Last February, I lost my home studio (and 30+ years of work) to a fire. After a long and sometimes frustrating adventure, we are finally back in our home, and the insurance is beginning to pay for replacement items.
So, I'm here to ask about the current state of studio monitors (of the audio kind). I have about $1100 to spend on monitors/amp combination and am looking for recommendations - either passive speakers and amp or active speakers. What do you all love?
For reference, I had a set of JBL 4480's and a Crown D-60 amp. While quite old, I was comfortable with the sound of them (read - I knew how they translated), and I didn't find them as harsh or fatiguing as some of the newer low cost alternatives that I am hearing in the local Gtwang Centers (like you can really hear anything there!)
Sorry to be so long winded - let me know what you think!
