This review is from: BEHRINGER B2030P Up to 100 Watts High-Resolution, Ultra-Linear Reference Studio Monitor(a pair)
Pros: - "Ultra-Linear" means flat & accurate, which these are. - Sound is very clean & clear. Not too bright, and not harsh. - Can be had for <$130 if you use price matching. - Highly recommended by the people at Audioholics.com - Bests most speakers costing 3x as much. ($450-$500) - Can be modified for further enhancement. - Easily reveals flaws in the source, which some might consider a con, but that's what a good speaker is supposed to do. The upshot to this is good quality sources sound fantastic.
Cons: - Can only handle up to 100 watts (not a problem for most). - No grill, but if handy one could create and install them. - Didn't order from Newegg. Mine came with yellow stickers in the lower right corner instead of the newer black ones which look much better. They came off fairly easily and cleanly using my fingernail though.
Other Thoughts: I can't stress this enough; the price of these does not reflect the quality.
I spent 4 painstaking months researching and auditioning speakers in my home. I compared 6 different pairs and the 2030's beat all but one.
I auditioned the following: - Energy CB-10 (yuck) - The Speaker Company's best pair (who's now belly-up) - Axiom M3 v2 (very good, 2nd favorite) - Ascend CBM-170 SE (sound virtually identical to the B2030P) - SVS SBS-01 (didn't sound forward enough, however I see a new revision is going to be shipping soon)
I went back and forth many times with each pair playing various mp3's, video games, and some movies (DVD & BD). Eventually I came to the conclusion that the B2030P & the CBM-170 were the most "pleasant" to listen too. I chose the 2030 since they are cheaper and I didn't need the power handling of the 170.
I've got 2 pairs setup in a 4.1 w/ an SVS PB10–NSD, VSX-819H-K, PS3, X360, & PC. I've been using this setup for ~5 months and it's still impressing me
