Hi guys,
I'm about to upgrade my "home studio" with some very cheap studio monitors..
I'm thinking between 100-200 $, I was wondering if any of you know about some decent, cheap monitors that are good for mixing and recording.

The local store has the Fostex PM04 for sale, and I was wondering if these are any good?

Thanks,

Matsols

So guys, should I go with the KRK RP-5 or is there anything else that is equally good for that price?

Somebody recommended these to me: M-Audio BX5A

So what do you think?



I think the poll that Moody linked you to tells a big story about KRK's...I like mine!!

Heard good things about m-audio too

the RP-6's are only $100 if you can spring for them.

I'm gonna need some in the up coming weeks and I may go with them or the RP-5's.

generally the more you spend the better you get so if you can, go for the RP6 KRKs. They should be more than enough.

KRK RP5 - $100 each (Lowered from $150 each)
KRK RP6 - $200 each
KRK RP8 - discontinued (Use to be $250 each)

M-Audio BX5a - $200 (set of 2)
M-Audio BX8a - $300 (set of 2)

Mackie MR5 - $150 each
Mackie MR8 - $250 each

*US Currency*
*all prices from Musiciansfriend.com*

The Mackie MR series monitors are new and I have not heard any reviews from them but the prices look great.

edit yea the RP6 monitors are going cheap at GC.
