Usage is Home Studio, the critters to a Motu 828 MkII complter DP4.11 and a small Ibook G3 / 600Mhz running jaguar ... To this must be added various hardware fates produce Sound ... Not wishing to take my head with the configuration of the trio amp / speaker / Cables, I wanted the active, small but quite powerful, especially blinds ...

Trs are well finished, quite small but not too much, and psent a good weight, that's reassuring
(7 kg for the approximate size of an A4 sheet!)

Events in the rear (especially as they are for small installations) and the 64 Hz limit rponse while competing in the same range of approaching 40 Hz are the limits of these smaller monitors. In practice, these limitations are flying in exploded ...

Finally the price extremely aggressive in this season leaves no doubt, sr APRS costs far ...

SOUNDS

The neutrality? difficult to say again, I lack of references I would have a little more hours will cost you, so here I would tell you more later ...

Stereo image is good, although I am not yet convinced of the positioning of my monitors ... we must do better.

The sound is clear, trs prcis, treble flexible, crystalline, and not tired, beautiful mdiums can be actually a little behind as pointed out an article in Recording, are of low finished, never blurred DPIT the rear vents (they are currently places about 50 cm from the wall, lgrement diagonally).

The spectrum broad enough, the Reserved dynamic is impressive for such a MODEL, and the power trs than enough. I have used in a space of 15 m2, (sub-slope!) CD with some known by heart and chosen for their stamps, and finally with a GooveBox electric guitar .... I never push the master volume of more than half ... both monitors up to them ... I also play the CD is live on both monitors and tr s low rgime that trs high level they are excellent ... and keep all their ... DEFINITIONS

Although trs sr high level should not be afraid of vibrations and it has plutt that lined the cost but it must be the work I undertake is I d mnage my studio ... For me it will be a low cost rgime time pushing others To verify the proper maintenance of the mix ... In fact I intend to use it also to try to catch and grind my sounds ...

OVERALL OPINION

APRS 4 hours testing the house they do not dcoivent me one second, the other models, I do not think even more ...

Use in my home studio, dj is the hardware of a level ... An extraordinary indcent I redcouvre my mix (and it's not flattering) and my records! ! And ... trs than enough power ...

Frankly, if c'tait again, I resigned without rflchir, even at full price!

I return APRS 2 months of use: the verdict does not change, these are trs TAPCO monitors delicious ...

The neutrality I can talk now is to go, no worries of ct-l ... strength but also for large volumes or fans of the COST trs high level I deprecated at the same time ... this is not done to liven up your evenings dancing ... I especially deprecated because of the masking trs fast (high rgime) treble . This is the real limit I find them, it is essential to position itself in the triangle of acute COST otherwise tend fly ... Last BMOL small, switches the rear is pnible ...

These little things as they are great, I love ...
