Buying Choices
Alesis has announced immediate availability of the new M1 Active 320 USB speaker system which they say is the best way to bring studio-quality monitoring to the computer desktop by combining premium USB audio playback and high-quality USB audio input for computers.
M1 Active 320 USB speakers enable you to play audio from your computer and record audio to your computer simply by plugging in the USB cable to your computer – no special drivers are required.
The speakers are not only substantial audio monitors, say Alesis, but also serve as a convenient audio interface for any professional audio products plugged directly into the line input jacks on the M1 Active 320 USB - Keyboards, mic pre’s, guitar effects, DJ Mixers, and regular audio components such as CD and tape players can easily be connected and recorded.
Alesis say that full range, superb sound quality insures that you get accurate audio reproduction to check your mixes. A Bass Boost switch helps emphasize bass frequencies allowing you to tailor the speaker’s response to a wide variety of listening environments. The lightweight and portable design means you can put the M1 Active 320 USB system into a handy carrying case and take them on the road.
