    Comments about M-Audio AV42 Studio Monitor Pair:

    Only sound was from headphone jack. No other sound. Took back after 20 min. Salesman confirmed defect.
    Tried another pair at G.S. And they sounded like an old transistor radio. No thanks. Got money back.
    Ill be saveing up for higher end monitors. The staff was great and took care of the return. Plan on spending over $300.00 for better quality monitors. You get what you pay for.

      Comments about M-Audio AV42 Studio Monitor Pair:

      I use these in my home studio. Not sure what others are doing with them to cause breakage and such. However, mine stay on my desk at reasonable volumes. I use them for personal rehearsal, learning songs, and jamming with backing tracks. I use a 1x12 tube amp with my guitar (again at reasonable volumes) and the monitors work fine. The sound quality is good, Im sure there are better. But, for my application they work wonderfully.if you're looking for something to DJ with or blow the neighbors ears out. These are not the monitors you're looking for. For good balanced sound for personal monitoring. I highly recommend these.
