SUPER, JUST A SMALL BUT ...

Dominique 35, 31.12.2015
- I bought these M-Audio AV42s to replace a broken M-Audio AV30 after 6 years of almost daily operation. I was satisfied with my AV30, so when looking for a pair of replacement speakers, and given the large number of brands available, I finally preferred to stay on the M-Audio brand.

- I use these speakers connected to my desktop PC which is also the family PC, to sound the PC and to listen to music in background sound. Sound background that can be high as soon as I am alone, musician oblige. In precision, it takes a real desk, because these speakers easily take 25 cm of space on either side of the screen.

- The use is very simple, no fuss, no equalizer, it is on the PC that adjusts the sound. The first enclosure contains all the electronic part, the 2nd one is a passive enclosure connected to the 1st. The volume control is on the front panel with 1 auxiliary input to connect an mp3 or other, and 1 headphone output.

- The sound is very good, I insist on this criterion, because it was him and only him that made me return to the M-Audio brand.

- The only downside I have, and this is the explanation of my rating of 4 stars out of 5 in the "Features" section is that the speakers are not protected by a grid, while those of My old AV30 were. I find it really a shame for speakers often intended to be in the hands of young children, for example, or various things that one can dispose on his desk when working, books, open binders ...

- I use these M-Audio AV42 for three months now, and I absolutely do not regret my purchase.

Great for the price!

I have the boxes a bit longer now
And must say that one for 140¤ probably hardly
Something that sounds better.
Very natural sound without drumming
And a small one but also
Satisfactory bass for only 4 '' woofers.

If you open them loudly they also have something of
The Punch one would otherwise rather with Krk or similar. Is found.

Workmanship is top and the design also captivates.

I am very happy with the purchase and great praise
Thomann for the great service.
