M-Audio AV40? or anything else ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello guys, I spent some time to research about this powered speaker, found out they have many positive feedback but also some critical issue...

Such as static sound when adjusting the volume, sound leakage when headphones plugged in, not working after sometime, overheat....

 

I'm using it for listening music from PC, or to play my midi piano and electric guitar,

So here's few question according to my usage,

1, Do i need to buy a subwoofer to get lower bass and more 3d sound from music ? (I'll be appreciate if you can suggest any products)

2, Do i need audio interface such as scarlet 2i2 ?(I'll be appreciate if you can suggest any products)

 

Since this product is released at 2011, is there any others recommendations than this model ? any other brand, but similar price

 

Thanks for your help ! :)

I will start by telling you my setup. I am not a mixer, I listen for pure and utter enjoyment only. My interface is an Asus Xonar Essence ST. Now obviously you do not want this if you are a mixer so I cannot help you much with that. I have M-Audio BX5 D2's, which you can find for about $200 if you search enough. Used with a $100 Yamaha Subwoofer. This setup for my room is heavenly good. You NEED A SUB. I used my monitors without it for 2 days then hooked up the sub, and even this cheap subwoofer made the music twice as good. You need a very good interface that can allow the speakers to sparkle and shine. Crappy DAC's will hold the speakers back. M-Audio makes an interface for these speakers so you can check that out that corresponds to their subwoofer which is a steep $399. You get what you pay for, invest once and be set forever.
