        Comments about M-Audio AV42 Studio Monitor Pair:

        These sat on my desk as lightly used computer speakers. Worked fine for about 2 years until they didn't. Contacting m-audio resulted in a form email with no reply address and they never got back to me. For that reason alone I would avoid these speakers and this company.

        Comments about AV42 Studio Monitor Pair:

        Stopped working after about 2 weeks and had to send them back. The bass and eq's were not that good on them to begin with so for them to just go out on me was very disappointing.
