I have a bit of a problem. I have my own project studio (24 track hard disk and a 48 channel mixer with a bunch of hard synths). I use Sonar and Sibelius for everything.
Right now I have a pair of Event 20/20 BAS speakers which I love and still intent to use. However I was just given a Mctintosh 2300 amplifier in great shape. I want to utilize it in the studio but I can’t afford real expensive studio monitors.
Looking around with my small budget, I’ve seen a few brands like the Yamaha BR15 or the Yamaha BR12 which are pretty inexpensive. There are a few other brands like Peavy that have a similar product at a similar cost.
A few friends of mine told me that with the Mcintosh I really should be using a better studio monitor rather than the PA speakers I can afford.
Is it worth it to get the lower cost PA speakers or should I just bite the bullet and sell the Mcintosh (they are going for $1700 and up and stick with my 20/20 BAS.
