stompboxjon's review"Nice sound to be so small"

M-Audio AV 40 V2
The M-Audio AV 40 V2 are very inexpensive and small. They cost 150 USD for the pair of them and they are powered 20 watt monitors with a 4” sub and ¾” tweeters. If you are on a tight budget but still need some good monitors to get a good mix with then this will be your best option. Getting any set of monitors cheaper than this will be hard to find and you mine as well get a pair of headphones then . I have used many monitors over the years and heard some really bad ones, mainly the ones that are under 200 dollars for a pair have been awful, but the AV 40 monitors proved me wrong on that.


I was using these monitors back in July, they sound is very clean. I don’t suggest doing your main mixing in them though, they are more of a great set of reference monitors or just some speakers for general listening to music with. I was really surprised that M-Audio put these out for this price because I feel like they are about 75 dollars under priced.


The monitors have a on and off switch on them and volume controls with a 1/8 output for headphones. These monitors are small in size and the sound does not go really loud but it is very clear. If you have a small workspace these will be perfect for your small desk or workspace. They take up virtually no room and give you a great sound to reference your mix with.

The great part of using the AV 40 monitors is that they are Magnetic shielded and can be close to your computer monitor or screen. With them being such smaller monitors you wouldn’t want to have to have them yards away from your ears and set up, with this Magnetic Shield you can have them right beside your screen or TV and not have to worry about it damaging your TV or Screens appearance or colors.

I wanted a pair "Nomad", that is to say, light and cheap.



Good sound clarity, fairly neutral with sufficient power.

The only downside and not least, sorely lacking in bass. Even with the bass boost ...

So when I mix with this pair, and I listen to the record on the HIFI or any other device: Too low in the mix.

So I correct with all public headphones with good bass exacerbated to be sure not to be in error.


For the price, Yes I would buy this again for use as I do (transportable).

What characteristics have motivated your choice?

I was looking for speakers at a good value for money, they were of the same brand as the majority of my gear, and cheap

For what purpose?

Home studio, plugged into an external sound card Fast Track Ultra M-Audio


No problem with the bass for me (which seems to be their major fault) but I do not really have a basis for comparison.
Ditto for the dynamics, it suits me, as the stereo image.

The sound is clear and reproduces well the way I mix the song


I use them for almost 15 days in an intensive way and I like that they make the stereo image.
Not particularly bad point but for now these are the first studio monitors I buy

The quality / price is what attracted me at first and with hindsight (right, 15 days ... ^ ^) I would do this choice

But I think it's because I'm pretty new at this but I had problems of connections: I first tried in CAR then TRS stereo and the sound does not come out in stereo ... the final two mono jacks out of my leave of a fast track to the speaker and the other Left Right.
Since everything works!
