Good monitors

I am really impressed with these little speakers, sound quality is amazing, very easy to connect, very compact for using them on the go. they are small so there is lacking of bass, as should be expected. You could use a bass box to fix that very easily. Love these, im sure there are better out there but for the price these are really awesome starter monitors or anyone who wants to mix while traveling.

awesome mini studio monitors!

for the price,these speakers have high quality monitor sound and musical instrument separation like youd get from the ones they use in professional studios.Id say the alesis 320 are pro sound for desktop pcs and with the interface feature it tops it off for an all in one solution...again,within the price,these are the best mini studio monitors,you cant go wrong with these for quality and portability

Great USB Speakers

These were just what we needed to provide audio for the small seminars we do in our ministry. Thanks Sweetwater for not only a great product, but a fantastic price!

For $100...CAN NOT BE BEAT!!!

I am in the broadcast industry and in our main production studio I use Adam's A-7 monitors, WHICH I LOVE!!! But, I couldn't justify $1000 for a couple of secondary locations for our editors. I bought these monitors for 2 of our editors and upon first glance, these are REALLY decent monitors, ESPECIALLY for the price. I was really blown away by the fullness of the sound out of something so small and so inexpensive.
