My first pair.

Comments about M-Audio BX5 D3 Crimson 2 way Monitor:

Was looking for krk rocket 5s, and the store had run out. Saw these for the same price, and liked the fact they were special edition "crimson red" that was the deciding factor cause they match my Asus ROG laptop key backlights. Well took these puppies home connected them up to my Scarlett 212 interface, hooked up the power and WOW! Nice flat powerful punch with Crystal clear highs. Got to the point when EQing that I had to take a break after a while. Besides that, they sound incredible and match my setup. I highly recommend these.

    Comments about M-Audio BX5 D3 Crimson 2 way Monitor:

    I purchased the mackie mk5 at first but was unhappy with the 50watt power. I purchased these m-audio D3 and wow what a upgrade from the D2. Plus the D3 is pushing a 100watts 60LF and 40HF. These are small and compact but very loud. The sound quality is very well balanced.

    Comments about M-Audio BX5 D3 Crimson 2 way Monitor:

    I Mix and Produce music at home. This monitor is exactly what I needed for a proper reference point. Clean clear Highs, Strong thumping lows that you can feel. The bass is never distorted and the Red is nice added touch. Easy to connect, M-Audio makes amazing products for home production. No Sub needed with these speakers in an office setting. The Bi-amplification give these the clarity you would expect/need for your mixes to sit correctly in the stereo space.

        Comments about M-Audio BX5 D3 Crimson 2 way Monitor:

        I just purchased the BX5 D3 Crimson six days ago. It has been wonderful. The sound is incredibly powerful. The first BX5 D3 Crimson I purchased had an electrical cord malfunction. The staff on Broad St was very helpful and fast in replacing the speaker with another one. I am so glad they convinced me to stay with the BX5 D3 Crimson and not go with different speaker.

        Comments about M-Audio BX5 D3 Crimson 2 way Monitor:

        The Lows Sound really good with a set of Bx8, and everything is clear. Great for computer speakers but not for creating music if used on their own. Because of the Lows... But highly recommend if you already have BX8...

          Comments about M-Audio BX5 D3 Crimson 2 way Monitor:

          I have been playing for over 25 years and own several different kinds of guitars including Les Pauls, Strats, PRS, and a ton of others. This Gretsch is just an absolute joy to play. It's got that great clear sound that cuts right through but isn't harsh. It's always a crowd favorite when I play it on stage for it's looks and its sounds. It plays so smooth too. The chords are clear and precise. Soloing is a breeze and every note has it's own character. It all comes together with that dreamy sounding bigsby trem. I should have bought one years ago. It's the only guitar you need! I play blues, rock, and of course rockabilly on this guitar. With some delay and reverb, you're cookin' daddy.
