Hiya guys, I'm looking at geting some monitors but don't know what ones to go for. I had look at other threads but they didn't really help me. I got budget £150-£200 i can go bit higher. Anyone got any recomandations?

Do i need one or two monitors?
Do i need amp to power monitors or can i just get plug straight in mixer? Rather not have amp.
Can i use monitors on PC for production?

Any help would be great thanks guys :)

Two, unless you wanna write everything in mono.

Depends if they're active or passive. Active plug straight into whatever you're using, pc/mixer etc, whereas passive are powered by the amp.

Yeah, what were you planning on using them for?



Can't point you in the right direction unfortunately, im actually looking for pretty much the same thing :P

Put my amp and speakers in storage when i moved to dam, now theyre in a crate in somerset somewhere, not gonna be able to get em till september i think, thought i may aswell upgrade.

Try the monitors that Mackie make. They are quite reputable for studio monitors.
Or KRKs are very reputable too. I think it would be worth you getting a sub when your funds may allow this.
