Studio Monitor Reviews
Every pair of studio monitors will give you their own distinct sound. Yes, they will each sound quite different from one another that's why every pro studio has several different pairs of monitors.You should too in your home studio for creating the best mixes possible.
If you can only have one pair then it should be one that is very accurate and doesn't discolor the sound. If you can go to a large music store and listen to all the studio monitors they've got set up you'll notice how different they can be from each other. Below are some of the best studio monitors you'll find without getting into the 5 figure price range.
KRK Studio Monitors
Highly known and respected for their accuracy KRK studio monitors was founded in 1986 by Keith Klawitter, an audio engineer who got tired of using monitors that just didn't give him the clarity and accuracy he needed so he started building his own.
The HS80M's are true and accurate studio monitors in the same tradition as the very popular NS10's which were some of the most accurate studio monitors ever produced and used in just about every studio in the world at one point.
These are good home studio speakers suited for the desk top. They can't compete with the Yamaha's but are good bang for the buck at $149.
Read my full review on the M-Audio BX5a Studio Reference Monitors. These really nice for any home studio and can be bought new for under $250.
