    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I tried a lot of stuff before hand that beats the gnlec and Dynaudio, I had not found happiness grd then I pulled into sth I could buy, and Fostex appeared to st as the most convincing, I am very happy tjs they not send a killer but will largely, I let the same sometimes surprised by the quality of the bass. not less than the most !!!, with the experience I think I keep a good memory of my First coutes true, but I'd be happy to have a wider distribution, they st a lil bit small (big sisters 1 st and 2 a bit above)

    Fostex PM0.5 Active Studio Monitors

    Fostex PM0.5Published on 08/04/04 at 15:00
    I bought these speakers (pair) from Cookes Band Instruments, Norwich, UK. I was looking for active monitoring speakers to put a Line6 POD2.3 through. I was advised to listen to these speakers, due to their flat response, and good all-round sound. I tried them, and they did what I wnted them to do.
    Cost: £249.00

    The sound is natural. The bass is tight, yet smooth, with a strong sense of clarity. The bass parts in music are easily audible. The mid frequencies are smooth and well balanced, it is also extremely clear. The treble is crisp, but is also just rounded at the very top end, as not to be annoying, or obtrusive.

    There is great soundstaging, and amazing detail in the stereo field.
    The overall sound is very warm, and smooth, but highly detailed. A great sound.
    Clean POD sounds, are awesome.

    There could have been more connections at the back, this would allow me to connect devices more easily, but 1/4" TRS jack is acceptable.

    There is a separate volume on each speaker, wih makes it hard o get the same volume on each, but careful twiddling will sort it out. The volume could have been on the front, to make life easier.

    The units seem incredibly robust. Everything looks tight, and well held. The control is solid. There is no rattling at higher volumes.

    These speakers are a must to listen to, if your on a budget of £250. They sound absoultely amazing. If your going to mix music, or play POD, or other type units through them, then these are the thing.
    Warm, clean, tight, and detailed, awesome!

    I bought these speakers because I needed to powered speakers, connect the output of DIGI O1, to the mix of films. I completed a feature film on it, listening to (very) nearby.
    I admit that the price I was very motivated when I purchase an urgent need to listen properly and flat.

    SOUNDS

    The bass are present, with two bass reflex ports on the front. During a mix, I deliberately cut out the bass EQ for fear that they not go on listening to a TV ... In fact, you have to do with the fact that PM 05 is the side of generous.
    The stereo image is very precise, careful placement and alignemnt. It can be fatal!

    The entire spectrum is sharp and clear ... Always gaffe placement, careful to have the tweeters at ear height.
    In terms of dynamics, no worries, it pummeled. Of course, remember that they are listening proximity is not meant to sound to a room. But sitting in front of the speakers, we take what is in your ears!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought them last July.
    What I like most is that they develop the dynamics and overall sound, the whole course of their reported sales prices.
    I already worked on Genelec 1030, but hey it's not the same price and they are flatter at the low. However, I remain very satisfied.
    In my opinion, the price / quality ratio is the best argument for these speakers. To start developing a home studio on a tight budget without compromising on quality, they seem ideal. In addition to their small size allows them to integrate easily into a small space and thus be able to offer a placement, orientation nickel to the listener.

    I put 9 / 10, because perfection does not exist and then because the price / quality ratio is tip top ...

    stereo image is very good to me! biensur the site has a very important role
    For my part it took me one week before placing them correctly!
    ear height was slightly inclined angle 60 "+ view" from the point of listening and possible on squares of rubber to avoid any bridge and resonates with my
    "Office" I have a room dedicated to his trap with low and with no resonance which helps considerably, I started my studio daillieur by her! revenont to 0.5 pmp
    the sound is quite pleasant, even my taste too much "attention to your mix" we must know them
    I personally find them quite dynamic
    should not the price oublierle Worthy of its

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use them for 2 months in addition to EV SENTRY 100A
    This is the most unpleasant it was the bump on the bottom which makes the low medium
    difficult to hear I think fostex'll have been able to correct this problem but its still good
    correct for the price
    size was an important factor for me "to move"
    I mix an album, complete with the EV SENTRY 100, and I'm very satisfied
    no surprises!
    we must not hope to work with the lower spectrum !!!!!!!
    I find them more right than the YAMAHA MSP5 and warmer than MACKY
    I would not recommend crossing the MSP5 to mix! lol

    report quality price is very good in fact!
    must work with a aprendre as with all the others listened
    I go into the studio and bcp Croy me all listen to even the most expensive are different with their quality and default
    the ideal was to work with a monitoring system that we know well and especially well adjusted!
    the pm0.5 are small and cheap Look at the correct
    I feel this choice problem remake

The other addition to these speakers, c is that they are still a fairly standard sound be used to listen to everything and no matter what, that n is not the case KRK, (which can be pearls to the mix, j though I doubt, and are absolutely disgusting al listening).

    PM hold the road even at high levels (c is to be found also that the low and that we can work on it). They render very well sound a potato from the half power.

    J have had time to hear my own productions (electronic) made to these forums in other conditions, "wall", sound system, on Tapco, of Krk, the yamaha, the various stereo), and it holds the road really.

    C IS THE SPEAKER AS YOU WILL FIND THE headphones always people who TROLLENT. C The real question is whether the material has defects "assimilated", circumvented, or not. PM, yes, you can ignore. Now the rest of what we have to ask is c "they are pleasant despite its defects." I found, yes, that I have heard the speakers more enjoyable. But the result is. It knocks at me, it knocks over a PA system.

    I would do this choice in 2005, currently, in 2008 j opt for more of a little more generous in the bass a little more pleasant for the life of every day. But now that I know I will not let go of citot.

    I suppose if i wanted to be fussy the power switch could be at the front to save me leaning over them to turn them on and off, but this is a rarity!

    Price paid: £250

    SOUNDS

    The sound quality is incredible for the price, the best that i have heard in the price range, very crisp and clear with a solid low-end!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I love these little things but a bit of silver finishing on the cone or something would have been nice to make them look more sleek!
