Alesis Announces M1 Active 320 USB Speakers / Audio Interface

Alesis has announced the M1 Active 320 USB monitors for computer music production enthusiasts. The new Alesis 320 USB-audio speaker system delivers a new proposition for USB audio playback and capture — the speakers double as an audio interface.

Use a USB cable to plug the speakers directly into your computer, and you’re in business. Alesis claims that no special drivers are required. The audio inputs consist of a 1/8″ stereo mini plug, two 1/4″ connectors and RCA.
