Product Description

This high-performance monitor comes in a very compact design and it is extremely well suited for production environments where space is a concern. The BM 5A is well suited for music monitoring and mixing, broadcasting, OB vans, edit suites, playback suites, project studios and smaller post production facilities.

The small size in combination with the renowned Dynaudio Acoustics performance makes the BM 5A suitable for smaller 5.1 productions. When space is limited, the combination of the BM 5A with the BM 10S will deliver a full-blown 5.1 system with a remarkable performance, most often only known from larger setups.

The BM 5A monitor is a further development of the BM series and great effort has been made in extending the range with this small active monitor. Dynaudio Acoustics' engineers have redesigned and fine-tuned the BM 5A, according to the latest Dynaudio Acoustics technology.

The 2-way active system with a 175mm (6.9 in.) woofer and a 28 mm (1.1 in.) soft dome tweeter, builds on classical reference monitor technology. With the redesign of the exterior and the latest fine-tuning of the drivers, the BM 5A is sure to live up to even the most scrutinizing monitoring standards.

The BM 5A comes with a two times 50 watts amp package and a frequency response of 50 Hz - 21 kHz.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (76 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AMAZING PRODUCT"
Sound: Sound is incredible, I was worried about the bass response since it rolls off at 50hz but the low end is very very clean and transparent. Feature: Has filters on the back that let you get the sound perfect for your situation. Ease of Use: Plug and play. FYI: get Mogami gold XLR to TRS cables, virtually no degradation of sound. Quality: From the woofer materials to the casing, it's all top notch. No cheap metal screens here like in the m-Audio models. Value: They sound like they cost 5 times what they do. The Wow Factor: Very chic, no awkward bright trim that clashes with your room design. Overall: The best investment I've made in my studio so far. If you're trying to design a relatively inexpensive project studio I wouldn't trust anything else. As with anything, there is a rolloff curve with price to performance. If you spend half of what you spend on these, you will have a significantly worse sounding product, whereas if you spend 20 times what you spend on these, the improvement in sound quality will only be noticeable to the most distinguishing of engineers.

"Don't be fooled by their size!"
Overall: Been using these for a number of weeks now as a second reference set of monitors. I have these hooked up to my general PC where I do most of my casual listening on. I use Behringer Truth 2031A's as my main monitors with my DAW. I was lucky enough to get my BM5A's for $404 each brand new. When you get them it is essential to break them in. When you first hook them up the mid's might sound a little scooped, or different then what you're used to. This goes away and flattens out after playing music for hours over two or three days through them! After the break in period they are perfect. I found in my room, which is fully Auralex treated, that I had to set the switches to: bass +2 and treble +1. With the switches in that position the sound appears to be correct. Don't be afraid to use the switches to boost! With the bass at +2 these things really can kick. A rating down to 50hz doesn't mean you don't get anything lower, it just means it starts to drop below their rating of +/-3db. As I mentioned I use these as a second reference. I love my Behringer Truths and that's why they're my mains. But these are a great set to double check my mixes on and would also make a great set of mains. I highly recommend these speakers, and I've tried so many, even the BM15A's. Just make sure to break them in before you judge them!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
