WNAMM07: Two Speaker Systems From M-Audio
AV 40

M-Audio have introduced two new speaker systems – the Studiophile AV 40 powered reference speakers and Studiophile AV 20 portable multimedia speakers. Here’s all the details in their own words:
Studiophile AV 40
The compact Studiophile™ AV 40 powered reference monitors deliver the same proven M-Audio technology favored by top producers, recording engineers and musicians around the world. The combination of 4� polypropylene-coated drivers and 3/4� ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters provides punchy lows, crisp highs and an even, uncolored response. Custom cabinets with dense wood construction deliver far more bass response than you could ever get from plastic multimedia speakers. And for the highest possible fidelity, the Studiophile AV 40 monitors also feature OptImage III wave-guide technology and a 20 watt-per-channel internal amplifier that utilizes Class A/B architecture. The Studiophile AV 40 reference monitors are the perfect solution for traveling musicians or anyone who wants top-notch sound from their desktop multimedia system. Features
