ericthegreat's review"big sounding monitors"

M-Audio BX8
The Adam M audio Studiophile Bx8’s are a set of professional studio monitors. They are near field monitors, which make them great for mixing. They have a crisp sound quality while still maintaining a full sound all across the frequency spectrum. They are powered monitors, which means you don't need an external amplifier to use them. These are a great set of monitors for the advanced home or professional studio.


The projected from these monitors are full and rich, and won't color your sound. This means they portray a neutral sound that doesn't favor any frequency range. This is what makes them so great for mixing, as the mixes I get on these monitors usually will transfer to other speakers quite well. For a rather small set of monitors, these deliver a huge sound that covers the full range of frequencies. The dynamics are accurate and it is great to know that I am getting a full, accurate sound while I am mixing these.


I've been using the Bx8’s studio monitors for about a year and they have become one of my favorite pairs of studio monitors for not only mixing, but for general listening and tracking as well. I find that I get a true sound from these monitors, without any coloration. This makes me happy when I mix because I know that when I play the mix over my iPod headphones or in my car, that it will sound good there too, which is huge when it comes to studio and mixing monitors. The price isn't aimed for the budget home studio owner, but if you are serious are building a professional studio or an advanced home studio, these are a great candidate for your studio. Compared to some monitors these are a fair price, but still not viable for most home studio owners. All in all, I would recommend these to those interested in high quality studio monitors.

The M-Audio Studiophile BX8s are large studio monitors with a big sound and small price. I have used them mostly to mix on and since they are pretty big, they project a pretty full overall sound. They are self powered monitors which is nice because it required no external power source.


The have found that the BX8s are quite full sounding and cover a lot of low end and is full throughout the entire frequency spectrum. The stereo image is beyond satisfactory and these won't color your sound too much, meaning they project an accurate portrayal of what you playing through them. This is essential in a set of monitors so that it sound good on all speakers and not just your monitors. The overall sound is full and clean ranging across the spectrum but although I do like the sound of the monitors, the aren't the best or most accurate monitors I have ever heard, but they do sound good and is aimed at the home studio owner, rather than the working professional.


I first used these monitors about four years ago and I immediately like the response these give off. They are large, but are easy to move around and give off a full and crisp signal. Since it won't color your sound, these are good for mixing for those looking for a good deal on studio monitors as they are dirt cheap for monitors that sound this full. Comparing to the step down for these, the M-Audio BX5s, these will only cost a little bit more but will project a much wider frequency range response. This being said I would recommend spending the extra money and get these if you are trying to decide between these and the BX5s. In this case the sound quality difference and overall fullness of these monitors is worth the price difference over the BX5s. Overall these are a great set of monitors ideal for the home studio.

These are my 1st set of monitors, but they have Accustic space control and a great low end range. You really have a uncolored, clear and percies representation of what you will here on another system.

Price paid: $299 USD


Great I don't have any complants. Matter of fact they are so loud and clear i can't even use them to their full potential since I live in an Apartment.


So far so good, no problems yet I have them for about 6months and use them on a 4-6 hr daily bases.

I love my monitors, and for the price you can't get a better set.

M-Audio speakers are controversial trs, trs n'tant not yet known and M-Audio "beginners" in this area. So I wanted to form my own opinion by going cost the BX-8.
The use I make is total, ie the components to the final mix, as well as listening to music or watch a DVD. This silent important for me to have speakers with a sound "coutable" a little but not too flattering, not to distort the mix. (And not too Chres ... :-)
My config: PC, soundcard Aardvark Direct Pro Q10. (More dtails in my profile)

These are bi-amplified speakers, an amp per channel.
Power: 65 W
Boomer 8 ", 1" tweeter
Rponse: 37 Hz - 20 kHz
Frquence of sparation woofer / tweeter: 1.8 kHz
S / N ratio:> 100 dB over BP
Switches to qualisation
Input Connectors: XLR or jack of your choice, or not symtrique


Lgrement boost curve in the lower, although subtle and prcises. Just know and take into account the mix. The rest of the bandwidth remains flat. The switches are used to adjust the rear, according to the gots, rponse curve, allowing a more varied speakers.
Stereo image excellent for the price ...
Finally, a good depth of sound, nuances transmitted accurately.


Ending for one month of use, and I never get tired.
They have a lot of potential, which I think will ensure their success.
Cot design, the finish is impeccable. They seem trs robust priori (I have not tried to bring down ...)
These speakers have nothing to envy or Event Berhinger. Of Genelec I say no ... but it hurts to portefeille!
Only small BMOL: not found many places o costs.
In short, an excellent qualitprix, which does not dcevra.
