Value For Money : Excellent
For CHARACTERISTICS, I refer you to the manufacturer's website.

Basically j'tais party for Fostex PM-1, but when I arrived at the store, the salesman had neither stock nor on order! So I cost more tips and I stopped on a.

I prcise Premire that these are my monitoring speakers, and that I intended to use a mix composed of pop / rock (guitar / bass / drums / cello).

Used with a PC, an M-Audio FW410, a console Phonic MM1002. The console is just because it's more convenient, or you can directly connect derrire the sound card.

Ah yes, the event is bass-reflex front, which is when prfrable not like me too much space ("/> (" /> and that ballast up against a wall .. .

SOUNDS

As for the rponse in frquence it looks to me plutt neutral, except in serious or low-mdium: they are forward, not trs pr cis. That said I think it is also largely to the placement on my desk, I have not much space and I put the 10cm of the wall in a corner ... Not good for serious frquences.
On the rest of the spectrum has seemed trs trs correct and balance. Compared with the Tapco S5 for example, acute and mdiums accentus are much less and the sound is more homogne, IMHO.

The image seemed stro trs good, but compare my old speakers (Multimedia + satellite box, yuck) could hardly do worse! So I can not say too much what they are worth in this area from others.

OVERALL OPINION

I use them recently and I'm currently not. I have not yet worked with for now.

Assets:
- SETTING THE tweeter level,-1dB,-2dB, 0, +1 dB to 2kHz
- The gain knob Crant prcis to rgler two speakers Manir same.
- The curve is identical frequency drives trs same low volume, which is rarely the case on the walls of this range. However much the sound down, it was always the bass and the bass drum, all trs prcis!

Cons:
- SETTING THE gain and switch on / off the rear, as is often the case with this type of product
- Too low / high mdium

I find the report qualitprix excellent (230 euros / piece), and I do it again this choice without hsiter! J'espre ending for power have a little more room to optimize the investment and limit the extra serious.
