        2-way active studio monitors ideally suited for computer studios, audio and multimedia workstations and keyboard monitoring.

        These extremely compact, 2 x 20W nearfield monitors feature ultra-high resolution 24-bit/192kHz D/A converters. With the MS40, you can connect directly to your digital signal sources and eliminate annoying analog line-loss and hum. Whether you connect to your computer soundcard, 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.

        Getting Connected
        The MS40 features exceptional connectivity, including 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 4.75" woofers and 2.5" high-resolution tweeters, MS40 monitor speakers bring high-quality audio within the reach of anyone operating a computer workstation. Two high-powered amplifiers feed a total of 40W of super-clean power to the internal speakers, providing an ultra-wide frequency response from 50Hz to 25kHz. Whether you’re a musician tracking your latest masterpieces, or just someone who listens to your favorite songs at work, MS40 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 MS40 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 MS40’s powerful headphone jack.

            Are used in 12 x 12 room on desktop.
            Wish they had 1/4 inch jacks inputs but for the price I'm not protesting.

            Comments about Behringer MS40 Powered Studio Monitor (Pair):

            I bought these as a replacement for some 15 year old computer speakers. The digital inputs were a selling point, because it avoids the noisy DACs on the computer's motherboard and is a much more solid connection than the 1/8th inch TRS jack.

            The speaker comes with bass and treble knobs, which I had to turn up to unity. Once everything was hooked up, I was impressed by the sound I heard. It's not as tight in the low mids as I like, but using them as a computer speaker it's better than any equivalent priced consumer option.

            My first pair came with the front panel broken during shipment (the whole panel was pushed in so none of the knobs were accessible). Musician's Friend took care of me with the exchange, and the second pair arrived in good condition.

            Comments about Behringer MS40 Powered Studio Monitor (Pair):

            I couldn't be happier with these monitors. They may be on the lower end of the price scale as far as other studio monitors go but they do not lack in quality. They are wood, not plastic. All components are of high quality and well put together.

            At first I was skeptical about EQ knobs on something that should have a flat EQ but I quickly realized that for the price these monitors make amazing speakers even for the non-studio user. The EQ makes it easy to go from listening to music to watching a movie or playing a video game. And the knobs have a divot at center so its quick and easy to bring the EQ right back to zero.

            I have listened to various styles of music through these (country, metal, rap, dubstep, ect) and I have yet to find a genre that sounds bad through these monitors. I have them hooked up to an M-Audio interface (red and white RCA from interface to right monitor and the yellow video RCA from the set running from right speaker to left speaker) and keep the monitor volume maxed and use the volume knob on the interface to adjust volume and even while listening to dubstep the lows are deep and rich all while the mids and the highs are still crystal clear even at 80% max output. I'm afraid to push them past that; not because I think they will fall apart but I'm pretty sure the neighbors will call the police. The only thing that will get me to replace these monitors is winning the lottery and being able to build a professional studio instead of having a spare room in my home with my setup.

            Bought these based on good experience with Behringer
            Vintager AC112 I got from Musicians Friend years ago. Bought these monitors from a different source because of order backlog. Hooked them up to Tascam DP 03 record, also MF purchase. Sound is excellent for basement hobbyist. Have them wired to supplement AC112 for stereo:guitar plugged into Digtech RP355 (also MF), one output to amp, second to Tascam and then Tascam to MS 40's.Oh yes! You will like that sound!
            Good experiences with Behringer and Musicians Friend.
