M-Audio AV 40
Advantages: Great sound quality, small size, price
Disadvantages: Dodgy headphone port
M-Audio is well known across the globe for creating amazing value audio equipment, and these audio monitors continue to please customers. The AV40's are the largest in the range. M-Audio offer two smaller sizes, the AV30 and the AV20.
Compares to most audio monitors in this price range, the looks and build quality of the AV40 are excellent. The actual speakers are placed in a wooden enclosure that delivers the sound nicely. and the drivers are covered with an attractive wire mesh for protection The speakers are also magnetically shielded as not to interfere with any of your other equipment and makes them great for desktop use.
Both of the monitors contain a 4" polypropylene - coated woofer, which produces tight and accurate bass, while the 3/4" ferrofluid - cooled silk dome tweeters create clear and smooth high frequencies.
Each channel produces 20 watts of power. This is generated by an audiophile class A/B Amplifier. As far as the inputs go, the AV40's have both 1/4" TRS jack inputs and Stereo RCA inputs. This allows for connectivity even if you don't have a professional audio interface. There is also a small switch on the back which will provide extra bass if needed.
But these monitors are not just for professional use. These speakers would work perfectly at any computer workstation and has various multimedia inputs and outputs on the front such as the AUX in for an iPod or MP3 Player and a Headphone Jack. There is also a large glowing volume dial that gets brighter as the volume increases (pretty cool).
Overall, these monitors have brilliant build quality and sound amazing, but do not come at a high price.
Summary: The best you can buy in this price range
