Both the Studio 50USB and Media 40USB monitors provide ultra-linear frequency response – perfect for multimedia production, or just enjoying sound from streaming media. USB connectivity eliminates the need for special cables and adapters, which makes setup a breeze, plus the speakers are magnetically shielded to work perfectly with computer monitors – even when placed in close proximity to video monitors of all types.

Users have the freedom to connect either a stereo TRS or RCA device to the rear panel inputs of either set of monitors – simultaneously. With its room-filling output, high-quality woofers and tweeters plus true bi-amped operation, flexible USB/analog connectivity and elegant styling – Studio 50USB and Media 40USB digital monitor speakers bring music to life!
