    yeh i mean they are shit hot for mixing, i love um

    just what ive heard about mackie and yamaha being industry standard

    i can always try out my krks but from reviews and interviews ive read, a majority of people who kno what they are talking about tend to go for mackie or yamaha

    it would be alot easier yeh deffo lol

    only problem my decks are in my garage and the computer i use for production is in my room

    so i really need a 2nd set of monitors because i am playing tracks back thru my headphones atm

    which isnt ideal

    Listened to a couple of pairs of Mackies in Cape Town recently and the Alesis ones i was comparing them to (at half the price) smashed the shit out of them.

    Listened to some KRKs too, and although its a beefy sound i didnt know how accurate it was. Didnt sound transparent like some of the others. Might be a bit too much low end, but to be honest they'll be fine as long as you know how things sound different on them.

    I've got a pair of HS80M's .. compared to the Mackie's .. imo. .. similar - but WA-AA-AY cheaper .. ~ compared to RP8's more distinction on all ends .. Lows are more felt than heard, highs are much cleaner --

    I didn't know about the industry standard stuff though, but that's cool. heh.:broke_ima
