First off, I’ve had zero issues to add insight on “Manufacturer Support”. Great news IMO.As far as everything else, these are the monitors you get when you want to WOW just about anyone listening to them without spending thousands to achieve that sound. I’ve never been so excited to listen to literally anything on them. When I first got them, I put them on our living room TV, while my studio was getting finished and they GENUINELY feel like movie theater speakers. Clear sound with humongous boom making anything coming through then entertaining.After my two months with them:I’ve maybe hit 65-70% max volume on them through my Apollo x6 and feel like I might not be able hear for a few hours LOL they get SO LOUD, but still keep their fidelity.They do however, have some sort of “auto trim” function, once you do go high enough in volume, especially with bass heavy music. Need to research this more as this is either a safety feature or they still haven’t been fully broken in yet which I’m leaning towards the most. If it IS a permanent feature, then this would be my ONLY negative I could say about them, but they get so loud you might not ever get to that point.Also these EASILY go down to 38kHz - they will shake walls a bit!!!YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED WITH THESE!!!! If you somehow are, then you MUST have excessive money to throw away. There’s probably no other monitors that are better for this price or cheaper.
Superb - you easily hear all frequencies and always notice something new in a mix or song
TBH every feature it comes with is convenient - the auto standby is awesome for ppl like me who forget to turn them off at times
Ease of Use
Very easy to the point where you almost forget to check the mix on other systems
Incredibly well - made by the French who take pride in putting out quality product in any industry
Honestly they’re a bit pricey, but when you use them you understand why - got mine on sale at $200 off hehehe
Manufacturer Support
Thankfully haven’t had to get in contact with them - knock on wood
The Wow Factor
Not the prettiest, but classy, sophisticated, & HONEST
