Default Since i did what do you look at...what do you guys listen to?

Hey guys i got a lot of insight about monitors OR tv's for screens. I am looking to upgrade my monitors when i started school i got some m-audio's and it is time to let them go. I was looking at the Mackie MR8's. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I have a smaller control room and mix a lot of different things from country to hip-hop.

My monitor chain is a Benchmark DAC1 -> Dynaudio BM9 Sub -> Genelec 1030's. A friend of mine recently bought a pair of Adam A5's which sounded good to me. I'll add that I've discovered that the room itself is every bit as important as the speakers.

Yeah i agree with you about the room. I am working on that as we speak. I dont have a whole lot of money to spend on monitors so i guess i'm looking for the bang for buck route. I would LOVE some Genelec's but way out of my range. I could possibly get the Genelec 6010A but eehhh.

I've had a pretty simple (and inexpensive) setup for the past 3 or 4 years. Alesia RA150 amp with Alesis Monitor One Mk2 monitors. I love 'em. No need to change.

Some Yamaha YSM2P monitors. Small monitors, small room, no low end, which would probably have negative effects in a room like mine.

Have you done any acoustic treatment in your room? If not check John Sayers studio design forums. Lots of great info. And a little $$$ spent on treatment will go a lot further than better monitors IMO. Decent monitors in a treated room = good performance. Great monitors in a poor room = bad performance.

What's your budget? No point in recommending $2000 speakers if you have $300 to spend I do have a nice set of Event SP8's available(in Nashville).
