Manifest's review

By Manifest, 08/02/2008
Chosen for the homestudio, they are active which avoids considering the small budget to make a bad choice Amp / Speakers.
The frequency response curve of the manufacturer is excellent (I know it's still one data provided by the manufacturer ...)
Speakers proximity to limit poor acoustics of the room, and screening for parasites (near PC monitor, cables everywhere in the room ...).


The frequency response is good as long as it should be used (these are speakers nearby. Cons: The bass sometimes "parasites" for some instruments (20-50 Hz) emerged bad, but can be "monitored" with a good headphone in support of pregnant and we must remember that the speaker settings (treble and bass can make up for that one time you know better speakers)
The stereo image is perfect, the sound is very clear view of the product range and dynamics are very good.


Used for 4 years.
Strength: Precision
Weakness: serious difficulties in the low (20 to 50Hz) compensated with adjustable bass on the speakers.
Quality / price ratio: excellent (they are old and their price has dropped)
I would definitely buy the same in this budget: EUR 274 found the pair in a liquidation of stock.

Strength and reputation
Monitoring the output of mixer
Computer / Sound Card / Mixing or mixing machines, or 2.


MSP5 the ultra flat. I got them used with the corresponding sub.
these loudspeakers are accurate, hard and tiring but they are ultra strong
and as they say. When it goes on MSP5, it will increase to almost anywhere.
It's a bit like a Sennheiser HD25, aggressive, not round, not flattering, not cool.
But we can trust them


10 years of use, and it still sound the same.
I like the volume buttons ribbed
XLR inputs and Jacks symmetric,
strength, severe acute mediums switches at the back.
Used with the sub, I did a great deal there's 10 years.
Now, there's better, lighter, less bulky in a home studio.
But can be more flattering, rounder, more cozy ...
When you have MSP5, you better have other monitors or hifi
to save a little ears ...
