    Thread name pretty much says it all..

    I have just started producing and realised how important good speakers actually are!..My budget is £150.. And thats still a tight budget for me so anything under would be good!!

    Also im not too sure on what sound card i have (let me know if u know a way i can check), but i think its built in.. All i know is that it needs the realtek HD sound drivers..

    Is it worth getting a new sound card while im at it?.. Hope not as i'm pretty tight on cash atm!!

    Cheers in advance!

    I'm in a similar situation mate.

    Annoyed with making music on my headphones (coz it ain't a real representation of wots playing) and now trying to work out whether its worth saving up £300 for a pair of mackies or spend a 1er on a pair of secondhand warfedales.
    any suggestions?

    I had to buy two 1/4" cables to go from my mixer into the speakers (one for left, one for right). Has your mixer got 1/4" outputs? These speakers have got 1/4" and XLR (Male) inputs.
