Exceptional quality, ultra-detailed sound, and solid construction.
The Nady SM-250A Active Studio Monitors are active, full-range, 2-way studio monitor speakers with a 6.5" shielded woofer, 1" ferrofluid-cooled, soft-dome shielded tweeter and built-in 100W bi-amped power. The model SM-250 is a bass-reflex loaded with a 2" tuned cylindrical port for optimized linear bass response.
These Nady monitors deliver clear, transparent sound and linear frequency response for perfectly balanced mixes that translate accurately to other systems. The speaker cabinets feature a curved front baffle for reduced high frequency diffraction and excellent imaging, not possible with conventional square-edged baffles. The heavy-duty monitor cabinet construction offers increased structural integrity and stiffness for
clean, articulate performance even at high SPL levels. Nady includes gold-plated binding posts to provide easy hookup to banana plugs or spade connectors.

I've tested these again other models costing several times more, such as the Samson Resolve and Tannoy and couldn't believe how good the SM-250a's sounded in comparision and at a fraction of the cost. I've had them for 6 months now and love them...
When recieved the speakers had both tweeters rolling around inside and one of the bass speakers had come unhooked.The volume knobs spun around and around.Do not buy these as they are junk.
I have both the powered and nonpowered version SM-120 Studio Monitors. I use them in conjunction with a CMX-16A Nady Mixer and SPA- 2400 Stereo Power Amplifier. This system is very quiet. The high S/N ratio and flat response make the SM-250A speakers Ideal for Near Field Mixing. ?Ninety-five percent of people listen to music in their car or on a cheap home stereo; 5 percent may have better systems; and maybe 1 percent have a $20,000 stereo. So if it doesn't sound good on something small, what's the point?" (Emusician, June 1,2001) These monitors are best for the money. You can quickly adapt any translation mixing tricks you need to perform and be fairly sure that your mix will playback nicely on most any consumer's system.
Nothing fancy, heavy as heck; a little too big of a footprint; a little over powered but the price was right. They looked dirty when I pulled them out of the packaging I attribute that to construction in china guess they are throwing them together.
I bought a pair, even though the reviews were mixed, to find out myself. I needed good sound but didn't want to give up a arm'n'leg to get it. I was surprised how good these are. I'm using all the time and getting killer mixdowns. I really recommend these.
I ordered these with excitement when they were first available. When I received the, one was damaged/dented, and neither worked. Same volume control issue.
Three DOA's. The packaging is simply terrible. I got 3 sets all with only one monitor working. The volume knob on all three pairs spun 360 degrees and would glitch out. The first set I got had the horn knocked out and rattling around in the cabinet. The sound from the one speaker that worked was not flat, very mid-rangy and would cause fatigue quickly. The amp section is poor and clips at VERY low levels. Spend a little more and get true studio monitors. I replaced these with samson resolv monitors and have been happy ever since. DO NOT BUY THESE, THEY ARE TERRIBLE.
I opened the box and was amazed at the weight and the looks of these things. I'm using a Korg 32xd siab. the sm-250 sounded great. I had one problem though.One of the volume knobs kept turning.(scary.It was up full blast and i went to turn it down, it turn way past the point it should. The other one was fine.Not to worried w/ a 3 year warranty. If it breaks i'll get it fixed. These monitors sound great. Better than the Event,and as good if not better than the M-Audio bx5 or bx8. excellent value.
