What is a studio monitor in your opinion? What are your requirements?

 

Assuming you are talking about photography: Basically there are three standard technologies: TN (twisted neumatic), VA (vertical alignment) and IPS (In-plane switching). You propably want IPS due to it's big viewing angles but keep in mind that it does smear a little bit if the backlight panel is low resolution or plain out bad. Mine is perfectly fine tho. MicroLed would also be good and have way better contrast but would also cost a lot since it is cutting edge.

I am NOT a native english speaker and use translate a lot, please do not take it literally and bear with me.

Considering this is in the Audio section of the LTT forum i think she means Speakers, sometimes they are called Monitors when they are made for mainly professional enviroments.

First of all, what is your maximum budget? That's the first number one.

 

And may I ask why speakers in studio monitor? There are studio headphones that are way better while you can use your current monitor(s).

If you're in the U.S, find yourself a pair of M-Audio BX5a's. They're usually pretty cheap, and I've used mine for about...10 years now. You can get em for about $200.

 

They have a nice flat bass response which makes them good as reference monitors for mixing and mastering music. The BX8a's are also pretty good, but they do cost a bit more since they do have larger speakers. Same thing with the KRK Rockit 5's or 8's, although those have a much more pronounced bass than the M-Audio units.

Studio headphones are good, but if you're gonna get reference speakers for studio use (tracking, mixing, mastering etc), studio headphones don't even come close to a set of studio monitors.

Best monitors for different budgets: (priced roughly low to high)

 

Tannoy Reveal 502

 

JBL LSR308P MKII (I currently own a pair of these)

 

Adam Audio T5V

 

Adam Audio T7V

 

Kali Audio LP6

 

Focal Alpha 50

 

Yamaha HS8

 

Kali Audio LP8

 

Adam Audio A5X

 

Genelec 8020D

If you give us an exact budget for a pair of monitors, we can help further. Monitors can get extremely expensive easily. :)

 

 

 

LTT's Resident Porsche fanboy and nutjob Audiophile.

 

If you have any questions about ultra high end audio (Or any speakers or audio gear!), don't be afraid to shoot me a message, or mention me.

 

Spent over 960k on audio gear, still trying to increase sound quality.

 

For a guide on Microphones and Interfaces, I strongly suggest scrolling through @The Flying Sloth's guide.
