I bought this monitor to complete my home studio. My choice was mainly motivated by price. I use them with Cubase SX, a Mac G5 Dual proc and card M'audio ProjectMix ... The relatively good stuff in fact. With that, I record mainly real instruments, guitars, basses, drums singing.
This is where it's going so well. Bass enhancer function greatly expands the bass without being able to cut it. The short answer is simply the speakers too hard on the bass. The difference between the headphones and speakers is striking, but not in the sense that one would like. Basically, to get an eq just correct, you must make an adjustment on the speaker's bass style: 1 / 10 treble and 9 / 10. So no middles. In short, I do not mix more than the headphone.
I use them for about a year and and I still have not been convinced. The price is what made me decide but it also appears that making the poor quality of the speakers. The lesson of it all: good sound, comes at a price!

These speakers are designed to confined spaces, and for the budget ...
As mentioned earlier, little probs with the bass, especially with regard to mixing (!)... For listening and enregidtrements, no worries they will do.
I use them for a week ... I like the convenience because I lack a little room ... it's still the low end and it obviously does not meet the road pros monitors to 5000 euros, but for the price, and for that I use (small hacked recordings / listen / mix to hard " lo fi ", it suits me perfectly.
given the state of my wallet, and instead I use as I do, I would do this choice without hesitation.
If you are looking for professional equipment, save one year (or two)

Chombinch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I was looking for small speakers and low CHRISTIAN for costing during the recordings. These two small speakers are very simple: the right contains the amplifier and the few rglages (bass, treble, volume) and the left contains only the bowls.
At the rear we find the plug to the power supply, the connection for the left speaker, RCA output and an output for optional subwoofer (but I do not see too much to add intrt a sub to the speakers ...): hard to get any easier.
That level of sound you start to understand the price ... Although ...
I want to make what is Csar Csar: the sound is far from being bad. The dtails and grain are noticeable sound with beautiful shades and sound, if not brlant is far from the surgical coldness of many speakers in this price range.
Remains the problem of low ... First of all, I still do not understand what this PROCD bass enhancement, because the speaker itself dlivre than enough bass for its size. Still, we take great care <span style="text-decoration: underline;">to disable systmatiquement:</span> a simple button press "bass" and disables it. Then, playing around with the rglages (best for me is lightly boost the treble and bass rgler more or less at the center, depending on tastes) it may happen balance very correct.
It remains a somewhat hollow dsagrable medium rather high level. This is not a details: if not prjudiciable the cost (for albums dj mixes, movies or other is even a comfort to costing any respectable), it is difficult to make a good mix on this pair of speakers (it will always tend compensate for deficiencies in some pushing at del frquences of what is necessary and n 'needs to the lowest they deem too audible dj ...). Conversely, in my case, I think it's a very bad idea as making a mix with headphones. The sound is meant to be a project with headphones you get a false idea of what gives the mix once propelled into space. So who does have caused these speakers: it is best to buy a new pair!
I use these speakers for over a year now and the experience helps, I have tame ... and arrive ahead of his weaknesses and resists the temptation to fix upstream.
I enjoy the quality and depth of his compartment Reduces congestion and low prices, but the Bass Enhancer PROCD r Completely useless and I still do not understand what ' it is the reason it is not activated by default every time you turn the speakers ...
To me, he must be honest face these kinds of products: they are brave beasts. The sound is good enough for me, it must be naf Hoping to better the price as not to see their quality Evident certainly relative, but the all the same.
<strong>With exprience, you do again this election?
<span style="font-weight: normal;">The issue has nothing to do with the exprience (I knew what I was buying these speakers ...) but more with my financial resources ... In the inglorious situation where I am, yes, I would do this choice. With a few bars more ... ever.</span></strong>
