For great results — without breaking the budget — you'll find true value with the M-Audio AV 40 speakers.
M-Audio AV 40 Studio Monitors at a Glance:
Professional components — professional results
The AV 40 monitors are designed with the same quality materials and internal electronics that are used in M-Audio's acclaimed professional monitors. You'll find features like audiophile-grade Class A/B amplifier architecture and balanced 1/4" TRS inputs in addition to RCAs. It all adds up to a big sound that belies the speakers' small size. With the AV 40s, you don't have to give up professional-grade fidelity to enjoy the ease and mobility of a compact speaker system.
OptImage III Technology
M-Audio's proprietary OptImage III wave guide improves overall detail and clarity, while minimizing sound issues that can plague other compact monitors. The system works by improving the overall efficiency of the tweeter as well as time-aligning the drivers. This ensures that the audio from each driver reaches the listener at the same time, guaranteeing precise stereo imaging and accurate response.
Extended low end
If you require extra bass response, the AV 40 speakers have you covered. MDF wooden cabinets and a bass reflex design let the AV 40s crank out plenty of low end-perfect for urban/dance music, DVDs and more.
Magnetically shielded for desktop use
Unchecked, all speakers emit electromagnetic waves that can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. But, M-Audio's AV 40 speakers are magnetically shielded, so that all of your electronic equipment can coexist on your desktop without interference.
