im looking at these but cant find any reviews really, and they seem to be having a good sale on them.

I was also looking at the tannoy i forget what they are called but they are about 170 each or so.


Basically im just looking to get some monitors to use with my UX1, i get amazing sounds through my headphones but i have poop speakers.

My budget is 300-350 for a pair.

Thanks!

Its true though. I have the Rokit 6's, they are awesome. I bought them over the fives because the 6's can push out more than enough bass for a home studio, where as Rokit 5's sounds without bass, even equed to have the bass really high. Save up for the rokit 6's.

Don't buy behringer monitors i've got some and while they are ok they are built like shit and my volume pot has gone dodgy on it and stops like the right or left side working randomly.. thought i'd learn my lesson with behringer, you get what you pay for though.

studio monitors are completely different then stereo speakers.

Ok,

i have never heard of speakers cutting off sustain before, If it's going in it should be coming back out. Just don't want to see you spend a lot of cash to fix something that won't fix it. In the least they will be better for mixing properly though with recording.

I don't think i have ever played only through monitors which it sounds like your doing,
i have monitored my playing/singing through amps / mics / pa with them and never had sustain problems.

Im saying when i play through my crap speakers bought from walmart they sound like ass compared to my headphones. Im sure these will sound great for playing guitar and such, but idk if im wrong ill just send them back.

simply put.. yet true:p

i think he may be confusing them sounding better than actually functioning as monitors. monitors should accurately replicate the sounds that have been recorded so you can edit it them precisely, whereas most hi fi speakers add a ton of bass which make it sound bigger and often better yet are near useless for mixing

Yes i know BUT he is wanting them to play guitar through them not for studio mixing...if i understood correctly..I use my set up for just playing

he wants to use them for guitar and recording
