The common saying that the ears are the ultimate judge in music production? To some extent they certainly are, but as we are now aware, they can also be fooled extremely easily. -- "How The Ear Works" (2011) by Emmanuel Deruty

Samson Resolv 50a Active Reference Monitors ($279.99). Forget the list price, these compact powered speakers are being sold virtually everywhere for the amazing price of $219 a pair! At first because of the low price I didn't take them seriously. Then I heard them in the Sam Ash store in New York City. No nonsense solid, rich, accurate sound for the price of a cheap boombox stereo. A musician friend bought a pair on the spot for a small recording setup. We set them up. Again, disbelief that speakers this cheap could sound so good!

Samsons Resolv 50a monitors are biamped with 50 watts for the 5.25-inch woofer and 25 watts for the one-inch ferrofluid-cooled titanium tweeter. And there's an active crossover. The ported, tuned cabinets are bookshelf-sized and fit in very tight spots. Each speaker has input connectors for a 1/4-inch TRS phone plug and RCA jack. They are sold in pairs only.

The 50a model is the entry level to a new line of Samson Resolv speakers. Each sounds much better than its price indicates. A good addition for any Resolv monitor is the Resolv120a powered subwoofer, a 10-inch speaker coupled with a 120W amp that drives bass in the 40 Hz - 180 Hz range. This sub, with a street price of about $200, has a built-in active crossover, phase switch, auto sleep mode and a mute control allowing easy on-off switching on the fly.
