Drop BMR1 Nearfield Monitors Overview
Getting the BMR1 speakers on their stands is quite easy. Once on their stands you’ll see that they are pretty thin and don’t take up much space at all. I have the speakers in a vertical orientation, but you can also use the stands to have the BMR1’s in a horizontal orientation.
On the bottom of each stand is a set of rubber feet so the speakers won’t move around on your desk all that much.
The speakers themselves have a very industrial look to them as they do not ship with the grills. This exposed look also is great for sound as there is no interference with sound coming out of the speakers. Each monitor features a 2-inch full-range balanced mode radiator, hence why these are called BMR1. Using BMR drivers Drop was able to develop a speaker with a smaller footprint.
If you are not the biggest fan of the industrial look of the speakers Drop does offer grills. These will set you back $25 for a set and are available in a handful of colors. We received black grills, but they are also available in sage, orange, purple, white, and raw steel. These different colors really allow you to customize the BMR1’s and match them to your setup. The grills are made of coated steel with an ABS frame. They simply click right on to the speakers as they are magnetic.
On the back of each monitor you’ll find some connections. On the main monitor you’ll find a power connection, mode selection button, 3.5mm AUX out, 3.5mm headphone, 3.5mm in, and a proprietary connection to connect the two speakers. The second monitor just has the speaker connection on it.
