Very cheap and detailed

R3Forge, 30.12.2017
The speakers are used as monitoring monitors for the distance 1.5m. Generally I use you as a computer speaker. You are used for games, films and music production.

After a short settling-in period, I realized how extremely variable these speakers can sound. They have the ability to immitate other speakers in the sound. The great variety of settings that these speakers bring out of the box is amazing.

Stereo image, depth graduation and impulse response are very good. Of course you need a sub to be able to reproduce the deep sound regions well. By default, the mid-peaks and heights do not sound very wide or wide. But that's exactly what you want for music production, because instruments can be located so very accurately.

If you want to use the speakers for euphemistic listening to music, it is very much an equalizer software to use, which has a very weak reverb surround mode. Thus, these speakers sound like huge HiFi bolides and conjure a huge stage therefore, without sounding at all inaccurate or muddy.

I am very happy with these speakers.
However, there are two negatives:
The high background noise is heard on short listening distances pretty well, which is a pity. The standby mode makes the loudspeakers crack loud when switched on and off - That annoys.

Price-performance-wise, the things are really great. In this price category, it is common that the speakers have a high background noise. It pays to test the parts and get yourself a picture of this one negative point.

Excellent desktop monitor!

16.02.2016
I bought the unik 05+ in replacement of HS80M, the HS80M are far too bulky for a very close use, that is to say to 80 cm of my point of list without having a lot of free space for a good placement , Also I use them in addition to monitors of average distance that allow me to check my mixes with much confidence.
The unik 05+ plus are not neutral, are not fully linear, but are very well optimized for use in a small local, close or not to a wall, pull their pins very well in a little or no environment Acoustic treatment, the possibility of adapting the monitors with the supplied accessory which allows to close the vents in a situation close to a wall, in the corners, ... one can also play on the curve for To respond to the acoustics of the room or simply to adapt the sound to our taste from the different equalizing settings, no need to provide feet or various supports, they are made to be placed directly on a desk or on shelves, Besides, it loses a little of their advantages by being on the feet of speakers, even more by moving them more than one meter from the point of listening.
For serious mixing, however, provide monitors in addition to uniK05 + or a sub to have low and a small correction to correct the hollow in the low medium.
The big highlight, the tweeter! Very smooth, no aggressiveness, super precise, linear, good dynamic, outstanding stereo image in this range, really good for very long sessions without any fatigue.
The connection between tweeter and woofer is excellent, no problem filter, perfect linearity between 1khz and 10khz, can be just a little "gummed" between 1 and 3 khz.
The bottom a little less well, there is almost nothing under 100Hz, a bump not unpleasant between 100 and 300 hz, it digs in the bottom medium.
In conclusion, it is an excellent monitor for listening at low volume, immersion close to a headphone for the listener without disturbing the neighborhood while keeping the comfortable feeling of working on monitors, excellent in the high spectrum, Very nice sound, very cool sound, super image, nice and angled in the bottom, very good power, very good for composition, editing, audio editing / sound to picture, do the flat and control d 'A mix, adaptable all terrain while remaining very close to the monitors.
