Hey everyone, question about monitors here: Now this subject is not a "which one sounds better" because we all know that every set of ears has a preference and that there are good companies and bad companies. This is more of a "What company has a better reputation of a good product". I have been looking at the Yamaha monitors pretty heavily and two I have been looking at are the HS50M's and the MSP5's. The MSP5's are only 50$ (each) more than the HS50M's but I cant seem to find much information about the MSP's. I talked with my local retailer who has the HSM's on display and got a chance to listen to them and when I asked them about the MSP's they looked at me puzzled and claimed to never heard of them. I told them my findings about them and they said they have never heard of anyone buying them and told me in their opinion the HSM's are better. Now, this struck me as odd considering they don't have them in their sound room yet they swear by the cheaper pair. Another fact is they are listed on the companies website and if I bought them in the store they could ship them to me, so it leads me to believe that they weren't after the money because after I pointed out it was on their website, they still said I should go with the HSM, not the MSP. Does anyone have any experience with the two? Is the HSM a lower quality? Is the Extra 50$ each for the MSP's just glorified? Also, Similar question about the KRK's. I have heard they are a hit or miss, as they they are good if you get a good pair, but it is anyones guess as to which will be a good a pair and for how long. Thoughts on quality and longevity? My budget is $500 for a pair (I know it is low) but I am not churning multi-million dollar records. Any recommendations that I should go take a listen to is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
