Recording engineers and music producers around the world rely on M-Audio reference monitors to insure that their mixes are accurate. The StudioPro 3 active monitors bring that same standard of audio fidelity right to your desktop. Custom-tuned cabinets, optimized speaker design, and advanced crossover technology combine with generous built-in amplification to deliver the best sound you can get in monitors this size. Complete with magnetic shielding to prevent interference with computer and video monitors, StudioPro 3 speakers deliver great audio experiences from your music and multimedia applications. They’re also great for traveling.
Most small, inexpensive speakers simply don’t have the design and material standards found in professional studio monitors. The StudioPro 3s change that, delivering the same M-Audio technology and attention to detail we put into our monitors used in studios around the world. The StudioPro 3s deliver a host of features not typically found in monitors priced this affordably—MDF rather than plastic cabinets, internal acoustic foam for better bass response, custom port design for optimal efficiency and more.
For maximum flexibility, we have included a stereo "Aux" input which allows you to plug in a secondary audio source (such as your portable music player) in addition to the main RCA inputs in the back. The volume control works on both inputs simultaneously. Additionally, there is a stereo headphone output next to the "Aux" jack that mutes the sound coming out of the speakers and redirects it to your headphones.
The StudioPro 3’s enclosure plays an important role. In order to provide more stable performance, we used a special medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and unique interior reinforcement designed to absorb vibration and impact generated under extreme conditions. Additionally, our innovative cabinet includes carefully placed acoustic material that makes the StudioPro 3s sound much bigger than they are—resulting in a smooth, natural bass response.
I got these speakers of ebay a few months ago, and I hvae to say I am VERY happy with them.
My band visited a small home studio to record some demos and the guy recording us had a pair of M audio bx5 speakers. I wanted to get those ones but they were too expensive, so I spotted these on ebay and bagged them for £50. To me they sound exactly the same - such a good quality sound is produced from these speakers, and the bass boost is amazing.
Each has a 3.25" low frequency driver and a 1" high frequency driver, which give a really accurate frequency response. The speakers are self powered and provide 10watts per channel, they sound louder than this to me really.
Wood cabinets, magnet shielding (to stop interference form other things), vented port for extra bass, extremely portable and comes with stands for 'sweep spot'.
The speakers have RCA rear panel inputs, and handy front panel 1/8" aux input and output.
I use these speakers to listen to music, play games, watch films and record my own music. They are extremely good speakers and I would confidently suggest them to anyone looking for good speakers on a budget.
