They quote big numbers in their secs...and they deliver...I wanted something for stereo monitoring and small jobs...These go beyond what I expected...Check them out..and the price is unbeatable...BIG thumbs up!!!

I think they easily out perform the Mackies SRM 350's...

You're right...unbelievable prices. Where is this equipment made? Lots of options, but everything is less for a pair than any price I've seen for one acceptable unit of any other brand.

Fran, I didn't see a "buy now" price. How does that work? What did you pay/should we pay? Do we treat it as an auction? Did I miss something?

Your bosom buddy,

chas

Guys I can't find a made in ??? tag anywhere on the units or paper work...not even a printed in ??? note..
I recall seeing assembly in the CA factory..I believe I read this on a blog too..
The components are quality..they do not seem cheap like Behringer and other China imports...Workmanship looks excellent too..

But let me tell you over 3 hours ...torture test..playing G70, laptop, controller with VST's..even wide open...no shut downs, no crackling, no distortion....and guess what a pair of these 8" units can handle a decent size room...

Thanks, Fran. Finally, some good stuff from this board. 'News you can use', so to speak. I'm not sure I actually need these, but unless you're homeless, you gotta be nuts not to grab a pair of these (especially after Fran's mini-report). I'm ordering mine now, so everybody hold off until I get mine (in case they're in short supply ).

If Fran is using them in two months time, they might be worth while... No offense, but several things he has gushed about initially have not stood the test of time

I'd wait for a longer term review, were I interested

Not true..when I gush they are for real...I said what a great unit the K4 was..and used it for a couple years..I said what a great unit the Roland Cube 100 were and still using them 25 years later..

Some products I used for specific projects, and if I sold them..it doesn't mean they were less than I stated....They did their job, and I took an offer I couldn't refuse..

Diki , you have me mixed up with Donny..
