.
Don't waste your money! Here's something way better for a similar price.

Summary: This is the second pair of consumer-grade powered M-Audio desktop monitors I've owned in less than 4 years. The amp inside the first pair died after only 1 year, and the amp inside this pair also died after 3 years.
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.
Literally burned up after warranty expired...poor customer service!!!

Summary: I liked the sound produced by these speakers, but one night shortly over a year after purchasing them, they went up in a pop and smoke. Dealing with M-Audio customer support (AVID) was a nightmare and they made me jump through all sorts of hoops.
Summary: For all intensive purposes, these are good sounding speakers. They're well balanced, not super punchy on the bass, and are reasonably accurate for the casual ear. It's nice to have headphone outputs for times you want to keep the music down if someone else in the room doesn't want to listen to what...
