Rated 4 out of 5 by from A very good near field monitorWhen positioned correctly, the Behringer MS-40 speaker sounds great. The bass goes low for the size of the woofer, which has a polypropylene cone with a rubber surround. The overall sound is like that from a pair of good audiophile headphones. I found the three input capability to be very useful. I can adjust the volume of them using the two volume controls. I like the phone jack for the headphones, as opposed to the 1/8 jack on my Roland MA-8 monitors. The tone controls affect the sound for the headphone.Unlike the Roland unit, which has a dome tweeter, the MS-40 has a ring radiator tweeter. They are not equal.The MS-40 is designed as a near field monitor where one wants the reflections from nearby surfaces off axis to be low, and to have the same response as that from the main beam. The design is good, and yields a sound similar to that from a high quality headphone such as the Sennheiser HD-600. To get this, the tweeters must be either at ear level, or aimed directly at your ears. Otherwise, the speaker will sound dull, with too much bass. With the MS-40 sitting on the table by the monitor, I needed to set the treble at 4 pm and the bass at 8am to get a good sound. With the speakers raised to ear level, the 12 noon position on the tone controls was correct. If you simply tilt the speakers, the treble level will change as you move to and from the computer screen, changing the angle between the tweeters and your ears.Problems: The left and right speakers have the tweeter at the top left on both. This made one tweeter be at a different distance and angle than the other. Also, the units had a strong smell of sawdust, from the high density particleboard in the cabinets. I was bothered enough by this that I shellacked the inside of the cabinets to get rid of the odor. But the quality of the sound overcame these annoyances. This monitor delivers a very good sound, definitely much better than the Roland MA-8.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Sound From a Small packageOverall the MS40's offer a great sound for the price. They offer a wide full range of sound that is very impressive for an all in one package of an amplifier and speaker combo. Sound can be made even better if matched with a good equalizer.
