Akai RPM3 Production Monitors with USB Audio Interface
  • Effective and versatile little monitors. They are very loud for the size of the monitors and think they have a perfect sound.
  • They are small, but the sound delivers a very satisfying sound.
  • These guys are tiny - but they don't look like a cheap product.
  • The sound is excellent for the size, and I love the versatility and the ability to plug 1/4" jacks into the back as well as the USB into the computer.

What customers say about "Audio"
 
Akai RPM3 Production Monitors with USB Audio Interface
  • At a reasonable volume, that is still plenty loud to hear fine details in music, they don't heat up at all.
  • They have great low end response for being so small.
  • Can hear every note clear as day every strum every touch of the string you can hear it all. Beautiful sound.
  • They sound amazing, I can run them at just over whisper level and still hear all the definitions in the sound.
  • Great little speakers. Good bass, clear highs. Well built. I recommend these for those who do not need their sound to reach concert volume levels.

What customers say about "Features"
 
Akai RPM3 Production Monitors with USB Audio Interface
  • I like having them around. I also really like that you can connect via 1/4", RCA or USB.
  • Lots of inputs and outputs make these speakers very versatile, I use them to practice my mixing.
  • They actually sound decent; a little boomy, but better than I thought they would for the price and size.
  • Has problems when plugging headphones into it, when I do plug in headphones and then unplug, only one of the speakers will work.
  • The generated bass sounds very artificial and can overwhelm the higher frequencies.
