Small monitors..

I am currently running a set of NS-10's plus some Mackie monitors in my studio. I need to get a pair of small monitors like the Auratone 5c's. Are they still available anywhere and if not has anyone got some suggestions?

Auratone's are not crappy at all expecially with
a nice amp. I personally like them a lot and they don't have the edginess of many small " baby speakers" If you need small speakers, as an alternative reference, you can go pretty much with everything as far as you learn/know what the speaker is telling you. JO

What I want is something to give me an idea how the mixes will transalate to a small 'ghetto blaster' type cd/radio.

I'm with you on this one...
I've been scouring pawn shops for an older boom box with line ins... I hate that manufacturers don't put them on anymore.

Picked up some little Radio Shack 4" full range boxs a couple of years ago when they switched badges or whatever. They work pretty well.

And CDRWs are my friend...

Best of Luck!

Here's something I've done from time to time - the built in speakers on my low budget TV set are about as tiny and crappy as one could find anywhere. The TV does have an audio input, fortunately - so I run my mixes through the TV speakers. If the bass distorts at low levels, i know i need to back off. If it still sounds like music, even through those POS speakers, I know the mix is in the ballpark.
