    Fostex PM-1Published on 07/13/07 at 00:05
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Knowing nothing to monitor speakers, I renseign AF and t seem to me that the PM-1 were a great value.

    SONORITS

    Personally I'm not a big fan of the sonority of these pregnant but this is unlikely to be of the play in which I work.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I've had a year in 5 days and one of the two saturates.
    I have a boomer who has CPDA and a tweeter so cram it is clear that I do not have that choice and I regret this purchase.
    The Svice after sales at Fostex is very matter, they very quickly recall me, are very friendly and have given me and rference or find the product.

    What characteristics have motivated your choice?
    initially it was the price that made me decide.
    For what purpose?
    for component mixing and premaster.

    SOUNDS

    The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?
    I would say that 50 Hz to about 2 kHz is good, it's pretty linear contrast over it tend to add shine, so you have to be careful about mixing the acute frequency.
    The stereo image is good?
    yes it is very good.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?
    for 8 years.
    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    no it's the first one I buy from I is not changer.j 'took my cue and used it, so I began to know them very well and be accurate with in my mi…

    I wanted to sound quality in order to make models that go everywhere. And there is no significant distortion in sound reproduction. It is in a professional that I used.

    - The curve frequency drives is it sufficiently neutral?
    Yes for me, and I am very demanding

    OVERALL OPINION

    I am blown away by these speakers I've experienced before you buy.
    It was for me a small piece (and my room of 15 M2 are super strong (I'm a quarter of its power and they do not saturate the bottom)
    The bass is really respect and prcises (slightly less than the M6 ​​but must also see the price)
    Pan impressive because it can be in space or are the instruments. (In a classical orchestra is important) and that was my scotch.
    Discoveries I subtleties in the songs, which copes me despite my headphone costs at or very good Hi-Fi
    They reveal the mistakes ... and registration for mixing is crucial
    A report quality price gnial. I heard Tapco, the MSP5 (its a little box), and M6 (but I have yet to win the lotto), the Berhinger, the Alesis .... but that s the FOXTEX 'come out victorious.
    I rediscover all my CDs and electro acoustic pieces, is happiness. (Ahhhh glisss the strings on the guitar, ptits lick of the flute ....)

    I would do without this choice hsiter. It matches my tastes, and criteria of neutrality.
    I made them listen to a sound Ing silent breath of quality for that price ... and a bottle ... So why hsiter?

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it? several weeks
    - What is so special that you love the most, least? Plus, the value for money sonnorité, no complicated settings. In fact the only adjustment is the level of gain. Minimum, the vagueness of the gain knob, it is very small and lack the scale of reference. Other surprise, the gain is zero when you unpack the speakers the first time, on reflection it is quite logical, but it's a strange feeling "no sound".

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it? I know that models of studio pros, Dynaudio, Genelec, ElectroVoice ...

    - How would you rate the quality / price? Excellent

    - With experience, you do again this choice? ... yes without hesitation

    Buy for my home studio I have the cost of other speakers to compare qualitprix:
    MSP10 yam, msp 5, NS10, truth, Tapco S5, Alesis, and then my Fostex

    considering the price (especially in Germany 500) and for my use it is perfect.

    SOUNDS

    They are neutral, the stereo is really good, the sound clear and Sufis prcis mostly mediums and good momentum.

    for the price and my ears ptites there is no better!

    OVERALL OPINION

    In any franchsie biensur are terrible but there are better more expensive, APRS we must know and work consquence

    If I have 10 c around it suit me all points of views, we will see later for a 2 pairs of Coutes ....

    What characteristics have motivated your choice?

    -The size ratio between the two hp giving a good resolution of the sound spectrum overall.

    For what purpose?

    -To compose, mix, listen to see my components as those of friends

    -What configuration? pentium 1.8giga 1024 ram. Cubase SX and VST plug-ins

    SOUNDS

    The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

    -Difficult to be precise on this poit joker

    The stereo image is good?

    very good for the price I am impressed. I think the size of the speakers is not bad

    The sound is clear and precise on the spectrum?

    - After several attempts on several other models, I found a finesse that was not the other (MSP5, truth, bx8) although some were close (eg bx8). 6 months after a regal past my ears on MSP5 revived. they are not aggressive and mixing several hours becomes less difficult than on MSP5 by ex.on is not in the court of the M6 ​​c is on but not head of the range of problems.

    The dynamics are respected? ...

    - Not "too" expressive these speakers do not reserve surprises, it is roughly on what is a. I rest on the buttocks for the price.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you use it?

    - One week and already I'm about to have what I need. c is the MSP5 after the holidays hehe

    What is so special that you like most and least?

    It least: can be a bit lacking power amp level, and behind the volume knob and no guts to settle correctly.
    It more neutral, not tiring to listen on a mix that lasts, the definition of homogeneity across the spectrum.

    - Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    - MSP5, truth, bx8, krk, Tapco

    How would you rate the quality / price?

    very well

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

    c is still a little young but I think yes, if I change my mind I would come talk about it but I doubt it.

    I needed the most versatile monitors major effort to compose and mix

    SOUNDS

    Curve fairly neutral with a little more in the low freq, the sound is clear and spatially rpart. Trs trs and especially good momentum!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use these speakers for several months, and I was among several hsit MODELS BX5 note the M-Audio. But there really is no comparison, it may be less beautiful ke M-audio but the cost does not forgive. They bcp more safe and impressive dynamics. In addition they go down lower in the low freq, what ki is super important for monitors of this size and for music I do ke (black amricaine)

    I used to major cost in home studio, direct derrire a sound card.
    I chose them because they are the only speakers in this price range that are unanimously in the tests.
    Simply because they are imbalances.
    I looked exactly the balance for a single cost, mat.

    SOUNDS

    Good neutrality (some do not like this neutrality and say they are "flat" ... it is the goal!).
    Small bump at the bottom of the lower, certainly due to the bass reflex (like all the bass reflex is the design that is a).
    Gnant but it is not at all.
    Low trs own farms, and finally stretched enough for the size of the boomers.
    That's what surprises the first cost, as low a (APRS running!) On such small speaker…

    Stereo Image trs good.
    Acute prcis and not tiring at all the long (many others pierce the eardrums that price, so we lower the treble and APRS ... there are more!).

    OVERALL OPINION

    Use the last few months, the time will integrate well into my indoor, lapping the (very important), well analyzed by listening to CDs on it.
    They go well trs Test CD (Stereo image, depth ...).
    I am more pleased.
    Report qualitprix unbeatable!
    I do it again this choice without hsitation.
    I bought them in England, it is the cheapest place to find them.
    Otherwise, it begins to have second-hand.
    I love them!
    No default for that price, you can find more equilibrated! 10 everywhere!
