One of the most balanced near-field monitors on the market

Crosslinking, 15.02.2018
I am using these monitors in my home studio, producing techno-house-electronica and some commercial projects like soundtracks, foley-making for movie projects. I use them to form an equilateral triangle with me with a distance of 1.2 meters.

Sound is pretty clear and balanced or so called "flat" that I didnt bother calibrating them for the room or the positions. Lets speak with the numbers; checked them between 40hZ-31.5khZ range (limits of the calibrated device). Deviation from the flat line was not more than 5dB for at 50hZ out of 110dB. This is almost magic for this size. Around 2000-3000hZ there is a seems to be less than 5% deviation and till 14khZ deviation never reaches 1% again. This accuracy could be considered as very successful for its money and size.
I am using them with Sub8, therefore as they are comfortable on the high end they are also handy in low end and very satisfying with their sound.
The only drawback comes into my mind is potential fragility of the X-Art tweeters. Mine are in perfect condition. However a friend told me as if they have a very small touch they deform. Therefore you have to be careful when you are transporting them or using them in an environment where children can approach the equipment.
These monitors are very cost effective and promising with their sound. I would recommend it for a home user looking for a 5" speaker that has extreme clarity on high-end of the frequency scale.

Great and affordable

Tamas.V., 15.03.2018
If you're here and reading this review, I guess you know the brand already, so it's hard to write anything new what you can't find on the web already. I use them in my apartment ("home studio") and even though it just partly treated acoustically, I'm really glad with them. Precise and clear sound, I don't even need a sub for the bottom end. (mixing rock/metal with them)
I was thinking hard over the A5X vs. A7X, but got the A5X in the end. It really just comes down to how far do you want to place the monitors from your head and how big is your room. (Mine is around 20 m2)
Also it's heavy for the size and sturdy. The knobs and switches are also on spot.
I can recommend for everyone who is looking for a more serious monitor and want something still affordable.
