Overview

The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 compact powered speaker system makes it easy to enjoy full, rich sound even when space is limited. They're designed with the same critically acclaimed technology that has made M-Audio monitor speakers popular in recording studios around the world. Studiophile AV 30 speakers deliver clear, crisp highs and deep lows, along with superior clarity and imaging. Designed for the traveling musician or multimedia enthusiast, the Studiophile AV 30 system is the perfect audio upgrade for desktop production systems, portable video games, personal DVD players, and more.

Top-notch Sound”Anywhere, Anytime
The Studiophile AV 30 speakers feature the same core technology used in all of M-Audio's acclaimed monitors. Designed for a variety of mobile and desktop applications where space is at a premium, the speakers include audiophile-grade amplifier architecture as well as RCA inputs, making them compatible with practically all professional and consumer audio products. In addition, dedicated ¾" ferrofluid-cooled tweeters and composite woofers work with built-in crossovers to ensure optimal fidelity.

Extended Low End
The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 speaker allows you to get the most out of today's urban/dance music, movies, and video games. Unlike the "acoustically challenged" plastic found in many audio speakers in this price range, the Studiophile AV 30 monitor features a dense wood cabinet, bass reflex design and an integrated bass boost switch to deliver tight, accurate low-frequency response.

Magnetically Shielded for Audio/Video Production
The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 speakers are magnetically shielded and designed to coexist with all manner of electronic equipment without interference, making them perfectly suited for video editing and multimedia work.

OptImage III Technology
M-Audio's proprietary OptImage III wave guide improves overall detail and clarity while minimizing sound issues that can plague other compact speakers. The speaker system works by improving the overall efficiency of the tweeter as well as time-aligning the drivers. This ensures that the sound from each driver reaches the listener at the same time, guaranteeing precise stereo imaging and accurate response.

    Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

    If you are looking for a set of inexpensive monitors that don't sound inexpensive, then these are for you. I've had another set of $100 or less monitors for general listening and recording; and the M-Audio speakers blow the others out of the water! They are heavy-duty, crystal clear sound, and get plently of volume and bass response (for me anyways). One very nice small detail is they have about 1/4 inch of foam on the bottom to keep them secure and help with not rattling when the bass is thumping. I would get them again, no question.

      I have been using these speakers for my recording software I got a month ago and they have worked well since. I haven't had any problems with the wires or speakers and the sound is good. The volume goes really high, for my needs. Overall, these speakers were a good buy.

      M Audio AV30

      By Raymond Parent

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      I would buy these over again!!
      A potentiometer for the bass level would be nice, instead of the bass boost switch.
      These seem well built, and put out a lot of sound for their size.
      You can't find anything close to these for the price...

      Reality Speakers Awake!!

      By John Astor

      from All over the place

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      I've been home recording for many years and I needed something that was compact and accurate. I decided on these AV30's and am completely impressed. Music doesn't sound like you want it, it sounds like it is. Also, Musician's Friend offered such a great price and lightening fast delivery, I was sold.

      I can't thin of any speakers under $100 that do the job like these. If I were you, I'd go for it.

      Clarity, Accuracy, Honesty and Delivery.
      They all work well and I appreciate the power selection options!
      Can't beat it for the money.
      Same as above.

      Would buy again!

      By ozzie maynard

      from SF Bay Area

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      Outstanding monitoring speakers for the home studio. I can now monitor my songs very nicely. I also enjoy just using it for listening to songs.
      It could use a quarter inch input and output, but that's available on the AV40. Everything works fine, just the included stereo cable could never make it get good quality sound. The aux cable was missing for me. But overall, very great speakers with supreme quality.
      Wouldn't want to upgrade!
      Get these now! I would buy these again and would suggest them to friends. Worth every dollar.

      Decent speakers with some "boom & sizzle"

      By Mike

      from Seattle, WA

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      I have owned these for about six months now. I was in a bind and needed some small cheap powered monitors quickly for a personal song project. These did the job and actually sound good as regular stereo speakers/playback speakers, but they are very fatiguing to mix with. I used my loudspeaker measurement system (Clio by Audiomatica) to get some frequency response curves to find out what was going on and sure enough, they have a +3dB rise in the top end (w/ bass boost switch set to off). No wonder they sound harsh after a while. For non-critical listening situations these are good and are "fun" sounding. I would not consider them true "monitors" as they are not voiced flat, but flip on that bass boost switch and hook these up to your I-pod, computer, or TV and they will rock. Pretty big sound from such a little package.

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      Great product for the price. I've gad these for almost 6 months, still sounding good. Small speakers, but with plenty of power! These monitors really help me in the mixing process - I can hear what is wrong with which track.

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      These speaker rocks,Please keep in mind that these speakers are only 15 watts each so if you are looking for load speakers with heavy bass don't get these. But if you are looking for speakers with good sound quality i would recommend these.

      Garbage!

      By John C.

      from Southern California

      Comments about M-Audio Studiophile AV30 Speaker System:

      Terrible sound quality very distorted. They sound okay at low volume but overall their sound is flat. I don't recommend these speakers to anyone, learn from my mistake and do not purchase these monitors.
