M-Audio BX5 D3 Compact 2-way 5-inch studio monitor
  • As a Dj & Producer these are perfect for the studio but as good for mixing up a set.
  • Good quality speakers, sound a lot lot better than i expected, comparable with Korg studio monitors, can't fault them in that area at all.
  • Excellent monitors for the price. Sturdy and with great sound quality, invest in a set of speaker stands to get the most out of them.
  • Good quality. They are good speakers for low-mid range. too much bass for me. but i recommend.
  • I bought these as a pair of speakers for the kitchen, and was after something with balanced and great quality sound. They have not disappointed and provide exactly that.
M-Audio BX8 D3 Professional 2-way active studio monitor speaker
  • I think these monitors are great value, very powerful and have a heavy bass line.
  • Wow what a pair of speaker's, I had 2 already, that impressed with the build and the sound quality so I brought another 2 lol, so you can imagine how much power I have Haha.
  • Happy with the quality, the design is sick, sounds good and conveniently mobile for studio monitors.
  • These are my first monitors and I must say I'm blown away with the sound quality. I did expect something good, but not THAT good, especially in this price range.
  • Really poor quality. I recommend you research other brands, and check their reliability.

What customers say about "Features"
M-Audio BX5 D3 Compact 2-way 5-inch studio monitor
  • The sound quality is superb, however not for gaming, but it was not really ment to be made for that anyway.
  • Love them. Awesome quality, good size for a computer desk and good looks.
  • Sound has good clarity, the eq is nice and flat, build quality is decent, easy to set up.
  • But overall, very useful and usable speakers, handy size, good build quality.
  • The only problem is it heats up very quickly the back of the speaker gets hot.
M-Audio BX8 D3 Professional 2-way active studio monitor speaker
  • Excellent quality of sound and has a lot of range and power for speakers the height of a pint of milk. Look great as well.
  • Great quality sound, not too big/small, comes with all relevant connections.
  • Good quality product, ideal for the small home studio enabling a fairly good mixing facility. Cabinets are well designed with useful facilities and are strongly made. Well worth the money!
  • Really good sounding monitors for the price. build quality is also great.
  • Where things aren't so good is that the build quality of the speak cable connectors is very poor.
