M-Audio Studiophile AV 20

 

We recently auditioned the M-Audio's Studiophile AV 40 stereo speakers, and found a lot to like. Those big, beefy monitors were great for audio from a PC or any other stereo audio source. However, with 4-inch woofers and speakers weighing 14 pounds...

Takes up less desk space than M-Audio's Studiophile AV 40 speakers; cheapest M-Audio desktop speakers available; rock solid medium-density fiberboard construction.

No headphone jack or auxiliary input; small 2-inch woofer (compared with larger M-Audio models) makes for noticeable sound quality limitations.

M-Audio's Studiophile AV 20 is smaller and cheaper than its larger siblings, but the better form factor comes with sound quality compromises.

"Not worth the money"

 

I own this speakers for my desktop 3 years ago, noticeable static noise from day one, and getting worse and worse. also, a very loud explode sound when turn it on or off.

Compact, easy to use, fancy look,cheap

Bad capacitor

"Good for one major purpose"

 

I don't think people got the point of these speakers. They are reference monitor speakers. When your doing professional audio mixing, you need to do what is called A/Bing speakers (as in A/B: Speakers A and Speakers B). This is where you go between...

Weak bass response/

Not good for general purpose speakers.

"Paid AU$50 with free delivery-excellent value."

 

Having tried them with my test wav file with various styles of music I think they are excellent value.

Good sharp stereo image.

No level adjustment but setup in Windows anayway.

"So far so good"

 

After weighing my options to bump up the sound on my MacBook when I'm working at home it came down to these and the Bose Companion II I decided to go with the cheaper of the two especially since the Bose reviews were often less than flattering.

Good sound Good volume

Certainly not 'portable' in the true sense of the word
