Studio Monitor Advice Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

Hi,

I'm planning to buy some studio monitors. At the moment I'm using some B&W DM110 speakers in my studio setup but in my opinion they sound a bit "too great" to make a right mix. I'm searching for monitors with a more "dry" sound. I can't spent much more than € 400 - € 500 there I'm still a student and I don't earn that much money from doing the dishes in a restaurant. Now I went searching and found some affordable speakers from Mackie Big Grin . More specifically Mackie's MR5...

http://www.mackie.com/products/mrseries/

Someone has advice about these speakers? Would it be a good investment? Or someone knows a good alternative in the same price range? Smile

Greetz

i tested out the mr5's and the krk rp5's http://www.dv247.com/invt/21992/ and decided on the krk's. didnt really know what i was looking for so dont know if i made the right choice. but i think its all about getting to know your eqipment once youve got it to be honest. ive heard good things and bad things about both speakers.

Depending on where you live you might be able to find good deals on used monitors. I got a pair of Mackies off Craigslist in LA for a steal.

I've been told in a musicstore they where the best I could get in that pricerange (they are cheaper than say krk/mackie/yamaha) , but I haven't listened to them at the time, so I can't tell you from my own experience if they are any good.

@ mr sinister.
yeah we'd all love hr824's m8 but at £469 EACH i think they are just a little out of most peoples price range.

i tested both krk rokit8's and yam hs80m's mid last year in a side by side comparision test, and to my ears they both have similar mid and top end(nicely detailed), but the krk's seemed a little boomey to me, while the yams where nice and tight in the trouser department. hence im now the proud owner of hs80's, and fucking chuffed with them i am too.
best advice i can give is to take yourself off to a shop and have listen,
wot please's me might not please you.

thing with monitors is you can get decent mixes out of cheap 1's i guess its all about learnin the sound of them, cheap mointors do lie and so do decent mointors its all about knowning them with cheapish 1's, how ever long u use them you will learn how they sound and then you will be able to mix from that sound but if you go for high end mointors then obv. there have more honesty than cheaper 1's, ive used alesis mointors and they sound good, ADAM A7'S sound beautiful lol. Fostex 6301BX are very good midrange monitors very detailed like how they sound too. genelec's are fucking super sounding spesh the little 1's. woah they sound huge!

i heard that them china cones can help improve your system? or is that just bullshit?

some of the best mixing monitors, like studio standards, are usually cheap aux speakers ment for use on your outside patio. it just comes down to preference. you can make it with shitty little tinny monitors. i have done good mixes with $300 speakers and no sub. you just listen to some songs you know well, ealize they sound tinnier then usual, and that you will ahve to look at the readings to judge if there's any sub in the mix....
