M-Audio studio speakers are music industry bestsellers-and now AV 40 powered montors bring this professional legacy to your home. Unlike plastic multimedia speakers, AV 40s use technology thats trusted by top musicians, engineers, and composers: premium woofer and tweeter components for rich lows and crystal highs; wave guides for clarity and detail; and wooden cabinets for tight, punchy sound. Theyre perfect for creating all kinds of mediaand also let you get the most out of your CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.
Professional components-professional results
M-Audio builds the AV 40s with the same quality materials and precision electronics as acclaimed M-Audio professional studio speakers. The audiophile-grade Class A/B amplifier architecture, ferrofluid-cooled silk cone tweeters, polypropylene-coated woofers, and dense wooden enclosures add up to big, defined sound that defies the speakers' small size.
Clear, cohesive sound
The AV 40 speakers use proprietary OptImage wave guide technology-originally developed for the professional M-Audio speaker line-to deliver superior clarity and detail. Each speaker also features a precision-engineered crossover, which ensures that the sound emanating from the low-frequency driver will blend seamlessly with the sound from the high-frequency driver-so those deep lows transition smoothly into crystal-clear highs.
Extended low end
If you crave bass, AV 40s have you covered. With wooden cabinets and bass reflex design, the AV 40s kick out serious low frequencies-perfect for producing hip-hop and electronic music, or enjoying your favorite CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.
Magnetically shielded for desktop use
Many speakers emit stray magnetic flux that can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. The AV 40s are magnetically shielded, so they can coexist with other equipment without interference.
For first monitors, these are wonderful and serve as my main speakers for everything I do except when I'm actually monitoring my music, which I use headphones for. I don't have a very real studio setup and would rather have yamaha monitors but for as cheap as these are they sound better than your run of the mil stereo speaker setup.
If you're just scraping by with not too much cash, these babies will get you started for a measly £80! They have a nice flat frequency response range while providing a good all-round sound monitoring quality. Making sure these monitors are placed properly and providing the space is somewhat acoustically treated will definitely improve the clarity of the bass frequencies, otherwise it can get pretty muddy very easily. I will soon be replacing these for something more advanced and of higher quality, but for now they work a treat!
