  • A front volume control can be found on the left speaker to give them more appeal to people who may be using PCs to watch movies or play games, and the 1/8” stereo headphone output makes is very convenient to get a more localised sound
  • I use these with a sound desk which came in at less than £50, and there is no issue with sound

      The celebrated audio equipment company M-Audio’s Studiophile AV-40 studio monitors are the mid-range model, providing 40 watts of power between the two cabinets, in compact design. An auxillary input and stereo headphone output are provided one these speakers, which boast an excellent frequency response of around 85Hz (with use of an industry-leading bass-boost button) to full 20kHz, and a good signal-to-noise ratio of >90dB. Not many other models in the price range provide this

      ratio. Nice features include a blue LED-ringed volume knob and anti-slip pads on the bottom of the cabinets which help prevent scratching.

      These monitors have clearly been designed with entertainment and commercial media in mind, with no need to have a professional studio space to enjoy them. A front volume control can be found on the left speaker to give them more appeal to people who may be using PCs to watch movies or play games, and the 1/8” stereo headphone output makes is very convenient to get a more localised sound. With use of the 1/8” stereo auxillary input it is very easy to plug them directly into a computer, but with use of even the cheapest of external sound cards sound and reliability are greatly improved.

      I use these with a sound desk which came in at less than £50, and there is no issue with sound. They provide clear,

      crisp, sound and with use of the handy, popular, bass-boost switch at the back of the left speaker the full range of bass provided by any popular music or conventional ambient movie/game sound can be appreciated. Even without this though, the frequency response is second to none in the large selection of mid-range monitors.

      If you try to find speakers with a wider frequency response and better signal-to-noise ratio you will discover there is a massive gap

      in price. The cheaper studio monitors, more exclusively for use with computers when watching DVDs, will be £50 cheaper than any in the mid-range like the AV-40s but the more expert, exclusively professional ones jump another £100 beyond the mid-range level of prices. The Studiophile AV-40s will set you back about £80-£90, and if you want high quality monitors I not only advise that you go for mid-range ones but choose these over the competitors.

I’m using the m-audio studiophole av-40 now, for several months, all i can say is that i used them for a party in house and the cops showed up. Now, I installed them on my car, a hyundai elantra gt and i can feel that my neighboors hate me.

For the price, the sound quality is not bad, and the location of the volume control is ideal.
