Monoprice has their excellent 8" 120W RMS powered studio monitors on sale this week (until 7/17/16) for $179.99 per pair with free shipping. Usual price is $254.84 per pair plus ~$25 shipping, so this is a savings of approximately $100. These are reported to be based off of the M-Audio BX8 that sell for $480 or more per pair. The bang-for-buck here is outstanding as these studio monitors sound superb. I also have a pair of Eve Audio SC207 active studio monitors, and I am very impressed with the performance and value of these Monoprice monitors.

Also on sale is their accompanying 10" 200W RMS powered studio subwoofer for $197.99 with free shipping. Usual price is $219.99 plus ~$20 shipping, so this is a savings of approximately $43. This sub appears to be based off of the Mackie MR10S that sells for $300. Pairs well with either the 5" or 8" powered studio monitors to fill in down to around 30Hz.

As of 7/14, use promo code: PROJECT, for an additional 25% off orders of $300 - $1000; this promo code runs through 7/21, after the promotional savings on the monitors and sub ends on 7/17. Add both the studio monitors and the sub to your cart for an additional $94.50 of savings on the two items, bringing the total cost of the pair of 8" monitors and 10" subwoofer to $283.48 with free shipping. This is a steal! Thanks to LGCubana for the heads up on this promo code.

Do note that as with other powered studio monitors, volume control is on the rear as they are intended to be used with an audio interface (such as the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2), a DAC that allows volume control from the DAC itself or from the playback device, or a passive preamplifier with volume attenuator (such as the Schitt Sys). A DAC or audio interface is highly recommended from a performance standpoint as well. Various adapter cables converting 1/8" stereo, 1/4" stereo, or RCA stereo to XLR or TS/TRS can be used to connect these to various sources.

I believe that this is the lowest price that I've seen on these, for the three plus years that I've been tracking them.

Currently, I'm using them as center channels; connected to two separate AVRs, via this cable: XLR --> RCA cable []

Originally I had them connected to an iPod dock's line out (with the same XLR cables) and they were excellent.

You would need a pre-amp or a receiver with line level (RCA) output, to feed them.

Dedicated RCA --> XLR converter cables, instead of conventional speaker wire

Be aware that they don't have a sleep function. You have to turn them off, when not in use.

They have a decent low frequency register, but they don't replace the need for a subwoofer, for movies.

Wouldn't be my choice for left/right mains.

As mentioned by LGCubana, the deal just got sweeter if buying both the monitors and the sub, which can now be had for $283.48 with free shipping, for a total savings of approximately $238, using the promo code PROJECT to get an additional 25% off orders of $300 - $1000. Add any necessary cables to your order and the savings apply to the whole order. I have updated the main post with this promotion.

This is an incredible value for a 2.1 system, and the additional savings makes it easy to fund an audio interface or DAC for convenient control and optimal sound quality.

Thanks to LGCubana for the heads up on the 25% off promo code!
