    Twin-Line Design
    The efficient M3-8 design allows the mid- and high-frequency drivers to be mounted inline. By delivering sound along the same focal plane, the M3-8 speakers deliver improved time-alignment for fatigue-free listening. Lightweight woven Kevlar endows the 8 inch low-frequency driver and 5 inch mid-range driver with strength and reliability. The 1 inch silk dome tweeter offers integrated waveguides to provide increased clarity. In addition to the attractive real wood baffle, the cabinet provides tuned bass porting and optimized internal bracing to produce the highest levels of fidelity.

    Three Is Key
    Three individual amplifiers provide power to each of the three speakers. A total of 220 Watts of Class A/B amplification empowers the M3-8 with ample headroom for even the loudest mixes. Finely tuned crossovers deliver rich tonality across the entire frequency spectrum. The powerful 3-band EQ - and a switchable low-cut filter - allow you to shape the sound to match your listening environment. Pinhole-mounted blue LEDs provide an easy-to-use visual aide for perfect speaker placement. The result is an outstanding monitor able to perform in the most critical of listening environments.

    Exited...-7 volume. Everything else FLAT (0db)
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Initially I was semi-perplexed. These monitors were a lot louder than I expected them to be. I have used m-audio monitors from the 5 series to the 8 series (CX-8) Using Focusrite and MOTU Audio Interfaces. With a well formulated mix technique on these brands and others I normally only have to have the volume at 0db, with these monitors I am very pleased/happy/satisfied etc. with mixes of mine (as well as well known artists/musicians) that have been thoroughly tested/checked on various consumer and studio level products with the volume at -7db and all other settings FLAT; (eq swithch,bass switch,mid, hi, low; FLAT)Everything so far sounds the way that it should sonically and aurally that way.

    First time i heard them I said " O M G"
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Right out of the box these are very musically enjoyable: tight and nicely detailed without sounding harsh, grainy, boomey, overly flat or clinical. They "disappear" - the sound seems to come from the wall three feet behind them, casting a wide, tall sound stage that realistically locates individual performers according to the quality of the digital recording played from my laptop (lossless WAV files - no MP3) through my NAD digital pre-amp / DSP. I have no desire or need to hook up my sub-woofer yet, but I may do so to listen to movies. I am not a dancer, I'm a toe tapper. These can draw me away from other things and make me dance around the room or just stop and bask in the music! After hours of listening without ear fatigue, I still want to crank up the volume for my favorite tunes. An extraordinary value, I am absolutely delighted! I plan to get a second pair for the downstairs family room. My beloved previous speakers were Vandersteen 2ci - lost in a fire.

    Fantastic audiophile quality
    What is your opinion of this product?
    These replaced my audio engine a5+ speakers. I had to turn them way up to get good sound out of them and they lacked bass. These speakers have a ton of bass and great sound at any volume. They also have a better frequency response and I don't get audio fatigue from these. They have several hookups and even some eq functions built in. Fantastic real cherry wood fronts. Quality sound and build.
