Re: Do you really have to spend big $$$$ to get good monitor

I origionally wondered why not use a set of stereo speakers because that's what you end up listening to the music on. But then I learned a bit about recording and read that studio monitoes are "accurate" so it let's you track/mix better. Hmmm... So is there much of a difference in a good stereo vs. ...

Do you really have to spend big $$$$ to get good monitors??

Do you really need to spend big $$$$ to get decent/good monitors? I'm trying to find out what I need to know to make a good but smart purchase. Guitar center only has so many to listen through... and they want you to buy the expensive ones. Opinions??

Re: coiled cables?

It's not a noise issue, it's a capacitance issue. The argument is that coiling the cables creates capacitance and this effects things. Does ir? Well I couldn't tell ya.

I suppose that if you want to do it the Brian Wilson way, you'll need to experiment with lot's of psychodelic drugs.

It can't be said enough... YOU NEED TO TRY SEVERAL TO WEED OUT THE BAD ONES! I tried 6 out at once and found one reall bad dud, and one fair one... the rest sounded great. They do seem to sound great on vocals, but I havn't tried acoustic guitars, percussions, etc. yet.
