Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (65 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Perfect monitors for home computer audio studio."
Sound: Powerful and expressive monitors for my home computer audio studio. I connect to my Creative X-Fi sound card's digital out with a coaxial cable into the SPDIF jacks on the MS40s. I was blown away when I first listened. The response is amazing, from the lowest volume levels to pretty high power. I usually run my volume control about 1/3 with plenty of sound and headroom. It was the price that attracted me to these beauties but I cant imagine I would need anything bigger or pricier for my setup. If you want the best for your computer studio, get these amazing sounding monitors, and they look very cool too. Feature: I bought because of the digital input. I have used both analog and digital and to my ear there is little difference, but I like the idea of the digital input to eliminate any possibility of hum, etc. The bass and treble controls are fine, although I usually run them flat. The up front earphone connection is very handy when my wife goes to bed and I want to work. A very cool feature is that you can input both analog and digital signals, each with its own volume control, and mix them into one sound output. I suppose you could use the earphone out to take this mixed signal somewhere else. Haven't tried this. Ease of Use: Very easy to set up and control. My biggest decision was which digital connection cable to use, coaxial or optical. I went with coaxial because of its simplicity and its good track record. From what I have read, optical isn't any better, certainly in this set-up. Quality: Solid, speakers are very well made, amp is flawless. Nice industrial look for your studio. I wouldn't take these on the road without a good case (to protect the exposed woofer.) The wood case it a plus. Black color fits in everywhere. Value: So much better than anything you will find at a computer store. Use them just for your computer speakers and you won't be sorry. Manufacturer Support: Only on their website, which is very informative. The Wow Factor: Love the look. Really adds a sense of serious music production to my home studio. Overall: These babies will last me for a long time. If I ever move up, I can still use them in so many ways.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "MY STUDIO IS NOW COMPLETE!!"
Sound: I think these speakers sound great! They handle low and high range extremely well. I mean for studio monitors, you don't want them to be pumping bass or sounding too tinny anyway. You want them to be middle of the road so you can hear what the heck you're doing. I think that these speakers give me a great idea as to what I'm doing sonically. Feature: Given the fact that there are so many options for connection, I think it should at least come with the basic cables for operation. It didn't even come with the cable to connect the left & right speakers!!!! I was blown away! All it came with was a power cord. I had to call zZounds for a RCA speaker cord. Ease of Use: Extremely easy to set up and use. Lots of options as far as connectability; it should be possible for EVERYONE to use them with their setups. Quality: Extremely solid and looks great right out of the box. You can tell it was put together by pros. No loose knobs, switches or connections. When bass is turned up, you can physically see the woofers expand and there's NO rattle or excessive vibration. There is a little speaker hiss, but that's normal. As far as my computer monitor is concerned, it's extremely close and it doesn't affect the speakers one iota. Value: I think it's worth every penny, and with the free shipping you really can't go wrong. I can't see needing anything else for a very long time! Even if I do "upgrade", these will definately be used as a part of a future setup. Manufacturer Support: I had to call and get a speaker wire the day that I received the speakers and they e-mailed me by that evening saying that one was being sent out. That's my only experience thus far, but it's sure nice getting through to a person in about 1-2 minutes, especially one that isn't based in India!!!!! The Wow Factor: Very sexy setup. They sit authoritatively on top of my studio desk and just beg to be used. They want me to go all night, I say "sounds good" . . . Overall: As I said above, as I continue to build my studio, these MS40's will definitely be a part of my future setups. I can't see how they couldn't be. I'm in love. If I had to get replacement monitors, I'd stick with these as a replacement if they were damaged in a fire or stolen. I wish I knew it didn't come with the speaker wire before I bought it and it would have saved me a trip to the store, but it was pretty minor. I love the sound of them most of all.
