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.

These are great sounding speakers.
Hobosapiens 28.08.2019
First of all, thumbs up for the Thomann team, they did a great Job sending me this bad boys fast and save.
These speakers are awesome. And that opinion comes from someone who worked on a wide range of systems and different speakers ( Yamaha, Genelec, Focal, Krk, Adam, ...) as I also work around different studios. Mtm's can easily compete with any of the big boys and then some. My Hs7 sound like a joke next to these. Great sound, plenty of Bass and options on the back will make you wanna work with these speakers. Calibration is a cherry on the top and it's done in a 10 seconds. It works great and it really helps you if you lack of proper acoustic treatment. Ear fatigue is a thing of a past also. I'm very happy with these speakers, I admit, I was careful at the begining as I red some posts about the "issues" some users had, mostley with the calibration, but everthing was ok as soon as I got my pair of speakers so I guess the "issues" were probably there because of the users and not the products. I would recomend this speakers to pretty much every one. Five stars all the way.

Great value for money
Mariner 18.10.2021
The 20 degree angle base really helps position the speakers to the ear level, the auto calibration is an incredible feature that really helps out in tricky rooms. The speakers are sturdy and transportable, the only downside is the power switch on the back, which can be hard to find.

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.
