Great sound

Westy Bestie , 30.03.2018
I purchased these speakers for a second recording studio at a radio station and they have a wonderfully full, warm sound. Very nice looking, and well packaged. They have all the inputs / outputs you would want and expect. Great product, good value and would recommend .

The speakers are mainly used to listen to CDs and YouTube music. But also as monitors when playing pianos. And I am really pleased with the low tones of my pianos and synths because the speakers excellently reproduce them in medium and high volumes. I have spent a few hours listening now and can give the speakers for the money (currently about 240 euros for the couple) a very good. Processing is also very neat.

Was tested with Wess Morgan (Livin '), Dreamgirls (soundtrack) and ACDC (Highway to Hell).

The basses are highlighted. For this you can make a lowering on the back. But I will again get extra Absorberpads because the table top resonates quite nice. The supplied pads for sticking are not sufficient here.

Conclusion: When buying monitors in this price range necessarily listen ..
