i've been producing with a bose mini soundlink and its time for me to upgrade lol. i been researching alot on what to get.
my budget is around 150-250$ a pair
i have a home studio. i can either set up in my room and settle for a 5". or i can set up in a medium/big room in my home and settle for an 8".
Mackie CR5BT monitors? 5"
these run around 170-220
there isn't much reviews online on these about mixing. and i am unsure if i should settle for these. or maybe i should get these for now and save up for some HS8s along the way
Monoprice 8" monitors?
these run around $200-250 a PAIR!!
the reviews say these are equivalent to the bx8's but they are half the price.
i'm not too sure. what do you guys think?
I saved the extra money for the HS8's and i love them! they sound great and its super easy to mix on them.
i'd go for the medium/big room with an 8". better acoustics that way (https://www.acousticfields.com/small-and-large-room-acoustics/) as well as an easier time mixing in the low-end (regardless, id keep a decent pair of headphones around to help mix in the low-end).
im gonna hope you get some acoustic treatment before anything else (and/or https://www.sonarworks.com/speakers as well as https://www.sonarworks.com/systemwide to use outside your daw)... sonarworks on its own is actually pretty good though LOLOL...
@Kency yup the HS8's are the best but i don't got the budget atm. for sure i will have a pair in the future tho
@asidRn thanks for the sonaworks link. ill take a look at it
