Taken me to next level
Duke888, 02.06.2018
You know when they say the most important part of your setup is the monitors? Well I understand it now.
Im coming from cheaper monitors. Since swapping to these the difference in my mix quality is night and day. They give great feedback. I find myself needing to reference on other systems a lot less now. If I mix on these, then I know it will translate well. It's saved me so much time in my productions.

The speakers are sensitive, show up all transients and details. If your interface is low quality these will really show it. So think about what you are pairing these with to get the best out of them and use good quality XLR cables.

I didn't want to drop the star on quality. The speakers are very handsome and functionally nothing wrong with them. Some people complain about the auto power feature but I had no issues, its very convenient.
But there are just a couple of niggles.
1. The EQ filter knobs have no click at all, not even for 0. It forces you to go around the back of the speaker to line up properly. Even a small adjustment does alter the sound so it would be nice to have a few notches.
2. The screw in feet are a bit of a fiddle. They are just screws with rubber on the end and the head is not fixed. The speakers are tall and heavy! So adjusting the feet is a bit of a pain and l I had one of them fall over.

Really I would say 4.5 for quality and I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

Excellent Monitors for the Price
Bazoo27, 16.06.2019
I bought these for my home studio as an upgrade from Yamaha HS50M as I needed a deeper bass response. Due to the passive radiators they manage to produce enough bass in a medium sized room from a usefully narrow cabinet with 5" drivers - in fact I've had to reduce the bass and lower mid response with the excellent rear controls. So a modest footprint but quite a big sound with clarity in the mid range and a very sweet treble. I also like the adjustable rubber feet which allow them to be solidly planted on the desktop.
