Good, but maybe not for the casual user

Jon Konrath, Amazon
9 April 2011
  • Summary: I'm not an audiophile. I don't mix music. I'm just a computer user that likes tunes and spends all day at the idiot box, so I wanted something that would sound better than my Best Buy econojunk computer speakers, but I didn't want to drag an entire home stereo setup to my office.

Not a pro solution.

  • Summary: I'm by no means a 'true' audiophile, but I am a music producer that knows how to use monitors in my workflow. Let me make this clear. These WILL make your music sound good. Real good... As a producer, that's a problem.

Love/Hate Relationship

N. Linerode, Amazon
11 October 2010
  • Summary: (As a foreword, I never write a review on something unless I have owned it for an extended time. I purchased these monitors in November of 2009, and am now writing this review. Hope this sets the scope.) When I first listened to music through studio monitors, I was blown away.

Lush sound - but the amp can be a buzz kill

D. Rozell, Amazon
12 August 2010
  • Summary: These speakers sound great right out of the box. For the money, it would be hard to find something that sounds as full and detailed. However, The speakers do have two flaws: 1 - minor issue - they are rather big for desktop speakers 2 - major issue - the amp buzzes on some sets.

Good, but subwoofer needed

J. Kohn, Amazon
4 August 2010
  • Summary: These speakers will be a big step up from your typical powered speakers meant for use with computers (logitech, altec-lansing, etc). Dynamics and clarity are good, and the treble response brings a nice presence to music (although they're somewhat unforgiving of harsh/bright sound mixes).

Good sounding, but has a background hum

V. Bradford Mason "Brad", Amazon
4 March 2010
  • Summary: I'm using these speakers for my computer, so I'm kind of close to them. I am pleased with the frequency response, but I'm disappointed that they have background hum. It's most noticeable when it's quiet.

Very good .... compared to what?

J. Gellis "dbassmon", Amazon
26 January 2009
  • Summary: This product is a solid performer as you might expect coming from M-Audio. Keep your expectations in line with what the product is.... it's not audiophile quality. They are book shelf powered speakers that deliver pleasant, smooth sound with no real low end, not remarkably great stereo imaging but...

User Review

  • Excerpt: Работать на них можно и вполне успешно, но только не в студии. Подойдут для тех, кто постоянно ездит и вынужден писать музыку, где только придется. Лично мне пришлось как-то на них работать, лежа в больнице)
  • Pros: Легкие, компактные, звучат не по-бытовому. Передний вход для наушников регулируется той же ручкой спереди. Очень удобно, можно даже использовать в качестве предусилителя для ушей. Хороший дизайн.
  • Cons: Мало баса. Даже для 4-х дюймов. У 3-х дюймовых Alesis 320 аналогичной стоимости он начинается от 58. здесь с 85-о! Слишком преукрашенное и недетализированное звучание. На мой взгляд M-Audio позиционируют эту акустику вполне справедливо.
