Summary: I Upgraded from my old setup which was a SONY-MHC EC55, these are pretty old speakers and they packed a punch but they were big and bulky and distorted most of my music at times, but as soon as I unboxed these and hooked them up, (extremely easy to set up) They sounded amazing! they really control my small room.
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. The even keeled tonal signature is designed for accuracy but is still pleasing and easy to listen to for hours. These monitors are powered with a single stereo amplifier on the left monitor.
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 and/or several small rooms. After spending a little time tweaking my equalizer (iTunes), they really sing quite nicely (final equalizer settings listed below).
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. Good for in- home small practice rooms, which is where I use them. I would buy them again.
Summary: I produce electronic music and master all music in general, and these speakers were exactly what I needed. They are small and sleek, but provide the volume and sound quality that are needed to produce and mix music of all kinds. Here are my thoughts. Pros: + Great sound quality. As expected from monitor speakers, these give listeners a completely accurate representation of what they are producing. + Nice looking.
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! I choose not to run 5.1 as I would rather have Better Quality Speakers than More Speakers. The Recon's software provides 3D and SBX Pro software that really brings games to life.
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). I don't think there is a better value for the money out there for what these are, and I couldn't be happier with their performance so far. That being said you really need to know what these are and what they aren't.
Summary: i'm building a home recording studio and these monitors fit nicely into my budget. the sound is super clear and can be turned up pretty loud without distorting. NOTE: i have a subwoofer connected also, the woofers on these are only 4 inches.
Summary: You have got to try these monitor Speakers. The sound will blow you away. it will be like listening to your music for the first time. I am a music producer part time as a hobby. I do home recording all the time. I have not had any decent monitor speakers at home for a while. I am building my home studio and these speakers are a perfect fit. You will not be disappointed at all with these monitors. Everything is in the box. Great price and excellent sound quality.
