- The speakers are perfect for learning how to mix, producing your first music tracks, and for multimedia creation as well.
- They can also be used as high-quality general multimedia speakers (with a TV set, for example).
Admittedly, up until now, Hurcules is not a company that has been on our radar, but based on what we have seen in their specifications, the M5s will be an interesting competitor to the popular KRK RoKit RP6, so we are excited to give them a try.
