Hi everyone this is my first time in the forum, and I'm not english I'm Portuguese so I'm sorry about my writing. This is what's up: I need to buy studio monitor and I have a low budget (at most I can spend 400$). I can't go to a store and test these monitors my self because there are none around my shopping area. So I have been reading some reviews and overviews, and I have been reading a lot of theory about what the monitors are spouse to do and about acoustic and other things. So after a lot and alot of search and research I have came along whit this model and brands. Yamaha HS50M: In my conclusion they are Honest and natural what you hear is what you get and you will get it in any other speakers however the lack on bass and I need to hear the bass to know what I'm doing and I need to feel the kicks. Buying a sub is totally out of my range. Price: 372$ KRK RP5 G2: Okay this ones I have known that they have more bass. But the kind lie to you because what you listen on them is different in other speakers and that is not what I want. Price: 384$ ALESIS M1 ACTIV MK2 They sound crispy and honest. Some say they are the best on this price range. However I have read this review that say "The power supply on one of my speakers has just failed (after 3 years use). They cost £99 to replace (basically the cost of a new speaker). Alesis deny this is a common problem, but it obviously is the result of a design fault." This make me think a little because I want some monitors that I can rely on for a few years, and when I upgrade my studio I still can use them. Price: 380$ Samson Rubicon R6a I think thats the right model. I don't know a lot on this ones, actually I want any of you to tell me something about them Because I can get it for 322$. Price: 322$ Those are the monitors. I really think about getting the yamahas. Attention: My room doesnt have any acoustics treatment and is small. The monitors will have to be near a wall.
