Dynaudio BM12A
Monitor speakers. I think the best for this use.

SOUNDS

Its pure. Outputs sound just as it is and not as we would like to hear. Ideal for composing and working.

OVERALL OPINION

Best studio monitors on the market.
Their only flaw: expensive! But it must be the right thing when the quality is sought ...

Dynaudio BM12A
- Motivation techniques: the bandwidth that descends low enough, a spectrum rgulier and "qualiseur", the amplifier Intgr biensur, the reputable of Dynaudio etc ...

- Purpose: monitoring in home studio mainly for acoustic music (recording and mix).

- Configuration: console numeriqe Tascam dm3200, DP5, G5 Mac ... and trs important, good or cables Monster Cable ...

I put 9 because they could go even lower in the grave but I really quibble too much.

SOUNDS

- Spectrum frequencies and fully comply with my ears ... can be a little too "acute" for some, but I call it more clarity (this is correct as we please with the eq the back celon tastes, for my part I use them without touching eq) ... they do not forgive anything and are very neutral end. The sound is clear as spring water and does not tire ... The TRS is good stro ... and dynamics exellent although the volume is not extraordinary (50w tweeter and woofer 100w), one can arrive vitte saturated but I find it just as well to work effectively without them be a volume leve too and believe that our sound sounds very dynamic and while it does not really grasped the case in the end ... They are in fact perfect for working out and a good sound and not to attack the ears in vain. On average, the knob of my master console is never more than half of the gain if they pass in the red, the Most of the time the knob is 1 / 4 or 1 / 3 and the sound is even when trs powerful ... I would describe as "trsractive" ...
My perfect taste, even wonderful, I rediscovered many albums of great name who spent much of the hi-fi but not vice versa, not to mention my mixes and other ... But when the album does it REALLY well done rvellent everything from a hi-fi, it's like the so-called Neve actually (compared to the result obtained, they can forgive anything but what is Bonnifait dja. And this is only my opinion ...).
Trs trs trs's good! A sub and more and hop on top of almost perfect spectrum, it would have rotted ears for not realizing it! A perfect tool for work and not sound of course. Nothing better to refine his hearing too. But I repeat, of trs good cables are a must as it pressed its a shame to ruin as pure ...

OVERALL OPINION

Six months of use and I like everything, nothing redirre.
I have used various models of Genelec, Yamaha and BM15A, to this day I never t as happy with the bm12a, and many more of the following, even the BM15A do not suit me as well (because of my local etc ... that anyway for my 20m2 rgy).
I will remake that choice away, I find my happiness monitor, you see for your now ...........

Dynaudio BM12A
- What characteristics have motivated your choice?
the manufacturer, the bandwidth, I could listen to

- For what purpose?
recording studio mainly (investment)

- What amp / What configuration? ...
2-way bass-reflex (rear) for 50w 1 "tweeter and 100w for HP 8". tonal corrections, selection of input and gain XLR connector only, all at the back

SOUNDS

- The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?
measured curve very, very flat frequency and phase, it is remarkable, I can spin my impulse response curves, or if you wish.

- The stereo image is good?
yes, the balance left / right is very good, it was all the space.

- The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?
There she is very strong, everything is clear and accurate, you understand what's happening in the bass, this is not the case with all "monitoring", the sub is present. At the top, it's not aggressive, no hole in the medium (as I suspected before changing my mind ...) but it is not as accurate as a 3-way style PSI (must not asking too much for the price either).

- The dynamics are respected? ...
Yes, they are ultra bright, no drag (if you have a room that is not the speakers;))

I put 9 (nagging me but the 10 9.5 ... what!) Because for the price, the sound is very balanced and accurate, it is all confusing

a little story: When I received the BM12, was during the project. I started mixing on prodipe a group of musicians. I could not, it took a long time (8 am for the flat, and balance). When I've ever received, and after running, we replay what had been done. We looked at the musician, and everything has been redone. we put half the time, and mix very well going on prodipe, and the majority of plays we had.

