Does anyone know if this would be OK or would it have a negative affect on the sound of the speakers at all?
I have a pair of the LSR4328P, and I've got no complaints about the sound, but you simply cannot touch the front of them without leaving your literal fingerprints in relief-form in the rubbery residue from the rubber breaking down chemically. Over-time they have changed from a slight rubberized touch to a very sticky, full blown adhesive feel. The entire front of the cabinet feels like the sticky side of gaffer tape now.
I'm in the market for some studio monitors for mixing Rock and Pop under $500. I don't necessarily want the monitors to sound great, I just want them to help me make tracks that will translate well.
I've decided to go for 5" speakers because
(a) they are much cheaper
(b) I don't think I really need a lot of bass, I'm not producing EDM, and not many people that listen to my mix will have speakers that can recognise the bass clarity I will be able to get with larger speakers. (Also, I don't want to invest in a sub.)
I am looking for good price and good quality studio monitors for mixing, recording, composing.
I found kind of interedting and cheap stuff.
So, it's JBL LSR305 and KRK Rokit 5 G3.
I heard a lot of good words about KRK monitors, but I was kind of disappointed. The sound quality was much better on JBL monitors.
KRK monitors seemed like Hifi monitors not like for studio.
What is your opinion? Have you ever tried those both monitors?
All opinions are intersted, I hope you could help me to make a good decision.
I notice JBL recommend using a sub too, I would have thought thT would just add to any low end issues you might have?
I'm in the market for new monitors. I'm not in a situation where I can easily go to a store and A/B pairs, so I've done the standard "read every last review and message board on earth" routine and landed on the JBL LSR4326P's. I land here for three reasons:
1. They are the right size for my small room.
2. My room has issues, and the room correction function is alluring
3. $1000 is just about what I want to spend.
Has anyone used this monitors. I wasn't able to find much information for these but I found them in a very good price. I used to mix on NS10 a lot. I'm mounting a small mixing/tracking room at home to do some of my ork and lo budget productions. Do you think this may ork?
I do mostly acoustical/jazz/fusion. Sometimes pop/rock too.
Do you think this will serve for a start.
Thank you in advance.
