Dynaudio BM5A MKII (Single)
Product Description for the Dynaudio BM5A MKII (Single)
Our BM 5A monitors have become something of a legend in monitoring circles, thanks largely to their accuracy, clarity, and that they can deliver a punch well above their weight. Now we have taken the original design and made it even better. The result: BM5A MKII nearfield precision monitors with ultra-accurate handcrafted driver technology.
The BM 5A MKII imparts all of the quality and power that you’ve come to expect from Dynaudio Acoustics but they have been re-engineered to take nearfield monitoring to new levels of performance. New features include our handmade drivers that offer the best in quality and accuracy. The woofer offers longer excursions so stays linear for longer, resulting in a cleaner, tighter bass response.
This louder and more accurate bass is matched at the top end with a high-resolution soft dome tweeter that delivers an unparalleled response. The added waveguide ensures less acoustical reflections and a more accurate sweet spot for the listener, resulting in a much better monitoring experience.
We’ve matched the drivers perfectly to the BM 5A MKII’s custom designed dual amps to deliver maximum 117dB SPL while maintaining extraordinary sensitivity, resulting in a louder, cleaner and more accurate sound.
The three integrated analog room filters allow you adjustment and compensation of the acoustical monitor placement at both Low, Mid and High frequencies e.g. adjusting for the bass boost at corner or wall placement as well as the potential high frequency console reflections.
With the BM 5A MKII we have taken an established industry standard and made it louder, clearer and more accurate than ever. With the BM5A MKII expect better monitoring across the entire frequency range.

Review by kell
I've taken my as regards posting here, as i wanted a "time in the trenches" review, rather than "these are the best, because I just bought them and haven't used them for real yet!".
After experimenting with room placement, etc, what i'm hearing on the monitors translates incredibly well. I do have to use cans to tweak the sub-60hz levels (a limitation on virtually any speaker without a sub), but everything else works on a large number of systems, with perhaps the occasional minor headphone-centric sorts of tweaks (slight adjustments in panning, etc).
Imaging is fantastic. the 50% left/right points are just as "hard" as the phantom center.
Feedback from customers and other engineers has been that the tonal balance of the mixes is spot-on, and they sound great. I couldn't be happier with these (though I'd love the sub, too!), and they've very nearly already paid for themselves.
I've had similarly priced mackie hr624's (the original versions), and these are a real step up. They're in a completely different category, IMO. (Posted on 8/23/12)
