Product Description

Amazon.com

The Monsoon MM-1000 provides a rich multimedia sound experience. The two flat dipole speakers consist of a transducer (tweeter), which provides clarity for high-range sounds, and a cone, which provides dynamic sound quality for midrange sounds. Planar Focus technology directs the sound at the listener, minimizing reflections from the desktop and monitor sides. The 25-watt monopole subwoofer, which comes with its own volume control, provides rich bottom-end sound to CD audio, DVDs, 3-D games, and MP3s. The system also includes the Monsoon puck, a small device that controls the volume for the entire system and even lets you mute it completely. This system works on both PC and Mac systems and comes with a one-year parts-and-labor warranty.

Product Description

Monsoon's flat speakers with Planar Focus technology deliver surprising clarity, while the powered subwoofer gives rich bottom end to CD audio, DVDs, 3D games and MP3s. That's why Monsoon MM-1000 speakers were awarded the highest rating by MP3's website. Monsoon MM-1000 features an elegant pedestal design and more powerful 3-D audio. It comes with integrated amplifier and subwoofer, 2 satellite planar focus speakers, connection cables and volume puck.

These speakers are the best I have heard for gaming and digital music. However, they are very directional so you can't just stick them anywhere you have room. You have to get those 2 perfect spots to the right and left of you to get the full high quality 3D sound. Believe me, there is a difference. The monsoons do have a lot of power too. I usually like extra base (a lot extra) which these are a little lacking in but that balance is probably why they sound so good. The volume control and mute on that seperate little puck thingy are pretty handy too. I have had mine for over a year and would definately buy them again.

I bought the Monsoon MM-1000 system when it first came out in late 1998 and have nothing but the highest praise for it. The bass is deep and rich, but more importantly the mid and high tones are produced with extremely fluent and precise imagery through the flat panel speakers. This is something a lot of traditional computer systems fall down in. If you want the most heart pounding bass possible for games like Quake but don't really care about musical quality then go for the Klipsch Promedia. But if you do care a lot about the way music sounds, the way instruments remain clear and how the acoustic environment says "unmuddy" then the Monsoons are definitely a top choice.
Besides the excellent sound, these speakers look awesome; they might not have all the fancy indicator lights like Altec systems, but the space age flat panel design is sure to get wows. The subwoofer is also very attractive, enough so they you might not even want to put it under your desk! You can't really see to well from the picture, but there are two LEDs by the front buttons that light up red and green. The controls on the subwoofer are extremely smooth and precise, although the remote "puck" tends to add some noise when you change the volume. I got mine replaced and it worked fine after that, so maybe it was just an early model problem.
Overall, if you want a high tech look and great sound I can't recommend a better 2.1 system.

No gamer should be without this system. The sub moves some serious air while the flat panels pick up the subtleties in the mid and high ranges. The remote volume control + immediate mute button is a great feature - especially if your subwoofer is in a non-accessible area. The manual controls - volume, bass, and bass boost work just fine - but it's hard to tell a major differences between bass and bass boost when it's cranked.
The mega transformer seems a bit chinsy - but hasn't detracted from the overall quality and reliability (1 year). Minor peeves include static when you change the volume quickly and lack of wall mounting for the speakers. But overall great looking speakers that create a great 3D surround sound affect - even for medium/large sized rooms.
Compared to the Microsoft's USB Sound System 80 - I'm still staying with pure digital rather than out my sound card. 4-stars for the lack of USB option and the slightly premium price.

I have one set and am on the prowl looking for another. Sounds better than many home stereos and most "blasters" You could plug in your portable CD player to the Monsoons to make a "college" system

At this time, late 2011, if you love Monsoons as I do and had them on for 10+ years, the amplifier has probably burnt itself out. Well, you can rescue them easily. Here's what I did. Purchase a 20-watt stereo amplifier(KingRex T-class knock-off)from Amazon(Lepai LP-2020A). Cut the plugs off the tweeters and connect directly to the amp's terminals. Connect the sub-woffer pairs (after you remove the old amp) directly to the same stereo amp speaker terminals (no crossover or puck needed.) Just save the back panel to re-seal the ported enclosure. Wow! Blast away. I have the sub-woffer at desktop level it's so good.
Equalization can easily be accomplished with the iTunes equalizer. In-line cross-overs are available but the planar speakers cannot reproduce bass, so maybe in-line filters may be a luxury. The sub-woffer has a good mid-range response, but without a sub-woffer dedicated circuit the bass is not as heavy as the original.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By wilson boozer on February 19, 2012
I happened across a couple of the MM-1000 Planar Magnetic speakers for about fifteen dollars a few years ago in a thrift shop, and having previously owned a couple of Magnepan MG-1s, I was intrigued by the similar technology. Alas, when I came back to California, I simply didn't have the room to pack the Maggies, so I sold them.

After languishing for several years in my junk drawer, I wondered what would happen if I connected the Monsoons to my audio system, so I added two channels of amplification with a Carver M-0.5t and hooked 'em up. WOW! Mine is a jerry-rigged system using the naked Monsoons without the stands suspended sixteen inches from the front wall at ear level from a shelf so that the dipole reflective sound field really comes alive. My main front speakers are Vandersteen ones driven by a Carver M-1.0t, with Vandersteen VCC-1 Center Channel and Yamaha YST-SW216 powered subwoofer sharing another Carver M-1.0t through a Carver DPL 33 Dolby Prologic Processor, and two DCM-250 rear speakers driven by another Carver M-0.5t. All of this is controlled through a Carver C-4000 preamp, supplemented by a Carver CT-7 Tuner/Preamp.

The articulation of the Monsoons at high frequencies is on par with any planar magnetics that I have heard, and they are in complete harmony with the Vandersteens, never clashing with them. But their main virtue, in my opinion, is to add that subtle high frequency perception that one normally seeks through eternal twiddling with tone controls, which with these, I can completely bypass. These are not merely computer speakers, they are truly audiophile quality speakers.
