Dynaudio Acoustics BM6A overview

  • 1Description

The Dynaudio Acoustics BM6A is a 2-way, Active studio monitor powered by twin 50 Watt amplifiers, featuring a 6.5" woofer and a 1" dome tweeter, housed in a no-nonsense cabinet with a black and aluminum finish, and sold as a pair.

The cabinet interior has been treated with damping material to minimize aberrant, vibration-related distortion, and the fluid-protected tweeter features a rear acoustic chamber. The amps are convection cooled, and there are a pair of front panel LED's indicating power, and overdrive or thermal protection activity, respectively.

The rear panel of the BM6A is refreshingly minimalist, featuring a trio of High, Mid and Low frequency boost/cut switches, a balanced or unbalanced level sensitivity switch, and a dedicated High Pass filter switch. The lone connector is a balanced XLR female. The frequency switches are provided for subtle adjustment to the given room environment, not playback enhancement.

The BM6A is actually about this: if your mix is really good, it'll sound really good, and if it isn't, it won't. Neutrality, and balanced, un-hyped frequency delivery on playback, should be the objective in studio monitor speaker design. There are many active monitors available to choose from these days , and neutrality is both a manufacturing boast, and an engineering holy grail, that the BM6A actually delivers.

    Dynaudio Acoustics BM6A reviews

    BM6A - 2-Way Active 6.5" Nearfield Monitors (Pair) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE!!!! These monitors are the best, most well balanced monitors under $4000. I've used many monitors and none compare to the Dynaudio bm6a's! Forget about the JBL self tunning monitors that are the same price cause you're paying for a lot of junk. The Mosfet amps in the monitors are sonically beautiful. If your not using Dynaudio then you are doing yourself a great injustice, and with B&H offering the best price on these you have no excuse to not be!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid! I am a Dubstep producer/dj, I purchased these as an upgrade from a lower price range. I found them to be ideal for my room size and I dont know any other musician that doesn't respect the Dynaudio Brand. After my purchase the hopes came true and beyond. Crisp clean sound, and they have a very quick response. I'll be sitting in my studio playing them at mid levels, and I'll feel comfortable without too much stress on the ears, and yet I can hear everything I need without turning it up any louder. Also if my mix sounds good on these I know its gonna sound good elsewhere. Keep in mind these speakers are louder than you realize when you are right next to them. Mind your neighbors they can get loud! They move some air, if you're careful with them they will make you never regret your purchase. Great frequency response too, I am very impressed with these boxes! 5 stars

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from average quality Compared to the excellent and class-leading Genelec 8040As, the Dynaudio BM6As are only an average product. Mediocre for stereo imaging and high-frequency response, the result is a muddled sound, without the precision, transparency, and focus essential to great studio monitors. As hi-fi speakers they perform better, with a warm sound and pleasant bass response, but unfortunately not to standards of professional use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the price! I use these monitors to mix in my home studio. I've been around studios with Genelecs and love the sound, but mixing requires you to get down and dirty. My room is a little smaller so the BM6a's are the perfect size with real tight bass, a very clear mid range, and a clean high end. Overall I couldn't be happier with my choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Accurate Near Fields The bass content on these speakers acts like they are twice the size. Very clear and defined. Easily the most accurate near field speakers I've ever used (and I've used a pair at work for 3 years, and had to replace my very good Event 20/20s with them).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from BM6A's sound great terrific for near field monitoring, even in small (170 sq. ft) rooms. tight low end, lots of detail. more power than i ever need.
