sw80's review"They have an aux input, but not for me"

M-Audio AV 30
The M-Audio AV 30’s are very inexpensive. They have 3 inch woofers, and ¾ inch dome tweeters. This are not the type of monitors that are going to give you a big loud sound and you will not be able to get a studio quality mix out of them but they could be used for a extra pair of reference monitors. They have a 3.5mm headphone outputs and stereo aux input so you can listen to your MP3 player or other audio source right directly into them.


The frequency range of these monitors is 90 Hz to 20 kHz. These speakers do not take up much room and can be used for multiple purposes. I do not recommend these to be your main set of production or mixing monitors because they just do not have a clean enough low end to mix your songs in. But if you are looking for a pair of reference monitors that can be used for multiple things these are perfect.


They are very inexpensive and have the proper connections to work with other gear. They are small and can be moved easily. These are the perfect monitors to hook up to video game systems as well with the aux input connection. Most speakers/monitors do not have this input so that is a plus with the AV 30’s.
These particular monitors are not for me though, I do not feel they are loud enough or have enough low end for me to use at all. I used them for a few months as a pair of back road monitors but I didn’t ever use them and ended up selling them. They are not bad, but not made for music production or mixing. They are fun and great to listen to music in though and that is what I recommend them for. The distortion is pretty low in these though for them to be in this price range.

The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30’s are a set of studio/computer speakers. They seem to be primarily made for use with a lap top since they’re semi-portable, but can be used with any computer. Of course you can use them for whatever you wish, but computer use seems to be the main aim for them. The speakers have RCA connections in the back of one of them, as a speaker wire connects the two of them together. The speakers each have 15 watts of power and have 3” sub woofers. They’re not the loudest at all, but are suitable enough for editing purposes. In my opinion, they’re best for editing on the go or as a C set of speakers to check mixes against other pairs of monitors…


The sound of the M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 isn’t anything too impressive, but they don’t sound terrible and definitely get the idea across enough for editing purposes. They’re fine for tuning vocals and the like, but count mixing out with these as they just don’t have the fullness in sound for it. Again, I’d use them to check mixes against, but wouldn’t trust them for mixing. Considering their size and price, they sound is overall not bad…


If you want a super cheap set of studio speakers for use on the go or as an extra set, the M-Audio Studiophile AV 30’s are worth looking at. Only because of their super low price do they get a serious look, as they’re definitely not proper studio monitors and I wouldn’t use them as your mains in any situation. The perfect use for these would be for on the go use with your lap top for editing on the run. The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 ‘s don’t sound bad at all for the price, so check them out if you’re in need of an extra set…

moustic02's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good material"

M-Audio AV 30
Wishing to buy a pair of quality speakers, I found a web site such equipment at discount prices and really I do not regret it.
I use it for mixing files recorded in monitoring but also to listen to music on my PC.


I do not have an ear too refined to meet the frequency curves and other technical data but I find these versatile monitor speakers.
Maybe the purists will not have the same opinions as me '


I bought these active speakers there about 3 years and am not about to part with it, I said I checked the reviews that were pretty good and that's what made me decide to the acquire.
Good value for money ... I do it again this choice without hesitation!

M-Audio AV 30
- Reduces Price and size, amplified speakers, design lgant
- Use Amateur +: court my (many) prcis MP3 sound quality and good to do a little home studio and mix my models with a minimum REFERENCE reliable, not too much clutter office if my girlfriend will kill me!
- Basic use: laptop, sound card intgre classic


- The equilibrated pchent even if a little low, if you push the volume, bass s'crasent quickly and lose their roundness. Cel-words, it is quite normal for speakers of this size (and thus price).
- Stereo Trs good image. This is one of the main strengths of these speakers. We clearly see the diffrence with multimedia speakers public.
- Clear and prcis, part to the low volume lev (see above).
- Good overall dynamic


Professional mixing refrain
Amateur audiophile, these speakers are for you!

- I have been using for about 1 month.
- What I prfre: Stereo image precision and sound.
- What I ENTSO: the potential limit of low volume suprieur. Anyway, in a pice Reduces size, no need to push the volume too much non-plus. In fact, it is meant Reduces volume dtails more music ...
- These are my speakers Premire type "monitoring", but I am a musician for quite some years ... My leaves are the Difference!
- Trs good quality-price ratio (77 Thomann.de at the time of my purchase!). It is - say less than a public Systm!
- With the same budget and the same goals of use, I would do without hsiter the same choice.
