    Which monitors would you recommend for a budgeted user but will do a good job in mixing?

    and what are the differences between powered and unpowered monitors?

    Sorry for posting a repetitive topic :oops: im still new to these forums. I will try and redirect this topic then to a more specific one.

    How would you guys compare the KRK Rokit RP5's to the M-Audio BX5A's

    and maybe, how would you compare them to any other active monitors that you think are better than the RP5's and BX5A's that are also in the same price range.

    hm, ok...

    i don't know where are you located! but i assume in the states as most of ROers. all advice about monitors, especially in the range you asking for will always remain subjective, please don't get me wrong i can certainly tell you which one i would choose... but that will not guarantee that you will be happy with it, too.

    all monitors in this range will not be the ultimate choice anyway, all of the monitors in this pricefield will have "issues" you have to learn and work around... however really the best is you listen to them yourself...
    i don't know where are you located! but i assume in the states as most of ROers. so you can easy take a day go to several pro supplies take your fave CD with you and listen... listen.

    i personally like the genies by far most, clear, flat, loud, incredible amount of natural bass for their size, very good build quality... lots of people say the yamahas rule, because they are more accurate, i think it's a matter of taste.


    it's really more important that you choose what your ears like most! first point, set them up propperly and treat your room accustically! second point, that makes also a massive difference!! and then "learn" your speakers and there sonic behavior! third point and you will come up with good mixes.... no. 4

    i am afraid that's the best advice I can give you.