OVERALL OPINION

- What is so special that you like most and least?
impitoyables.du are sudden, mixes that come out are very good, but there will always be something you will not be happy, the other side of the thing

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
I heard many things, I asked the right and left, taking a step back from what was being said, I compared to other models in this price range, from my knowledge of manufacturing speakers and Dynaudio's reputation (and I know I worked on the other speakers in the range), I preferred to play it safe this time.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
very good, I have already said, even if they are worth € 2,000 a pair. They are pro speakers, should not be mistaken. The interface of this enclosure no mistake (not much less rca jack, no volume control) € 2,000 is unaffordable for most people for whom music is a hobby for a pro is an indispensable tool, as well as any professional

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
currently, yes, in 10 years, we'll see what technologies and offer other manufacturers. Acoustics is a science that moves a lot right now

Dynaudio BM12A
- What characteristics have motivated your choice?

Bandwidth, some switches allow for adaptation to the room, quality construction

- For what purpose?

Monitors / mix music listening and possibly from time to time a short film

- What amp / What configuration? ...

They are already bi-amplified and directly related to my RME Fireface 400.

SOUNDS

- The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

It's going very well (I had made by receiving a frequency sweep and just the sheet I had a feeling of slight depression between 100 and 200 Hz, and a small peak on the high mids - 'I remember more frequencies - and the treble to 8 KHz if I remember correctly, I have not done it since the "break" but I guess it had to improve, at least I do not feel the need to return).

- The stereo image is good?

This is excellent, the pano side are very clear, broadcasts are excellent even in aerated or weird reverb, center stage is set very well even on thin widths. In addition, the "sweet spot" is quite broad, allowing many to benefit a little or turn around when the space is not that of a pro mastering and we must move.

- The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?

I could really understand what the obscure term "transitional compliance", I read from time to time by not having a vague insight means (well, should also be said that in receiving the stuff of such, I went back to read a little theory, too). So accurate, yes. The rest were taken to naked in front of you, the various plans and tools makes their grain, their faults too, everything comes off, the eq are confident. I guess you could, again, do even finer, more detailed, more more more now, but probably not without a very large system calibrated to measure a room super processed, so full full full full of wheat more ... Or by going directly to (good) concerts (in the best rooms) - which IMHO is probably still the best thing to do with the difference in the budget, right?

- The dynamics are respected? ...

I was looking for instructors who can just treatment of the dynamics: it is really good, I'm not disappointed. It should again be able to always have a little better but then you start to be in the big leagues, it's serious. It was the real fishing kicks, compression settings agree, it can go more finesse.
On the whole, I had previously Event TR8, clear enough but lacking precision dynamic and also less fine (especially at high frequencies), now I really appreciate the difference, be it for my small projects or simply to listen to real big prods. Then we see more clearly what the major studios pros, and even they do (sometimes) (small, them) crap, it reassures some way!

OVERALL OPINION

- How long have you use it?

I received last week, they are just lapped, and it is true that the sound became more balanced after a while (especially the top was a little too forward and lens and I now have a real made consistent without losing the finesse of departure).

- What is so special that you like most and least?

For more: The fineness of the stereo, the posting of plans, the precise rendering of the dynamic restitution. It's really obvious now as the percussion percussion are before me kernels microphones, movement and placement of the singer feel well, the instruments make their own grain, etc ... Moreover, they make no noise, are very stable and transmits very little vibration even without MOPAD, and little heat. The transition to other sound systems seems very good (home theater, 2 stereo, car) but I still real test as 3 or 4 mix funk / rock and electro, not on more acoustic pieces (but hey I do not work enough sound anyway, and as for the rest of the investments and levels are very well made with BM12a I do not think there is little to fear ).

Among the less, uh ... design is only average? Honestly I can not find their flaws.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

I tried living in HS a lot of mid-range monitors (Yamaha, KRK, M-Audio, ...) before finally buying my Event TR8 and since then on the "step up", I could just listen to Genelec (it's good but sometimes a little fuzzy, and they do not go down enough), and Mackie (large print bumps) and Adam (clenching a little high on some sources for me to be too dynamic exactly! - and do not descend as well), I opted for the Dynaudio. I wish I tried the small French Focal home (but I can not believe that a boomer 6 "can go down as well), and of course also super models top high-end but good ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?

It's expensive for an amateur but it's an investment worth (and eventually to as much as what you pay now fi in most mid-range sedans).

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I repost a notice if it happens to be, but I'm very happy today.
