Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A Compact - 100W 5.7" Two-Way Compact Nearfield Monitor (Pair)

B&H # DYBM5AC Mfr # 995-001211
No Longer Available

The BM5A Compact from Dynaudio Acoustics is a high-quality nearfield monitor that's ideally suited for areas where space is a major factor, such as project and mobile studios. The durable bass-reflex cabinet houses a 5.7" woofer and a 1.1" tweeter to provide crystal-clear audio with a wide frequency range. Internal amplifiers provide 100W of total power for low distortion, and also incorporate protection circuitry to prevent overheating.

The rear panel of the unit features a single, balanced XLR input for connection to your DAW. It also has several switches for customizing the monitor to your acoustic space, including three EQ filter switches, a high-pass filter switch, and a level control.

      Comments about Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A Compact - 100W 5.7" Two-Way Compact Nearfield Monitor (Pair):

      These are superb monitors. We have used several sets extensively in mobile and smaller-scale studio work, and have been very impressed. Particularly overall sound quality, imaging, power/size ratio and flexibility/ease of use. We also did some semi-formal listening comparisons a while back with a number of engineers and monitors from Neumann, Yamaha and others, including some larger monitors, and these scored very well. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Dynaudio Acoustics BM5A Compact - 100W 5.7" Two-Way Compact Nearfield Monitor (Pair):

      I set these speakers up with a direct feed from a Cambridge Audio DAC MAGIC PLUS.
      After letting them break in for several hundred hours, I find myself puzzled by the sound of these speakers. Lifeless, hollow and cold.
      I have moved my desk and tried different distances as well as angles, never changing the overall impression. I have a set of NHT active monitors at home that cost half as much and sound twice as good.
      I wish I could add something good in this review other than they seem well crafted and imaging is decent.. Other than that, look somewhere else if you care for good sound on your desk.
