I was looking for studio monitor speakers and came across these, Behringer Studio 50USB. They are $100 off, so I decided to give them a shot and I was not disappointed. These things are loud and maintain clarity at high volumes. I highly recommend them, especially for $69.

In my experience slickdeals links to products on sweetwater.com tend to not work, if so search.

Listening to a video on youtube of speakers is not going to give you a very good indication of how they sound. It will vary quite a bit depending on their recording equipment as well as how they process the video as well as the compression that youtube applies to it. The only good way to know what a speaker sounds like is to hear it in person. Think about it why would these two sound the same?

Speakers -> Microphone -> Analog to Digital Conversion -> Video Processing/compression ->Digital to Analog Conversion -> Your amplification -> Your headphones/speakers -> Your Ears
Very good point and thumbs up for your great explanation! (I mean that sincerely).
The videos that lead me to my conclusion were like six (by DSAUDIO.review) where these specific Behringers are compared side-by-side to other speakers - very well recorded, varied music styles, no commentary, etc. If you check it out, I'm honesty curious what you think. Seems to me that this speaker demo channel is the only one thats actually helpful, albeit having the limitations that you cite. In this case, I think my conclusion is correct, at least for me and my ears, because literally every other speaker in the comparisons (with the exception of one which I wouldn't get if they paid me, ha ha) sound MUCH better, to me. It's not scientific and audio is subjective of course, but I'm 99.9% sure that these Behringers would annoy me in person, badly. No disrespect to OP who seems to have different listening needs, or to Behringer either.
It's all a crap-shoot. The ONLY way to accurately assess a pair of studio monitors is in-person, in an acoustically treated room. If the room is not properly acoustically treated (which probably 99% of rooms aren't) you might as well pull a number out of a hat.... or just choose the cheaper monitors, because you have no reference to go by. Absent room treatment,.. room modes, bass build-up, reflections, etc., play havoc on our hearing.. or what we think we're hearing. This is why professional studio albums are mixed in meticulously treated mixing rooms.

Thumbs up for good discount. However, I listened to sound and sound comparisons on YT with my good headphones, and these sound pretty awful IMO. Too bad, so sad. : (

Any other monitors you know in a similar price point?

Is there not a way to adjust volume on these without PC? I just want to connect these to my turntables and a mixer, without having to bring a laptop into equation

I was considering using these as surround or presence speakers for my Yamaha RX-V765 Receiver (Old I know but still serves me well). But it appears that the speakers only accept digital output via USB, XLR or TRS. (TRS? That's new to me. I've heard of TSR via old school D&D though lol/joke)

I'm assuming that this product is designed for professional musicians and I should look elsewhere for cheap but decent surround speakers for conventional home audio receivers correct? I'm not sure how you would connect typical speaker wire terminated with banana plugs to this; perhaps an adapter?

The "input trim" knob on the back?

Yes, I have them connected to my audio interface, that controlled the volume.

No, not that I'm aware of. Seems like there are some good choices at $100 if I can go to a 4" woofer. This deal is untouchable on paper, but I'm going to wait for another slick deal. I noticed that speaker discounts became rare during the supply chain back-up. Hoping we'll see some deals now.

They don't have bluetooth if you're looking for PMs with that capability

If you want real powered studio monitors (flat sound), it's not happening for $69 a pair. A pair of KRKs for $300 is a small price to pay for something you won't regret.

You're right. Those KRK's are a good start for a reference level speaker. I'm very happy with the KALI's I bought a few years ago in that price range. Very clean. They're going for around $200 to $250 a pair, sometimes under $200. Worth checking out.

I have other Behringer equipment in my studio that are quite good, and real values. I have an interface and patchbay from them. Great prices for reliable gear. I don't think I'd consider these speakers, though. Depending on return policy, it might be worth testing them out. But I wouldn't expect much.
