Entry-level monitors for mixing?

Postby HayleyMills728 » Fri Jul 24, 2020 2:05 am

Hey team, keen to grab some entry level ($300-400) monitors and want to crowdsource opinions.

Currently looking at Presonus' 3.5 or 4 inch pair, but am open to other options.

I’ve always liked the Presonus Eris, very good for the money, you’ll get lots of opinions, but honestly, you won’t go far wrong with these, well balanced sound, lots of detail.
I’d definitely put them on my shortlist, they do a 5 and an 8 inch.

I'd suggest getting a listen to the Adam T5 and T7 monitors as well as the Kali Lp-6s.
It's a very competitive area of the market so definitely worth finding somewhere you can listen to them to see what works for you.

Baxmusic have the Pioneer RM-05 for around £350 for a pair at the moment.

I picked a pair up, and though I haven’t spent much time with them, I am impressed.

The SOS review was extremely positive (also see the RM-07 review), and that was with an RRP of close to £1000.
