i'm new to studio monitors and i'm just wondering what the best bang for my buck would be..
if i dont do any recording or mixing.. will the rp5's be overkill for just listening to mp3's? i found them for $240 a pair and i love how they look.. i really want a reason to buy them but i'm wondering if they're overkill for my situation..
is there a huge difference between the RP5 and M10 in terms of SQ? it's about $120 more so will the average user be able to justify the extra money? will i hear a noticeable difference between the 2?
is the m10 a noticeable upgrade from the Promedia 2.1 or Z-2300? Or are they the same level
or will a simple user like me be satisfied with the m10?
also, how does the alesis m1 active 520 compare with the rp5?
my genres: rap/hiphop (45%), alternative/punk rock (45%), trance (5%), pop (5%)
any comments/suggestions are appreciated... thanks
I bought the small Audio Engine for my daughter's computer and they sound great. At 10 watts with a 3 inch low/mid driver I'd recommend a sub or buying the larger pair which may be out of your budget. The sound quality of the mids/highs though are very good. I don't have any other spekaers of that type to compare them to though, just regular home speakers.
