A Bundle of Extreme Musical Happiness -- A Review of the Swans M200 MKIII - Page 5

53hz is decently low, enough that you probably won't need a sub if you aren't a basshead. Visit testsounds.com and take a look at what 60hz sounds like.

Thanks, that was a neat site.

I guess I was worrying for no reason

I've got these now. Had them for a bit, but I'm getting a slight hiss without any music playing. I can't swap cables etc so have problems eliminating the issue. Running it from my laptop to my HDP then to the Swans.

I have listened to several Swan and Aktimate speakers. Aktimate makes better speakers than Swan at the same price point in Australia. However, Swan makes good speakers as well.

Aktimate>Swan>Audioenigne A5+

I have owned speakers from all three companies.

Based on my experiences, for true hifi sound:
Aktimate Mini+>Swan speakers up to $1000>Swan MK200MKIII>Aktimate Micro>Swan MK200MKII>Swan D1080>Audioengine A5+

Aktimate Micro costs $279 in Australia but $500 in USA.

So if you get Swan MkIII for $400 then that is a bargain. And no monitor setup within $400 comes close to Swan MKIII.

Between Swan and Aktimate, a lot comes down to preference and taste, but from the point of view of true hi fi Aktimate is better.

Thank You
