Great studio monitor speakers

By: on 4 October 2022
Hello, I've had the pleasure of purchasing these active speakers and have been using them almost everyday. I must say that I'm impressed by their sound quality for mixing for a fantastic price. The only issue I encountered was notable buzzing using 6.5 mm (1/4 inch) plugs on one of the speakers for some reason but this ceased when I switched over to XLRs. Yes, the sub bass is lacking but that can be addressed by connecting an appropriate subwoofer and this isn't really an issue for mixing overall as 'normal' bass tones are still present. I'm enjoying mixing these speakers as I've always used monitor headphones for mixing and I've had trouble wearing them for extended periods of time so it's great that I can give my ears a break in this regard and focus more on the sound in some instances. I'm satisfied with this impressive purchase and I would have no hesitation in recommending this product. Thankyou Artist Guitars and keep up the excellent service you provide along with quality products.

Not Bad

By: on 12 January 2022
I got these monitors recently and I'm fairly satistfied with them. Their frequency response seems fairly flat, which is important to me for mixing, though they do miss out on some of the real low bass frequencies (under 50Hz, as it says in the product description), but this generally isn't a problem, and I can switch to my headphones if I am needing to hear these frequencies accurately. Also, they seem to buzz a fair amount more than I expected. Not super loudly, but it's definitely noticable. I thought this might have been because of the unbalanced cables I was using, but they buzz the same with no cables attached. Overall not bad, but these things are worth noting.
