      M-Audio AV 40 Studio Monitor Pair (H74833)
Availability:  


Powered desktop bass reflex speakers with magnetic sheilding and premium components.

M-Audio studio speakers are music industry bestsellers–and now AV 40 powered montors bring this professional legacy to your home. Unlike plastic multimedia speakers, AV 40s use technology thats trusted by top musicians, engineers, and composers: premium woofer and tweeter components for rich lows and crystal highs; wave guides for clarity and detail; and wooden cabinets for tight, punchy sound. Theyre perfect for creating all kinds of mediaand also let you get the most out of your CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.

Professional components–professional results
M-Audio builds the AV 40s with the same quality materials and precision electronics as acclaimed M-Audio professional studio speakers. The audiophile-grade Class A/B amplifier architecture, ferrofluid-cooled silk cone tweeters, polypropylene-coated woofers, and dense wooden enclosures add up to big, defined sound that defies the speakers' small size.

Clear, cohesive sound
The AV 40 speakers use proprietary OptImage wave guide technology—originally developed for the professional M-Audio speaker line—to deliver superior clarity and detail. Each speaker also features a precision-engineered crossover, which ensures that the sound emanating from the low-frequency driver will blend seamlessly with the sound from the high-frequency driver—so those deep lows transition smoothly into crystal-clear highs.

Extended low end
If you crave bass, AV 40s have you covered. With wooden cabinets and bass reflex design, the AV 40s kick out serious low frequencies—perfect for producing hip-hop and electronic music, or enjoying your favorite CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.

Magnetically shielded for desktop use
Many speakers emit stray magnetic flux that can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. The AV 40s are magnetically shielded, so they can coexist with other equipment without interference.

M-Audio AV 40 Studio Monitor Pair Features:

  • 4" polypropylene-coated woofers for tight, accurate bass
    1" ferrofluid-cooled silk cone tweeters for clear, pristine highs
    OptImage III tweeter wave guides for superior imaging and detail

    Magnetic shielding for use near computer video monitors
    Back-panel 1/4" TRS balanced and RCA unbalanced inputs for connecting gaming systems, DJ gear, mixers, amplifiers, instruments, and more
    Front-panel 1/8" stereo auxiliary input for connecting your laptop or desktop computer, MP3 player, or other audio sources
    Front-panel 1/8" headphone output for connecting headphones
    Front-panel volume control
    Wood cabinet with bass reflex port design for deep, rich sound

  • So Far So good

    As reviewed by Thomas Jones _ on 12/13/2012

    I just purchase these speackers about 3 weeks ago. They sound great. I have them hooked up to my Mackie Board and thru my Mackie board to the computer. They make my Itunes sing. I have read other reviews on other site talking about how they do run hot, shorting out the amp and some distortion after a few months of use. I believe if you are only using these monitors to playback music for your at home studio or listen to I tunes they will work prefect. I wouldn't recomend leaving them on 24/7 or use them for replacement speakers for your computer.

  • Save money and buy these!

    As reviewed by Ryan McQuiston on 3/25/2013

    I've been monitoring through these speakers for over 3 years. I've gotten plenty of use out of them. I've produced a few bands with them, and the sound has been very accurate. There's no such thing as perfect response, but if you're looking for "flat" save your money and get these over anything middle of the road ($100-500).

  • Fantastic Buy

    As reviewed by Andy Dobies on 2/16/2013

    These monitors are great, I've been blasting them for about 4 months now (not necessarily straight), and they still sound crisp as ever. They have a very flat response, very good for writing music, I use them to write DnB and dubstep myself. The bass is surprisingly good on these monitor, though if you want rumbling I'd suggest getting a pair with a separate subwoofer. Only complaints are 1) they do get hot after prolonged use (6+ hrs), and 2) they hiss slightly if you plug headphones into them, most active speakers have the same problems though. I would definitely suggest these monitors if you want good quality for not too much money.
