Studio Monitor Question (For PC)
Ok, bit new, hopefully I came to right place
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
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
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
4. M-Audio Studiophile BX5a Deluxe 70-watt Bi-amplified Studio Reference Monitors
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,

Are you serious?

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.
