soprasound's review"I love them"
I give them 10/10.
I use them for mixing and mastering.
In my view, the frequency response curve is very flat, the dynamic response is also very good for speakers of this size, they lack a bit of lows but they are very precise, the stereo image is wonderful, I have the impression of having the singer right in front of me, I can hear sounds I hadn't heard with Adam and Mackie speakers. The sound is clear enough, very up-front mids, which doesn't annoy me, you'll need to adjust the frequency response setting the high-mids to -2.
I've had these Dynaudio for three weeks.
I have used many speakers throughout my life, yamaha ns10, adamA7, genelec 8030a (a bit too hi-fi), krk vxt8 (mids too far back and not precise enough), passive alesis, yamaha hs80, and, lately, I was also able to recover the mackie hr828, the first excellent speakers for mixing, but the lows are a bit loose, they are a bit muddy.
What I like best is their size, they are not as imposing as bigger speakers, like the mackie hr828 or vxt8, which are heavy. What I like least is the lack of lows (which you can correct with a sub)
They are worth their price.
With hindsight, I think Dynaudio has a rightful place among studio monitor manufacturers, although, if I had to, I would buy the BM12 insteas.
The sound that comes from the Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A is pretty incredible. It has a full bodied sound and great response all across the frequency spectrum, including crisp highs and resonant lows. They are perfect for both mixing and monitoring during recording because they provide a truly accurate sound and don't color your tone in any way. The EQ settings in the back make it possible to tune these to a room, which comes in handy more for home studio owners than professional ones because chances are that home studio owner doesn't have a tuned room. Other than the accurate sound, the stereo imaging and good as is the dynamics. The Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A are simply a great set of studio monitors.
Overall, the Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A are some of my favorite studio monitors out there for a few reasons. Obviously the great sound quality is the main concern as that is the first thing I would look for in a set of studio monitors. They not only sound great but aren't nearly as expensive as you would think. For this reason I would recommend these to all engineers whether you have a home studio or a professional one. The Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A are simply a great set of studio monitors, especially for mixing but they are also great for monitoring during recording or simply listening on. If you are looking for a very reasonably priced set of high end studio monitors, the Dynaudio Acoustics BM5As are for you. .

I use them for monitoring, mixing with a Mac and a big Motu card.
I second what has been said in the other reviews. Superb speakers!
I've been using them for 15 days non-stop and I'm still looking for something I don't like about them...
I have tried lots of models, Genelec, krk etc.. but I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again.
I use them in a home studio
Setup: edirol, cubase...+ synth and mics...
The frequency response curve is perfect, but to go down to 50 Hz you need a subwoofer, obviously.
Extremely precise stereo image...No remarks, it's amazing, you can place every instrument with a lot of precision.
The sound is crystal-clear, the highs are perfect, too...I love them!
There's simply no comparison with other way-too-generous and flattering speakers...
The dynamic response is also very good, not exaggerated at all.
10 months of use, they revolutionized my ears, no ear fatigue, a precise response, I finally discovered the difference between the mids and the highs!!!
I love their performance and precision. Their only con would be their somewhat ugly look, but I don't really care too much about that, as long as they sound fine...otherwise I would've bought a nice piece of furniture.
Other models...genelec, mackie, m-audio, samsom, Krk...I only regret not having tested the adam a7...
You need to hear them with your own ears, everybody has his own preferences...
Very good value for money...it's not like you're buying something made in China (although I don't have anything against our Chinese friends!)
I would buy them again with my eyes closed.
Anonymous 's review
Renown active monitors manufactured in Denmark, the other country for good gear!
XLR connections, Low-Cut that can be set at 60 Hz or 80 Hz, switches to flatten the frequency response according to the room where they are installed.
I was stunned by their neutral and flat character after listening to them.
- What do you use them for?
I bought them originally for mixing and I am not disappointed...you can hear even the slightest panorama change, it's a real treat.
- Which amp do you use / in what configuration?...
Currently connected to a firebox while I wait for an RME
- Is the frequency response neutral enough?
Yes, it's transparent and precise despite some difficulties (regarding the room and their placement) in the lows (50/100 Hz). Otherwise, it's all good.
- Is the stereo image good?
If you ever have the chance, try them out
Depending on the room and the distance of the bass reflex ports to the walls you can easily get blurry lows, but that would be the same with all speakers.
The overall response is very precise, even the mids are fairly respected, they are linear, nice, not tiring. In short, must-have speakers.
- How long have you been using the product?
- How would you rate its value for money?
I have nothing to complain about, to be honest. I put them on my credit card, but given their quality, I think the price is all right.
- Based on your experience, would you choose this product again?
I was impressed after having tested them, because at first sight they are pretty far from being big, but these near-field speakers have clearly exceeded my expectations for a home studio.
A change of monitors?
Personally, I don't need to.

