Behringer MEDIA 40USB monitor (set of 2) Product no.: 9000-0009-1474 Warranty period: This product comes with a 3-year warranty when you register it with Behringer within 90 days of purchase. If the product is not registered it has a 2-year warranty. The tweeters and woofers come with a 1-year warranty.


The Behringer MEDIA 40USB is a set of two reliable and robust digital monitor speakers. These carefully designed speakers are each equipped with two internal amplifiers - one for the tweeter and one for the woofer. A big advantage of a bi-amp system is that it delivers a super-linear frequency response for a particularly balanced sound. Furthermore, these speakers also give you the option of connecting a digital audio source such as a laptop via USB, or you can connect an analogue audio device via the jack or RCA inputs.


MEDIA 40USB: for media or music


With its pleasant yet powerful 40W sound, the MEDIA 40USB works fantastically as a speaker for your TV, audio installation or computer. It's also a great choice for monitor purposes, particularly if you're looking for a set of clear, basic monitors for making and editing music on the computer. And if you're just getting started and don't have any recording software yet, then you can use the impressively accessible Tracktion 4, which you can download for free after registering your new MEDIA 40USB!


Accessible monitors


The streamlined design of the MEDIA 40USB features a number of interesting extras that prove, once again, that Behringer has an eye for producing practical and affordable products. On the front, you'll find a convenient mini jack input for connecting your headphones, and next to it, you'll find the volume control, which is equipped with an LED ring that indicates the power output level.

I'm happy enough with these but they're not all I hoped for. Let's start with the bad. Firstly the volume pot at low volume isn't balanced. This isn't an unusual problem for volume knobs on anything but as I mainly wanted these as glorified PC speakers they'll often be at low volume. This was bad enough that I nearly returned these but the problem can be worked around by turning down the master on the source and up on the knob. Second, I couldn't find out before I purchased what the USB chip used was. It turns out to be C-Media CM102-A+/102S+. It does what it should but I was hoping for something better that potentially had ASIO drivers available but no.

The good news is that the active aspect of these is silent with no noise. Turn up the volume to full with no signal from source and the noise is very low indeed. That is really what saved me from worrying about the unbalanced volume knob. They sound good too. I'm currently using them as speakers rather than true monitors and am very pleased as they're obviously streets ahead of PC speakers. They're rear ported so get them up close to wall to improve the bass. The sound detail and stereo image is good but do appreciate you've only got small drivers so don't expect miracles.

So I'd recommend them, but the flaky volume pot took the shine off initially. I had some potential usage ideas for them, and one worked and one won't. They worked directly connected to a Raspberry Pi running as a streaming media player, but I won't be able to use them as an ASIO device on a diy edrum project. Truly versatile though, and handsome enough units too.
