    Sup?

    I recently got my ATH M50´s and I really love them. Now I am looking for some cheap speakers to work with aside from this wonderful pair of cans. Yeah, I know I suck because I can´t afford some decent monitors but let´s make the best out of the worst situation. Which speakers to go with that are "kinda" suitable for monitoring purposes? My budget is 60£ somethings.

    Heard some nice words thrown at these:

    What you think? Any more suggestions?

    I use my Logitec 5.1 pc speakers. They treat me well, thinking about getting a splitter and doubling up!

    Considering you want speakers for monitoring purposes just save till you can actually get some really decent ones because once you get them and treat them well you wont need another pair for a very long time so it's definitely worth the investment. Just get used the m50's for the time being because they're an excellent pair of cans.

    You can probably get a cheap 2nd hand pair of KRK's for 200.

    Or if you work get then on finance at either Andertons or Dawson's. You can get interest free finance spread over 9 months
