    I read the post's about studio monitors...

    For a second monitors in the studio what you by...

    - M-Audio BX8
    - Samson Resolv 80a with Resolv 120a(subwoofer)
    - Event TR8XL
    - Fostex PM-2

    Passive: with the amp Samson Audio Servo 260
    - Event 2020 passiv. V.2
    - Event PSP 8

    Answer for you personal experience...

    By the way... active versus passive wins in this combat??? I think not but tell me...

    Be happy,

    p.s. - i like BX8 & Resolv 80a and the passive PSP 8... TR8XL are fine but for the price... :)

    Thank's for your help...
    The 824's are the Event PSP8 passive with the external amplifier?

    Between M-Audio Bx8 and Samson Resolv 80a, what choice for you?

    Ok. I'll bite ... I wouldn't choose any of them.

    In that price range, Yamaha MSP 5's, KRK V8's, if you can find them NS10m's ...

    Almost anything by Blue Sky, Tannoy, KRK, Hafler, Genelec, Dynaudio, JBL, Westlake, .... there are quite a few good ones out there. The cheap stuff is usually not that great to my ears ... I really hate the Event stuff ... and the 824's

    Hum... cheap stuff, i have the same feeling but when you have few money… what to do?

    By the way… i use Genelec 1031 APM in the studio and the “big” difference from Event 20/20bas V.2 is the bright side on the upper frequencies… nothing more… and some mudd low end, sometimes…

    I don’t plan to buy the Event 20/20 because they are expensive for my purpose…

    What you say about Behringer Truth 2031 A????

    I heard some rumors about Samson Resolv… they are vey nice for price and between M-Audio BX8(very harsh) and Event TR8XL(vey sweet in the mid’s but powerfull) are a nice shot…

    ProArc Studio 100 are vey nice to… but need amp… and are expensive for me...

    Keep on; help me with your knowledge… the amp is the number one in terms of first choice, some monitors have a bad amp and bad crossover...


    My the way what monitors use Daniel Lanois in Shine? The man sold the NEVE… don’t believe…tell me is a lie… the picture don’t show is face vey clean to me… is him?
