"Small, powerful monitors"

M-Audio BX5Publié le 05/25/12 à 00:37
I've owned my pair of M-Audio BX5 Studio Monitors for several years, and I actually initially received them as a gift for helping record a local band. These monitors feature a 5-inch woofer, a 1-inch tweeter, a sub-frequency port in the back, and it has inputs for both XLR and TRS line (1/4 inch). The monitors have a power switch and a volume control on the back, although I would recommend keeping the volume at max, and controlling the output volume from the computer audio hardware. These monitors have no screen or mesh on the front, which makes for clearer sounds, but they can be accidentally damaged if not careful. For example, the covering on the tweeter was accidentally pressed in......

I've owned my pair of M-Audio BX5 Studio Monitors for several years, and I actually initially received them as a gift for helping record a local band.

The monitors have a power switch and a volume control on the back, although I would recommend keeping the volume at max, and controlling the output volume from the computer audio hardware. These monitors have no screen or mesh on the front, which makes for clearer sounds, but they can be accidentally damaged if not careful. For example, the covering on the tweeter was accidentally pressed in once during transport. You can definitely see the woofer moving during louder recording sessions.

There are also EQ and acoustic spacing controls on the back: one for bass control, one for treble, one for mid, and the one for acoustic spacing (placement near walls). This allows for fine tuning of the response of the speakers directly, which is certainly necessary.

SOUNDS

The sounds from these monitors has been wonderful, and I have never felt the need to replace them. The speakers are solid, I've never heard them crack during louder volumes. If extreme bass response is necessary, you may need to supplement these speakers with a subwoofer. I find that when I'm specifically listening to bass guitar tracks, I'll need to put on my headphones to get a better sound. But if I'm listening to a mix overall, I can certainly hear the bass and kick drums fine.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, these are great medium sized studio monitors, made by a reputable professional audio company, that I would recommend to anyone. They are simple, and they simply get the job done. Even if you are not into professional audio and recording work, these monitors still sound great and are pretty affordable.

The M-Audio Studiophile BX5s were the first set of studio monitors I got when I was building my first project studio. I got them because they are small and easy to move from place to place, as I was doing recording on the go a bit at the time. It is also nice that these are self powered as it doesn't need a separate power amp.

SOUNDS

I have used these for mixing as well as monitoring during tracking. It works better on the latter because since they are pretty small they don't cover all of the low end you would look for in mixing monitors. That being said, the overall sound of these is good and great for listening to music on or listening back to mixes on. Also great to use when A/Bing......

That being said, the overall sound of these is good and great for listening to music on or listening back to mixes on. Also great to use when A/Bing mixes. The sound is clear although these probably aren't suitable for serious mixing because of their small size.

OVERALL OPINION

I got a pair of M-Audio Studiophile BX5s about six years ago and have since upgraded. In general I like the sound of these, but since it lacks overall fullness and low end definition, they aren't great for mixing. The price is very cheap which makes it an attractive option. While I like these, I would probably recommend the M-Audio BX8s, which is the step up from these, because while they are a bit more expensive, they are larger and cover a wider frequency spectrum. At this point, I wouldn't use these to mix on because I have upgraded to Mackie HR824s and Yamaha NS-10ms which work great for mixing for me. A benefit of these being as small as they are is that they are easy to move, which was a big plus for me. All in all, these are good sounding speakers for the small home studio and for those on a budget.

Features very adequate in the circumstances where I use them.
Studio monitor use.
I find them powerful enough é with a sound that does not need editing: FLAT equalizer

SOUNDS

Neutrality of the curve: yes, in my opinion.
Very good stereo image, its highly directional!
I love the precision of the sound.

OVERALL OPINION

I use these monitors for three days and they are the first monitors I buy. Very good price indeed, considering the quality! Unfortunately I was not so much to provide comparison.
I'm still looking flaws ... I have not had the opportunity to "grow" a little, just to see if the accuracy is still there.

If I have the same budget to spend it is clear that I would do this choice.
