--- SETUP ---
These are "pro"/studio monitors, so they have pro connections; XLR, TS/TRS and unbalanced RCA. I'm using the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 2 In/2 Out USB Recording Audio Interface for my audio interface, which gives me TS outputs to run to the speakers. I'm using the Planet Waves Custom Series Speaker Cable, 5 feet for the signal path.
I think it's worth noting that I did notice quit a bit of noise using the unbalanced RCA input. It very well could have been my DAC, but I can't be sure. It's dead silent via TRS though.
--- SOUND ---
These have astounding sound quality for the price! The imaging is superb and the soundfield really envelops you (like a near-field studio monitor should). THe high frequencies are very neutral and I couldn't be happier about that. Many small speakers are unnecessarily bright to give a false sense of clarity, but I find this to be just right. Midrange is nice and warm. The low end is surprisingly hefty for such a small box! I was anticipating a weak low-end and even considered buying KRK's subwoofer right off the bat, but I don't think I'll be needing it.
Overall, these have a very natural, life-like sound with a neutral overall signature. I can imagine the pickiest of nit-pickers finding these a little "punchy" (studio monitors should be flat as a board), but I personally love the dynamics. It allows for great sound even at low volumes.
The sound does start to break up a little at very high volumes, but I only got there for testing purposes; I, nor any sane person, would listen to music that loudly.
--- VALUE ---
I just don't think these can be beat. The sound is superb, the volume and dynamics are powerful, the looks are great and the pair was only $300. Many lesser computer speakers cost more than that. For my money, these are just great.
Sturdy for a work environment, natural enough for professional mixing, engaging enough for personal listening and pretty enough to be proudly displayed on your workstation. Can't be beat!
Ignore all the reviews on here by people who have owned them for 5 minutes and do a google search to see all the problems with them.
Very clean sounding (mids, highs and bottoms are clear though it's not the room shaking bass that some people tend to like). I don't have the best trained ears yet but I purposely play my mp3's on them and the difference is phenomenal between them and my regular stereo speakers. I do believe that I now hear what the studio engineers originally intended the songs to sound like. And when you find that "sweet spot" between the monitors, you truly get an ear full (pun intended, lol).
So far I've been using them during the creative process of my songwriting and even late night at low volume, I find truth and inspiration through them. I have never yet turned the volume to the maximum level because they are so loud that I don't want to tick off everyone in my house. Also, I haven't gotten to the mixing stage yet as I'm still learning my Sonar 8.5 software, but like I said, So far so Great!
Also, Amazon did a great job getting them here in 2 days. I love Amazon Prime (no shipping fees).
