Hey guys what's up. This is my first post and I look forward to all your combined expertise. A friend of mine said I could get the answers I need on this site so here goes! Q: Which one of these studio monitors do you think is best overall? 1) M-Audio BX5a Deluxe 2) Yamaha HS50M 3) Event ALP 5 I'm going to be purchasing one of these pairs for my home studio set-up. I create rock, industrial, experimental, acoustic/ballad type of music and really want the best bang for my buck. The pricing on these isn't that much of a difference and I would also like to know what other monitors you guys would recommend instead of the ones listed above. I look forward to all your replies and we'll talk soon. Peace.
