M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 – Overview

If you want to go beyond enjoying music and videos to creating your own, you need a serious speaker system with accurate sound. The M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 brings this professional legacy to your home. It uses technology that is endorsed by top industry players :

  • premium woofer and tweeter components for rich lows and crystal highs;
  • wave guides for clarity and detail;
  • wooden cabinets for tight, punchy sound

They are most suitable for creating all kinds of media—and also let you get the most out of your CDs, MP3s, DVDs, and games.


The M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 system consists of a pair of 8.75-inch-tall desktop speakers. While that doesn’t sound very big, the speaker’s 6-inch width and 7.25-inch depth make for a fairly bulky design. They weigh 14 pounds each.

M-Audio Studiophile AV40Clear, Cohesive Sound

The M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 speakers uses its proprietary OptImage wave guide technology. These were originally developed for the entire professional M-Audio speaker line to deliver superior clarity and detail. Each speaker also features a precision-engineered crossover, which ensures that the sound flowing from the low-frequency driver will fuse seamlessly with the sound from the high-frequency driver resulting in deep lows transitioning smoothly into crystal-clear highs.

Magnetically Shielded for Desktop Use

Many speakers emit stray magnetic flux that can wreak havoc to your computer monitor or TV nearby. The M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 is magnetically shielded, hence they can coexist with other equipments without causing a din. Put them anywhere you like and they won’t give you any interference problems.

Here’s a pick of some recent reviews:

  • These monitors perform surprisingly well considering the price. They handle plenty of volume with surprising clarity.
  • I use these monitors when comparing mastered mixes. This is a good comparison to a lesser quality home stereo system, so it makes sense to have these in your array. Kind of flat and lacking lower frequencies, but not bad. For the price, you can’t beat eI bought these monitors for my Tascam dp-24. Nice deep bass response and clarity. Was looking at other ones but couldn’t pass them up for the price. Works perfect in my home studio. I couldnt be happier.
