Overview

These extremely compact, 2 x 20W nearfield monitors feature ultra-high resolution 24-bit/192kHz D/A converters. With the MS40, you can connect directly to your digital signal sources and eliminate annoying analog line-loss and hum. Whether you connect to your computer soundcard, keyboard, or MP3 player, you will enjoy exceptional sound quality with great dynamics. The built-in amplifiers provide lots of headroom, while the powerful woofers and tweeters provide ultra-linear frequency response.

Getting Connected
The MS40 features exceptional connectivity, including stereo 1/8" and RCA jacks, which can be used simultaneously or mixed with a digital stereo source. Digital duties are handled by either RCA or TOSLINK sockets, providing for ultra-simple hookup. Individual volume controls for both Line inputs plus Bass and Treble EQ controls are provided on the front panel, along with a 1/4" headphone jack that automatically mutes the internal speakers.

Sound Quality
Sporting 4.75" woofers and 2.5" high-resolution tweeters, MS40 monitor speakers bring high-quality audio within the reach of anyone operating a computer workstation. Two high-powered amplifiers feed a total of 40W of super-clean power to the internal speakers, providing an ultra-wide frequency response from 50Hz to 25kHz. Whether you'e a musician tracking your latest masterpieces, or just someone who listens to your favorite songs at work, MS40 loudspeakers will make them sound significantly better. They also make excellent add-on speakers for electronic keyboards. Front-mounted volume and individual bass and treble controls make accurate sound adjustments a breeze.

Built-in Mixer
The MS40 takes audio to an even higher level with its multiple input options. The built-in mixer features 1/8" stereo inputs for connecting CD/MD/MP3 players, dual RCA jacks for tape decks and stereo keyboard modules, and even both RCA and TOSLINK connectors for digital signal sources. This adds up to a system that lets you play along with a variety of prerecorded tracks. And you can wail away to your heart' content in total privacy, thanks to MS40' powerful headphone jack.

Inexpensive, sturdy and good sound for amateurs

By Tom Horan

from Yaphank, New York

Comments about Behringer MS40 Powered Studio Monitor (Pair):

I'm using these as studio monitors for my Tascam digital recorder. While not professional grade they are a great simple solution for a basement hobbyist making amateur recordings. I purchased them not only because of the price but also the good quality of the Behringer Vintager AC 112 guitar amplifier I have had for many years. I expect these monitors to be as reliable as the amp.

      Comments about Behringer MS40 Powered Studio Monitor (Pair):

      Happy with the instrument. Pretty good for what it is. Best ES-335 copy that I've played. Sounds good acoustically, warm and rich electrically. Nice ring to it. Setup out of the box was excellent. Relief was set properly. Action was correct. Nut adjusted correctly. Bridge is the weak point and was a problem to intonate. The 'D' saddle did not have the forward room to true the string. Needed to be forward of it's maximum range. Saddles too wide. Also not the best metal. Chrome coating made moving the saddles difficult. Replaced the bridge with a Gotoh, which has narrower saddles and is made of solid metal. Problem solved. Still, a pretty good guitar. I'm happy with the purchase and will have many happy years playing it. Buy one.

        Comments about Behringer MS40 Powered Studio Monitor (Pair):

        Got one of these a few years ago for my Grandson and amazed how well it responded. Just purchased one for myself and same results. I didn't have to pluck the strings to get it to play. Only had this one for 1 and 1/2 weeks and I must say it is a Gretsch. No issues with it yet and also love the walnut color. It weights less than all of my Fenders. That helps my back. I am looking forward to using it more. I play every Thur. night at the American Legion Hall. More kick than I ever expected out a small Bass. I would recommend this guitar to others and I would also buy another one if it was needed. Well worth the money.

          This is my first pair of dedicated monitors I've purchased. I'm using these for accurate sound reproduction with my laptop. I've been using a pair of Altec powered speakers that really do a good job but, doing an A-B comparison, there is a definite difference.
