    I want to kill myself should I use this small rock or a short stick? (Either way it's going to be very painful.)
    Get monitors,
    headphones=no good
    computer speakers= no good

    Nor should it be.
    It costs money to make this stuff.

    If you could buy the appropriate tools for "cheap," would you perform surgery on yourself?

    Getting the correct tools to do the job costs money. Buy cheap monitors, get bad sound...there's a link there.

    Training, education, practice and money...these are the steps to getting a good sound.

    Otherwise, pay somebody who can do the job well and does own a great pair of monitors.

    Cheers -

    how about you work and save up some money?

    also - you can get a pair of reasonable studio monitors for under $400. find a way to earn $40 per day for 10 days. no crime!

    Yamaha HS-50's just went down in price AGAIN. Now I think they are only $199 each, minus any discounted or B-Stock you can find...

    JBL also has the LSR2325 for about $200 each. They're not that bad at all.

    Heck, if you want to get really cheap, M-Audio and Samson has pairs that start at $150.

    as long as it's legitimate then who cares. if you have studio stuff now, then you've had money before. why not earn more money and buy more studio stuff.

    i cant believe this is a thread.

    I cannot reccomend those monitors enough! I use them! The only critisism I had was that the low end was somewhat lacking....so I bought the matched sub. BRILLIANT! Great value too!

    Oh man, when paired with the HS10 the whole system REALLY kicks! I have been wanting that sub for a little while now to match my HS50's. I think they are great near field monitors for the price. I would have to suggest inserting an EQ before each one to get a more flat response. They have somewhat of a nice bump in the 2k-4k range that is overemphasized in your mix and kinda harsh on the ears for long periods of time.
