Portable monitoring and USB audio interface in one!

Alesis M1 Active 320 powered monitor speakers make a lot of sense on your studio desktop and for field recording and other traveling audio engineers. The Alesis monitors connect via USB to your laptop or computer for plug-and-play listening. These compact speakers are equipped with I/O for connecting a keyboard, mic preamp, guitar effects, mixer, and other audio components for easy computer recording.

M1 Active 320 monitor speakers deliver 16-bit/44.1-48kHz audio quality through a USB 1.1 port--without the need for special drivers. A Bass Boost switch increases the low-end for monitoring in big spaces. Besides the USB cable, the I/O includes quality 1/4" plugs and standard RCA jacks, a TRS headphone output, two unbalanced 1/4" phone jacks inputs, a stereo 1/8" mini-jack input, and stereo RCA inputs. Another nice benefit is that each monitor speaker is magnetically shielded, so you won't have to worry about placing them near TVs or computers.

Comments about Alesis M1 Active 320 USB Studio Monitor Pair:

I've been looking for powered monitors for my Alesis Multimix-8 through my Toshiba laptop to edit & mix old 4-track band tapes. I was apprehensive reading all the great reviews on these little monitors. But the reviews are right, they are AMAZING! I set them up in the "triangle" pattern suggested in the manual and heard every detail in the mix, all with out the Bass Boost on. I still can't believe this sound is coming out of these little speakers! Love the extra desktop space I've gained too.
As others have said, Buy these speakers, it's a no-brainer

Comments about Alesis M1 Active 320 USB Studio Monitor Pair:

I use this for my laptop. This can be used for anything with a USB port as well. The bottom end on this pair is superior. I'm surprised at how good this product is considering its affordability. This is what I use to monitor my final mixes from my laptop. It's as good as any studio monitors, but this is laptop/PC friendlier with its USB connectivity, without any softwares to install, you simply just plug and listen to superior audio quality. I also use this to listen to internet radio and or satellite radio via internet. Great buy!
