    Superb Sound

    Real clear and crisp sound, you hear everything. Bass and Treble respond very well and balanced. Used it on an Alesis DM6 with superior drummer metal foundry and it sounds excellent. The bass boost gives a wide range on the bass drum, it rocks! TV and music come out just as well. The Bass boost is hard so mind your roommates. Over all, great speakers, very proffesional sound.

    Sounds Great

    The CM-110 offers great sound for my electronice rhythm devices. It handles lows and highs equally well. All in all a fine product well worth the price.

    Excellent sound

    Purchased as a monitor for keyboard/drum machine.. The sound is excellent!!! I was initially put off by some of the negative comments regarding hum and sound quality but my experience has been great. I use the system primarily for my fantom g and it sounds phenominal!!! I would highly reccommend this system for its intended purpose...as a keyboard/drum machine speaker system. I had no problems with hum or sound quality

    Good but background hiss may irritate

    I bought a CM-110 to double as a keyboard monitor and computer speakers, applications which it is advertised as being suitable for. I tested it against the CM-220 and decided I didn't need the 220's extra power - in fact I rarely turn my CM-110 past 1/4.
    The problem with this is that the amp outputs a constant hiss (has a high noise floor?) through the monitor speakers at a volume similar to my desktop PC's fan. The hiss is the same even with all inputs unplugged, all knobs set to 0 and all adjacent equipment unplugged from the mains, but it is not present in the headphone outlet under these conditions. To be able to ignore it, you'd need to be in an environment with a bit of background noise or to have the CM-110 constantly playing something with the volume at 1/8 or greater. It doesn't seem well suited to quiet listening.
    Perhaps this is a feature of any product with this much power? Certainly it sounds fine when turned up, and its unique combination of features was just what I wanted. I just advise you evaluate whether the level of hiss will be a problem in your intended application.

    Would recommend over the CM-220

    I own the Roland CM-220 and am very disappointed in it for playing and mixing down music. Its a great guitar and percussion amp, but a sub-par PA or studio monitor, which they advertize it as. The two are pretty much the same unit with a slightly different amps. The CM-220 sounds great when its barely turned up, but it has two major problems (on top of a few minor ones). One, it only sounds good through the SPIDF input because they have a DSP on it that is tuned for the speakers. But the biggest disappointment is that they used the same 4" woofer on both units. There is just no physical way that a 50 watt 4" speaker can put out the mid-range to pair with that 100 watt amp. The mids on this unit would be the equivalent to the mids on a 35-watt 5.25" speaker. Its a surface area function. The smaller the speaker cone, the more watts you need for higher frequencies. You should have at least a 6" 50-watt woofer to match a 100 watt 10" sub. It's just simple physics. Also, the highs are over-powered and are "ear splitting", as they advertize on Ronald's website. Ear splitting isn't good at all. It gives you hearing damage and sounds bad. I have a Behringer B205 and that speaker has just a 6" woofer on it so it fills up the mid-range and makes it sound good, but there its not optimal and is kind of an expensive add-on. You might as well get a pair of nice 8" tops for that amount of money. I would feel comfortable recommending these speakers to someone looking for a good multipurpose set of speakers but the Blue Skys sound better IMHO.
