These are great monitors depending on what you intend to use them for. These were the monitors I used when I started my studio and for what I was mixing as a beginner they worked out OK. Later as I grew in experience and my studio grew with more business I upgraded to true nearfield monitors with the Alesis MK1 Active Mk2 and eventually the Mackie HR824s, but I didn't get rid of my MA-8's. While I don't use them for mixing in the studio anymore, I still use them for reference and tracking when I go mobile to do an off-site recording job, and then when I return to my studio I'll use my nearfields to do the mix. I also my MA-8s with my Roland Electronic Drum set when I'm practicing.

Picked up a pair of these for my home studio because of the name and the price. I had used other Roland products, and my budget is a bit tight. I needed a functional set of studio monitors for mixing a professional quality recording so I could avoid paying ridiculous rates for studio time. I took the Rolands out of the box and hooked them up to my mac. The speakers had a nasty high pitched buzz that I knew I couldnt live with. I didn't bother much with them before taking them back and buying a pair of KRK Rokit 5's (and LOVE them!!!). If you're serious like I am about making high quality recordings you should have the highest quality gear that your budget will allow. If you can afford to spend an extra $ I would highly recommend it.

They are small, but big in sound. Do not let the size trick you. Very affordable.

Crisp, clean sound

By rob h-K6_-U

from DC Metro

These little black boxes have served me well for a couple years now. With tight, flat frequency response and a wide stereo image, the MA-8s are great for a small audio editing setup on a budget. Even if you're not a producer and just want a quality set of computer speakers, these are a great choice!

Good for computer apps!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

These monitors are good for multimedia applications but if your dealing with music like me and need better mixdowns these arent good for the simple fact the 3 inch woofer and 8 watt amplifier dont do that well around the 35 hz- 60 hz range so m mixes come out real bassy and boomy when im finished. if your on a budget id go with the berhinger truth monitors for 300 the pack an 8 inch woofer and bi amplification with 150 to low end and 75 to the highs with a cutoff of like 40 hz check em out

Great for beginners...

By Jeremy J

from Eustis, FL

These monitors worked well for years, but you can out grow them quick. I recently blew the woofers and plan to get some Edirols. I don't think you can buy anything comparable for the same amount of money. Since I was just doing basic voice work recording on ProTools, they were perfect for me.

Great for Small Recording Studio

By Twindraggons

from nashville, TN

These speakers have served me well for the past couple of years and are definitely worth the money. Sound is great for the size. If you're not ready to dish out the big bucks but need something to do the job of a powered monitor, then these are worth buying.

These speakers aren't worth the money

By Anonymous

For computer music applications, they are terrible. They are not even close to sounding great. Don't spend the money! Use other speakers or headphones instead!!
