Best monitors

Postby ujwl » Fri Aug 27, 2004 3:46 pm

Anybody have suggestions for best entry-level monitors?

I'm looking for something $500 or less, as long as I can get something good enough for mixing on. There a lot of companies that claim to have accurate near-fields in this range, but I don't want to get something that really won't do the trick.

I'm want them for producing electronica/dance tracks.

Mackie 824's are my favorite for $1300 a pair! However, the Event TR8 sound just as good......almost the same for $499 a pair!
A whole lotta boom for the bucks!

Haven't heard the events....but I was impressed by some Sampson Rubicon's recently. Very clear and transparent sound, maybe a little light on the bass, but not a problem for an average room.

These are great for dance music and you'd be hard pushed to find a better set for this kind of money.

I have been hearing goods thing about the ADAM A7 for mixing, they may be a little above budget but it is truly worth saving and buyin good monitors the first time so youare not spending another $800.00 in a years time.

All the best.

A7 with the Adam Sub10 here for doing Techouse. Very nice combination. and Got a pair of CMS65's myself, they are more or less perfect for my house and techno productions.

Just would have said the same, but because of the limited budget a pair of AX5 might be fine.

And yes, the ADAM's ARE valid for electronic music (more than most others) because of their extreme high frequency emphasis. With electronic music, digital noise will occur and this is best recognized by such precise high frequency speakers used in the ADAM's (and the EVE's too :-) )

Honestly the ADAM's have their problems too of course, and for dance they should (with AX5 "must") be accompaigned by a sub woover with precise bass monitoring. For some guys headphones are another help.

If you have the money, look for the ADAM A77X. It will meet most cases of mixing without a sub woofer, because of it's second bass driver. Best and loved are the S3X. No woofer needed and best bass image is available.
