    I wish a monitoring system for my home studio to replace my hi-fi PC 2.1 aging and inappropriate. with a very limited budget, I turned to the entry level and I was not disappointed with my choice.

    SOUNDS

    the system to a good frequency response, though can powerfully in low. it worries that easily adjusted thanks to the bass and tremble knobs on the main speaker (right)

    sound makes really good mix wanted, the stereo image is good overall (outside environment gives the impression that the left speaker is stronger than the right one, but it is a little fault)

    as a whole, the system to a good momentum, but I appreciate it increased the volume to be at the heart of my mix.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about three weeks and I'm completely satisfied.

    before my purchase I made a comparison of different systems in this range, it is ultimately the seller helped me finalize my choice.

    what I love most:
    -The sound quality for this price is quite exceptional.
    -The ability to control midrange and treble, it will correct the excess low
    -The price, truly fit.
    -The design that fits perfectly in my studio environment

    what I like least:
    Slightly too low, the present
    It feel like a stereo image slightly to the left (but as said above, the external environment plays heavily on this parameter)


    I would do this choice without hesitation.
    a great product that we offer today hercules, as well to the mix (DJ) for home-studio recording.

    What characteristics have motivated your choice?

    I search for cheap studio monitors. I read the article AudioFanzine and I thought why not ... Without great expectations at the outset.

    For what purpose?

    computer music, listening and equalization, audio processing ...

    What amp / What configuration? ...

    No amp, they are active. Sound Card: TC Electronic Desktop 6 konnekt

    SOUNDS

    The frequency curve is sufficiently neutral?

    Oh yes then. Well do not ask the moon for that price, but they do their jobs, just maybe a little more on the bass, but really true monitor speakers and the price is incredible.

    The stereo image is good?

    Yes, as soon as the investment is when......

    The stereo image is good?

    Yes, as soon as the investment is when respected, good stereo image.

    The sound is clear and precise across the spectrum?

    There is a slight bump in the low to 100 Hz, but nothing binding.

    The dynamics are respected? ...

    These speakers have a good dynamic. They are 20 Watts RMS and sends its serious, good reserve.

    OVERALL OPINION

    How long have you been using?

    For about a year and my mixes have really made a leap forward.

    What is so special that you like most and least?

    As:
    Their neutralitées, they allow a good job and the bass and treble settings on the front of the main speaker.

    Minimum:
    The headphone jack is useless?? not understand ...
    Maybe XLR inputs .. (But I nitpick because, as the price lol)

    Did you try many other models before buying it?

    Many models but yes HIFI speakers! It has nothing to do, the goal is not the same. Between listening to music in her living room and make it in his home studio, it is not comparable.

    How do you rate the quality / price?

    The value for money is excellent especially as the purely audio skins, their quality manufacturing and quite remarkable.

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

    I quite referrais this choice without hesitation.

    (Let's say the only fault I could find but unfortunately, this fault find on almost all speakers of this type, regardless of their price, it is the treatment of basses, for this, it will add a subwoofer.)

    I had to powered monitor neutral and active at low cost in addition to a home studio. This model Hercules, discovered at a friend gave me the mission possible, I never thought of the French name and at that price, for me this brand sold only cheap PC speakers.
    So, with no concessions, they are real monitors.
    Amplified to 40 Watts RMS given, pushed to 80 peak, good storage place.

    SOUNDS

    This is the surprise of the first listen, neutral to perfection, clarity, precision, all worthy of big brands, in fact they are not made for anything other than the Monitoring! Ideal stereo 2 x 20 Watts, flawless.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I know last year, views and discoveries in Studio.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I know last year, views and discoveries in Studio.
    Yes, many tried and used, much more expensive.
    The most: their neutrality and clarity that rank directly in real pregnant Monitor, the price which is often two to three times higher for this result, the look, because they are very nice and fit in all types of studio Pro or not, the impression of solidity and reliability also by design (materials), the front interface with volume, tone separately, For IN, the grafted headphone that cuts the speakers not very useful but this, the light of activity.

    Cons: Not really, for me Hercules had to make concessions to provide quality at this price, no USB, input optical, XLR, but if you have a good sound interface or console, and the RCA JACKS enough and it is not the least, I advise them to budget and for other good,
    same excellent equipment.
    Be careful not to expect to use these speakers for a function other, are not pregnant or PA HI FI, go: mix in Pro listen :)
    Yes or no further, without hesitation, this is a very good choice to be redone.
