    Studio Monitor Question (For PC)
    Ok, bit new, hopefully I came to right place :D.

    I have a nice PC, lots of music, make my own mixes, etc.

    I dig underground hip hop, electronic music, reggae. So I do like some Bass!


    I have narrowered it down to these selections, I would like some help identifying which speaker to choose!


    1. Tapco by Mackie S.5 Studio Monitors, Set of 2

    Link: http://www.amazon.com/Tapco-Mackie-S...912538&sr=1-10

    Price: $300.00

    Notes: These were my first choice, but recently I have been looking around and im really interested in this:

    2. KRK RP5G2 Rokit G2 5In Powered Studio Monitor Ea

    Link 1: http://www.amazon.com/KRK-RP5G2-Powe...ref=pd_cp_MI_1

    Price: $150.00 + $150.00 = $300

    Notes: I have always been interested in KRK, however, while searching I found this link


    Link: http://www.amazon.com/Monitors-Whirl...ref=pd_cp_MI_1

    Is this ^^ to good to be true? I get all that for $300.00 ? Is this the way to go?

    Also, whats the big differences bewteen the different series of KRK RP 5/ 6 / 8? Is it that much worth it to go from 5 to 6, or to 8??


    3. Mackie MR5 (Pair) Reference Monitors

    Link : http://www.amazon.com/Mackie-MR5-Pai...6389500&sr=8-2

    Price: $360.00

    4. M-Audio Studiophile BX5a Deluxe 70-watt Bi-amplified Studio Reference Monitors

    Link: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...TGUFA&v=glance

    Price: 299.00

    Notes: My friend had these, said they were good, but originally they were 217.00 the other day, now they are 300.00 I doubt id be looking into these.





    ANY help is appreciated, if you have any other studio monitors I should be looking into for around the price of $300 below, that'd be great. Really looking forward to replys.

    Thank you sincerely,
    Ron.

    The only 2 worth looking at are the Mackies and M-Audio, go with a 5" or 6" and add a sub later...

    Well...
    In my years of recording I've used all the the speakers listed above, if not that actual monitor, a close relative or predecessor. Professionally speaking I prefer Tannoy for studio monitors but I've also used the bigger model KRK's. I mostly use Mackies for live work, not recording. Everything you list should do you fine but I'd personnaly go with Mackie. I've used M-Audio sound cards but not their monitors.
