M-Audio invited us to check out their new line of speakers in a sweet hotel suite so the acoustics were proper. I listened to multiple songs from both my iPod and M-Audio’s and the quality of these are great. The low end AV20s cost $99, the AV30s are $129, and the AV40s are $149. The AV30 and AV40 both come with input and output 3.5mm jacks on the front.
They’ll be available in about a month and are pretty decent bang for the buck – especially for musicians looking for a cheap pair of monitors.
