Is the M-Audio bx5a 5 inch Biamplified studio monitor?
There’s a new Deluxe version of the B5xa’s that’s recently come out, and M-audio’s PR says they sound even better, which I find hard to believe. These little gems are a steal, and rank with VERY expensive audiophile components. Connect them via a Y cable to your Mac or PC and enjoy sound that blows Bose, Yamaha and Harmon Kardon speakers away.
Is the Monitor Audio bronze BX5 still good?
After almost three years, the Monitor Audio Bronze BX5s finally lose their fifth star. They’ve done well to hold on to it for so long, and we still really like the refined looks and sound, but there are now strong rivals that cost the same (or less) and offer a higher level of engagement.
What are the drivers on a monitor BX5?
Beneath this are two 14cm drivers and a front-firing reflex port. Don’t assume this port to be a sign of positional flexibility, though – there’s another one at the back, above some chunky, biwirable speaker terminals. The BX5s are fairly tolerant of walls, but they’re much happier in free space.
What kind of music does the bx5s sound like?
Happily, the BX5s sound just as accomplished as they look. No matter what you throw at them – and throw it we did, from Holst’s The Planets, to Bon Jovi via Daft Punk – they scarcely offer an opportunity for criticism.
Why are M-Audio Biamplified studio monitors so good?
M-audio has done an amazing bit of engineering in these small wonders. They’re terrific for mixing music, which means they’re not too heavy in the bass, midrange or top end. I use them daily to listen to my music catalog on iTunes, and the sound is so crisp and sweet, I’m hearing things I’ve never heard before in music I’m very familiar with.
What’s the frequency response of the M-Audio b5xa?
The frequency response is nearly flat from 40 Hz to 20,000 Hz, which means that you’re actually hearing what the original sound engineers intended when the recordings were made. There’s a new Deluxe version of the B5xa’s that’s recently come out, and M-audio’s PR says they sound even better, which I find hard to believe.
What kind of drivers do M-Audio use?
