First Studio Monitors Review by Calvin Gerrard
The M1 Active 520's are my first proper studio monitors, I use them to mix the songs I produce on Reason 4. They pick up all the different sounds well and you can hear the difference in my mixes! They make it so if it sounds good on these pair it will be good sounding on anything! (Posted on 8/4/10)
