expiredM-Audio’s BX5 Active Studio Monitor drops to $75 shipped, today only (Reg. $150)

Today only, as part of its DealZone, B&H Photo offers the M-Audio BX5 Carbon Active Studio Monitor for $74.95 shipped each. Normally $150, this beats Amazon’s all-time low and is the best available. If you’re looking for quality studio monitors that won’t break the bank, 50% off can score you two for the price of one. I’ve personally used these monitors and they’re great quality for the price. Reviews are light, but M-Audio is a well-rated brand at Amazon.

Woodwind & Brasswind (97% positive over the past 12 months w/ 68,733 total ratings) via Amazon is offering the M-Audio Keystation 61 II 61-Key USB MIDI Keyboard Controller for $84.99 shipped right now. That’s about half the price it still fetches at Guitar Center/B&H and is the best price we can find.

Perfect for beginner and experienced musicians alike, this is a full-size 61 key MIDI controller with touch sensitivity, pitch bend/modulation wheels and hardware transport to control playback in Logic (or other DAWs). It comes with SONiVOX Eighty-Eight Ensemble (“a world-class virtual piano instrument”). Rated 4.2/5 stars from 150 Amazon customers.

As well as being the best selling powered speakers (don’t require an amp) on Amazon, they have 4-inch polypropylene-coated woofers, 1-inch Ferro fluid-cooled silk cone tweeters, RCA inputs and more. They are rated 3.9/5 stars from only 30 Amazon customers, but just about all the M-Audio monitors have 4+ ratings from hundreds.

Amazon has the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Recording Audio Interface for $99 shipped (matched at Sweetwater for Black Friday). That’s about $50 under the original listing, $1 under our previous mention and within $10 or matching the best pre-owned prices on Guitar Center.

With two high quality mic-pres (inputs) and 24-bit/96KHz sample rate, we are most certainly talking about a higher recording quality than your built-in option.

M-Audio BX8 D2 8-inch Active Studio Monitors (pair) $349 shipped (Reg. $499)

A deal popped up on Woot for the M-Audio BX8 D2 130W 8-inch Two-Way Active Studio Monitors (pair) this morning for $404 shipped. A nice deal considering how long its been since these dipped that low, but B&H has them on for just $349 shipped right now. That’s $250 off the original $600 price tag, $150 under Amazon, and the best price we can find. We haven’t seen them go lower since Black Friday 2013.

The PreSonus Bluetooth speakers can be a great option for home studio monitors, but in my opinion you need the 8-inch Kevlar woofers if you’re going to take your audio seriously. Along with those, the BX8 D2 have 1.25-inch tweeters, rear porting, magnetic shielding to reduce hum/unwanted noise, and are powered so you don’t need an amp or anything.

They have a 4.5/5 star rating from over 50 Amazon customers.
