Recommended over the A7X
SomeBritishBloke, 15.10.2019
I have previously used the A7X from the same line, and whilst the quality is far above most anything else in the price range, the low end was a little lacking. The A8X with the bigger 9" driver however is spot on. No need for a sub unless you're doing 5.1 mixing.

The only thing which I did find annoying is there is no balanced TRS input, but the balanced XLR input more than makes up for it. Just make sure you have the correct cables.

Perfect Sound

Perfect Sound, Perfect Quality, Perfect Speaker! All what i need. The more cool thing is that i don't have to worry for the back wall, because the bass reflector is in the front :)
