Must have for producers working in bad acoustic environment
Heavy stuff, 30.09.2020
This is killer stuff. IKM made something truly valuable.

I came to a thought of buying MTMs right after my 7 inch Tannoys went to hell. I mean literally burned out. Bad electrical grid to be blamed. I also owned 5 inch JBL's even before that.

To be honest my initial thought was to buy some decent passive hi-fi speakers and external amp for them. That's more serious stuff that many pro producers advice to use. So I was browsing Youtube looking for some comparison tests. And I found out that MTMs which I've being ignoring for quite a long time because of their size and price have some unique and undeniable advantages.

Virtual tests can't be a ground for decision making but they helped me notice a solution for a problem I faced many times. The problem I'm talking about is translatability of your mixes.

Like a guitar cab, studio monitors are literally a box that contains speakers. And you know what? That box colors sound so much... I was shocked. I admit that other much more expensive studio monitors were constructed so well that resonances that their bodies reproduce are totally suitable but that's inapplicable to entry-level Focals, Adams, etc.

Thanks to an advanced and effective shape of MTM's body and their DSP side they are able to really give you a possibility to hear mixes as they are.

The downside of this approach is lack of volume and "feel". You are able to hear everything from 35HZ and higher legibly but your bass drum hardly may hit you right in the chest.

To sum it up MTM is best possible option for most music producers. If iLouds are out of your budget you may without a doubt save some money on buying audio interface, mics, soft and even (don't hit me) acoustic treatment. The calibration technology is perfect. 1 minute to spend and they sound absolutely precisely, accurately and beautifully if room you're working in is any better than an absolutely empty metal barrel.

Also I would like to highlight how good MTMs are in creating phantom center feeling. You may see VOXs, bass drums, snare and bass as if in the palm of your hand.

I just have to thank fate for what she did to my Tannoys. Which are totally fine products in their price range.

Great sound for the size but it has a few faults
Nike Kid, 14.10.2020
First of all let me say that I was really, really impressed by the sound and the definition of the mids and highs of these small speakers. They really do sound big. However I have found that after using them for a few weeks I did not like how they translate anymore. I find the bass to be a bit overwhelming and boomy at times.

Secondly the monitors have a small issue with the power supply. When turned on the power supply emits a quiet but annoying noise in the high frequencies. If placed near walls like I did the noise sometimes reverberates off the wall. Working at night and at low volumes, this noise can become distressing.

Device with defects
Augustin, 27.03.2021
October 2020 I bought MTM. One monitor comes with a defect.I recharged the amplifier, I returned to Thomann. After a while I returned, but the problem did not change and recurred .I returned the monitor for repair again, but instead of returning a new monitor to me, it tests again, repairs. I'm tired of waiting and I bought new monitors.I am disappointed with Thomann's client.

Definition and clarity
daverave, 26.02.2021
If you aren't in search of something really loud (though 100 dB SPL are enough for my ears!) but clear and coherent instead, they are the definitive near field monitors. The incorporated ARC system for frequency response linearity and phase coherence at listening point is a plus
