    What does everyone use for studio montiors?
    I've been looking a bit, but I figure I'd ask for some opinions..
    Is it worth it to spend more?
    What company is best to look at?
    I'd like to find something around $800-$1000/pr. (Post prices in pounds if you like, i'll figure it out)
    Thanks!

    yeh, saw that thread after i posted this.. lol.
    so would the alesis mk1/2's do the trick? or would it be beneficial to look at a higher price range..

    id get some nice headphones.. you wont annoy your neighbours, could use them to mix, too and most probably get smoother sound.

    otherwise, why not test the alesis? if they doesnt suit you, you could send them back?

    At your price range I think you could go for DYNAUDIO. They're the hot shit like blowjobs back in the 20th century.

    well, like i said, you going to get better sound from headphones, but if you just have to have monitors, then defo the alesis. as i said before on these pages, i simply could not justify spending more than the £200 the alesis cost for someone who's a hobbyist with production.

    but if i was minted, id go for Adam's.(y)

    yeh, i've heard headphones are the best... the only problem i have with that is a paranoia that i might go deaf.. lol. I'm using some akg k151 dj headphones right now, and am pretty happy with the truth in their sound, but the loud-ass noises in close proximity to my ears are freakin me out. :p

    i do want to go big with my studio, and am only starting with the monitors cuz of the deaf issue so i'll definitely check out the alesis and others around that price range.. maybe look into some pro studio headphones too.

    thanks for the advice!