If the curve is neutral so, with a high rather nervous, but interesting, and then it all depends on the room, the bottom is still accurate. get used to these speakers.
The stereo image is good, but different from what I had before with Yamaha HS50. get used to listen to these and favorite records to understand enseintes. Good dynamics is respected, the sound is clear. it has everything you need
I use it for 1 month, I tried yamaha before, so I felt the change, I was able to correct some mix (especially in the lower, I did a lot of dumpling)
I got a very good price, since the MK3 out, so yes I remake this choice.
What I like the most is that the focal in this price range did not, he is not soft at all, it responds well in almost all the frequencies.
With the experience I REFER without problems this choice!
(Council, buy with a good insulator, it is very important

eFDay's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Construction inspires confidence and exudes sérieux.Le design is very beautiful which makes it even better.
I have connected to a Yamaha RX495 receiver purchased for the occasion and chose to remain neutral which is echoed the advice and criticism.
Thomann bought for € 220 piece, I have had the surpise to receive the MKI version ..
So I returned and my Thomann is an exchange at no extra cost which represents a saving of over € 100 in total.Super matter then.

If I compare with my old Technics system gone up in smoke recently, c is remarkable neutrality and balance.
Dry but very defined bass, midrange and treble stereo limpides.Image dynamique.Autant amazing and good that I can see the marriage with the rx495 is successful.
Be careful though, 1/une break-in period is essential before the pregnant matures sonore.Je thought this stuff was the snobbery of audiophiles, but no.
The sound is actually more body to use.
2 / placement and orientation of the monitors is also very important and can change consistently experience the sound.
I use them for a little over a month with bonheur.Mixer suddenly became much simpler means everything, no unpleasant surprises at the replay on to other systems, stereo, headphones or autre.Brèfe they make me very exactly the services that I expected of them.
My favorite, the reliability of sound reproduction, quality construction
What I like least, not much is true I would quibble dire.Pour a larger woofer but hey it works so well already that way.
For 440 Euros it was a case, but even for 540 price at which they can be found everywhere, it's still an excellent value for money.
I would do the same choice, of course.

yizuu's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
config output RME Fireface
They are fairly neutral except at the bottom for reasons I would cite lower
the stereo .. so there ... c ... a slap pan is the smallest audible
sound! lower midrange to treble extremes is accurate sharp, clear, as adjectives, but it really is beautiful ...
and a dynamic top level
I have two years to replace ... ... incomparable MSP5
what I like most is the sound qualitée really analytical, no surprises as we go on the fi
least, it is the low ... in fact they are very detailed but at low levels, as we push the sound (and that side of the resource they have!) that vents are placed at the rear I have a problem in small premises only (take off the duty frankly to the wall that remains consistent) problem as it is known that they are designed for this type of environment.
I worked with a lot of models of this brand (which has certainly influenced my choice), the MSP5 (it helps out), small Génélec (I forget which, but I found the sound just too dull) of Tanoy, (not sure) ... well I did a little tour before you buy, that said you really take into account that if we know its good speakers, the result is there any kind (in this price range)
I would do without this choice problem, not staying stuck on this little problem in the lower
very good stuff at affordable prices

- For what purpose?
- What configuration?
out of my digi 002

more than that c is not possible that price.
- The stereo image is good?
- The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?
ca is very irritating to say why I have not this from the beginning ...
- The dynamics are respected?
more than enough
- How long have you use it?
- What is so special that you like most and least?
neutrality, at least ... bass, ok c neutral but really there is not much.
- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
yes, I had alesis monitor one, the mk2, I worked with a friend who has Genelec 1031.
- How would you rate the quality / price?
good value for money.
- With experience, you do again this choice?
yes no problem.
hallucinating still hear some incredible stuff on mix mastered ds sold commercially, the Satus of voices, breathing imperceptible, the curls of strings, the harmonics that emerge, I rediscovered my cds, my mix made of m1mk2 to be redone. c of pure happiness.

quentin59's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
All share in the low end but hey, we can not have it all.
- For what purpose?
Mixing and mastering personal pr-electro music but mainly Rock and Pop
Recently costs in the main room, directly connected to the source, no EQ, there's nothing like them to know her by heart
For me they are perfect .... except below 50 Hz, but unfortunately, a subwoofer is indispensable.
Above 50 Hz, not the least surprise, no mixing RALIS on BM5A not me on the other costs.
A pure sound, and prcis irrprochable, any sound that is no place IMMEDIATE spring.
Used since June 2006, while I like them.
For the purchase, I compared the Genelec, Mackie, Yamaha and many others (less than 1500 per pair), no sound labeled me as one hsitation meet Adam Artist extremely prcises but I think less neutral.
Report qualitprix perfect.
I would do without this choice hsiter, j'hsite even invest in the subwoofer to complete my BM9S Systm but this price is dr ...
