recording problem

hey guys:
I have a zoom G5 and I started recording by pluging it to my pc,
I didn't have any professional audio moniters, so I plugged in a really shitty monitors, he sound was awful, the sound from my amp was better, and that's normal for this shitty monitors, I tried to render it but it wasn't really good.

so my question is: does having a bad moniters affact the sound after rendering it in reaper, or no?

If I bought more professional monitors, will I get better mp3 after rendering?

Professional monitors will not make a better mp3. Mp3 is a lossy format and will not sound as good as a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC.

I have a feeling your source sound is what is bad, and your speakers, whether bad or not, are just playing that bad sound. If it sounds bad in your DAW, it will sound bad no matter how you render it.

Line-recording distorted guitar sounds terrible. Even with an amp emulator, it's not something the G5 is designed for. I did an article on it:
