OVERVIEW

Built in power, front-panel controls, and flexible I/O.

Edirol MA-15D Digital Stereo Micro Monitors are ideal for computer-based recording artists seeking high-quality, powerful reference monitors to serve in a relatively confined space. With their wide frequency range and crystal-clear audio reproduction, Edirol MA-15Ds are perfect for such applications.

Edirol MA-15D monitors feature a built-in bass enhancer that operates on psychoacoustic principles. It converts low frequencies into a series of overtones that the human ear cannot distinguish from the original low frequencies. Thus the listener perceives bass frequencies below the normal range of the speaker cones. If you need even more low end, the MA-15D has a sub out jack.

For digital sources, Edirol MA-15Ds are equipped with a S/PDIF jack (optical and coaxial), and support up to 24-bit/192kHz sources. Thus, an unadulterated audio signal is delivered to the power amplifier so you hear exactly what you have recorded!

Volume and tone controls are conveniently located on the front panel. The MA-15D monitor allows direct connection of 2 sources, such as your computer and stereo. One volume knob controls the first source, the other affects the RCA and digital inputs.

You can also plug in headphones, which automatically defeats the speakers for silent mixing. Magnetic shielding allows to place the Edirol MA-15D speakers in close proximity to your computer monitor.

  • Bass enhancer
  • Up to 24-bit/192kHz, DA conversion for S/PDIF input

These monitors arrived today so I tested them a bit. I'm not a musican, I use speakers just for listening MP3 but I like pleasant listening experience. I connected these monitors over analog to my laptop (tested both RCA cable from package and ordinary=cheap 1/8" stereo line) and the sound isn't good for listening music. It lacks energy, sounds flat as if without life, doesn't "bring you into the music". Bass freqs are very good, bass boost is turned off, because if turned on, bass sound too loud. Highs and mids are good though. Before theese, I had Samson Resolv 40a for 1 year and and I even compared these Edirol with my brother's Samson Media One 4a (all 3 monitors have 1" tweeter and 4" woofer, similar price) and Samson definitely rocks. Samson has more natural lively sound and I heard the band just playing in front of me. With Edirol, the band plays somewhere else, sound isn't direct.I'm very curious, how will Edirol sound when connected to s/pdif or optial. I hope much better as I read positive feedback. But definitely I wouldn't buy it to be connected over analog.

I don't consider myself a pro by any means, but I've been recording my own music for about 13 years. I had a pair of Roland speakers along time ago that I used with my 4-Track and I figured I would give these Edirol's a try. They're good speakers if you were to use them as computer monitors, but for mixing, they are terrible. I will listen to something through these speakers, then through headphones and another stereo and it sounds nothing like it did through the Edirols. In addition, these speakers don't handle bass very well at all, particularly a kick drum whether it be miked or an electonic drums set/drum machine. To best summarize, there are EQ knobs on these speakers for a reason.

Can't beat it for the price

By Zebulan Hundley

from Frederick, MD

See all my reviews

This has been one of the best additions to my home studio... hands down. I purchased these in hopes that I would get a decent sound with which to record/mix and boy was I in for a treat. These speakers, although small in size, provide excellent response in the lower frequencies and except when maxed out on volume, they do NOT distort the sound at all. There are 3 separate bass response settings. When maxed out on the bass boost it does not muddy up the sound at all. The mids and highs are quite crisp. I highly recommend these monitors for those trying to record on a budget or for those that don't have room for full size monitors.

NAPOLEON COMPLEX?

Very accurate, compact and articulate bass response. These compete with really big monitors costing much, much more. You can't go wrong with these Edirols.

They are very good!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I originally wanted to buy Yamaha HS-50 but my budget were little bit tight so I go for this pair of speakers. They are very good monitors. I've been recording my music for over 10 years and I believe I have good ears. These speakers deliver the details. When I listen Ella Fizgirald, I thought she sings inside of the speakers! They are definitely good buy!

Amazing computer speakers

By Matt-Ar8Yl

from Illinois

These speakers work as advertised. I've used a pair for a few years with good results. If you want loud speakers for a studio, don't get these. For a small bedroom studio via your computer, they rock!

Great Price on an excellent product

By mrgungho

from springfield, MO

I just got my Edirol MA-15D Digital Stereo Micro Monitors in last night and immediately mix down and mastered 3 songs, all different types of music. I am truly astounded at the quality of these monitors. Normally I would have to master a track, burn it off then take it out to the car to see if I got near radio quality mix, and then have to come back and tweak my mix a bit then reburn etc. etc....Last night however, all 3 songs sounded excellent after the first Master. I have been using some older JBL monitors, and they have different frequencies for different types of music. These little guys (actually they arent that little) Had excellent reproduction of all ranges of frequencies in 3 differnet types of songs (hip hop, Rock and Acoustic) I am very happy with their performance and would recommend them to anyone. The product you get for the price is excellent, and the sound is really huge. They sound just as good as my 6" JBL monitors with even more range. Great deal!!

Roland monitor

By PaulB

from CA

I'd like to share my findings with these cute looking monitors:1) They sound better with higher quality RCA between two speakers.2) They definitely sound better if the LINE 1(1/8") input to be used instead of LINE 2(RCA). jacks.3) Haven't tried the digital inputs so I have no comments here. Reportedly, they sound even better than the above 2.

Edirol MA-15D

By RL82

from New Jersey

See all my reviews

I use these monitors strictly for my digital piano's audio output. I tested the my main piano sample using BOTH analog inputs. I made sure I purchased good cable to the comparison would be fair. For the RCA inputs, I used Monster cable--I found the sound to be OK. It wasn't until I used to 1/8" stereo line-in jack that I fell in love. These monitors are AMAZING. The clarity and tone are for beyong anything I expected at this price range, and with a company like Edirol/Roland, I'm confident that it's a quality product. I can only imagine how crisp these would sound using the digital line-in.

Quality on a budget

By Peter Germain

from Canada

See all my reviews

After doing my homework I bought these speakers and was blown away by the quality of sound I got.I use the digital optical input and this is to me the ultimate quality for these speakers the 1/4 and 1/8 jacks don't quite compare. Don't get me wrong the other two sounds great but to me theres a certain crisp and thightness to the sound with digital optical. All in all a great addition to my home studio.

Excellent value and sound

By The

from Tulsa, OK

See all my reviews

I have had these for 3 months and have recorded and mixed down 7 songs. When I play these recordings on other CD players, (like my car stereo or a boom box) they sound great. They do an excellent job of giving you the TRUE sound of your music; which is the whole point of studio monitors. They look great and sound great. I don't think that anything in this price range could come close to being this good, but that is just my opinion.
