I read many posts last night about monitors, prices, placement, quality, etc etc the thing is... I'm still wondering whether I should buy a pair of monitors, since some people say that it's not worth spending a few hundred dollars in cheap ones, and that you should rather get something on the high-end area, otherwise rather than spending you're wasting money. I've got a Juli@ interface, which gives me the option of having either trs balanced or rca unbalanced outputs, and was thinking of buying monitors for recording AND mixing (if possible). would you recommend a good pair of monitors for it that wouldn't be prohibitevely expensive and would still do the job?? should I connect them to the trs balanced outputs of the interface or can I make do with the rca? (my guess is go balanced...) I've been looking around for what I can get around here in Buenos Aires, and found, for the budget I'm considering (maybe 250 u$s) M Audio Studiopro 3 Samson M3A Alesis M1 Active 320 but I still have to go to the music shops (my research was on the internet shops, sth the likes of e-bay) and browse then and there... OR... should I just stick to my old-friend hifi stereo and record and mix with it and see what happens? I'm interested in recording primarily synths, guitars and basses, not so sure about vocals well... any help will be highly appreciated!!! thanks!
