by Harold Terrell from Memphis, TNI was not expecting such great sound.

This thing rattled my doublepane window out of it's frame.
by chris from Visalia CAI have a v-drum kit and have been using headphones for the last year. I've been eyeing the pm-30 for about six month but could never bring myself to spend that kind of cash. The cm-220 hit the market ... read more [+]for the same price and pretty much advertises the same things the pm-30 does except the 30 has a 12'' coaxle woofer and the 220 has a pannable 10'' sub. The 30 has outputs for expanding and the 220 has no outputs. The 220 was more along the line I was looking for.

Everything Roland says about the cm-220 is 100% true so there's realy no point in rehashing everything said in the advertisement.
Is this thing too expensive? I say absolutly. But it's worth it. Loud, earthshaking, clear explosive power, it's everything and more.
If you're like me and you've been hiding in V-headphone-solitarie confinment waiting for the right system, this is it. It doesn't get any better. close [-]
Wow! What a great little sub/sat system! Don't let its size fool you...these speakers pack a major punch in tight spaces. The bass is surprisingly deep and powerful on the subwoofer with out overpowering the crisp clean mids and highs on the satellites. This is the perfect companion to any keyboard rig, e-drum set, home studio, or computer desktop sound system. You won't be disappointed!
by Cale McCollough from Eugene, ORThe build quality is as to be expected from Roland. Lots of IO options, minus an aux out. The thing that sucks about this system is that the highs are totally blaring, or at least on my unit they are.... read more [+] Either mine is defective or the other people who submitted good reviews of this unit are totally deft. Its totally uncomfortable to listen to. The EQ on the amp blows. The high EQ just muddies the signal and doesn't get rid of the blaring highs. My Mackie 1202-VLZ3 manages to get the highs down to a non-abrasive level with pretty minimal signal degradation.

My other qualm with this unit is that you can't turn off the sub, you can only turn it down. This makes it not a very good option for home studios at night time. I am a big fan of the M-Audio AV40s for nighttime monitoring.
I do have one good thing to say about the tops though. The 3D imaging is superb! Stuff sticks out in mixes and sometimes you'll hear things behind you. I don't get that out of the AV40s. close [-]
