Powered desktop bass reflex speakers with magnetic sheilding and premium components.

M-Audio studio speakers are music industry bestsellers-and now AV 40 powered montors bring this professional legacy to your home. Unlike plastic multimedia speakers, AV 40s use technology thats trusted by top musicians, engineers, and composers: premium woofer and tweeter components for rich lows and crystal highs; wave guides for clarity and detail; and wooden cabinets for tight, punchy sound. Theyre perfect for creating all kinds of mediaand also let you get the most out of your CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.

Professional components-professional results
M-Audio builds the AV 40s with the same quality materials and precision electronics as acclaimed M-Audio professional studio speakers. The audiophile-grade Class A/B amplifier architecture, ferrofluid-cooled silk cone tweeters, polypropylene-coated woofers, and dense wooden enclosures add up to big, defined sound that defies the speakers' small size.

Clear, cohesive sound
The AV 40 speakers use proprietary OptImage wave guide technology-originally developed for the professional M-Audio speaker line-to deliver superior clarity and detail. Each speaker also features a precision-engineered crossover, which ensures that the sound emanating from the low-frequency driver will blend seamlessly with the sound from the high-frequency driver-so those deep lows transition smoothly into crystal-clear highs.

Extended low end
If you crave bass, AV 40s have you covered. With wooden cabinets and bass reflex design, the AV 40s kick out serious low frequencies-perfect for producing hip-hop and electronic music, or enjoying your favorite CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.

Magnetically shielded for desktop use
Many speakers emit stray magnetic flux that can wreak havoc with your computer's video monitor or a nearby TV. The AV 40s are magnetically shielded, so they can coexist with other equipment without interference.

  • 1" ferrofluid-cooled silk cone tweeters for clear, pristine highs

    Comments about M-Audio AV 40 Studio Monitor Pair:

    These monitors are great.You can put them near computers and electronic equipment without worry.The are magnetically shielded.The volume is pretty good for as small as they are and the audio is very clear.They will help you get well balanced mixes.They come with everything but TRS cables.I had a set of TRS cables around so it was not much of a problem BUT if you have an m-audio audio interface like the fast track pro you will need the TRS cables to properly connect them to monitor your audio.They include speaker cable to hook up the second speaker and a phono stereo to rca for your computer audio card (in case you want to monitor your audio from the computer) and a straight phono stereo for say a cd player or audio device with stereo phono or headphone jack.M-audio makes really good products.
