Samson MEDIAONE M50 Powered Monitor Speakers Review

A compact and neatly designed package, the Samson MEDIAONE M50 is a powered monitor speaker system that offers very good sound at a bargain price. The Samson MEDIAONE M50 is easy to use and compact enough to fit in most spaces. They were designed to be used as monitor speakers in a computer, or bookshelf workspace. A headphone jack is provided on the front panel of the control speaker. When the headphones are engaged the speakers will automatically shut off. The available sub-woofer output feature on the Samson MEDIAONE M50 allows the owner to add additional bass via a powered sub-woofer to the system.

Sonus Faber Sonetto VIII Speaker Review

The Sonus faber Sonetto VIII floorstanding speakers not only look like a million bucks but sound that way too. And the Sonus faber Sonetto VIII speakers aren’t even Sonus faber’s top of the line! Everyone who walked into my living room during this review had the exact same reaction to them - “Oooooooh! – What are THOSE?” Although they are quite large, they have the highest visual acceptance factor of any speakers I’ve yet reviewed, and they sound every bit as great as they look.

Revel Performa M126Be Bookshelf Speaker Review

The Performa M126Be loudspeakers are part of Revel’s popular Performa series. The Revel Performa M126Be speakers are bookshelf-sized and are intended to be stand-mounted. Although the speakers can serve as side or rear surrounds, their price and performance make it unlikely that too many will be used for that purpose. These are superior speakers for smaller rooms where articulation, detail, and imaging are the main goals.
