Showing 1-10 of 160
With some EQ these can sound almost as good as any $500 studio monitors

Summary: I'm a semi-pro musician and I have had a few entry/mid level studio monitors. My current other speakers are Yamaha HS50M (with a sub). While these are not as good obviously our of the box, they definitely have more of a studio monitor sound than computer speakers.

Summary: I've read the bad reviews about these speakers but I ordered them anyway and yes, after a year of normal use, the main power speaker cuts in and out. I've found a solution if you're comfortable taking apart the unit. Get some contact cleaner, unplug from the outlet and take apart the speaker.
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.
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've owned my set of M-Audio AV40s since late 2010 and if something happened to them I would replace them with the same model without hesitation. When I was shopping for something to replace my cheap generic computer speakers, which rattled and distorted when I raised the volume, my main criteria...
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 reviewed several different speakers and chose these. I use these for my gaming Laptop- m17x r4. They are connected to an external Sound Blaster Recon3d. The Recon is geared towards gaming and boy these do not disappoint!
Summary: I bought these to accompany a new computer workstation, and I didn't want to go with cheapo speakers or something with a giant muddy sub to make up for cheapo speakers (looking at you logitech and corsair).
Summary: I bought these with the intention of using them to process my Celtic blues folkabilly music on the road. I've recorded a lot of music in a lot of places, and have a pair of Yamaha NSM-10s and MSP5s for reference, as well as a pair of hefty JBL 4411s for final processing.
