5 out of 5 eggsWasn't looking for these, but...

Pros: Price
Footprint (relatively small considering)
Overall sound quality
Adjustable high frequency gain

Cons: Bass is only adequate

Other Thoughts: Got this open box and they arrived like new with manual, power cables, and the speakers very well packaged. Don't look a bit used.

Bought these as an upgrade to the 5" M-Audio bx5a deluxe I've had for almost two years. The A8 produce much better bass and overall the sound field is wider. I added +2 to the top end using the supplied knob and these really shine. Can't wait to revisit some recent mixes to see what I was missing.

I am continuing to use a small Energy 8" sub as the frequencies below 60hz roll off rather dramatically with the A8 (but, like I said, MUCH better than the 80hz roll off on the bx5a). With the extra punch from the sub I have a budget reference monitor setup better than I could dream for literally half the cost of my next best option.

At the normal price these are still a competative monitor. I previewed some comparable Yamahas at Guitar Center a few weeks ago and for 30% more the Yamahas didn't deliver anything better. A8s are great budget monitors
