The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30’s are a set of studio/computer speakers. They seem to be primarily made for use with a lap top since they’re semi-portable, but can be used with any computer. Of course you can use them for whatever you wish, but computer use seems to be the main aim for them. The speakers have RCA connections in the back of one of them, as a speaker wire connects the two of them together. The speakers each have 15 watts of power and have 3” sub woofers. They’re not the loudest at all, but are suitable enough for editing purposes. In my opinion, they’re best for editing on the go or as a C set of speakers to check mixes against other pairs of monitors…


The sound of the M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 isn’t anything too impressive, but they don’t sound terrible and definitely get the idea across enough for editing purposes. They’re fine for tuning vocals and the like, but count mixing out with these as they just don’t have the fullness in sound for it. Again, I’d use them to check mixes against, but wouldn’t trust them for mixing. Considering their size and price, they sound is overall not bad…


If you want a super cheap set of studio speakers for use on the go or as an extra set, the M-Audio Studiophile AV 30’s are worth looking at. Only because of their super low price do they get a serious look, as they’re definitely not proper studio monitors and I wouldn’t use them as your mains in any situation. The perfect use for these would be for on the go use with your lap top for editing on the run. The M-Audio Studiophile AV 30 ‘s don’t sound bad at all for the price, so check them out if you’re in need of an extra set…
