I found this at Musician's Friend [musiciansfriend.com] and is definitely at a great price!

Remember there are also cashback for Musician's friend or Guitar Center, which ever you choose! Just Google it!

I checked on Amazon and they are selling for $171.64 + shipping and eBay found it for $79 + shipping. I read a lot of reviews about this item and they are a pretty good piece to own for a small studio. Thumbs up if you like it!

Free Shipping on Orders Over $25!

Update: Changed to Musician's Friend instead of Guitar Center. Less hassle since their free shipping policy is orders over $25. Thanks Fiire and Shnitz for your comments!

Musiciansfriend and GuitarCenter are the same company, but thanks for the heads up. And as to the price mistake police, it's probably because he correctly used both "price" and "mistake" in the ad, as opposed to those morons that try to self-promote their OP by saying something stupid like, "Maybe it's some kind of price mistake?" when it clearly is not.

However, as a more realistic price comparison, B&H has these as not available yet, but for $99. So, this really is a very respectable price.

yeah i know they're the same company (ala systemax = tigerdirect/compusa/circuitcity), just wanted to point out that people don't have to jump through hoops to get free shipping. I found it odd because anytime PM alerts are set off, irrespective of wording, there's always a flood of irrational TD's

It set off my price mistake alert, but it did not get a TD from me because it looks like a possibly good deal for those looking for studio monitors. I wouldn't want them to miss out just because of some silly alert.

Good on everyone else probably thinking the same thing. nod

Just got home from GC with a set for my desktop in my home office. Just to save some folks a bit of experimenting, there are a few things to help them sound much better:

- Keep your system volume around 40% as it will subtly start to distort above that. I thought the amp was clipping, but it turned out to be my system volume overloading it. Once you get that right, they will go extremely loud without distortion (at least at volumes my ears can stand).

- Stuff a sock in the each of the back ports and turn on the bass boost. The bottom end is lacking as-is and the bass boost muddies the sound big time. The sock/bass boost combo seems to find a good medium.

Overall these are great for the price. I have a set of Audioengine 2s at my work office and to compare, the Alesis speakers sound thinner, brighter and have less bottom end. However, they're a 1/3 to 1/4 the price (depending on where you buy the Audioengines). I've heard after break in they sound a lot better, so I will update the thread if I notice anything tomorrow.

Yes, you just need a Stereo Male 3.5mm to Stereo Male RCA cable, like this [amazon.com]. wave

These are great small speakers. Wish the Elevate 5 were on sale. That's what I'm looking for.

But these are definitely good just to hook up to your computer for decent sound.
