    Monitors...

    Looking to get some monitors off dj finance .com

    Anyone had any trouble with the website in the past? other than the obviouse not paying when u should etc..

    Also the KRK's are what im looking into. What cable to you need in order to connect them to your mixer? looked at the back of them and couldnt work it out. Also is there braqckets available to wall mount them?

    Thanks in advance

    Re: Monitors...

    i got rokit 5's i think. sound is quality, pretty spot on but what i would say is if you do mix on them, dont crank them up full way for long periods of time cus they cant handle it at all

    Re: Monitors...

    yeah the sound quality is perfect at a decent level. starts clipping at higher levels though. easy to set up twin phono goes in the mixer then connect one phono to one speaker and one to the other

    Dunno what power your after, but I've had alesis active monitors, can't remember name by hand, 250w. Great little things for flat/bedroom . Good quality and pretty good price. Red and White on mixer to one red on left or right and White vice versa. Safe

    Re: Monitors...

    nah they are good for mixing on mate. its just that those kind of speakers are custom-ed towards the creation of music + i havnt used KRK before so i cant vouch but im sure they do the trick and i have seen people using them for mixing before in pictures on hre im sure

    I use mine for mixing and find them pretty good to be honest. I do run my mixer through my pc speakers as well though, which has a sub involved. Don't always use that though.

    Re: Monitors...

    I was thinking bout some KRK's too, they seem to get pretty good reviews and seem fairly all round. Would the conclusion be that they are perfectly fine to mix with, and if not, what would be a decent reccomendation for a simalar sort of price?
