Monitor & speaker choices for studio & home recording
Monitors vary greatly in quality, a top end recording studio speaker system may cost thousands and in many cases they are needed for the very best recording and mixing situations but it is possible to buy a good loudspeaker for less than a few hundred Dollars/Pounds/Euros.
As a visitor to this site you are probably looking to get a great sound and without having decent monitors there is no hope in getting a result that will satisfy. If you are on a tight budget you can buy decent self powered active monitors for just a few hundred Dollars, if you want to get something a bit more impressive, there is no limit to what you can spend.
Remember that the choice of loud speaker is a subjective thing, what someone else likes may not be to your taste and indeed, a monitor that sounds great somewhere else may not sound so good in your room. Because of this we suggest the following link to our favourite on-line retailer as they offer an excellent returns policy in addition to low prices. If you dofind that the monitor that you've chosen isn't right send it back for a refund.
