    Beautiful and reliable

    The best. Have several sets that have lasted many years. Smooth response, powerful enough to fill a big classroom, no distortion. Never mind the bigger names. Plus, you see these babies in the background of many top music documentaries-- no need to wonder why.

    Giant AV 40's + Acoustical Space Control, A Must

    I really loved my av40's. I tried another brand and they did not work out after trying a couple sets of the same pair. They were not magnetically shielded enough for my setup. I use synthesizers, electric guitar/acoustic, and a hardware sampler plus some software drum sampling and sound generation. I am also a vocalist. and have two fender tube amps. The M-Audio av40's are excellent for the money, but I needed more control over acoustics in my home studio and needed extra bass. These monitors are well shielded, and from what I have seen and listened to thus far, they translate very well. Like other peoples recording setups I do not triangulate towards the ears I keep them parallel. and will move backward and forward and side to side when monitoring. This cuts down on ear fatigue and works best for me. THANK YOU SWEETWATER! YOU have worked with me like no other company and your support is unparalleled.

    Love them

    My first studio monitor. have had them for like 12 hours now and they are just showing me the difference between my mixes and the commercial mixes. So much detail 500hz going up. Clear highs and the low end is quite good for a 5' speaker. The mid range feels squeezed but I am sure if I get it right on these my mixes will sound great elsewhere after all what your speaker is not good at will be what your mix sounds best at. Definitely a good budget speaker

    Subpar Computer Speakers - Great Marketing

    Listen to these and then compare to the KEF X300AW.
    One sounds like a toy and the other sounds like a small version of a High End Audiophile speaker.

    All three of the M-Audio speakers are in essence the same bad speaker.
    I once bought one and then returned it within less then a week, after listening a few times to it.
