Overview

Combining compact monitoring with a USB audio interface, RPM3 monitors enable you to simultaneously play audio from and record audio to a computer through the included USB cable. No special drivers are required. RPM3 monitors can easily record professional-quality audio directly from a mixer, keyboard, microphone preamplifier, guitar effects processor or other audio component. RPM3 monitors have also been magnetically shielded to prevent interference when placed close to computer monitors or magnetic media.

The RPM3 monitors provide a host of options to accommodate audio recording directly into a computer including a stereo 1/8" jack, a pair of balanced 1/4" TRS inputs and stereo RCA inputs. Volume control, power-switch and 1/8" headphone jack are also located on the front panel for quick access and easy adjustment.

RPM3 monitors provide full-range frequency response to ensure audio reproduction that is pure, yet compact. The lightweight and portable design means the RPM3 system can be easily placed in a carrying case and taken on the road, allowing for reference monitoring anywhere. If you need quality monitors and audio recording that won't dominate your desktop, grab a pair of RPM3 monitors and start recording.

I ordered this as an open box item that was "tested" and "functional".
It arrived broken and not tested. Being an electronic engineer I fixed the speakers.
If your going to advertise something as tested and functioning Don't lie and really test the product.
After repairs the speakers are OK but not studio quality merely good desk top monitors with a fairly decent audio interface.

Comments about Akai Professional RPM3 Production Monitors with USB Audio Interface:

Best $100 I ever spent. I recommend these highly! I use my RPM3 production monitors with my lil Fiio E6 amp (which i actually use for my headphones) and i must say, I'm completely overwhelmed. I suggest a amp and a solo subwoofer to add to these lil tastes of awesomeness. Aha

            Comments about Akai Professional RPM3 Production Monitors with USB Audio Interface:

            I looked at several 3" desktop speakers before ordering these to replace some old m-audio speaks I use in conjunction w a powered sub. Upon connecting & powering up I was totally impressed. I completely rolled out the sub & listened. The low end was tight & strong w/o being overbearing. It also reached down to a lower frequency than the old ones. I re-set the crossover on the sub to a lower frequency and adjusted the volume up and down. The mids & highs are adequate & slightly cleaner than the old ones. These speaks are not specifically set up for a sub. I use a mini mixer's aux send but now I can get a good sense of the mixes I do in my studio sitting at my work desk. Would sound good w/o a sub. Highly recommended. (Attractive too)

            I will recommend this to someone else to buy.
