    I need advice on buying a new set of studio monitors. I'll mainly be doing music mixidowns, and a little film post work and some light mastering jobs. Heres the catch...I don't want to spend over $650.
    I'm seriously considering the Tannoy System 600 monitors.
    Has anyone heard these? Dones anyone have any suggestions for monitors that would be better?

    If you don't want to spend more than $650, then please move this thread over to the recording forum.
    We have suggestions about good monitors but the price is much higher than the price you stated.

    when i worked in a musicstore i copenhagen i was told to sell tannoy monitors because we had the import of tannoy in denmark...

    system 600... 800... etc.

    i always gave my customers a mixed cd to listen to..... and they could switch between different monitors... tannoy's and others

    then i would leave the room and let them listen....and choose

    they NEVER chose tannoy's!!!!

    and if you ask me... almost all monitors on earth sounds better (and louder)

    there's no excuse for taking a bunch of cd's to a shop that you trust and listen.... then borrow the two models you like best and listen to them at home....
