Cons:

  • Although this monitor is highly versatile, it fails to produce sufficient volumes that are required for live performances. It’s great for personal monitoring but it’s not good enough for live sound mixing.
  • The subwoofers are placed on the right panel, which may be inconvenient since they are out of the range of vision. You can’t look at them while mixing or performing, so you have to rely on your ears alone for this monitor. It’s not ideal but it saves space on the monitor itself.

Conclusion:

The M-Audio AV32 is a very versatile monitor that can be used in a variety of ways. It can be mounted on a stand or rack for PA applications, or it can be played on top of the desk. The monitor delivers good quality sound and has great features and versatility and makes it one of the best all-around studio monitors you can buy. If you’re looking for a portable monitor for live performance, however, your money may be better spent on another model with better sensitivity and more volume output.

FAQ:

Q: Are M-Audio AV32 speakers any good?

A: The M-Audio AV32 is a computer speaker, no doubt about that.

Q: Are AV32 monitors good for home recording?

A: Anyone who is setting up a home recording studio can benefit from using these monitors. They’re compact enough to fit in any room, even a small apartment with limited space.

Q: What is the M-Audio AV series?

A: The AV series is M-Audio’s newest line of speakers and were first available in 2015. This series improved on the previous monitors by removing the front grill – this meant that the speaker cones were capable of a deeper and more accurate sound.

Q: Are Av42 speakers better than AV32?

A: First the good news: They sound a lot better than cheap computer speakers, with both having more bass and a fuller sound. Unsurprisingly, the AV42s sound considerably better: They’re rated at 20W per channel rather than 10W for the AV32s, but as well as the extra volume, they sound fuller, more refined, and clearer.
