    I was looking for a pair of monitors "inexpensive to work my prods before going into the studio, I have possd passive one million previously, I used much for listening HI-FI as for r settings of my instrumentals ...

I would go even further, it is difficult to choose precisely a low type from those speakers.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use them for 2 years now and I knew that in this range of speakers, you should not expect to much but I wanted tent stroke, compared to the very attractive price which remains THE greatest asset these speakers.
    I worked on a few pairs of speakers before (Dynaudio, yamaha, samson, Mackie, tannoy, Genelec ...) and it is almost the worst ...
    I think when no monitor speakers, has still valid, they are almost the only ones in this range accessible to all.
    Looking back, I do not have that choice, I am now persuaded of the importance of conomiser to buy a very good pair of monitors is the basis of a studio and n 'There are no secrets for me the best references are the Gnlec 1030 series and the new Dynaudio, but it is above all a matter of taste.
    Alesis ... Hmm !!! They are weird these people right?

    The amp included within motivated me to buy it, and again I already knew these speakers, their sound etc. .. I wanted for my home studio, waiting to have more money to pay me to listen better.

    SOUNDS

    the stereo image is not bad, however the frequency level it has bass too (and at the same time it has no sub) and I notice a lot of holes in the spectrum, which reflects the price !

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use them for my own personal use dpuis almost a year, I like well inscribed side and its price, after at her we can do better, however to note that they are of great speakers for multimedia on the ordi!

    Mixer configured with the same brand itself connected instrument and a PC + Cubase 5.

    SOUNDS

    RAS
    Its very clear and precise.
    Stereo, dynamic and correct frame rate.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These are my first monitor speakers and I use them for 9 months.
    The accuracy of the sound is very significant if one is confined to use studio / repeat.
    I recommend this product if it is used in the sense of its design.

    j we have not chosen me has passed on ....

    SOUNDS

    very bad on all points:
    - Low and excessive drooling.
    - Acute weaklings
    - Mediums nonexistent
    - >> Phase coherence in rescues!

    conclusion impossible to work with this stuff.

    OVERALL OPINION

    However useful for controlling a mix:
    if it sounds (a little) in the mix is ​​that my c holds up.

    I had a price on a model expo, and they have faithfully served me for several years. They were my only two monitors output table Yamaha 01v.
    I honestly do not remember when or at what price I had had.

    SOUNDS

    The sound quality and power are good enough. The weak point is the definition in the bottom of the spectrum: it is both vague and too flattering. This is my Dynaudio BM5 sure which replaced the Alesis are infinitely better in every way, but it does not play in the same league!

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a good product to learn to "listen" and blending. But it must be replaced for sure, when ... do not worry, your ears will tell you!

    They lent me these speakers that I use for several months.

    ringing because this stuff is the high-flying, unlike good monitor speakers that they are the failure to accept everything without much flinching.

    j finally adds that to do this we need another pair of monitors worthy of the name (in my case Focal Solo6)
