USB Studio monitors & audio interface in one

Alesis's latest product, the M1 320 Active is a convenient package for the jet setting producers or DJs that need to lug around the minimal amount of equipment to keep the music rolling out. With these speakers, there's no need to lug around an extra sound card to record and capture audio.

  • These active monitors have built in amps and plug in to the USB slot of any computer. They also have a pair of ¼" and RCA inputs plus a stereo mini jack. A headphone output is also provided for privacy.
