    Hey guys,

    I know, I know... Here it comes another one of those threads.

    The thing is I can't decide which 5'' studio monitors to get. I've been inclined for the yamaha's hs5 but from some reviews I read and from these guys they sound a bit too "boxy" with a nasty resonant peak on the mids. I've been trying to get some information on the new Mackie's MR5 MK3 which look very nice as well, but there's not too much info on it.

    Do you guys know anything about these? Or is there any other pair of monitors around 300 euros that you would suggest?

    Peace.

    Go too your local audio equipment store and if they have the 5" you have test them out and see which one is more pleasing to the ear

    Also go to the store page and look at the type of frequency it gives out

    I hear the JBL LSR305 are the best 5" monitors in that price range.
