    08/08/14

  • Yamaha HS50M

    Yamaha HS50M - "Pure, Unbiased Sound"

    08/03/14

    I needed a good studio monitor to fit on a smaller desk. My main studio is limited in space and I was careful to find smaller monitors that would still deliver a perfect sound. I went to a local music store and a trusted salesman told me I won't find…

  • Equator Audio Research D5

    Equator Audio Research D5 - "Excellent Mid-Range "

    07/16/14

    The D5s are powered monitors with a design that you don't find on many low cost speakers. The tweeter and woofer are combined in a single driver. They're quite compact, very sturdy and they fit nicely on my desk. Each speaker isn't heavy, weighing ro…

  • KRK RP8 G3

    KRK RP8 G3 - "Natural Sounding Monitors"

    07/15/14

    I previously had two sets of monitors and just wanted a third pair because I love speakers, so I got the KRK Rokit 8s. Before purchasing them somebody warned that these may be too much for a bedroom producer like me; the guy was absolutely right...bu…

  • Quad Hifi 303

    Quad Hifi 303 - "British class"

    07/08/14

    The main features are well described in previous reviews. The Quad 33 is intended to be coupled with the 303, which is dated in terms of conception and reliability. Avoid it unless you find it at a collector's house almost new (which is pretty rare)…

  • Dynaudio BM5A Compact

    Dynaudio BM5A Compact - pebbonnet's review

    04/18/14

    Active speakers with high-pass and low-pass filters that you can set to + or -3, 6 or 9 db, if I remember correctly. Near-field, in my view you shouldn't use them more than 6-8 ft away. For professional use. They are somewhat limited for use with m…

  • Yamaha MSP5

    Yamaha MSP5 - "Exceptional"

    04/09/14

    I've had the Yamaha HS50M, good speakers, but these one are CLEARLY better from any point of view: Impeccable finish, crystal-clear sound. They are small but weighty! They are perfect for a home studio, the best ones I've ever had. Right from the ins…

  • Neumann KH 120 A

    Neumann KH 120 A - "Stunningly accurate. Not expensive."

    03/27/14

    • Which technical specifications motivated your choice? Irreproachable German construction. The fact that Neumann uses such strict technical specs that they consider all KH120 to be matched. And you can see and hear that right out of the box. The …
