    M-Audio AV42 reviews

    AV42 Desktop Speakers for Professional Media Creation (Pair) is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dynamics and clarity for the size/price These speakers are perfect for filling up a room with sound. Good bass and low tones for the size, and great dynamics and clarity. Im more of a clarity guy than a bumping volume guy, and thats exactly what these are. I figured I would eventually add a sub woofer to this set but after trying them out, I think I'm good as is! Might not be enough volume for a party atmosphere, but definitely gets the job done for listening to music in your living room.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from High quality sound for the cost, slightly weak bass. These are the newest version of M-Audio's desktop speaker line, the successor to the very popular AV40. On the upside: The sound is very, very crisp and clean, not flat at all with a wide audio range. Absolutely great for video games and music. There is no hiss or buzz that I have heard from so many low end speakers. They can also get quite loud while still maintaining their fidelity. At the price point I think they are about as good as you can possibly ask for, for audio quality from desktop speakers. On the downside: Don't take the following as a disincentive to buy, I think these are great speakers and well worth the money. That said the bass power of this speaker set isn't super impressive. It isn't like there is no bass at all, but compared to a 2.1 system that has even a low end dedicated subwoofer the difference is noticable. I am probably going to purchase a stand alone subwoofer to put alongside these so that I can get that nice strong bass kick to go along with the high quality speaker sound.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The little speakers that could. I edit videos as a freelancer, and needed some affordable, yet professional studio monitors. These bad boys have more power than I could ever need. They were super easy to set up. They come with a Y-cable to audio jack, so don't be like me and buy one - you won't need it. They lack some deeper tones, but all in all, very good deal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perform as advertised For the price these perform just like the other reviews I read. Great in my home edit studio. Look nice, sound nice (for the price).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AV42 is very good for home office After a lot of research, I replaced my M-Audio BX5a pair with AV42 pair for my home office about 12' x 15'. My set up is simple - Windows PC connecting to M-Audio super DAC via USB and then out to the AV42. I listen to classical music most of the time including opera and the performance is outstanding. Of course I'm not saying it's better than BX5a but for my office size AV42 works better. Now BX5a are moved to our family room to spread their wings. I was considering AV32 also, but the cutoff low frequency is 80Hz and the power output is half. AV42 has a wider range of frequency response with a cutoff at 75 Hz. This small 5 Hz range contains a lot instrumental ...don't overlook. Bottom line - it's great for home office setting.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok for the Price I guess I should not have expected decent studio monitors for this price. They are a little better than normal inexpensive computer speakers but nowhere near even modest studio monitors. Very muddy and hardly neutral.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from i like it but 4 stars for power switch at the back make me just leave it on and little more bass would be nice . but over all i am please with this speakers
