Well, depends on how are you going to solve the acoustical issues. As you probably know, all speakers will be considerably inaccurate in frequency response as well as stereo imaging (How much? It has to be measured.) unless the placement is done optimally and there's at least some kind of acoustic treatment. If you can solve the acoustical problems to a ...

I don't know what speakers are best. I use 5 Genelec 8030s in my home studio with a 15" Blue Sky Sub and controller. I don't find them fatiguing at all, but rather too open and transparent in the highs to translate perfectly to cinemas. Without the sub they are wanting in the lows. They get plenty loud, unlike the Blue Sky monitors I've used in the past. ...

I vouch for the JBL LSRs. The workhorses are the 4328P's, I've lost count of how many near/mid-field stages and edit suites in LA I've been in which had these installed (and that's not even mentioning stages running the Cinema Series horns behind a perf screen). Even the 6300 series is common to find in rooms. The one caveat is that a single 4328 cabinet ...

You have experienced a high quality system in a controlled environment. You may not be able to duplicate it exactly in your room but you can vastly improve your room experience and over time, as your budget allows, you can improve it. Since you say your music consumption comes in the form of digital files on your Iphone you need to start educating ...

I recommend splitting your budget to buy an additional pair of headphones and spend the rest on the best 8 inch driver monitors you can afford (used Mackie HR824s for instance). In the end you need your work to translate as good as possible to the other studios. This means you need to hear full bandwidth (including sub) and be very sure your listening ...

To spare you a possible mistake, I'll recommend your steer away from Adam A7's. I am not talking about the A7X's which I don't own or even know, but the A7's. The reason for this is, I have had a pair for several years and even though I have been really pleased with how they sound, it has turned out that the buzzing sound I ended up getting is a recurring ...

dangerous usually equals loud. Consequently I would recommend a mic that can withstand high SPL. This is most likely to not include any type of condensor mic. Consequently I would recommend using a cheap dynamic mic if you are operating in any high SPL environment. Dynamics are much better at withstanding high SPL or dangerous environments.
