OVERVIEW

Compact, nearfield monitors ideal for computer based studios and keyboards.

The MS20 Studio Monitors from Behringer are a pair of extremely compact, 2 x 10-Watt nearfield monitors that feature high-resolution 24-bit/192 kHz D/A converters. With the MS20, you can connect directly to your digital signal sources and eliminate annoying analog line-loss and hum forever. Whether you connect to your computer sound card, keyboard, or MP3 player, you will enjoy exceptional sound quality with great dynamics. The built-in amplifiers provide lots of headroom, while the powerful woofers and tweeters provide ultra-linear frequency response.

The MS20 connectivity includes stereo 1/8" and RCA jacks, which can be used simultaneously or mixed with a digital stereo source. Digital duties are handled by either RCA or TOSLINK sockets, providing for ultra-simple hookup. Individual volume controls for both Line inputs plus Bass and Treble EQ controls are provided on the front panel, along with a 1/4" headphone jack that automatically mutes the internal speakers.

Sound Quality
Sporting 3.625" woofers and 2.5" high-resolution tweeters, MS20 monitor speakers bring quality audio within the reach of anyone that operates a computer workstation. Whether you're a musician tracking your latest masterpieces, or just someone who listens to your favorite songs at work, MS20 loudspeakers will make them sound significantly better. They also make excellent add-on speakers for electronic keyboards. Front-mounted volume and individual bass and treble controls make accurate sound adjustments a breeze.

Built-in Mixer
The MS20 takes audio to an even higher level with its multiple input options. The built-in mixer features 1/8" stereo inputs for connecting CD/MD/MP3 players, dual RCA jacks for tape decks and stereo keyboard modules, and even both RCA and TOSLINK connectors for digital signal sources. This adds up to a system that lets you play along with a variety of prerecorded tracks. And you can wail away to your heart's content in total privacy, thanks to MS20's powerful headphone jack.

    Comments about Behringer MS20 Digital Monitor Speakers (Pair):

    I'm a DJ and some times, I do my own songs production too.
    What I found interesting about this speakers, is the (Digital Connection) :) The other ones "most of them" have analogue RCA connectors witch I can't get the sound I wanted, specially when work with high quality sound.
    With this ones I can get the (DETAIL) sound from inside my computer card to listen for any little possible mistake. But at the same time, I didn't felt like spending tons of cash for it, so then I found this ones! ;)
    I already know this brand and I know they're good at what they do.
    This speakers, are very easy to install and feels solid!.. I'm talking about a very solid manufacture. (Made to last.. no doubt).
    Now!... I notice, that in order to listen those sounds details, I had to lower the bass!... A LOT. because this babies, have almost too much bass for my taste.
    BUT!... that's not a problem because they have the bass and treble, that you can adjust as you wanted, so I'm good with that.
    Volume, ((No problem)) Trust me... they are LOUD! LOL.
    Size is comfortable too, cause they're not big.. so I'll totally recommend this speakers!! I don't see anything "cheap" here. They're solid, made in real wood (NOT plastic) and loud as hell with awesome sound quality.
    Oh!!.. and I like a lot how they look too.. Great job and I hope Behringer keep doing products with this quality and the awesome price competition they always offer.

      Comments about Behringer MS20 Digital Monitor Speakers (Pair):

      Glad our Roland monitors broke. For about the same price these are much more accurate and professional sounding. They come shipped with a small plastic plug inserted into the headphone jack, which was confusing/difficult to remove (no documentation anywhere) and I was about to send them back until I read someone else's review about removing that little plastic plug.

      Comments about Behringer MS20 Digital Monitor Speakers (Pair):

      They are great for a small home studio. The bass response is great for small speakers. I got these to monitor the recorder output and to listen to my recordings between mix down and mastering. You can get better monitors for a large studio, but you cannot beat these in a small studio.

      Great little speakers.

      Comments about MS20 Digital Monitor Speakers (Pair):

      We have a Yamaha P85 piano in the church which seats about 100 and the sound output is not sufficient. Bought these to try them on the piano, folks at the far corner could hear it fine. Folks were looking at the piano, immediately recognizing there was a better and louder sound.

      Great sound

      Comments about Behringer MS20 Digital Monitor Speakers (Pair):

      I bought these little speakers to attach to a keyboard at church that has only 6 watt speakers and can't fill the room. Testing these out at home on my home keyboard, I'm sure they will do the job. I like the controls on the front and input options on the back, and a great price with free shipping.

      Comments about Behringer MS20 Digital Monitor Speakers (Pair):

      I have been using my new ms 20's for a week now and they work great. In the beginning I thought they may not be big enough but they seem to fit my small studio just fine great for play back of recordings we produce from a 4 piece band in a 12 x 15 room. I love that you can control them from the front
