            And the sound is awesome! Very clear and flat.
            Simply turn the bass on the back down to slightly below half while leaving the treble at half.

            I can mix down with that setting all day long.

            Price is right as well.

            Not Amazing

            By Tevo

            from Boston, MA

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            With all due respect, these speakers are pretty horrible actually. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking to do eq moves and any other general mixing. It serves its purpose as a tracking reference monitor, but for mixing you're better off with headphones. It is very hard to achieve any low end with them, and the "low" knob, while it helps emphasize the bass, also makes things muddy, making you drop all your low-mids in your mix. Thre are absolutely no highs in these speakers, no matter what you do with the "high" knob. It is impossible to get clear detail in the high end.

            I have a pair of mackie mr5's and those do sound good. When i put them side by side the contrast in the quality of the sound is huge.

            The numarks dont image well. When I switch from the mackies to the numarks the sense of depth decreases tenfold. I still keep them next to my main speakers, and computer speakers for reference.
            5" woofer
            1' tweeters
            bass and high controls
            These are a step up from most computer speakers, but still bad sounding speakers. Mixing on those is like trying to cook without any pots. no lows, no highs, no depth, no definition, no clarity.
            they can get a little louder than most cheap speakers, granted.

            Great speakers at a great price! I use these monitors for bedroom Dj'ing and they work and sound great.
            Great
            Good quality,they have held up this far.

            Sound surprisingly good

            By guitar74

            Ask me a question

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            My only quip is the same as the other reviews in that I wish the on/off switch and eq controls were on the front of the unit.
            I have been trying to mix/master with headphones for over a year now (I know it's a BAD idea, but I am on a very tight budget). After looking at many brands, reading reviews, and finally trying to get the cyber Monday deal.

            Surpise! After getting them hooked up, tried a mix down/master of a song that had been giving me problems, and got a final product I was happy with.

            No more recording, mixing, mastering, burning to disc, going out to the car, making notes on annoying frequencies, and remastering only find that I overcompensated.

            What had taken me hours was reduced to five minutes. If you are on budget, give these a try. The response is flat enough to get an accurate mix.
            You won't find a better set of new monitors for this price.

            WOW! These are the BEST! WHAT A BARGAIN!!

            By PRSareBest

            from San Diego

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            Just ordered a second pair of these Numark NPM5 speakers! I guess I really liked them.
            These things are just mind blowing - how good they are for the price and because they are active and self powered you can hook them directly to laptops if you want to.
            Happy Dance!! Remember the Numark speakers I was raving about a few months ago? I finally got a set for the studio in Vegas. Just got here today and hooked them up! AWESOME! And get this, I asked my GF how much she thought they cost and she said three times the price. And here's the final surprise I didn't even realize, they are active! You plug them into the wall and no amplifier is needed so now I'm BLASTING radioio CLASSIC ROCK directly from my laptop. Love the cool blue power light. The one nitpicking negative is that I wish the volume and tone controls were on the front of the main speaker instead of the rear, but otherwise these are perfect tens.
            These things can't be touched for the money. I had to reposition and add a little glue to the Numark stick-on logos but no biggy.
            Again, nothing for this price compares. You could spend two or three times as much for another name brand, but why would you when these are just as good?

            THESE ARE NOT STUDIO MONITORS

            By jemic350

            from Austin, TX

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            Please be aware that these are not studio monitors. They are "Stereo Monitors" (even says on the box) Does that mean they are bad speakers? By all means no. Probably the best speakers in this price range for recording. I have used them and highly recommend them. They do the job better than any pc speaker system. If you are doing demos, these are perfect to do the job. Get these first, than Yamaha monitors later.

            Great Bang for the Buck

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            Up until now I had been doing mixes in headphones and then listening on near field mixes with el cheapo PC speakers. I just bought a Br 1600 8-track and wanted something to do a better job and IMHO I don't think you can do better for the price. These things sound great, crisp highs and the bass is full without being overbearing. There may not be Genelecs, Mackie, or some of the other big names, but if you're on a tight budget and don't have any decent speakers these would make a wonderful first pair of reference monitors.

            I'm so stoked!!!

            from Orange County, California

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            Just got these guys today!!! They were very easy to setup, but I thought I had RCA inputs in my little recording box, sadly I didn't. Just got a 1/4" to RCA adapter to solve that. Plenty of wire length so you can have them spread apart pretty far if you really wanted. The little blue light is blinding and very distracting, but the sound is amazing. I don't have stands so they're right in front of me, and quality is great. I can master/EQ sooo much better now! Crisp highs and a full sounding bass. One thing I don't like is that the on/off, volume, bass/treb knobs are all in the back. It's not that big of a deal but when you're using them to produce music you gotta get up off your chair and fool around with the back every once in awhile, untill you find a good setting for you.That's it! Good price, good quality! Two thumbs up!

            Good speakers for price

            Comments about Numark NPM5 Active 5" Studio Monitors:

            These are some amazing speakers for the price. They are made of strong material and are pretty heavy. These speakers sound great as monitors, but I bought these for a living room setup and they no doubt perform. The EQ and gain controls allow you to set the sound just right with the mixer. At max volume and gain these speakers did not clip. These speakers would be ideal for a small party setup. I recommend these speakers for any "Bedroom" DJ who needs maximum sound reproduction at a bargin price.
