For some time I've been thinking of getting some studio monitors.
My room is a little one, but there are many speakers these days that can hopefully suit my needs, and that shouldn't be a problem.
I have PC, some midi-keyboards, guitars ect..and here and then love to record something using DAW.
Speakers I have now are some Creative 5.1. which I lined two on the left side, two on the right, and the sub on the floor.
For the movies..listenig music and so on..they are just fine.
What I don't like, is a bunch of cables
And I don't like the idea that if I record and mix some music (using those little speakers and sub) the sound I get IS NOT the sound it should be (right?)
So I'd like more, just a pair of studio monitors instead.
BUT! (finaly the question)
Will they be ok for music? movies, youtube and so on?
I know some guys actualy use those kind of speakers for everything, but I kinda love to hear the warm softy bass, especialy during some movie..
And, as I want to get rid of actual speakers (subwoofer too. Don't want anything on the floor), and to have JUST two of them - would that be a good idea?
I keep reading that studio monitors are good, precise (better than PC etc..) and especialy that Hi-Fi monitors are totally different story (the sound after mixing, isn't the same we usualy hear trough Hi-Fi speakers, right?)
So, as I understand, people need studio monitors so they can hear let's say, final version of their music. But that version cannot be final one, because it's going to﻿ sound differnet through other, probably cheaper, or collored Hi Fi speakers, right? So my questin is - why not mix trhough Hi Fi speakers at first place?
I'm not gonna solve this problem if I buy let's say..a pair of Adam's or KRK rocket..and
1. not be able to listen movies as I usted to.
2. OR - if I must keep this 5.1 system (then I'll get just more cables, and more mess in my room, which I'd like to avoid)
Hope made my question clear..
