The MM-1s have a reported frequency response of 38Hz to 22kHz. I wouldn’t use these for serious listening but all in all, I’m pleased with their muscality. The MM-1 turns the trick in that regard: I began looking for a more discreet desk solution and the MM-1 seemed like the best bet. I really like the sound of these speakers, and if I could find it on sale, I’d jump on it again. We’ve also gotten more accustomed to using powered monitors like the Emotiva airmotiv5 so it almost has to be separated into two distinct catagories:

Amazon lets Alexa whisper into ears of Bluetooth Since the internal space in the ,m1 is so limited, the Nautilus tube actually curves into a U shape in order to maximize the chamber length. Most speakers require a fairly messy cable setup but the MM-1’s adds insult to injury by making these cables pretty thick.

Hence my confusion over whether or not it’s appropriate to simply call the MM-1s mere computer speakers. Maybe it’s a matter of perception but I just didn’t see as many folks being interested in this type of thing.

Good review Submitted by twtpp on December 17, – 4: These amps are clearly doing some real work because the right speaker gets pretty hot during use. I wouldn’t use these for serious listening but all in all, I’m pleased with their muscality My only beef with these is that there’s a bit of hiss coming through the amp even with no music playing and the right speaker gets quite warm even when idling with no music.
Disagree with our product rating? Quad ERA-1 review Part 1. Haven’t had a chance to hear it though. How about Monitor audio ws Submitted by branon on November 5, – 9: I really liked their stealth good looks and sound that was much bigger than the box it came out of. I really do think throwing all the money at 2 speakers instead of 3 makes more sense at this price range.
Perhaps some limitation with the Atmel MCU is holding it back. I live in Canada and it was a one time sale at the Futureshop chain. They look great on my desk, take up no room at bosers, and have better clarity and detail than the Audioengine A2 I had before.
Though elegantly simple on the outside, these little guys are surprisingly advanced on the inside. Audioengine is more popular than ever and has expanded to offer wilkinw than just speakers. However, the biggest annoyance I have is how the MM-1 requires an external power supply. I began looking for a more discreet desk solution and the MM-1 seemed like the best bet.

One of the few issues I have with the speakers is the cables. The entire speaker is keyword: Hopefully you will put monitor audio’s ws and the new harman kardon nova on your to review list too! Each speaker features a 3 inch Kevlar woofer and a 1 inch metallic dome tweeter.
And of course there was Bose, Boston Acoustics, Cambridge SoundWorks and some others, but nothing that really stood out to me at the time. I even went so far as to mate them to my iPad dock for a touch screen music system on the cheap in my guest bedroom. Each wlkins is covered by a non-removable “sock” of grill-cloth material, similar to Vandersteen or GoldenEar speakers. Fast forward a few years and this is wilkibs a popular category with lots more options – Paradigm has a few models Shift and MilleniaFocal has additional offeringsand PSB is getting in on the action as well.
In this case, guys who wear suits and schwanky offices and still want something that sounds good. Audioengine had their A2 and A5 models already on the market by then but they looked decidedly more like traditional speakers and therefore reached for a different audience.
Yes, I can reduce the bit depth to 16 with negligible impact on the sound quality, but it still demonstrates a certain lack of foresight by the manufacturer.
