Fostex PM0.5 mkII
- What technical specifications have motivated your choice?

The brand, price vents in facade, the possibility of buying the sub later.

- For what purpose?

Home Studio

- What amp / What configuration ...?

Pice 10-15m, Presonus Firepod, PC.


The sound seems really me.
I compar quickly with Prodipe and Krk which were nearly the same low price.
I immediately found that Fostex had a much better definition and greater clarity in the high midrange / treble. I had my M-Audio BX5A c'tait much less and I even compar l o I work with PM1 mkII (size above) and I found the most rough PM1 .dropoff window on the other hand is on is more bass.
I have purchased yesterday so I have no recoil but for now it is impeccable.


I had M Audio BX5a before and they made me.
I'm a drummer and what kind of speaker suffers when mixing intensively bass and bass drums.
All these little speakers are not really made for a.
The intressantes or 0.5 are is that you can add the 10 "subwoofer and sub filter allows low frequencies dlguer satellites, so you can mix what is wants as long as you want without the risk of damaging the woofers.
If the subwoofer is managed to the pair of speakers, all must be really not bad.
I will put my day notice if I take my sub.

I was looking for small Nearfield active that I can take a chance on site.
Listening to recordings and / or direct monitoring (connected to Yamaha AW 1600 for rent recording). In parallle with Sony MDR. Deuxime studio costs. These monitors are built to trssrieusement exudes solidity. Branding: APRS costs in a radio studio in Belgium and also in the reputable Fostex Contents of speakers. Power 35 w 35 w severe acute.


These monitors are prcis amazement to their size and price. A mons a sense of the strengths is the quality of acute soft and fine time. The mdium is warm without being
behind. The serious, compared to 0.5 pm MODEL former, the bass is much better CONTRL ct rough and disappeared. Trs good job for HP by 13 cm. Be careful as always to the investment and management of low otherwise it ensures the cata ... Also has to be careful in terms of cost. With careful placement of the sound image is the best I've heard in this range of hardware. The depth of the image is raliste the cost of a trio of Arab Turkish music as well as a set of acoustic jazz. For large formations trs good with sound Decca Tree. For clarity's all there and the powerful is more than sufficient. I mix about 70 dB, so no need to over 35 watts to 35 PM. Dynamics goes well, but do not forget the size of Systm and avoid to ask the dynamics of monsters like ATC or Genelec very big ... However for a style Bass Heavy, the PM sub is not a luxury. Last points, no breath sounds or lighting.


I possde these speakers for a month with a week's break-in pink noise. As is their quality of costs, they are soft and prcises, this award is really thundering. Least, the speakers unprotected membrane ... Before buying the hardware and j'coute also and especially the view of collgues. My choice was made APRS costs in a Belgian radio station which broadcast a recording of my organ. I find this a mild neutral the opposite of "tchac-boom" often li no small cost Chres. For the price quality ratio is OK. I would do this choice for this type of speaker, but the main monitor, I go to JBL.

Having my house, only way to broadcast sound, my PC, I wanted to buy a pair of powered speakers, since I already had a sound card of a certain quality (ESI Quatafire 610). I add that my use is however not oriented monitoring, or else in a very succinct. These speakers are multi-functional for me, both for listening to music, as to amplify a midi keyboard from time to time, and work on sound, once in a while too. I am not a professional sound. However, as professor of music, music is my field of work. These speakers are installed on my desk, "to tear" and not in an area suitable. The features that have motivated my choice are mainly the size (5 inches), the events at the front and the price.


The sound reproduction, I am quite satisfied. Especially when you just a little rotten multimedia speakers. We are rediscovering their CD while enjoying the work of technicians and sound engineers who have achieved. In terms of accuracy, the stereo and dynamics, it is perfect for me, given my requirements for an amateur. Anyway, in this price range, it is useless to hope to find the pearl. I just have problems with resonances of their bad positioning and the room not suitable, but I accommodates. The speakers are not to blame. Since I have, I took great pleasure in listening to music of all styles. Everything is set, clear, never aggressive (in any case never listen very hard ...).


I use them for two months now. No worries to report. Before acquiring them, I first listen to other models in the same range, including Yamaha HS50 (good but not enough bass) and Prodipe Pro5 (its too "card" for my taste). The Fostex seemed so achieve the best balance for my needs. I do not know what would think "someone who knows", but I would do this election if necessary.

Fostex PM0.5 mkII
First, I want to say that I think is very modest: I am not an expert speaker or technology in general (far from it!).

I bought these speakers to mix my compositions. This is my first pregnant monithoring. This changes the pc speakers! I also listen to some music but it's not my primary use. I had a budget of 300 euros for the pair.


For neutrality, the result is really satisfying. Rendering the bass and midrange sounds very good. Maybe the highs are slightly less accurate ... But it's really light. It is time that the ears become accustomed.

But really mean all the details and sound events. For small speakers, it seems very good.


I work with for one week every day. I have several pieces and mix the result is very compelling.
I tried a few other models before buying, but at the price / quality ratio, they seem unbeatable. For my use, I have no complaints.
The best: the sound, the strength of manufacturing.
The least: the lack of protection of the membranes actually (I watch my cats, night and day).
I would do that choice again!
