    Anyone got an opinion on these monitors? Local GuitarCenter just got a trade in set and can get em for $500 (pair). Have digital, analog, and optical inputs.
    So...anyone got some input?

    Thanks much.

    I think you could do better. Try out a set of KrK's and some Emes. I think you will find them a lot better.
     
  3. Divo, is there any substance to back your statement?! I own the Ds-90's and am very happy with them. They are great monitors. I compared them to a few other active pairs of monitors and these where the ones that did it for me. Just my two cents,

    13 months late, fellas!

    Not that I don't appreciate the input.

    And...I don't like the DS90s, but I think its the room we have them in more than anything else. I think we'll take them out on the deck and mix. Probably a better environment at the moment!

    Jeff,
    Yeah, I saw the dates.. HeeHeeHee.. it just looked like a great opportunity to break out the "infamous sig line"... :D . We gotta figure out a way to get you a set of NS 10's and some nice big monitors to switch between.

    I have a friend with a pair of DS90s. I wasn't all that impressed with them. I love my Behringer monitors and my NS10s of course. I wouldn't mind looking into a pair of KRK V88 monitors when I get my bigger room.
