    Hi, I wonder what speakers would be worth to pair with the D90SE Would the Genelec 8030C Studio Monitors be good? I'd prefer to have my setup with no sub as I live in a flat on a 2nd floor and below me there is a dental clinic room and I don't want to bother anyone (Lulz), I never turn my...

    (Solved) Anyone recognise the base these monitors are sitting on?

    Google search for "studio monitor base plate" and "studio monitor isolation base" turned up nothing. They do not look like the usual angled foam, and instead look like metal? Image is from Adam Audio Twitter page. I know the Studio monitors are sitting on some Isoacoustics product, but I am...

    Genelec 8030c + SVS sb1000pro setup

    I intend to switch from an Audiophonics Hypex Ncore NC252MP amp paired with some old speakers to an active system. So after some consideration my preference would be to try out the Genelec 8030c (balanced XLR in). My current gear and which I would like to integrate: Topping E30+L30 (RCA out) as...

    Would You Rather: Soundstage+Phantom Center OR More Accurate Frequency Response?

    Moved studio monitors from corners to ~30% the length of the side walls closer. They are near the sidewalls, per Genelec recommending keeping them closer, or if there is space making sure they are more than 1.1 meters from the wall. this follows the first rule for the side walls, and the second...

    https://www.pioneerdj.com/en/product/monitor-speakers/vm-80/black/overview/ I saw an article on these when they were released a few weeks ago.

    Studio Monitor Calibration

    Hello there, I have a question. I'm going to calibrate my Kali-Audio LP6 in an acoustically treated room. I will use -20 dB rms pink noise. How I imagine this process - I will place SPL-meter on a "sweet-spot", and then calibrate every monitor individually to -83 dB. My audio-interface is...

    Open vs. closed vs. studio monitors during recording or editing

    This is for voiceover. I was given advice that while recording it's just as well not to use any headphones whilst recording. True? And for editing/processing/mastering studio monitors are best but if without those, use open-back headphones instead. And that semi-open won't do. Do you all agree?

Honestly, I am leaning toward active nearfield monitors as they seem a better bang for the buck at...
