Works for me!

Sound quality is great for playback. Haven't tried mixing on them yet but definitely clear sound. I'm satisfied.
5/5

Great Sound

The soundstage these speakers set up is very accurate, neutral and transparent. The quality is top notch for the money you pay. I would recommend them to all.

M Audio AV42

Bought these to hook up to a desktop computer with limited space and wanted a good sounding compact speaker and this fit the bill perfectly. The AV42's have a good balanced sound. Don't worry about the bass, there is plenty. The more you crank them the better they sound. Convenient hookups in front for headphone and iPhone. We listen to a variety of music and it all sounds great. For a budget minded shopper looking for a great sounding compact speaker, I would highly recommend.

Let's be honest here, these aren't top of the line speakers, but for what they are they work great for me. I was surprised at how loud they get for a 4 inch speaker. They are perfect for my mobile recording rig. Brad, my sales guy, knew his business and should I need anything, I have his number and extension (1964) on my phone. Give him a call.

I was immediately pleased with AV42's clear high frequencies and wide stereo image. These are great for bedroom use, but will easily fill larger rooms with clean, uncompromising sound. The front mounted headphone jack is a nice addition for when it's time to be quiet.
