I bought the original BX8 at least 10 years ago. I originally used them as keyboard/piano monitors because they sounded tonally correct to me. Then they moved out onto the back patio (which is partially enclosed on three sides) and lived there for 5 years. They were hooked up to an old iPad and provided music outdoors where having some power was nice. The winter tenperatures drop well below freezing and the summers can get above 100F. I never powered them down - they just hung out there with their blue light on all of the time. They are still going strong. I periodically wipe the dust off of them and they look as good as new. So my experience is that they are quite durable.
Max out everything and adjust volume with the smsl. That should in theory provide the best sound quality.So, connected the speakers with balanced TRS cables to the balanced line output of the SMSL C200 output and - as expected - the noise is gone. What a great improvement for my computer room setup. Thank you for the help.
I have one more question. I now have three places where I can adjust volume: 1) the Amazon Music app, 2) Windows sound control, and 3) the SMSL C200 volume. For best quality, which %-positions should I use? (I currently use 1) 80%, 2) 80%, 3) 60% )
Thanks. As I said, (link above, img/ 22) an effective intermodulation generator--10% is a great feat. Only a few would climb that high. No comparison to any decent speaker. I know, a tautology, but what defines a speaker as decent? The absence of such intermodulation, because it just is possible with lesser effort?More measurements from Nuyes https://gall.dcinside.com/mgallery/board/view/?id=speakers&no=306981&search_head=110&page=1
what did you choose?The prices for a pair of M-Audio BX8 D3 and Kali Audio LP6 V2 for me are almost the same (Kali is 20$ costlier). Anyone who has heard both of them, would really help.
BX8 D3. With slight PEQ adjustments they should be as good as the Kali and have way more bass extension.what did you choose?
I have a choice bx8 d3 pair 280 euro, kali lp-6 v2 pair 410 euro or kali lp-8 v2 pair 420 euro.
What choose exclusively for listening to music?
