Decent studio monitors for under £200????
 
I need some new monitors. Any suggestions? My budget is £200

With that budget I would rather get decent headphones instead, audio-technica ATH-M50 for example (about 130 GBP).

I second that, 200 quid is a bit thin for monitors. Check eBay, you never know what might be going.

I'll have to disagree with the other two posts, 200 dollar monitors will get you music that transfers better than 200 dollar head phones.

If you want small with a flat response curve check out the edirol ma-15 model. It makes quite a bit of clean sound, its a little off in the low end but it gets the job done. with multiple inputs toslink, coaxial, rca, low-z and front panel knobs to attenuate two different inputs and front mounted headphone jack it is very nice for pulling monitor/computer speaker double duty. They also look nic without being overwhelming.

yes...good advice, do not what ever you do exist with headphones only, you'll only end up remixing when you hear through speakers. saying that, there are pro's and con's, but as this linked article will start off...
"generally, headphone monitoring is almost always only a 'second best' option. The vast majority of recorded sound is intended for listening via loudspeakers and it is important to recognise this fact."

cinema's and hi fi have always been about the speakers. ( ok let the debate begin on that one ;) )

hope it helps cos there are some decent deals out there...sure you can't stretch with another £80...its a big jump then!

I have the M-audio BX5A's and they are pretty decent monitors for around £150 quid. I also bought the BX10S as the main monitors alone wont reproduce the low end you need, but on there own they are a good starting point. Just add a sub when you save up some more dough!!

thanks guys, i think ima get the M-audio BX5A's
