M1Active 320USB is the most versatile studio monitor Alesis has ever built. M1Active 320USB is a pair of two-way active studio monitors that play from 80 Hz to above 20,000 Hz. Priced attractively for any studio's budget, M1Active 320USB monitors perform with a degree of linearity, clarity, and neutrality typically reserved for monitors that cost much more.
In addition to their capabilities as traditional monitor loudspeakers, M1Active 320USB also function as a USB audio interface. Audio from connected sources can be recorded to your computer: keyboards, mic preamps, guitar effects, DJ mixers, or standard CD and tape players can all easily connect directly to M1Active 320USBand be recorded into your computer. And when it's time to listen back to your mixes, that same USB cable sends the audio from computer to your M1Active 320USB monitors. No complicated interfaces required and no messy cable tangles. The USB digital-audio interface is plug-and-play compliant, requiring no driver installation for use with Mac or PC. and M1Active 320USB is compatible with most computer-audio software including Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) applications, editors, sequencers, and more.
Alesis built M1Active 320USB around our popular three-inch polypropylene low frequency driver for full, smooth response in the lows and our one-inch silk dome high frequency driver for brilliant clarity in the highs. The low-resonance cabinet is ported on the rear panel for bass extension to an impressive 80 Hz, and a bass boost switch offers further low-frequency enhancement to accommodate for room conditions requiring a little more output in the low end.
When you reach for M1Active 320USB's convenient front-panel volume control, you can be confident that the power you need will be there with its active, self-powered design. Like the rest of the M1Active series, the bass driver is magnetically shielded, so there's never an issue of placement near computer screens, LCD monitors, or hard drives.
Three stereo-analog inputs: 1/4" TS (pair), RCA (pair), and 1/8" TRS, plus a stereo-digital USB input enable you to connect any audio source for playback or recording through M1Active 320USB. A front-panel stereo headphone output mutes the loudspeakers when connected, so you can mix in privacy. A voltage-switchable power supply makes the speaker system perfect for great sound anywhere in the world.
M1Active 320USB is the most world’s most flexible monitoring system. Unparalleled convenience, peerless value, and of course, great sound are the Alesis hallmarks.
