Apogee, one of the leading audio interface companies in the business, has just released its most affordable option for Mac yet. The new ONE for Mac is very much based on the company’s small-footprint ONE interfaces, but this time with a more focused approach just for Mac users. While you wont get the dual functionality of the previous generation iOS/Mac options, the new interface also won’t reach into your pocket quite as deep.

Amazon has an interesting home recording bundle available today. The PreSonus Audiobox Music Creation Suite is down to $179.99 shipped (matched at B&H). That’s $220 under the original listing, $70 below Guitar Center, the lowest Amazon has offered the bundle for and the best we can find. The interface and mic alone go for about $100 each.

Perfect for home recording or podcasting, the bundle includes the PreSonus M7 Condenser Microphone, PreSonus AudioBox USB 2×2 USB Recording Interface, the PS49 USB 2.0 49-key MIDI keyboard, HD3 studio monitoring headphones, powered 4-Port USB 2.0 hub and some bundled software (all of this gear will work with Logic Pro X, Pro Tools and more).

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.

expiredM-Audio Studiophile 4-inch Powered Monitor Speakers $80 shipped (Reg. $149)

Today only, B&H is offering the M-Audio Studiophile AV 40 Active Studio Monitor Speakers (pair) for $79.99 shipped. That’s about $70 under the original listing. These speakers still fetch full price at most retailers including Amazon. At $80 for the pair, this is the best price we have ever seen these speakers go for and about $50 less than the lowest (trusted) refurbished price we can find.

Certainly an upgrade from your built-in MacBook/iMac/PC speakers, these monitors will work with your system right out of the box with the included cables and feature:

  • 4-inch polypropylene-coated woofers – tight, accurate bass
  • 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters – clear, smooth highs
  • OptImage III tweeter wave guides – precision imaging for a balanced stereo field
  • 20-watt-per-channel amplifier with Class A/B architecture – professional design and fidelity
  • Magnetic shielding – reduces interference with other equipment, perfect for multimedia and video work

They have a solid 4/5 star rating from over 800 Amazon customers.

This set will work perfect with vinyl turntables right out of the box like this discounted Audio-Technica AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional Mac/PC compatible option. We also still have the Bluetooth equipped PreSonus monitors at their lowest price yet.

While you won’t be able to take them with you as easily as these discounted UE Mini Booms, it is sometimes nice to have a solid set of desktop speakers for your home or office setup. They are rated 4.7/5 stars from over 50 Amazon customers.
