I know that monitors are a very personal subject and everyone has their own preference, but having spent hours on the internet looking at the endless reviews and Top 10 lists, I am now quite literally lost and over whelmed. So I’m throwing myself on the mercy of my fellow Steinberg brethren to see what your view is.
I make Techno and all I want to know is what monitors under £1,000 each (i.e. £2,000 a for the pair) should I be auditioning when I go to a store that will cope with what I need from electronic music?
I don’t want to be equally overwhelmed here, I’d just like a list of five monitors to take with me to try.
I had originally wanted to look at Genelec 8030bpm and KRK VTX6, but there seems to be lots of negativity around them when it comes to dance music. One review said that the Event Opal speakers are good, but that would be literally at the top and possibly over my budget.
So hear my prayer o’wizards of sonic. What damn speakers should I be testing!?
