Product Description

E-MU's new PM5 Precision Monitor has been designed from the ground up to deliver hyper-accurate audio in a compact design. From its custom audiophile amplifiers (Class-A input and MOSFET output stages) to its world-class drivers and premium cabinet, the PM5 offers superior imaging and hi-end transient detail with linear frequency response rivaling compact nearfield monitors over twice the price. Professional features like overload protection, balanced/unbalanced inputs, and treble, bass and input sensitivity controls ensure that the PM5 will seamlessly integrate into any studio environment.

Features:
Radiused edges reduce cabinet edge diffraction to provide superior imaging

Premium neodymium soft dome high-frequency driver delivers unsurpassed high frequency performance

Dual-mode LED shows power status and indicates when overload protection circuitry engages to prevent damage to drivers

Premium glass fiber low-frequency driver delivers outstanding linear response

Solid cabinet design features 1 in. thick baffle to eliminate internal resonance

Flow-optimized port provides low distortion and articulate bass

Custom 40W/40W bi-amped power section (with discrete Class-A input stage, MOSFET output stages and active crossover) has been carefully tuned to minimize aural fatigue and maximize audio precision

Balanced Neutrik (XLR and 1/4 in.) and unbalanced RCA inputs provide connections to all of your studio equipment

Treble, Bass and input Sensitivity controls allow you to calibrate the PM5 to your specific acoustic environment and set input levels

Includes:
E-MU PM5 Precision Monitor

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (20 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Great speaker for home studio."
Sound: Very revealing speaker. Flat as you want them to be. They don't fatigue your ears at reasonable levels. That said, these things can crank out distortion free sound at higher than safe levels. I bought these for my home studio and now prefer them to the $1000 plus ones we use at work. Hooked them up to a M-audio Fast Track Pro. Feature: Has all the connections you need. Ease of Use: It's a monitor. Quality: Built like a tank - really. Value: Well worth the $$$. Manufacturer Support: Have not had to use yet. The Wow Factor: Cool blue lights and metal flake cabinets look good on my desk. Overall: If they keep on working then maybe forever.
Style of Music: Rock, Jazz, Classical

"Precision Monitors, fair and square."
Sound: You would be amazed what comes out of these little boxes. Precision Monitors, fair and square. Feature: It comes with everything you need. You will have to buy your own quality cables though. Ease of Use: Just make sure you read the manual. Know what you're doing before you operate the PM5 Precision monitors. Quality: Build like a tank, small, heavy, sexy, solid. Value: Payed 230,- for each monitor. It is fair and square the best bang for the bug, no matter what others say. Manufacturer Support: Never had to use Support service, so I think it's worth a 10. ;) The Wow Factor: Very sexy. Overall: These are powerfull, fair sounded monitors. I don't think I will need to replace them. Maybe someday if my Project studio grows into a studio.
Style of Music: Nine Inch Nails... I don't think it will fit any of these styles. The most unique artist I've ever heard.

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.
