These should be your first studio monitors

Karl37, 04.06.2013
External examination: it seems that the speaker is made of MDF what quite common. Silver "M-AUDIO" logo on a black background gives the speaker a lot of style and leaves a professional impression. Between the tweeter and the woofer there is a small blue LED that indicates the power, but there is yet another feature, namely when the the LED shines brightest then the speakers are properly positioned with respect to the listener. Layout is the most important thing: ear height, and the two speakers and the listener must be located at equal distance from each other, forming an equilateral triangle, and a good stereo image.
On the back of the speaker you could find current input, volume knob and Balanced TRS / XLR inputs. The inverter is located in the rear of the speaker. It made me a little bit disappointing, because directing exhaust air towards the listener would give more low end. But the 53Hz (manufacturer), the lowest frequency of a 5" speaker is a pretty good accomplishment.

Treble is very easy and does not shriek. In fact, these speakers are made as each studio monitor is supposed to be: they do not add any kind of nuances. Sound is completely linear. Midrange is actually a bit emphasized but it is necessary because the human ear perceives sounds in this range the best. Using M-Audio BX5 speakers musician can easily find his mistakes. Listening to todays pop music, which is over-compressed. These speakers reveal all deficiencies immediately. It is also immediately noticeable 256kbit/s and 320kbit/s audio file quality difference.

However, if someone is engaged in electronic music production should be aware that there is a need for sub-bass frequency loudspeakers covering 60Hz and lower frequencies. I was trying to figure out a way to add a subwoofer. Shortly after, I realized that it's not necessary, because these speakers produce very good bass. For sub-bass control I'll grab my headphones real quick.

I also performed some measurements using a small application called FuzzMeasure, Scarlett 2i2 interface and AKG Perception 220 condenser microphone. The graph showed me, that the center frequencies are not leveraged and the graph is quite flat. (Although I thought differently). There are also sub-bass frequencies existing from 35 hertz. On this basis, then gets to claim that the subwoofer is not that necessary. Frankly, I am more than a little surprised, especially after the measurements. It seems that AVID will not lie by saying that these speakers are flat.

I'd like to see some HF and MF compensation knobs on upcoming models to adjust speakers to room.
Do not think that these are bad speakers. These are very good monitors for beginners and they are used even in studios as secondary monitors. I'm very happy with my purchase: speakers look good and sound great at this price.

Bang for buck for sure!

Does the job. I read plenty of reviews and heard mixed opinions on the low end. It seemed a 50% divide between good and bad. Whoever said this has good low end must simply not have ears, seriously. I wish i had spent a lot more money on monitors, and so will you. What was i gonna do with the money i saved anyways only spend it in the pub.

These monitors are 100% perfect for starting off, just don't expect anything amazing. If you have any notions of even attempting anything with low end, they will always remain simply that. Notions.

Build quality is great, i could grind stone with it. Mid and highs are great. But do yourself a favour and spend a little bit more for the sake of the price of a hardy night out or two
