Top value for money

Cornelius F., 28.01.2013
The sound is excellent, as soon as I have money, I get the sub. Contrary to some colleagues, I find the linear, clean picture by no means disturbing, even if I want to listen to music for pleasure, I like to hear exactly what is on it, and beautifully loud they can.

The red paint surface is a bit susceptible, the MDF underneath even with two delivered boxes not exactly the millimeter exactly processed, but both should not make problems if the parts are not constantly rumgeschubst become.

The screw options in the base or, in particular, in connection with the separately available "MonkeyWall" supplementary product for wall mounting are only suitable for a limited amount of time. Probably but it is less to the nuts in the box than on the wall holder (MonkeyWall). Even if this does not actually contribute to the evaluation of the box in the narrow sense: The supplied screws are bad black lacquered, but have a funny thread, which is not in every hardware store to get, which is why you can not simply replace them with conventional machine screws If necessary, with gentle force.

However, they are obviously not designed so that at least the screws for the wall anchors lose their heads even with moderate torque.

These speakers are simply exceptional for their price! The sound is warm, nice, the settings equalizer low and hi are enough to counterbalance the frequencies a little heavy, the digital and analgic connectors are very well managed, you can have a symmetrical or asymic signal exchangeable through the switch, this is me Very practical, I switch from the computer in rca cohax to the stereo RCA decks with the switch without undoing my connections!
The sound quality is not that of the professional studio speakers but at this price one does not expect it either, but the quality is quite satisfactory for home studio, MAO, or mix, and You will not lack power even for evening returns, the decibels are there! I have not pushed them yet, impossible, the speakers at the 10th and the mixer at 1/4 the cells of my turntables vibrate and unwind the 2 vinyls, yet my desk does not vibrate, Air that cause this! Perfect for returning in the evening!
I have only had them for 2 days, but having been able to do the test between KRK, M AUDIO, BERHINGER, YAMAHA and JBL, I prefer my MONKEY BANANA than the other monitors of the same order of price (of course by putting the number one will find always better!). And on Cubase with 10 instruments (this is my heaviest track for the moment) the sound is perfectly clean, yet I'm on the original sound card of my Alien Ware X51R2, and no problem!
In clear: very good investment (it's still a cost, 170 per piece!)
Good sound quality, the connectors are adapted for a certain needs but personally they are adapted to me, and the settings are very useful (although a little small, but we do not often touch it then it is not a problem. recommended!
