I got these monitors in a studio bundle I bought used off the website craigslist. So, I didn't actually go out and buy these specifically. The reason I purchased the studio bundle was to get the rest of the components to complete the bare essentials of my home studio. I have been using them to mix down my professional studio recordings for my full length album. I invested a lot of money in to this album but had to stop the project early due to financial trouble. I decided to finish it at home and got these to get me going.
I use this in conjunction with a presonus Firebox and a MacBook laptop (2.2 ghz, 4gb ram, 120 gb hd). I am running Logic 8 and Reason 4.


SOUNDS

The frequency curve is okay. They are much flatter than the pair of Behringer Truths I was using before. The stereo image is pretty good also. It creates some decent space and spread. As for sound spectrum, I am not one to quote Khz's (yet that is) but I would say the lows are somewhat muddy at times and hard to distinguish from each other (bass and Kick). I would say that the dynamics are its best feature. These monitors stay in a nice natural range which is good on the ears


OVERALL OPINION



I have been using these monitors for 4 months now. I was for some time using a pair of Behringer Truth 6" powered monitors. When I got these I noticed how less fatigued my ears were after an hour. In fact I could mix on these for hours, 4-5 someday straight (with bathroom breaks of course) and not be ringing or had mud in my ears. I have used much better monitors before but was thankful when I got these, especially after the "Truths." What do I like least?
