The ballots are in, the voting is done. I know I've started one or two studio monitor threads in the past, but now....this is it. I've done a lot of listening, questioning, and researching. For the people who are looking for, or already have studio monitors, what were you looking for when buying them?
My Final Decision...DA DA DA
Event Studio Precision 8's
Main contenders I reviewed were the Mackie HR824's, KRK V8's, Event Tuned Reference 8's. I had also looked at lower lines such as the M-Audio BX-8 and Alesis 1's. I didn't look at Genelecs or Dynaudio, mainly because they were far from my range (especially Dynaudio).
Things that sold me on Event SP8's
Silk Drivers (smooth highs)
Punchy Tight Bass
Nice trim options
..They look gorgeous!
I found my monitor. I almost bought them today, but decided to wait for my car to sell. Didn't feel like putting it on credit anyways.
What are you using and why?
