I got a pair of A7´s here.
I connected them directly to my DAW, because I`m still waiting for my monitor
controller. I can tell you that they are very loud, so loud that I had to turn all my
DAW-internal volume levels down to a minimum (damn I need this controller
because the volume control on the A7´s isn´t very precise at its lower end.
I`m into hip hop too, but I must say that I`m not really cranking up the volume
very often - I like my hearing and would like to keep it
My room is about 23 m².
I don´t got a sub yet, and I never heard the P11A, but in my opinion the A7´s
sound very very good- better than all other monitors I tested in this price range.
Hope this helps, LZA
