Hercules Monitor 5 review
Alan Roberts, 08.04.2021
Before buying these monitor speakers I was using some cheap Sony desktop speakers for making dance music.

The difference in the sound since recieving these has been excellent, I'm hearing parts of my songs that weren't there before.

The only reason I haven't given 5 stars in all areas here is because I'm getting a hissing sound from the speakers due to audio interference. I believe this is because this cable to hook it to my desktop with a 3.5mm connection.



I'm waitingn on new cables to arrive and hopefully then all will be good. You need balanced cables for these monitors the cable I bought is unbalanced, it would be handy to explain this in the add for the monitors.

The build is lovely, they are a good weight and feel like they'll last for a long time.

Also if buying from Ireland or UK, maybe mention that you'd like UK plugs as mine came with European plugs.

Overall I'm happy with speakers and would recommend them for the price, my friend has the KRK Rokits and they're very similiar.

Très satisfait (utilisation amateur à domicile)
Ashkénaz, 17.04.2021
Enceintes achetées pour remplacer un petit ampli Behringer et passer par un PC via une carte son pour profiter de logiciels pour ma guitare.
Néophyte en matière d'équipements audio, j'ai pas mal ramer au départ pour parfaire mon installation, mais j'ai finalement réussi à mettre en place ce que j'avais en tête.
Grâce aux nombreuses possibilités de connexion en face arrière. J'ai branchées les enceintes d'une part à une carte son Scarlett 2i2 par câbles stéréo 6.3mm pour ma guitare, d'autre part à un adaptateur audio (Swissonic) par câbles RCA pour profiter du son de ma TV branchée par ailleurs en audio numérique sur de même adaptateur et profiter d'un gain de qualité par rapport au son de la TV qui sert surtout de moniteur PC.
Le son est clair, puissant, les fréquences sont bien séparées et audibles (la référence étant le son des enceintes de ma TV Panasonic, avec lesquelles je peux faire clairement la différence). Le gain des fréquences est par ailleurs ajustables sur le panneau arrière.
Ces enceintes sont suffisamment puissantes pour l'utilisation que j'en fait (je règle le potentiomètre au 2/3 pour une utilisation dans un salon).
Le bouton On/Off en façade est très utile car il permet de ne pas oublier de couper l'alimentation (voyant bleu).

Professionelle Musikboxen 2Paar
Sven5332, 22.03.2021
Die Lautsprecher von Hercules sind High End. Man könnte das Mischpult mit einem XLR Kabel (Links/Rechts) + Klinke Kabel (Links/Rechts) gleichzeitig verkabeln sodass am Lautsprecher XLR und Klinkenanschluss belegt sind. Man hört jede Feinheit der Musik heraus über die Musikboxen - natürlich nicht vom Internet, ich rede von Bundesliga von einer CD. Die Boxen haben eine sehr lange Lebensdauer. Nicht vom Internet streamen! Kauft euch CD´s!!!

Gute Monitore
zill950, 09.03.2021
Der Sound ist klar und präzise. Ich vermisse nichts an Klangqualität oder Frequenz, der Bass ist auch mächtig genug.
Die Verarbeitung ist einwandfrei und daß der On/Off Schalter hier an der Front plaziert ist, ist ein klares Plus.
