Apparently, the original BX5 was the best-selling monitor speaker in the United States in both 2009 and 2010. This revised version picks up where its predecessor left off: these are compact, affordable monitors that definitely punch a good deal above their weight.
The BX5 D2s have a slightly subdued appearance, but they’re certainly not ugly. Connections and volume controls are round the back, so you might want to ‘set and forget’ the levels to save rooting around there later.
In use, the BX5 D2 monitors are impressively punchy and will do the job perfectly well if you’re making pop or dance music. In fact, they’re an ideal first set of monitors, though if you’re looking for something with more bass, you might want to check out the larger BX8 D2s.4 Stars
