The perfect little box
Gordkeir, 12.01.2018
The perfect solution to onstage monitoring, small gigs and at home.
As a keyboard player in a busy 8 piece band, I sometimes struggle to hear a satisfactory 'mix'. Having lugged my own combo or speaker + amp for years, I wanted something more portable and flexible. Having researched what's available, I decided on a small 'personal' active monitor. Our backing singer recently purchased one from a well known manufacturer - which performs well, but is very expensive! Having bought a number of items from Thomann in the past, I was intrigued to find a very similar looking active speaker for a fraction of the price - 'the box MA5'.
Having studied the 'specs', I could see that the 'MA5' was virtually identical.
I was not disappointed - in fact I'm delighted!
This little box is very rugged and well made, and performs astonishingly well. The sound quality is more than adequate for my purposes - with clarity in the 'highs' and enough depth in the 'low' frequencies despite its diminutive proportions. The volume - should you need it is incredible! As an onstage monitor, I have it mounted on the 'mic stand' adaptor on top of my keyboard tower stand, facing me. In this location, the volume can be kept quite low. By turning it around it serves as a more than adequate p.a for small gigs. Even at high volumes, the sound quality remains consistently good.
For larger venues, I use the MA5' as my personal monitor and send my keyboard mix to the main mixer via the 'through' Xlr located at the back of the MA5'.
The MA5 is incredibly good value for money, (why spend 2 or 3 times more when you can get this!).
As a well built, great sounding, flexible and portable solution for onstage monitoring - this little box is fantastic!

It's ok, but not for me
Nickname Nick, 21.05.2019
It's a nice little amp, but the power is less robust than expected. Also the echo makes it very "karaoke". A simple reverb would suit better. The sound is ok, just not too loud... Of course it is supersmall, which makes it easy to bring along. In my case however it has become my amp in the garden, playing mp3's...
