M-Audio AV 20
I use them mainly for listening to music on my PC ...
Pop, Rock, Jazz, Blues ...


Sounds just right for the price (I've had to € 49!). Well above my old PC kit 2.0 to 30 €.
Well-defined stereo image (I discover the same sounds on recordings that I thought I knew by heart ...).
For power, do not dream too much of course, but there are still a bit before saturation.
There are low, but it does not boom, boom ... of course!
For all this, there must be a little patient required settings in the equalizer (standard curve a bit flat) and (I thought it was a fault but apparently it happened to others) in balance. The left lane is actually anemic compared to the right!

Update of 24/06/2009: I do was not realized immediately but good enough to hear the difference between the original CD and MP3 encoding even the highest quality!
Update of 20/07/2009: I spoke too quickly ... The lack of balance was not related to HP but in my system. I just did a complete reinstallation and failure no longer appears! I listen to my old kit that I gave to my mother, as the gain is huge ... I add a point!


So generally satisfied, even if I wanted to "throw" at the beginning ...
I am guitarist and therefore accustomed to long hours to pay an amp ... The need to spend time on these forums to get satisfying sound did not bother me ...
Quality / price ratio rather good. Anyway to € 49. At 89 it may be another story ...
Update of 20/07/2009: after 2 months of daily listening, I do not regret my purchase at all ...
Update from 28/09/2009: material HS, SAV back ... Angry and frustrated, more music ...
Standard exchange ... New material performs better than the first! So be careful, obviously not regular production niveu quality components ...

- What technical specifications motivated your choice?
I trust the brand. The report price is gnralement good quality for an amateur. No headphone jack or audio input, or control of balance ... Reduces the size, price and discreet design.

- For what purpose?
as they say in the brochure, use multimedia and MIX with BCD3000 to start tinkering on and trackers synthtiseurs + + squenceurs free ... its large electro nag.

- What amp / What configuration? ...
amplified speakers connected directly to card M-Audio Delta 44 and dual core desktop PC.


- The curve frequency drives is it neutral enough?
It seemed that there was at dpart mdiums too high / treble but I got used to it after a few days.

- Stereo image is good?
No! the MODEL I had the left speaker clearly stronger than the right (the one with the amp).

- The sound is clear and prcis across the spectrum?
Either, always the right speaker (but is it dfectueuse?), Saturates and grsille of certain sounds: piano notes of Premire supported a Strings of Life measures by Francesco Tristano are jou horrible. Otherwise, the sound is enjoyable and clear plutt with other styles of music tests (Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, Electro, Disco ..). The bass is a little absent, but their record is pretty good.

- The dynamic is it respect?
rendering is given pchu as the speaker size.


- How long have you use it?
3-4 days, I have returned to the store because of the problem on certain sounds and Stereo.

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
NO. I have a YAMAHA HIFI E200, SEINNHEISER HD215 headphones and a rotten CREATIVE 5.1 ​​kit, which serves more e gure that the Tv.

- With the exprience, you do again this choice? ...
NO, j'tais interested by the size and price of these speakers but I am by the quality of the product I reu. I can not say whether it is the copy I reu dfectueux is a default or design. When in doubt, I will avoid to order again and try the MODEL suprieur, the M-AUDIO AV40.
