Sound: Good for the money, keep in mind reference monitors should be used for accuracy so that a the user will have a good point of reference to mix and tweak the EQ. I understand some folks are complaining about not having enough bass but these speakers were meant to give a neutral sound rather than a bassy or tinny sound. They do what they were meant to do for a reasonable price I couldn't ask for more. Feature: Not much to say, it's a pair of studio monitors. Ease of Use: If you don't know how to hook these up or turn on a switch then perhaps it's time to reconsider. Quality: The product showed up, blemish free, haven't really tested it out as far as taking it anywhere short of my tiny home studio so I can't give an honest assesment of how rugged this thing is. Value: Decent pair of monitors for about a hundred? I'd say it's worth it if you are a home studio on a budget. The Wow Factor: errr...there is a bass......hole in the back...not sure if I'd want to do anything with it (in regards to sex appeal). It has...a blue let Overall: Obviously if my budget improves I'll be picking up a better pair but for what I'm doing now these are adequate.

SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
Sound: In this price range, I never expect these two compact monitors can deliver such good sweet sound and bass response even without the bass boost on. NO BOXY SOUND ANYMORE>>>.For this price, you will find the sound is too good to be true when you compare to the other bigger brothers like Yamaha, Mackie, KRK and Samson etc...I have scouted for 3 days before buying this. Frankly, No regrets after enjoting countless hours of playback. This Monitor Rocks... Feature: Could be better with EQ controls, The rest is wonderful. Ease of Use: Plug and play...Whats more.But remember to adjust the voltage behind to your country's standard voltage output of 230v or 110v. Quality: Wood or MDF is the best cabinet for speakers. Value: Every dollar you paid, you hear it. Manufacturer Support: ok...good The Wow Factor: Of cos, i want it and I got it at a good price. Overall: For budget studios with small rooms, this is the perfect one for you and you wont regret every dollar spent when you play and listen. THere are some brands that tell you everything under the sun but give you disappoint eventually when the speakers worn out. M-audio dont lie and disappoint when you just get this monitors and listen..Well Done, M-audio.

Sound: Sounds good, nice and clear, but really no bass at all. Feature: Pretty much just a bass switch, that doesnt really do anything anyway, and a volume control. Ease of Use: Really easy. Quality: Sometimes the line in jack goes out on me, but toher than that good. Value: Good for small home studios for the price. But i reccommend to pay a little more a get some ones with some bass. Manufacturer Support: Havent had any problems really. The Wow Factor: The color scheme is kinda cool, and has a blue LED light as the volume control. Overall: Not bad in general. Like I said, if you want some bass spend a little more money and buy some better ones. Overall good though, for sound quality.

Sound: Good sound quality for the price. Feature: the bass boost is a nice touch. Ease of Use: plug and play, very simple. Quality: M-audio blows. In my life I have ordered three pairs of faulty monitors from them. One pair came from here, Zzounds was prompt to ship a replacement which I have been using ever since, but occasionally a channel will go out or there will be crackling, etc. The sound is good but the production of their products is cheap. Spend your money on a legit company, and follow the saying "buy cheap, buy twice". Value: if you pay money for something that is supposed to work, it should work. M-audio doesn't seem to care about this. Ive had,like i said, three incidents with this company, so I don't think this is a fluke. Manufacturer Support: support is decent on their site ( Ive had to deal with them a few times), but they really never have a solution for their products being corporate crap. The Wow Factor: A pair that would work more than 6 months would be nice.. Overall: Please don't waste your time and energy with this phony company. Save up a little more cash and get something solid and reliable.
