    They should be ok for mixing, but not for mastering. Mastering is an art that ask far more than cheap monitors.. ;)

    Unless you have a perfect room and wonderful equipment, it finishes with the mix. In fact I'm not even sure that nowadays, mastering is even a separate process in a single one place project. I see a value in taking a product as good as you can get elsewhere to improve it, but so much of what people now call mastering isn't - it's just remixing and polishing. In my humble view it's the audio version of the video/movie colorists job. Something that needs Grade 1 monitors, properly aligned and suitable brightness levels. I'm a poor colourist, and I suspect my mastering ears are compromised too.

    They should be ok for s first set of speakers. They are not really aimed at professionals, tho monitors are fairly subjective, and alot of pro's use the modesr KRK rokits.

    You will need to treat your room with lots of bass trapping, and some mid/ high absorbers for the speakers to work as intended.
