Guilaron, 27.08.2020
Solid desktop speakers with good sound. Still might need to place them on stands to reduce the bass output a bit.
Pro's: Size is optimal for desktop placement.
Value for money
all needed connections are there.

con's: constant lights (on the front indicating the speaker is active and on the back indicating it is active..)

Super Boxen für Einsteiger
pckrell, 22.06.2020
Ich bin mit dem Sound dieser sehr gut verarbeiteten Box zufrieden. Zwar hätte ich mir neben dem XLR Anschluss auch andere Anschlüsse gewünscht wie beispielsweise einen Klinkenanschluss, aber ich glaube, für Anfänger das ein gutes Einsteigerprodukt. Die Frequenzbandbreite wird ziemlich linear widergegeben. Der Bassbereich ist auch relativ gut hörbar und die gerade tiefe Frequnzen werden besser hörbar als vergleichbaren anderen Boxen dieser Preisklasse. Daher kann ich diese Box empfehlen und hoffe, dass meine Einschätzung anderen Enthusiasten bei der Kaufentscheidung hilft. Natürlich ist das immer sehr subjektiv und ich bin sicher, dass bei anderen Boxen anderer Hersteller auch Pros und Cons zu verzeichnen sind. Für mich war neben dem Klang und der Frequenzbandbreite auch das Design ein Kriterium und ich bin mit dem Design dieser Box auch zufrieden. Auch das ist natürlich Geschmacksache ;) Mag sein, dass diese Boxen auch für den einen oder anderen noch als Hifi durchgehen. Aber für mich sind sie besser, als die die ich davor hatte. In so fern Daumen hoch.

Très bon rapport Qualité/Prix mais son pas vraiment neutre dans les bass
p_rivieri2000, 13.11.2020
Bonne enceinte, puissante et compacte.

Les évents bass-reflex à l'avant permettent de positionner les enceintes proches d'une parois sans que cette dernière interfère la diffusion des basses. C'est notamment cette caractéristique qui à dirigée mon choix sur ce modèle (Lorsqu'on à peu de place dans le studio et pas de champs libre derrière l'enceinte, c'est parfait). L'enceinte encaisse parfaitement les basses même à forte puissance (pas de saturation, compression ou essoufflement pour des petits monitors de cette gamme).

Seul bémol, je trouve vraiment trop de basse, ce qui fait descendre la note de ces monitors que l'on attend avec du son le plus neutre possible. Cependant, égaliser un peu pour réduire les basses pourra faire l'affaire. (Donc, pour ma note "qualité son, j'ai mis "pas mal" (mais sans plus).

Pour finir, en plus de leur place dans un petit home studio, je pense que ces moniteurs peuvent très bien finir comme écoute principale sur de nombreux systèmes audio (télé, jeux, hi-fi, etc.). L'enceinte est bien finie, compacte, très puissante et discrète. Avec cette puissance et cette qualité de son, une paire d'enceintes comme celle-ci pourra aussi agrémenter des soirées danse à la maison entre amis.

En tout cas très bon rapport qualité/prix.

Goede speakertjes, Ik gebruik ze voor de versterking van mijn Genos van Yamaha. Ze voegen zeker iets toe qua geluidsweergave. Prijs/kwalteit, een dikke 8.
